GoldFinder2 Metal Detector Review
August 5 2016 - Review by Joe McGregor
At first I was quite pessimistic about how well it would perform, however I have to eat my words (very happily).
These are a very good quality machine, the display is easy to read and the interface is extremely easy to understand and master.
Most of you would have a tendency to rubbish Chinese units - with good reason- but after running this one through some tough testing I can say that the GF2 is a very good machine.
Pros. Light weight, well balanced & easy to swing.
Audio options provide a clean, crisp response across a wide range of terrain, very quiet on highly mineralized ground.
User interface is very friendly and easy to master. Display is clear and accurate. If it says it's a pull tab it IS a pull tab! Trigger pinpointing gb makes for fast grabs and gb. One handed operation for changing settings and frequency.
Cons. At times the 11" DD was very chatty in high trash areas. Depth readings in pinpoint mode is a best an estimate.
All in all I have been impressed by this unit and for the money it is very hard to beat in my opinion. ($550).
I would strongly encourage anyone who is looking for a cheap unit or just getting into our hobby give the GF2 a go, you will not be disappointed and those more experienced hunters this would only serve to enhance our arsenal."

"Hi again peps. This is my last summary of the GF2.
I like it! Clean audio although I'm not sure about the db setting, sounds a lot like Star Wars.
However for the price these units will be very hard to beat.
A great unit whether starting out or an experienced hunter everyone will find this very user friendly.
Now I've said my piece I strongly encourage you to have a try."
