Fisher Gold Bug 2 Pro Metal Detector
If it's in the Ground or in the Water a Fisher Metal Detector will Find it!
Take Gold Detecting to a New Level with the Ultra High Frequency Gold Bug 2
Use Standard or as Hip-Mount
(belt not included)
Like the original Gold Bug, the Gold Bug 2 is designed for finding gold nuggets. It offers extraordinary sensitivity, ultra-high frequency (the highest operating frequency on the market), iron-discrimination, dust and moisture resistance, audio-boost and the ability to operate in extremely mineralized soil with a 3-position mineralization switch. It comes with either a 6.5" or a 10" elliptical search coil for the same great price.
Now with the ultra-high operating frequency, the highest one on the market, combined with iron discrimination, you'll be striking it rich in no time! Using low-noise, precision-matched, temperature-compensated components and state-of-the-art circuitry, the Gold Bug 2 takes prospecting to a new level. The 71 kHz operating frequency gives increased sensitivity to smaller and deeper nuggets even in highly mineralized soil. With the Gold Bug 2's audio boost and iron discrimination mode you can now hear those faint, deep signals while avoiding hot rocks and ferrous targets.
Extraordinary Sensitivity, Ultra High Operating Frequency, Iron Discrimination, Dust and Moisture Resistance, Audio Boost and the Ability to Operate in Highly Mineralized Soil
Now you can hunt with the next generation Gold Bug - the Gold Bug 2. Fisher engineers worked years to build a detector that would carry on the Gold Bug's well-deserved reputation as the world's premier nugget hunter, and here it is, the Gold Bug 2. Like the original Gold Bug, the Gold Bug 2 is designed from the ground up for the sole purpose of finding gold nuggets. Using low-noise, precision-matched, temperature-compensated components and state-of-the-art circuitry, the Gold Bug 2 takes prospecting to a new level - 71 kHz - the highest operating frequency on the market. The result: increased sensitivity to smaller and deeper nuggets in highly mineralized soil.
Switch on the Gold Bug 2's High Mineralization Mode, and you can hunt gold-bearing areas that were previously off limits. Flip a switch for the Gold Bug 2's Audio Boost Mode and hear those faint, deep signals. Or use the new Iron Discrimination Mode to help avoid hot rocks and ferrous targets. Meanwhile, a dust and moisture resistant control housing helps keep your Gold Bug 2 in peak operating condition.

Review by George on August 2, 2019I bought this years ago, had to do an air test immediately to compare with my buddy's P.I. detector. I had 3 small flakes (I mean small) of gold in a vial and this machine picked it up to about 4 inches. No other has done that yet. If you're looking to find gold in creek beds, wet or dry, in and around rocks, this will definitely find it for you. I added the large 14 inch coil for added depth. It's compact and simple enough to use. I recommend reading, and bringing along the manual for reference.

Q: Can you tell how far down can I go back to detect down into the ground I believe there are two of this itemThank you very much sincerely John DavisA:
Most people contact us to know the depth a metal detector can go. There are a lot of factors that play a part in depth. Most hobby detectors are VLF (very low frequency) and the depth depends on the soil conditions and the target size. When it comes to hobby detectors, we like to safely say the size of the coil is about how deep it will go. For example an 11 inch coil will typically pick up targets at 11 inches.
