A Closer Look At The " Other " Minelab Gold Monster 1000 Rod Assembly

Recommended Posts

This is a previously posted screenshot from the Minelab introductory video of the GM1000. I did a little quick paste work to block out distractions in the screenshot. Its worth a little study as regards the rod assembly. The GM1000 here is sporting the 5" round coil.

Theoretically one could use a piece of pvc pipe just long enough to accommodate the 5" round coil and the control/handle assembly, and voila - an ultra portable pinpointer with iron discrimination.

I have seen supported hand grips similar to this style on cheap china products.....  Here is an example of one version.
