Check some more videos from Australian prospectors. Some of them use it for gold prospecting and meteorite hunting. I can get pieces 1x1mm with it...

I only tend to use units that have dealers and can be serviced somewhere in the U.S. The Deeptech machines were all the rage on the forums about three years ago, and I followed them with interest. Seems like a U.S. dealer appeared, there was lots of controversy, they went away, and that was about the end of it.

At 25 kHz it should be hot enough but it never got any airplay in the prospecting community here. There really are just too many VLF machines showing up these days and so it takes something really aimed specifically at prospectors to get any attention.

I did a little more checking and it appears at least one U.S. dealer is stocking the Deeptech Vista Gold - Backwoods Detectors in Tennessee for $679 Review at Gary's Detecting UK

      Hie Steve; Thanks for the discussion about the GPZ 7000 and other gold detectors. I am attracted to a machine that I have never used: the GER Easyway 3D Detector. Do you have experience using this one? What is your comment about it?

      AussieMatt pointed out on another thread that lo and behold, the QED has appeared. I am not going to mess with all the long back history. Instead, it looks like we may finally have a new detector model from an independent designer after so many false starts over the years. If nothing happens to upset the cart reports should be coming in from Australia in the near future.
      Anyway, congrats to bugwhiskers and company. I truly do wish for it to go well for all involved.

      PhaseTech and other GS users, notice you listed a Gold Striker in detector used thread, I preferred the GS over the 17000 on shallow ground but a lot were disappointed with it. Just wondering if it had some special "tweaks" in its electronics? Something a bit diff. other then was a single frequency.

      I admit to have wondered about these little hand held detectors / pinpointers. The main thing being do they really deliver significant depth advantages over standard pinpointers? These are only air tests but at least you get an idea. Nice depth chart at the end of the video you can screen capture.

      Just tested the Exper with these three metals. Although the Exper does not fair well with smaller gold,
      it does have potential for certain applications for larger gold (1/2 oz +).
      Watch this video and believe...
