What About The Fisher Gold Strike


Recommended Posts

Question for Rob, Chris or Steve. Do any of you know why Fisher's Gold Strike never took off and became popular? I got to test one out several years back and it seemed to be a worthy gold machine.

One reason was that the Gold Strike did not have a threshold that we were used to having. We listened for the whispers or faint changes in the threshold to find the dinks.

Steve did  good job of telling everyone.

I too was one of the original testers and met Fred/Lilly Brust at Rey Patch NV.  I found gold with it and in fact one of my favorite OR nuggets I found with one.  I think most folks were not up to snuff on the digital readout.  I actually liked a couple features on it (Digital ID) as I could hunt areas where there was an abundance of a certain target and with the ID system, I just ignored that #, kind of like I can do on the Equinox 800.

The pics are of the OR nugget I found with the Gold Strike.

Looks like you've found a mouth worthy nugget with just about every Detector Gerry 🙂

I don't think this 2 pounder will fit.  I actually found this one with the White's MXT
