Many years ago, I was keen to buy a Compass AU52 via Ebay but missed out by getting outbid on the last 5 seconds. I always wondered what I missed out on....anyone out there owned one, used one or still has one? I'd luv to know how well it runs and whether it matched the Gold Bug 2.

The AU52 was a good idea, but suffered from serious stability and coil knock issues that made the machine very hard to use. I was a big Compass dealer and user at the time, but the Compass factory burned down and the company went out of business not long after the AU52 came out, and it never really did get sorted out as a detector before the end. No way I'd want one over a Gold Bug 2.

OK, good to know. But if I found one for a dirt cheap price, I'd consider it to crack open and fix the coil stability issue maybe....
