Official Go-Find 22, 44, & 66 Release

Recommended Posts


“Three new models are now available – the GO-FIND 22, 44 and 66, which will replace the GO-FIND 20, 40, and 60 models. New GO-FIND Series models have been designed with increased sensitivity so that targets can be identified at greater depth when compared to the original GO-FIND Series models. The new models are constructed using the same proven collapsible, lightweight platform and feature the same easy-to-use consumer interface which the original GO-FIND Series successfully brought to market in 2015. New GO-FIND Series models feature proprietary Minelab VFLEX digital electronics to enhance standard single frequency VLF detection technology.”

Not bad for the 8 - 12 year olds they are intended for. I would not have shown them in the video as being in the same class as the rest of the Minelab lineup. Especially now that you can get an X-Terra for about the same money. Though it does sound like they now have the same guts as an X-Terra and the 66 might serve some people well as a detector to stuff in a rucksack or under the car seat.

I have not been able to find any description or review that talks about specific changes to the physical design. The last time I had hands on with a Go-Find I pulled the coil to extend the rod out and the whole coil/lower rod just pulled right out. Guess I pulled too hard. Then I pinched a finger collapsing the unit. Handle on the old model seemed loose. So yes, tweaking/firming up the physical design was something I really wanted to see, but no evidence of it yet.

Although it sounds like the new models are packing an X-Terra circuit and therefore should be acceptable performers, I have a hard time thinking of the Go-Finds as being anything more than a kids detector though, primarily because of the limited target id info. The three preset non-ferrous zones on the 66 is pretty minimal. It would get the job done though and I can’t deny it would be easy to stuff in a rucksack or under a car seat.

If Minelab is true to their word the new Go-Finds are the last single frequency detectors we are going to see from a Minelab.

      Curious if anyone has done this comparison yet. I once had a few Xterra but they are long gone. Thinking of the little vanquish again. 
      So has anyone compared these by chance?

      Well I have always been curious about them. Have watched several videos but never held one. 
      So are there any safari users here or has everyone jumped on the equinox wagon?
      All input from previous users are welcome as well
      Or please state the reason why you moved from the safari.

      I have just joined your site and it's excellent. Over the last 3 years I have been Detecting with a V440 then a GM1000 for Gold prospecting in the back blocks of queensland australia. I have in my backyard buried coins and lead sinkers for experience and learning. I recently purchased a go find 66 to play with as I am an old coot thus I would rather walk all day and only dig down to 6in than digging all day deep down for nails. I found with the GF66 in heavy clay that it will pick up 10 and 8mm lead balls at 3in no problem but is marginal on 6mm, very iffy. Now if I use the pinpointer on the GF 66 it finds it no problem loud and clear. I am intrigued as to why. Is it using a higher frequency or a smaller virtual coil. In retrospect I feel it could be a change in volume so please  ignore. 
      ON a second observation    $1 8in.   $1  6in.   5c 2in.    5c 4in   lead 10mm 3in.  8mm 2in.   6mm 2in. 4mm 2in
                       GM1000                NO.       NO.       YES.        YES.                  YES.              YES.      YES.       YES
                      GOFIND66.           YES.        YES.      YES.         YES.                YES.           YES.       NO.       NO     
                         GOFIND22              YES           YES.        YES.          YES                    YES.             YES.        YES.       50/50
      Tests done in mineralised soil GM 6 all metal. GF22. and GF66 Max. Sensitivity all metal. Interesting result. As I don't dig below 6in and prefer to spend more time covering an area than digging in lesser known locations. 
      QUESTION. CAN YOU USE THE GF22 8in coil on the GF66 if you made an adapter?

      Hi folks,
      I've been a couple times diving in two different spots the last week and cause of a ton of new sand, working at a deeper area, less pounded by the most of the army.
      As usual, my camera was out of service in the moment of glory and there's no footage as I left It once and discharged another time😤...
      Aniway, two fishes for the week...Too bad...trust me😑
      Both 18k bands
