Fisher Gold Bug 2 Price Decrease

Recommended Posts

The Minimum Advertised price for the Fisher Gold Bug 2 has been US$764 for many years. I just noticed that at least a couple reputable websites are now advertising the Gold Bug 2 for $699. The Gold Bug 2 is getting a bit long in the tooth, having been in production since 1995, yet you can still argue that to this day no detector does a better job of getting the tiniest gold bits with its little 6" concentric coil.

I am not sure if this is a temporary holiday price decrease, or just a response to all the new competition on the market. Still, I thought I would make a note of it for the Fisher Gold Bug 2 fans out there - you know who you are! :smile: Google search for "fisher gold bug 2"

I can't argue with that Steve. I still use & love my one. That little coil is absolutely bullet proof. :wub: Fisher struck a winner with that simple little set up. Well I think it is simple...bit like me :laugh: It has certainly stood the test of time.....& still holding its head above water. Love it. 👍

All the best out there

      It's going in for repair Tuesday but I thought I'd see if anyone else ever experienced this problem....
      A couple years ago something happened and  I had to use headphones to hear my GB2.  About 6 months ago something happened again and  I could only get audio without headphones.  A week ago I could get both!
       I thought everything was fine.
      Then yesterday, after using it for about 3 hours with headphones, it faded out.  I could just barely hear it.  Nothing at all if I unplugged the headphones.
      Turn it off and then on again, ok for about 10-15 seconds and fades out.  New batteries didn't help.
      Detector was functioning properly except for audio......

      Was thinking of picking up a  more dedicated nugget detector. I am debating a Minelab Gold Monster vs one of the many Gold Bug versions? Anybody have experience with the GM 1000 to compare?

      I really am not bashing the GB II but I just never could connect with the machine. Crummy discrimination and awkward ground balance system combined to make it less than one of my favorite all time detectors. I am not denying it is the best at what it does, I just never liked how it did it. Last fall a friend of mine needed a GB II worse than I did so mine went to a new home where it would find love.
      That left a hole in my detector line up. Yesterday I filled that hole with a Gold Racer, should be here in 3-4 days. I already have a Red Racer so I know the build quality will be good. Look forward to going head to head with Lucky and his Gold Bug in the Sierra hydraulic pits this summer. Me thinks he will be buying the beer at the end of the day. LOL
      p.s. A BIG shout out to Chris Porter at DetectorAid.com for the excellent service!
