The Teknetics G2 metal detector was introduced in 2014 and is still in production. It is a 19 khz VLF metal detector aimed primarily at relic, jewelry, coin, and gold nugget detecting.

"The new G2+ is unique among relic hunting detectors for its versatile function as an all-purpose treasure detector and also its high sensitivity to small gold nuggets. The controls, menu options and features are tailored to relic-hunting, including a sophisticated ground balancing system, separate control over signal gain and threshold and a unique discrimination control system. These features also make for a great gold prospecting detector, especially when the G2+ is outfitted with the optional 5” DD searchcoil. While the G2+ makes for a highly competent coinshooting detector, its user interface and features are not specifically designed for this purpose. As a coin-shooter, you will notice that the G2+ exhibits slightly lower sensitivity to high-conductivity coins, like a U.S. quarter; this is a result of its specialized design to emphasize sensitivity to smaller, lower conductivity metals like relics and gold nuggets. The G2+ is outfitted with a 11”DD open elliptical searchcoil as standard equipment since this searchcoil construction is best-suited to relic-hunting. At the trashiest sites, you may find the smaller optional 5”DD searchcoil makes pinpointing easier, is better suited to penetrate highly mineralized soils and improves target separation."

This is basically just a copy of the review I left for the Fisher F19. The Teknetics G2+ is exactly the same detector but with a different coil and rod setup as normally sold. Electronically and operationally it is the same detector as the F19 with identical performance. I actually kind of prefer the pistol grip design over the S rod on the F19 for comfort but both suit me very well and so frankly its a bit of a toss up for me between the two models.

I am a Fisher Gold Bug Pro fan. The machine is lightweight, easy to use, and very effective for what it is designed for. However, the Gold Bug Pro is somewhat feature limited and the G2+ adds some extra capability that many people would welcome - things like a meter backlight or ferrous volume setting, for instance. This 19 kHz model is a very solid performer on low conductors like gold and small targets like ear rings or small gold nuggets. The 19 kHz platform is a little weak on silver coins but still does very well as a coin hunter. The main thing I like is the light weight, solid performance, and very simple operation. The 19 kHz circuit is also one of the best I have used for ignoring electrical interference in areas where other machines may have issues.

To repeat, the Teknetics G2+ is the same unit electronically as the Fisher F19. The only real difference is the rod and grip assembly and the coil that comes stock. The F19 has the classic "S" rod handle, while the G2+ has a modified "S" rod with pistol grip design some people may prefer.
