Good Solid Machine

April 03, 2006
This is a very good machine for the price. Good depth and penetration in all sorts of soils. The manual ground balance is a breeze to use and adjust. It does, however, take some hours to be comfortable to use as it is definitely not a 'set and forget' machine. I actually enjoy the tuning and driving of the Scorpion. The small 3 x 7" elliptical coil is very sensitive and I found this easier to use and balance as a beginner before using the 5 x 10" coil. Overall, I recommend the Scorpion to beginners, a little patience and you will be very happy with this machine.

Overall Rating 5 stars!

I was missled while purchasing this detector .I am a begining prospector and I wanted a machine that would help me pinpoint areas to prospect.First of all the machine is by no means for a beginner,the instructions are very confusing,ground balance...hah..what a joke.I cant do it for nothing.So here I sit with a piece of equipment that does not do me any good.Is there such a machine that is sensitive enough to find gold but easy to use yet inexpensive.surely there must be.Dont make the same mistake I did.Talk to a dealer in person and get to know the product before purchasing it.I do not recommend on line purchase for a beginner.

i found that the stinger was hard to use. the instructions for setting it up were a little confusing. all in all not for a beginner at gold detecting.

Scorpion Gold Stinger

I use the Stinger for prospecting here in N.M. and have found a lot of nuggets with it. It is simple to use and I can find coins and relics with it also. It is not a $3000 minelab but it works for me. Some of the dirt in too hot for this detector but it is allright for the soil down here in N.M. For the price it is the way to go.

Overall Rating 5 stars!


Garrett needs to upgrade this one.

Owned this detector for a year and detected all over the Rocky Mountains with it.

It may have been a great detector years ago when
it first came out, but it's below the standards of
today's detectors. My Garrett Ace 250 works better as a gold detector than the Scorpion.

Overall Rating 5 stars!
