Most helpful review for Minelab Eureka Gold

Eureka gold
After reading the manual and using all the settings in mineralised soil, and some of my own settings,it picked up a lot of hot rocks and iron and did not punch through the soil like the ads state or reject hot rocks, nor did it pick up gold that I ran across the coil, this detector needs a lot of improvements to really make it a usable unit tone ID would be a nice feature to start with, for the price you could buy a lot better detector from another manufacturer. This unit was a total waste of money, minelab got me to buy once but never again!!!!!!!

Lobo Super Traq
Best all around coin, relic, machine I have ever owned. No nuggets yet, or at least not gold ones, found a couple pounds of lead/galena nuggets up in Wisconsin, at least 50 pieces of gold and silver jewelry, several chains, and over 500 bucks in clad and pennies.

Best all around coil is the 9x8, pinpoints extremely well and detector has VCO pinpoint and auto ground tracking in all metal mode. THe only misgivings I have with it are that it hates water. I have had to return it 4 times now for retuning and they always accuse me of water damage.

I bought a Headhunter Diver last year and it is the best for ring hunting in water. The LST is a keeper. I have 4 coils for mine, hope to use the new Tejon 10x12 coil with it when it comes back from retuning. I always get my LST tuned to the 9x8 coil in disc mode for max depth, like a foot on gold rings.

This is the only detector I have ever owned that will go deeper on gold jewelry, by 3-4 inches, than on, say a silver quarter, about 8 inch on the quarter and 12 inch on a heavy gold ring, AFTER the retune.

It comes stock with a 5 x 10 elliptical which is harder to pinpoint with. Gimme that 9x8 anyday. I guess the 5x10 is what is preferred for nugget hunting but I still say the 9x8 is the best coil for this unit.
