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!!!!!!!

Great gold detector
I am extremly pleased with my Goldbug 2. This detector picks up gold so small that its hard to find. It will also pick up all other metals also so be ready to do a lot of digging. If its small gold you want to find I have never seen another detector that will work as good as the Goldbug 2.
