Argus German Detector goes 3.5 meter!???

Argus GD 5005 B (German): Is it the Mercedes or BMW of Detectors or....

They look and sound good according to their website but i am no expert.

They say that they go down to 3.5 meter with a diameter 280mm coil and deeper with monster coils (biggest coil:2 by 1 meter!).

The discrimination is suppose to be awesome....

They cost Euro 4000. They have an even better version (GD 5005 C) that costs Euro 5800 (only visible on german language side).

Its a lot of dosh but, if true, should pay for itself in 'no time'.

Might be a 'mission' to dig 3.5 meter holes!!!

Can someone enlighten me (and others).

Has someone got any experience with one.

Can someone check the theory behind them out.

The website is www.electron.de. (click english language version, little english flag in top right hand corner).

Cheers. AL.

Couldn't find an English language verstion

Hello,

take a look here:

http://www.electron.de/englisch/php/artike...Goldsuchger%E4t

Looking at all the specs, I smell a Foster ripoff utilizing twin micro's. No ground

balance meaning little use in the goldfields. The lesser models don't even have

auto-tune (SAT), you have to press a button to re-stabilize :tisc-tisc: !!

Yet again, we see the Germans trying to catch up and failing dismally. The 2 most

basic requirements for a stable, gold seeking PI are GB and SAT, these units seem

to have neither??? High power (a-la Foster 'afterburner') of 21V means a lot of heat

both in the box and coil. Hell, I can achieve 3.5m on my car with an 11" coil on my

GP3000 :laught16: !! Note they don't say how big the item is! Have yet to see a

German made unit that was worth half of their price. Don't waste your money!

Thanx, Andy

Good on you Andy, sort those Germans out....But i think they COULD build an awesome unit if they put their mind to it....need to give them an 'ear full' so they get their s..t together....but cheap it wouln'd be.... Cheers
