Need info no, bring me up to speed.

Ok, I bought my first detector around 1978-9 and gave it a good flogging with many detectors over the years till I moved over to the coast  in Feb 1999. The best I had was a SD 2000. Now I know what that and the 16000 and my Fishers all could do but, am curious to find out about these 5 and 7 thousand dollar Minelabs do in comparison. Do they go deeper or find smaller bits. My SD 2000 probably found a  1 grammer at about 80mm to 90mm, or a 30 grammer at about 300mm to 400mm. Please don't pin me down on those measurement as I am rattling my 76 year old brainbox. What I would like to know  roughly is, what are these new fangled machines doing in comparison. To put it simply, does double the money get double the results?

Gday Simmo
Not twice the results mate but they're truckloads better to use. Can't speak about the 7k but the 4500,5000 are a different world to the 2000 in that you can hear what's going on without all the ground noise and hot rocks. Same depths but.

you can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be a hundred Very Happy
