    Yeah but it will give me countless hours of frustration:rolleyes: I work out of town for weeks at a time usually and space is tight so better then no detector i hope. and if it disappears no big loss.

    Don't know anything about that machine, but I have owned many machines, from Tesoro beep and digs, all the way up to the high-end machines. I have finally come to the conclusion that my Simple Tesoros fnd just as much as the very expensive "bells and whistles" machines. Good Luck!

    yeah i have two Tesoros and love them both! But for under $100 i couldn't pass it up. I could take my Compadre but I'd hate to break or lose it, kinda like an old pair of boots. My grand son may take a liking to the go find or i might sell it if i don't like it. I won't get it for a week or so. Grandson is analog challenged so the Go-find should be more interesting to him.

    Backwater, it sounds as though you may have just acquired a new digging partner. Best of Luck to the two of you.

    It may look like a toy but it is actually quite a capable little detector, very similar to an Ace 250 or 350. and that price is a steal. Good luck with it.
