Gold Bug-2 Nugget Detector (Fisher-Gold Bug-2)
Find Gold with Fisher's 71-KHz, Deep-Search Nugget Detector with a Lifetime Warranty
Extraordinary sensitivity, ultra-high operating frequency, iron discrimination, dust and moisture resistance, audio boost and the ability to operate in highly mineralized soil.
Now you can hunt with the next generation Gold Bug-the Gold Bug-2. Fisher engineers worked years to build a detector that would carry on the Gold Bug's well-deserved reputation as the world's premier nugget hunter, and here it is the Gold Bug-2. Like the original Gold Bug, the Gold Bug-2 is designed from the ground up for the sole purpose of finding gold nuggets.
Using low-noise, precision-matched, temperature compensated components and state of the art circuitry, the Gold Bug-2 takes prospecting to a new level. 71 KHz the highest operating frequency on the market. The result: Increased sensitivity to smaller and deeper nuggets in highly mineralized soil.
Switch on the Gold Bug-2's High Mineralization Mode. and you can hunt gold-bearing areas that were previously off limits. Flip a switch for the Gold Bug's Audio Boost Mode and hear those faint. deep signals. or use the new Iron Discrimination Mode to help avoid hot rocks and ferrous targets. Meanwhile, a dust- and moisture-resistant control housing helps keep your Gold Bug in peak operating condition.
The Gold Bug is backed by a Lifetime Warranty - On All Fisher Hobby Detectors and the commitment to quality that goes into every Fisher detector.
