Backup Detector. Golden Mask.

Post by DelphiOne » Tue Oct 09, 2018 10:35 pm

I have an Equinox 800 and im really happy with it, im thinking of getting myself a backup detctor incase i have problems with the Nox in the future, or just as a change of detector now and again.
So would like an honest opinion from users of the following detectors if possible.
Golden Mask +1 UK15khz and Golden Mask 5+ SE.

I Hunt inland mainly pasture and ploughland, so lots of Coke and iron, do ither of these machines cope with coke and iron very well? The +1 Uk i would call an analogue machine and it does not bother me it's a rotay knob machine as most of my detectors years ago were the same, even when using the Nox i tend to rely on my ears more than the display. Is their a better golden mask Analogue machine on the market. What sort of depth could i expect from both machines, will it be similar to the Nox?

Lastly which Golden Mask would you recommend if any.

hello, as you have a super dooper detector i would go for the 1 + UK, it will null out iron but can pick up large plough shears/ horse shoes as many do, will pick up coke unless you realy understand the sounds and do a reasonable depth, 15KHz, switch on and go and auto ground balance, £267 posted 12 inch coil, standard stem, box covers,

Golden Mask 1 or any of the GM4 range the GM 5 range have poor audio and have had software problems for me its GM4 all the way
The GM 1 does not have auto GB it is fixed to ferrite

or you may wish to go to a better one with a 2 range KHz 8/18 and manual GB like the 4, 8KHz is ideal for pasture, plug in phones or wireless,

GM 1+ with 7" coil

will hit a pre decimal half penny easy at 10" in my ground but is getting towards its max


very good on a cut half ::g


discrimination is also very good.


Will you be digging coke. Yes. Coke varies a lot. But some will give a good signal. With experience you will learn that most has a slightly different sound. More along the lines of a longer muffled beep than a sort sharp beep. Often different from left or right swing.


Lots of cow poo on water logged ground is generally not a good experience with lots o false signals


I only had a short play with one. But I found it preformed almost identical to my Bandido.

Lots of off topic replies removed, the OP is clearly asking about the Golden Mask machine as a back up machine.
Please stay on topic ::g
Thanks

Good job he wasn’t thinking of using a £29 maplins metal detector as his back up machine, we’d just have to wish him good luck I guess :))

hello, if you check out my post on here reference the GM1 + UK doing the iron and coin test, it realy does null out iron and give a good sound on the coin, the 12 inch coil was recommended by a GM dealer in Bulgaria
