170-150226 In the Treasure Corner - A $12,500 Metal Detector

New Minelab gold detector:  $12,499.00
Most expensive Garrett gold detector:  $799.95*


Is any detector worth twelve and a half thousand dollars?  Are you buying more than just the parts that make up this machine?  What exactly does "up to 40% more depth" mean? 

On the other hand, if you live in gold country, one good find could pay for this machine.  This is head-swimming territory, and I'm not sure how to handle it.  What do YOU think?

*(To be fair, Garrett also has a deepseeker detector package at $3,280, but that one comes with two coils and several accessories and does much more than find gold.)

  • Brilliant, Dan! No, not the $12,500.00 detector, that thing is too rich for my blood. What is brilliant is the idea you have given me on how I can trick dear sweet wifey and get me a $1000.00 detector. Now, I just have to work up the courage to go through the spill! This may or may not work but it is sure worth a try! If I post again, you will know it worked. If you do not hear from me, then.......
