Just bought me a G2+

I just sold off 3 Tesoro's but kept my Compadre. I also have a F19 with 5x10 that I use mostly for parks. I plan to use G2+ with 7x11 for relic hunts mostly. I hunt some relic sights downtown and I needed something bomb resistant to emi...lol.

Very wise decision (IMO) keeping the F-19 & G2+.-----My wife & I both own/use the F-19's & have the FT 7X11" (I call it a "halibut" coil):), 5X10" DD, 5" DD and 13" DD Ultimate coils for them.-------I can't say enough good things about the F-19/G2+---they are such great, productive little detectors.----I know one thing--we will always have them in our arsenal.--------Del

At this time I own an ORX w/ 9” X35 and hf coils, and a WS4 headset for the expanded options it gives , as well as one equinox w/11” coil and another w/ 6” coil. Used to have an f75 and t2. Still, I think I’ll eventually get a g2+or f19 because of how many good things I’ve read about them.

The F75 and T2 present a lot of capabilities that the 19khz stuff doesn’t. Depth, tones, speed ( in some modes) , better battery life by a country mile...
The g2/f19 does 3 things extremely well for me that make it productive. First, it is EMI resistant beyond any other machine I’ve used. And with any coil, too. Secondly, it’s ability of shallow unmasking in dense iron is 2nd to none. It can use a fast or slow sweep. Thirdly, it’s 2 tone audio is perfect. It doesn’t false bad in iron and when it does squeal it’s worth digging. (Axe heads, horse shoes, spikes, good iron). It has a “lock-on” factor in iron and emi where the non ferrous just punches through. It’s challenge it getting truly deep targets in disc mode. It will ID to the fringe of depth in my soil. It’s a great tool.

I also use a G2+,Great performer in
Nail infested sites and I also use it in open fields with the 13” Ultimate
Coil,Going to have to try that NEL Superfly coil.Great Machine

It's a great machine. I like my F19 but now prefer the stick handle of my G2+. A higher tone would make it stand out for old coins but I don't think that will ever happen. like IowaRelic mentioned, the stability of the ID at all depths is kind of unique. Also, no matter how bad the ground is it will keep its composure.

I expect they have stopped production of F19 & G2+ being they have moved it to Bounty Hunter line. I have also noticed some dealers out of inventory and wonder if something new is coming out.

I’m on the fence about trading my Simplex for one.. what do you guys think?
No. The simplex is deeper and is enjoyable in a variety of park/yard and relic scenarios. It offers a lot of things the g2 does not. The g2 has even less adjustments than the simplex if you can imagine that. When the simplex gets a nice and small coil it will be neck and neck or possibly surpass the g2 in shallow ferrous / non ferrous separation I do own both, as you know. I keep the simplex in the truck for all types of sites. I keep the g2 only for high emi and dense iron, old sites. It’s my primary machine for old field sites.
Now, I’ve added a Patriot for the park/yard/curbstrip scene.

If you must have one, there was a time ranger pro in the classified all little while ago for 250. Good deal. The one I had was a good performer. The simplex has a lot to offers and I think you’d feel like you lost out by just having a g2. JMO. You know me, gotta have both!

I don't have a simplex but another detector from Nokta that works well on old coins. I would not trade it for my G2+ alone. The F19/G2+ are great detectors but they have a few limitations that become obvious in certain situations. Just having a number of tone choices is a big plus for the simplex. The G2+ is a very good dig-it-all detector. Not so great for cherry picking silver and copper coins in trashy areas.

As IowaRelic mentioned, if you can afford it, get one and keep your simplex.

What I was planning on using it for is exclusively for relic hunting in iron infested spots in the country. For coinshooting I have an Etrac which does that job very well IMO. I don’t hunt very many spots with modern trash since my relic sites are way out in the farmlands where the last activity was 100 years ago, and I think the G2 would do that great. Since I live in a pretty small town there’s not much trash in the parks and the coins are deep. And in home sites, the owners don’t want me digging too deep anyway lol the G2 would do just fine I think. But I’ll watch the comparison videos and make an informed decision. Thanks guys.

As far as cost effective, you’d have to get the g2 AND a small coil to get the most out of in the iron. Since you already have a simplex, you just need that little nel when it drops.

On the way to me new g2+ camo edition!!
Have wanted one for a while to top off my klan of detectors. If I like it spun the road small coil will be added. What’s the deal with this new superfly coil, and what little NEL are you referring to, IowaRelic?

On Nel’s website, there is a photo of a simplex wearing the “snake” coil. It’s a 6.5”x3.5” dd. I had one for my gold bug pro. They are fantastic. I now have the “sharp” 5” round for my g2 but have not used it in the field yet. It’s a square nail hunter and I don’t have many old sites like that right now. (My favorite hunting though) The simplex will be killer in iron with that little football or 5” round coils. I was able to push the limits of the simplex in dense iron yesterday afternoon. I could get it to basically null out and stop reporting targets it was so dense of nails. It was strange. I put on the sp24 and tried again, much better separation of the iron targets but still too much for the simplex to take in and process. That’s where higher end machines don’t choke. There is no such thing as too much iron for a g2 with 10x5DD or smaller coil. The g2 can work slow or fast as needed per identification of each target. The simplex likes fast. Which works against it in worst of nails. Just my observation until now. It’s still a blast to use and will find the goods most of the time.

The Superfly coil is pretty great. I like it on my t2. Still need a lot of time with it to see what it can really do in the field.

As for my g2, I’m considering the MGC 13”. It’s so low priced. I had the Cors strike. It was a great coil on the 19khz stuff. I may stick with a 13” for these machines as it does provide I believe to be max depth for them. Right now, I’m broke and have to just enjoy what I got. Which is plenty.
