Sovereign GT


Hello All just a question I have the opportunity to buy a really nice Sov. GT I hunt Civil War relics in Northern Va and have read a lot of personal reviews on the machine and a few guys say they have a problem punching through the ground with it (hot ground) the one review I do respect is Keith Southern and said his favorite plate machine is his Sov XP 2 because of ferrous and non-ferrous separation around old house sites I know they are great beach machines but I all ready own a Excal II 800 I know it a personal choice rather to spend 500.00 dollars on a like new machine but there is still plates abound here. Maybe a little feedback might be helpful. Thanks Phillip.

I had one that I used for coin hunting and am in central Va.
Although it performed well in some sites around here, it did not like this red clay we have which I am sure you are familiar with.
My Equinox 800 for some reason seems to handle this ground much better.
In red clay areas, my Sovereign would be in a constant null unless I set the sensitivity down low… it just did not like that clay.
