Why do I rarely see used G2+'s

I think most people want to hold onto them once they get them & see what they can do.-----The G2+/F-19's are just beautiful running/performing detectors.----I (and others) consider them "sleeper" machines.-----They are not the deepest machines in the wild west but they have a LOT going on for them.
for sale on ebay? Do people hold on to them or is there just not many being used.

Can you imagine a G2+ with boost mode. Would be a killer for sure. I’d be swinging that detector instead of the T2.

Made that comment on another forum. BP on the g2 would be superb for deep lead and other deep relics. Yep that would replace my t2 for sure. They just have such good manners in iron and I connect with the audio so well. I would probably not part with my Gold Bug Pro. It has found a shelf full of deep cw lead with the strike 12x13 in a super EMI site where other folks just can’t hunt.

I, too, would love a G2+ with a BP mode. My G2+ with the 5x10 coil is my number #1 machine out of six.. First time out with G2+, first coin found....1855 gold half dollar. At a site I had hunted many times with other detectors.
I won't be selling mine any time soon. In fact, I'm looking for a backup unit.

I have bought and sold so many detectors in the last few years........ The only one that I always miss when I sell one is a Gold Bug Pro, F19 or especially the G2+ straight shaft with the 10X5" coil. If they had more tone options in discrimination mode, numerical target ID in all metal mode and a quick and easy way that is factory installed to switch from all metal to disc and back I would still own one for gold prospecting and relic hunting. Even without those added features, they are fantastic detectors. The Makro Racer 2 has those features and a few more, which is why I own one instead........but I still miss the G2+!!!
