Beware of Chinese Knock off Machines GF2
« on: November 03, 2017, 08:35 AM »
Hi Guys

It has come to my attention that there is a Chinese Knock off of the Teknetics that flooded into the country.

Named the :(Gold finder 2). Being a Teknetics User my self I recommend you stay away from these machines as they will only disappoint you especially the new people in the Hobby. Please always make sure you know who your buying from before investing money into the Hobby. This machine is selling all over Gumtree and Bidorbuy,Shopmad. These machines don't work!!!

Take care and happy Hunting

Hi, thanks for the info Mike  :) Like Paul says no Chinese detector has been good. Rather save the extra money and buy a known brand. :)

Cheers and Happy hunting

Wish I read your blog two weeks ago. I bought one from banggoods. Tried to use it once and it kept giving me false signals. It's been lying in my garage ever since. Rubbish.
