Bought it new about 7 months ago. It is the new tone version. Comes with the stock coil (never used). Orignal box and manual. Have to look at the coil and see if it came with a cover. Works excellent, looks excellent.

Asking $325 shipped. USPS Money order or paypal.

Thanks
Mike

Mike I thought you liked the new tones on the Golden? What machine did you replace it with for hunting Jewelry?

I'm going back the DFX.

I'm a little disappointed with Tesoro's management and decided to no longer use or endorse their products.

Hi Mike,

With my summer prospecting winding down I decided to get serious about jewelry detecting again, with the Bigfoot my weapon of choice. Any particular reason for DFX instead of V3i for the Bigfoot, other than price?

Hi Steve,

It is mostly due to the fact that I found a real nice DFX for $425.

Then I had to buy another Bigfoot coil at $375. But thats the same price I sold my last coil for so I can't really complain can I?

I'll pick up another V3i later.

Good luck with your jewelry hunting!

Hi Mike,

I have a DFX myself right now and will be using it for the time being. I still think about the V3i though. Did you think that the 22.5 kHz mode was that much hotter on small items like chains or earrings then the 15 kHz mode when running the Bigfoot?

Good luck back at you!
