    Hey Brian:

    Simply because many people are so brand-loyal that they can not imagine that their etrac could be outdone. I wish we here on this side of the pond could buy a Blisstool, but so far I can't find one for sale here. Do you have information otherwise?

    Amazing if that test was accurate.
    I am no fan of freshly buried objects for testing.
    And if this was a Manufacturer, or dealer test my confidence also drops.

    If you search Blisstool usa you'll find info online

    they'll run you anywhere from $1100 up to $1500 which isn't outrageous.

    I won't list the seller here, because they are not a Trusted supporter of TreasureNet ,
    and would delete anyone else's post advertising non supporting dealers.

    also if you get ripped off by a non supporting dealer, we can

    That video is totally true and accurate - I was there!

    Hello Jeff.
    i was there for that video.
    You don't know me but that is a 1,000% true and accurate video.
    I can arrange to have the USA distributor meet up with you at one of your spots to see it in action and test it for yourself.

    He will also bring: E-Trac, CTX 3030, Deus, TDI Pro

    although I would like to know how it stands up to the Anthracite coal region & our iron Ore,
    Being from the east Central area of PA,between Wilkes Barre & Harrisburg, I definitely wouldn't want
    to Drag him here. Especially since I wouldn't be buying.

    But thanks for the Info & Offer
    it's always nice to hear about improvements in detectors without adding outrageous pricing

    They need to slow the swing speed down on all of them.

    I noticed that when watching
    almost appeared like he never swung a detector before.

    Wow swing speed way to fast for sure with the ETrac. Also freshly buried is not a good thing at all.

    Hey Jeff,

    I appreciate you being considerate in not wanting the USA Importer to go out of his way - but he is actually just a little over 2 hours from your location He has regularly traveled as much as 7 hours to demo the Blisstool in the red dirt of Culpeper, VA...

    He is NOT looking to sell you a machine.

    But, being that the Blisstool is a new comer to the USA market - he believes that having trusted people like yourself (who moderate excellent forums like Treasurenet) see and experience the Blisstool first hand - will go a long way in dispelling myths and rumors from people who have never seen or touched the machine.

    Feel free to bring along any others who you think would like to see this detector first hand for themselves.

    The risk is ALL on the USA Distributor - If the machine doesn't perform to the claims - you were there to witness it....but he is confident enough in the detector's capabilities that he is willing to take the shot...again - there is NO risk or obligation on your part what so ever...

    Let's do this soon - PM me with contact details.

    Thanks.

    Will see what I can set up for a good site to try it on & get back to you.
    Perhaps in the Triangle right here in my Hometown.

    I took the Etrac, excalibur and my older garrett to my test bed. Coins, rings, screw cap and nails that were buried(a measured 10" but closer to 11.5" with build up over the years) a long time ago. At the swing speed in the video the Etrac and excal would hit the half solid and the quarter enough that I would have stopped. Anything else probably would walk over. Garrett would not even ring up any of them. I slowed the swing down to the 3-4 secs that Minelab recommends from one side to the other and they all would hit solid.
    Maybe that is the Blisstool's advantage - it hits deep fast? Reminds me of the older motion detectors. You had to really swing them to make them work. But as far as that video being a fair comparison of the Deus and Etrac I would question the results.

    Yes I remember seeing the old Bounty hunter Red Barrons being swung like weed wackers,
    & my understanding at the time they were one of the leading detectors being used.

    one thing that concerns me is tones.

    I am a Died in the wool Multi tone person since the Sovereign.

    I will never enjoy a single or even 3 tone machine again.
    from the Vid it sounds like the Blisstool is a single tone ?
    no idea on the deus but I hear the deus is #1 on seperation of targets.

    Talked to my Nephew about getting the Importer here he is up for it also.
    so once the choice of 90's Heat & Humidity or rain backs off & it looks like
    we'll get a few days of comfortable weather, I'll be contacting him for a Test Drive

    If he travels to Virginia, odds are he Passes my place on interstate 81 pretty regularly

    I place no faith in online videos comparing various detectors by manufacturer or dealers including minelab. We all know there is big difference between fresh buried targets and true targets. We also know swing speed is a big factor in performance.
