    Sniping for the first time with NeoTokyo's snuffer bottles.

    Well I finally was able to get out and sneak away for a few hours and try some sniping. NeoTokyo was nice enough to send me some of his snuffer bottles that he makes for sniping. Surprisingly I ended up with more gold than I got with my bazooka last time I was at this river I gotta say sniping is a lot harder than it looks on youtube haha but just as fun as it looks too. If I didn't have to pick my son up at daycare I'd probably be shivering down in the river right now still lookin for gold .

    The snuffer bottle that Neo makes is definitely an awesome tool for the job, the curved hard tip is great for getting down in the cracks. I used the larger one he sent me but I'm gonna have to try the smaller one out on Sunday when I get out again. He sells them at Miners Cache in Redding if any of you are in that area are interested in getting one otherwise he's a charter member now so I'm guessing he can sell them on here. Thanks again Neo for the bottles, they helped make for a great day on the river!

    Did the post this is addressing get deleted? Otherwise I don't see what it's addressing in this thread?

    I am in need of a larger snuffer myself, I think this will be one of my next purchases!

    Awesome!
    I am glad that you have been able to get out and use it and found some gold with it.
    I cant wait to see what more you can find with it.


    I didn't get to see the earlier post either, not exactly sure what it was about but I don't have any private messages so I guess it wasn't directed at me.

    Either way, I try to make good on my shipping, I have had a ridiculous month and if I have forgotten an inquiry just message me again.

    Are you still selling them through the Miners Cache? I'll be that way in a couple of weeks and will have to grab a few. I have had snuffer envy since I found your videos last year

    I am, last time I checked he has 1 plastic tube 24oz bottle left and 2 3/8" copper tube 24oz bottles left.
    I need to restock him with a few more of each.

    I am not 100% sure if he rose his prices but they could be $20 and $25 there.

    I am not selling the 12oz bottles right now because of quality concerns for the lid plastic cracking around the tube, so I am looking for other bottles that have a better lid.
    No one has come to me yet with this problem, it is just something that I found while abusing the heck out of my bottles.
    Its too bad because the bottle itself has great springback and lasts a long time.

    I did make a copper tube version of the 12oz bottle but I don't know if people would be too keen on spending $20 bux for that size bottle.
    With copper and fittings my price rose around $7 dollars more a bottle to make, but the quality is reflected in that increase.

    NeoTokyo - there is nothing wrong with making a quality product and charging a fair price for it. Heck, one little picker will pay for the suction bottle anyway.

    It's been workin great! I actually have used the bigger one the most because it has more suction it seems than the smaller one and a bit easier to keep track of under water. I haven't gotten a chance to get out sniping this year yet because it's been so cold but I can't wait to get back in the water. I tried a bit last weekend but the water was so cold my hands would go numb just being in there for a few minutes haha so I had to stick to running the sluice. The smaller one has come in real handy though for gettin all the black sand out of my pans.
