    I was watching an episode of Expedition Unknown Butch Cassidys lost loot, Josh Gates was in Browns Park with two brothers they floated down the Green River with the one brother. When they left the boat they meet with the other brother he was using the machine you are asking about i am sure they showed a photo of it.

    Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than the one with all the money.

    I haven't used that one but many others. The whole idea of a hand-held is not the way it works. The signal line to the target takes a while to develop. What i say is put the rod on the ground (pointing up) and wait five minutes then circle it with an L-rod (or bent welding rod) to find the line.

    I realize many people do not understand. I know a guy who knows somebody who bought one. Never heard another word about it. If i was going to buy a hand-held, I would look at the X-Finder Gold. Or the Gold Line costs more has a "fixed" handle (does not need to swivel). I haven't used either one.

    If your heart is in it you will find a thousand ways to achieve your goal.
    If your heart is not in it you will find a thousand excuses.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    My new motto: L-rods are obsolete.

    Like Cappy sings with his harmonica, "We're all gonna die, but not tonight."

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    I've been messing with a locator that does not use L-rods. I call it the Contraption. Yeah, I am the impatient type. Don't like to wait five minutes (or more, sometimes less) for the signal line to develop. So when I don't wait, most times the signal line is not going to my practice target. Longer distance, the longer it takes to develop.

    I don't like to discuss this, but the idea of holding a device that emits energy right near your face or belly is just unnerving to me. Konstantin Meyl talks about it, wrote some books on DNA. basically he says don't get near it and don't use very much power--like lighting an LED brightly is too much.
