Are all minelab BBS FBS OR VLF?

Post by Devon steve » Thu Jun 28, 2018 12:01 am

Hi all. Toying with the idea of getting a sovereign GT or xr series because of the stuff I've read on the net. My question is- do the later minelab machines use this same technology now albeit calling it FBS? If the newer machines have the same tech but better functions build etc. Is it really worth going for a sovereign at all? Second hand sovereigns seem to go for the same money as later minelabs ? What's the best to try with a £350 budget? 👍

hello, i had an early Elite, once you master the sounds and controls it finds very deep and good on beach, the Kilohertz banding i think is a mine lab patent, not one to swing fast, or your loose very tiny silver, traded for a safari,
