Garret edge digger
« on: August 17, 2014, 12:41 »
Hi hi all I was wondering if anyone has one of these and can let me know if its worth the cash. Have also seen in a few posts the Lesche how do they compare? I like the fact the Garret has the double edge and looks pretty sturdy. Any other recommendations?

A Lesche will take the punishment of the goldfields. I have seen kens Garrett and was unimpressed. It seemed to be made of tin.

I started out with the Garrett but acting on in the field advice from Dutchy, I bought a Lesche. Much sharper and miles ahead of the Garrett in my opinion.

Yeah $65 seems to be the target number in OZ for one of them 
The parent company also makes a strong super light weight pick that I'm also interested in importing but only if the price is rite

Sounds great Marty I certainly think you have a market ... I for one always try Aus first which is why I considered the Garret. But if the states is where the good stuff is ... Then so be it. If your going to get this off the ground in the next week or so let me know and I would be happy to go through you.

Must admit I have never used a Lesche tool, however I will try one next time. As for the Garrett I have used the same one now for approx. 12 months and it has done a power of work. I have no idea as to why others have failed. Ultimately mate buy whatever you want as the price differential is very small. I detect nearly every day and have no cause for complaint other than the pouch wearing out.
