Gold Stinger X5
Gold Stinger X5 by Stinger Detectors is a new reliable metal detector designed with the latest technologies in the field of metal detection to provide the best performance in detecting underground targets and at relatively greater depths compared to competing devices.
Stinger Detectors offers the Gold Stinger X5 device for all novice prospectors with great features for professional prospectors also, and all prospectors can use the device for multiple purposes including coin shooting, relic hunting, natural gold prospecting and manufactured gold detection such as gold jewelry like bracelets, rings and any metal targets small or large in size.
Gold Stinger X5 developed based on practical experiments in the fields within various terrains and different types of soils; the device performance tested in detecting various types of metal targets of different sizes, which manufactured from various metals, to test a set of useful features that meet the aspirations and needs of prospectors around the world.
Gold Stinger X5 Applications & Uses
- Metal detection of minerals of all metal types including ferrous (like iron) and non-ferrous such as Silver, Copper, Platinum and others.
- Coin shooting of ancient or new minted coins made of gold, silver or copper
- Relic hunting of ancient artifacts such as statues, swords, daggers, weapons, drinking goblets and so on.
- Natural gold prospecting of gold nuggets , gold veins and
- Uncover deep buried treasures such as golden chests, valuable antiquities and archaeological treasures of historical value.
- Underground cavity detection including for example: tunnels, chambers, tombs, catacombs and caves.
Gold Stinger X5 Features List
Gold Stinger X5 metal detector has two different search modes or Detection Modes that the user can use for different detection purposes:
- – All Metals Mode : The general metal detection mode that can be used to detect all kinds of metal , used best for coin shooting or small relic hunting
- – Discrimination Mode: The detection mode best used for gold prospecting and treasure detection
This detection mode is a powerful mode for detection of different targets including buried objects made of gold such as golden coins, jewelry and natural gold or deep treasures to an extreme depth up to 3-4 meters.
This detection mode offer great metal discrimination feature for four categories including:
Gold – Precious Metal (non-Ferrous) – Non Precious Metal (Ferrous) – Voids
In this detection mode the device screen, display a 2D graphical visualization of detected targets signals as variable 2D graph with different color that match specific target type.
In the following table, we show the colors of the 2D graph and the type of targets they correspond to it:
Graph Color Yellow Green Red Blue Target Type Gold Precious Metal Non-Precious Metal Voids (Space)
In deep detection mode, the prospector can adjust some settings such as Sensitivity and Gain to find large-mass buried targets at extra depths more easily.
Gold Stinger X5 in this mode had an extra separation section that shows the mineral rocks, which is the biggest problem in cavities, as a mineral instead of seeing them as cavities like in other metal detectors devices.
All Metal Mode
All Metal detection mode is the preferred mode for detection of small size targets located at the surface at small depths, example includes such as coins and tiny gold nuggets and small relics or jewelry.
In this mode, also Gold Stinger X5 offer a powerful metal discrimination feature that let the prospector know the detected target precisely based on numerical value displayed on its screen called Numerical Target Identity or for short Target ID.
The numerical Target ID is displayed on the screen, accompanied by the Target ID Scale, which is a graduated curve with values ranging from 0 to 90 and divided into three sections of different colors (yellow – red – green).
These three colors corresponding to a specific type of targets, the digital value of the Target ID with color indication gives the prospector a clear idea on the nature of the detected target.
This mode enable user to adjust many variables and settings such as ZB Filter , Hot rocks feature, Turbo Mode and Sensitivity to get best performance for detecting of different targets in various ground conditions and terrain.
ZB filter provides a healthy search by filtering interference and sounds in mineral soils and wet ground soils
This option is useful to focus the search on precious metals and gold only and ignore the signals of targets made from non-precious metals.
This option can be set within a specific value within a range so that the higher the value, the lower the probability of discovering worthless targets.
Therefore, it is possible for the user to set it to filter received signals and increase the probability of detecting valuable targets.
HOT ROCK Option
Hot rocks are any rock or piece of stone that does not contain precious metal mineral (gold, silver, or copper for example), but when passing over it by a metal detector, it gives sound signals similar to the signals of these metals.
This feature of the Stinger X5 metal detector is useful in filtering and reducing these signals in order to obtain more accurate and reliable results and to avoid the detection of valueless metal targets.
Turbo Mode Option
When using the All Metal detection mode, this option, when activated by user increasing its value, provides the possibility of detecting targets at depths greater by 30%, which increases the possibility of discovering valuable treasures.
The sensitivity setting can be lowered or increased depending on the soil structure.
As you increase the numbers, it provides extra depth to the device, allowing you to detect gold, coins, objects and jewelry 10% deeper. As you decrease the numbers, it will not affected by the mineral structures in the soil
Pinpoint Targets Locations
The device integrate Pinpointer functionality to pinpoint and find the exact location of potential buried targets during excavation without need for separate Pinpointer device, user will definitely not lost or miss the location of the targets by using Pinpoint function via Pinpoint button to find the exact point of the target location.
Automatic Ground Balance
Gold Stinger X5 automatic ground balance feature is designed in automatic and easy-to-understand English so that a person who has never used a detector can use his professional detector in seconds to find buried targets.
The device includes a very useful feature for prospectors, which is the possibility of estimating the depth of the detected targets (available in All Metal operation mode) through a simple mechanism that displays the approximate depth of the detected target – for example a golden coin – on screen in centimeters.
Gold Stinger X5 package is small, lightweight and compact for comfortable carrying during treasure hunting trips, and telescopic 3-parts shafts installation mechanism and lightweight shafts made of Aluminum make holding and using the device in detection comfortable and without any pain in arms even if used for a long period.
Long Operation Time
Gold Stinger X5 detector offers 12 hours of operation time with its lithium polymer (Li-Po) battery and can be charged fully in as little as 4 hours with its fast charging feature, while allowing long hours of actual detection time .
Simple Graphical User Interface
Gold Stinger X5 metal detector provides easy operation through a large-sized, 4.6-inch, high-definition color liquid crystal display (LCD) , as well as via multilingual easy-to-understand graphical user interface for beginners and professionals, with a simplified menu system and graphic indicators that help provide the best experience when searching for targets by providing information visually with audio feedback as well.
The menu system in the user interface provides an easy way to set various settings related to the search, such as sensitivity, ground balance, iron filter, threshold adjustment and other settings.
It also provides the ability to set other options such as sound, screen brightness and backlight options.
Multi Languages User Interface
The graphical user interface of the Gold Stinger X5 device is available in multiple languages, including the most important spoken languages around the world, to provide the prospector with a metal detector in his own language, which provides a better understanding on how the device works and its options, especially for users who do not master another language.
