If you're going to be hunting in northern nevada and your price range is still 1200 I would still recommend looking for a used gp extreme, or a gp-3000. There are extremes and 3000's around for 1200 if you look around a bit. The wet ground in northern nevada in the winter time will make a vlf machine very noisy. Even the minelabs generate quite a bit of noise in the wet ground there. With the way this winter has started i would bet money the ground will be wet all winter just a few inches below the surface. If you really want one of the gold bugs I would recommend the bug 2. The gold bug pro works well enough but the bug 2 has proven itself many times and found me pounds of gold. If don't run into anything with a minelab and i'm not going to go home from nevada without a piece of gold i'll take the bug 2 out for a few hours just to get a small one to go home with.
