Was very lucky to acquire this pristine Anchor Electronics Barracuda from a buddy who “knew I would take good care of it” just as he’s done.   The super rare large coil is mint and has had preventive mods done to the hardware.  This 9V detector is very deep, has superb gold optimization and the best audio of any pulse I’ve seen–letting you hear the caps, pins–even steel-clad coins with ease.  It’s also good in black sand–down in the bottom of the trenches were the “lunkers” hide.  Biloxi’s Jimmy Pugh made these six at a time and did a really great job on them right down to the silver solder.   A lot of the information in “Pulsepower” on running and maintaining P.I. machines I learned from Jimmy–a highly knowledgeable guy and a great water hunter.
