I haven't read this book as of yet, but I am going to order it. I have tried to find objects, usually made of metal and about the size of pliers with 100% success! I use pure 10 gauge "1/8" wire with a bend that leaves a 90% bend and the rods extend about 2'. I have had many friends tell me that it was a trick until i put a set of pliers under 1 of 10 pieces of newspaper and tell them to use the rods to guess which piece of paper the pliers are under. 8 of 10 found the pliers on the first try and now they are begging me to make them a set as they became believers! For fun I take a 9 volt battery that has lost power and measures 6-7 volts and hold the rods straight out then have someone place both terminals on my tongue. the rods instantly cross completely! I search for buried artifacts using the rods and, so far, I have found horseshoes, old draft horse buckles and one gold ring. I haven't gotten rich doing this but it sure is fun.
I should note that I have found water about 4' and 9' below the surface, twice. I have yet to come up with a dry hole that didn't contain some abnormality like cartridges, a belt buckle, or something man made. After using the sticks for a few weeks I notice that they react to water different than to metal. The difference is subtle but distinct.
Why don't you try. Use 10 gauge or 8 gauge solid bare copper wire. aluminum wire of the same gauge may also work as it is more conductive but I am sticking to copper. You get outdoors and exercise; its just plain fun and healthy!
