    Thanks for the heads up, seems like based on replies Sigma Pro is the way to go for face to face deals but dealers should not be relying solely on XRF for the larger sized bars.

    All good solidstacks1984... I'm not trying to stir the pot.. but for me, this Sigma unit is my 6th sense when buying gold or silver... just to summ, I would've had many bad deals if I hadn't purchased this unit, which would cost me more than the unit itself

    Maybe we can get this thread pinned in the discussion forum if possible? Happy to start a new buy thread if this is moved. @ozcopper

    You'll need the bullion wand for larger bars.

    The bridge is new. I didn't buy the Pro previously as it can't do thru measurement of the thicker silver bars.

    If checking 1KG silver bars would the large wand suffice or would it be best to get the external bridge?

    The external bridge does test more aspects than the wands i believe

    The large wand is what I use, but I don't have the pro. It would seem that it tests top and bottom at the same time?

    If that's the case the large wand should be fine.

    Then again as you can see here there is a reasonable demand so even if you do get it you can resell down the track

    The "thru" measurement sounds like it can defeat "plated" fakes?

    Measurement mode is good when you have a similar bar to compare with, and I have used this mode to compare for any doubt bars...

    Is that using the large wand or the external bridge?

    neither mate, just use the unit itself... measurement gives density ratio (I think) and, if you can compare with another BU bar, you can be certain both bars in similar density ratio.. note that you need to move both bars around the unit a few times to make sure you're getting the same reading.. if not, then you make your own judgement. Note that the wand is handy when you have non-flat surface of the bar that you're testing.. if bar is easily fit the unit, then why make yourself difficult to use the wand to test these bars

    The external bridge gives you the through measurement too which the wands do not.

    I think external bridge is for larger bars > 50ozs.. i do know KILO bars are easily fit on the main unit
