Why would one  metal be better than another (other than the user believing it to be and therefore being more apt to believe in his/her ability to use the rod)?   Not trying to start any arguments and not a "gotcha" question, though I must admit that while I'm willing to concede the possibility of dowsing, I really don't see how the instrument can make a demonstrable and reproducible difference in the results.

I like copper. I've used many different materials, the carbon steel works, too. Don't know what alloy it is. I guess you just have to try differnet ones and see what you are comfortable with.

What is the best type of metal to use for making dowsing rods? I made some out of an old coat hanger and made some out of brass rods that i got at the local hardware store. Both sets work,but if i can do better i sure want to try! 

That's good both sets work. What kind of reaction did you receive from them?
I prefer the brass. Some ideas on how you can do better would be to bait the rod with a silver coin if you are looking for silver. Mentally concentrating on what you are wanting to locate is another way to improve your sensitivity and accuracy.

Hi Ram
In my opinion the pest metal for Dowsing is the copper one ,But the must important is what metal your are going to bait with.

I still like a brand new hanger from the dry cleaners.  If I'm looking for silver, I'll hold a silver coin, or ring against the L rod.  Gold: a gold coin or ring against the rod.  Just seems to work a little better because its a witness of what I'm looking for.   Its your intent thats important.

My thoughts would be, that if your dowsing for water? you would use a branch from an apple tree because the tree always heads for water, especially a fruit tree.  If your looking for a buried object like a septic tank and old foundations,? then you could use any type of rods.  If your looking for a mineralised vein, such as gold,silver,copper,lead or zinc (where you find one, the others will be there too.) any rod would do it's true.  but to make it work more towards a gold deposit. I would suggest that you dip the tips of the rods in 14k gold plating like they used for cheap jewelry. or is it 10k? i forget.   
 I have seen people that used a bead of brass weld at the tips of the rods they had.
