  1. Hello All, Well I was able to get out for a few hours with my Daughter. We dug a bunch of rubbish with the Minelab Gold Monster and GPZ 7000. Towards the end of the day, I finally scored a very nice 1/3 ounce gold nugget. It weighed in at 7.8 Dwt's. I was pretty excited since it's been months since I have really been out metal detecting. Wishing you all a success hunt. Rob
  2. Hello Hijab, I would say the Steel Phase is the best out there, but others like Doc's Goldscreamer Signal Enhancer for SD/GP or GPX series is great, along with the B&Z Booster. We carry all of them and have in stock.
  3. Hey GPX Power, Reese sent over a draft of chapters 1-4. The book looks good with color pictures and illustrations. I haven't had time to go through it well, as I have been working around the clock.
  4. Hey Chris, Thanks for the heads-up on the Nugget Finder coils. Much appreciated!
  5. Hey Guys, Great to hear it's back online. Bill runs a great forum and has some great Youtube videos online. Between Bill, Chris, Myself an many others, we have some great online stores, great Youtube Channels and Gold Prospecting Forums.
  6. Hey Guys, That is common, as the gold types (solid, flat, crystalline, porous and such) can cause the detector to react differently from a good signal, broken signal or no signal at all. I have seen nuggets in the 4-5 gram range that will not respond on the Minelab PI's, even with a small gold. I was mind boggled at first, but seen it first hand many times. For the most part, the Minelab PI's, especially the GPX series will scream on small gold nuggets even with the stock 11" Commander Mono. If you're chasing small gold nuggets, my favorite timing is/was Special/Sensitive-Extra. You need to be in Special on the front panel and then Sensitive Extra on the menu screen. Keep your audio in Normal if possible and run your Gain at 10 or higher. You should be able to find 95% of all the small gold out there under a few grains in size near the surface or on bedrock with a GPX 5000 and stock 11" Mono or smaller Mono. The best searchcoils for small gold chasing are the Nugget Finder 8x6 Sadie Mono or Coiltek 6" Round. We carry both of these coils and they are very popular for small gold and working in tight spots and better pinpointing. Hope this helps a bit, Rob
  7. Hey Way2cool, That is correct, customer could make their own. Over the years I have carried a lot of picks and brands. Some very popular picks I carried in the last year or two that were reasonably priced were Bunk's Hermit and Burro. They are now out of stock and not sure they will be sold again from us. Apex makes a great pick in a ton of sizes and head configurations. They have gotten pretty pricey, but that also has to do with a high quality pick and increased prices on metal and wood. I was selling a ton of the 18" Gold Buddy picks, which were the same as the Garrett Retriever II's, but now they are out of stock and I'm not sure if they are going to make another batch or not. Doc's new pick looks great and feels good. I think it will be a great seller, as there are only a few good pick manufactures that are building prospecting picks today. Hope this helps, Rob
  8. Hey GPX Power, Ya, all picks have become pricey due to good wood and metal. That being said, the APEX picks I sell, some are well over $100 now. I actually took this pick out and gave it a whirl. It works really well and is strong. I think if anyone is looking for a good prospecting pick that will last many years, they will have to invest in a higher price pick. Just my thoughts, ROb
  9. Hey Bill and others, Good question, I'm not sure what exactly it means, but it does mean it has Litz wire. I think it's just a model number, like XL, XLT or whatever when it comes to vehicles. The Advantage NF coils have Litz wire and are stardard Mono's. The new EVO's also have Litz wire, but have the new Flat Wind coil technology. The EVO's are more sensitive and will get a bit more depth over the Advantage version, especially on GPX series. Hope this helps a bit, Rob
