  1. If anyone has one that they no longer need...please p.m. with details. Thanks
  2. I think its all in good fun....those who prospect or mine for gold know its fake....but dang we can dream!!
  3. . Those knee pads are the best I have ever used..Good choice to carry that brand.
  4. Red....for hot rods yeah,...but detectors...especially when you want to blend in with the enviroment..not so good.
  5. I agree, its good to have options...looking forward to some reviews with this 32."
  6. Great another large coil, for me at least not sure about the rest..but I am done buying the next and up and coming " new " coil without real tests. I don't mind the manufacturer doing them neither, but to see words written on an advertisment means nothing to me. Make a coil, do some extensive depth tests with multi ounce nuggets at depth. Most of us have used many of the coils ou there...smalls and bigs, ..if its new and great, prove it. This coil sounds interesting but will it get the 1- 5 ounce nugget deeper than all the others...? If it does, than it will be a succeful coil for Detech and users in the field. I hope Detech and for that matter Nuggetfinder and Coiltek are listening..For now, I am waiting for reviews on 2 coils before I make a descion to buy, one is the X-Coils form Russia...for the GPX...and the other is the Detech 18" CC coil. Don't mean to rant but dang all the coils these days are comparable to the other...one does not have much over the other brand if going head to head for a particualr size...what we need is a coil that goes deeper than the others for the biggies.
  7. Always nice to rewatch those videos....thanks for posting them Rob....
  8. Lol......yup....they screwed me. Always take extra insurance out on anything valued over 100.00 Bucks. At least it still works...so it could have been worse.
  9. Very nice.....man they just don't come out that size often....Keeper!
  10. Awesome Bouler Dash..your perseverance is inspiring....
  11. Garikfox, I get your concern , but...my experience with a Minelab 4500 in the field on undug targets would make his test irrelevant considering the various size nuggets and shapes I have found. I am sure the ATX is a fine machine...but you are limited on coils you can use...and overall you have more options with a Minelab. The nuggets he tested I can 100% guarantee I could have found them with the 4500 just depends on the coil used and settings....I hunt with Mono coils...and I also cover the same ground multitudes of times with various size coils and I do that many, many times over the same ground. For the money...I think the Minelab 4500...and perhaps 3 coils will do the job for most targets and depth. After that it's just a matter of learning how to use it...in various ground conditions, coil choice for the days hunt, and for me swing control and listening to the sounds of the detector, the ability to tell a target from sudden EMI and ground noise. Sounds complicated, but it's not....the more you hunt the more you will learn the language your detector is speaking. The majority of professional nugget hunters still use the Minelab...there is a reason for that.
  12. There is no perfect coil....you need a small, medium and and large. But most important you need ground with gold in it...go for the 11" Mono Commander. I had the Evo and Elite all good coils, but that 11" mono will serve you well...it gets the tiny small ones and punches deep. And it's affordable.. As far as a medium coil, I would chose the Round 15" Nuggetfinder Evo for the bigger deeper ones and it's also a coil you could swing all day...and sensitive to small little flakes and nuggets. We could talk coils all day, but you also need to concentrate on your swing speed and proper settings for the ground you work.
