  1. Regarding The 6" Coil

    Minelab, how about a 6" elliptical coil like everyone else has? C'mon, it would be a huge success!
  2. Detecting In The Surf Question

    Steven, I hunt in the surf on a regular basis... I don't use a harness. Typically, my Minelab Excal is strapped to my right arm and my Stavr scoop, with a carbon fiber handle, is in my left hand. If your scoop is not too wide and heavy, but has large drainage holes, you will have no problem working it with one hand. When I'm out in the surf I allow the retreating wave to clear the sand from the scoop basket, leaving only the target behind. If I'm working the surfline, I'll dump the sand from the scoop just above water level, rescan, and retrieve the target. This technique is very efficient but requires the right scoop. My large holed Stavr scoop, including carbon fiber handle, is only 3 lbs 4 oz.
  3. Armrest, Power Bank And Carbon Tube

    Looks great Nakky! What's the correct OD and ID of the carbon shaft? Also, where did you get the Cam Locks?
  4. New - 6" Concentric For MX7 And MX Sport

    Tom, is there currently a coil cover that fits or does it come with one?
  5. Eq800 Modification

    Which carbon shaft did you order from Anderson?
  6. Cabelas Has Equinox In Stock Sold Out

    It's almost like finding a lump of coal in one's stocking on Christmas morning!
  7. Cabelas Has Equinox In Stock Sold Out

    I hope we all didn't just unwittingly place an open-ended preorder with Cabela's.
  8. Cabelas Has Equinox In Stock Sold Out

    When is the next shipment due from Malaysia?
  9. Cabelas Has Equinox In Stock Sold Out

    Assuming they are all going by UPS, anyone who has signed-up for an online account with UPS can view all inbound packages, even without a Tracking#. My order is also showing as "Shipped", by Cabelas but as of now I have nothing inbound from UPS... I will keep any eye out today and tomorrow.
  10. Cabelas Has Equinox In Stock Sold Out

    Does anyone know what carrier Cabelas is using to ship the Equinox?

    JP, how did Minelab ship yours? USPS, UPS or FedEx? I agree, I'll never pre-order a detector either... Every time I did that in the past it seemed like everyone else received their equipment well before me.
  12. I like the oval shape of the F-Pulse... I wasn't sure about this when I initially looked at the F-Pulse photos, as my other pinpointers have a more rounded body. However, for me, the oval shape offers a much more ergonomic grip.
  13. I've owned both the TDI SL and Pro... As I mentioned above, in my area, I couldn't see any measurable difference in depth when my SL was equipped with the 14.8v battery (you may have different results in your ground). I can run the gain at full on my SL with a smooth threshold. The threshold would wobble on the Pro when I approached 3/4 gain. Unfortunately, Dan Geyer, White's PI engineer and "Father" of the TDI project passed away unexpectedly... With Dan's passing TDI development went on hold. The Pro model was retired and most of the accessory coils went out of production. There was even development work on a waterproof version of the SL but there has been no update on that in years. I have said it before several times on this forum... IMHO White's is missing a big market opportunity by not waterproofing the TDI SL and V3i. They did something similar with the MX Sport by re-engineering the MXT platform. It would provide a real option for water hunters and put White's right back in the simultaneous multi-frequency battle.
  14. Here's a very informative thread if anyone is interested in more details on the differences between the TDI, TDI Pro and TDI SL... https://www.findmall.com/read.php?73,2411420,2417974#msg-2417974
