  1. Thanks everyone for ya comments. And the only one on my sector nugget shooting that i know of. People around have a muilti purpose vlf and use them for treasure hunt. But very little know how to operate these machine since they come in english. Kiwi- i start of on auto sen+ with discrimination and as it gets quite i meaning no ground noise or metal objects i try to back it down to deep all metal and sensitivity to 10 and it just might work well for a minute to i get very soon to a hotter piece of ground . So i just stay mostly in autosen+ and in discrimination mode . GoldRat- GoodLuck!! Hopefully you find a muilti Gram nugget =] I love the discrimination on the machine i just couldnt figure how i would have ignore all these iron signals from blasting my earphones and digging it without it. *something i notice is the sound coming off the speaker are kinda low at full volume . I dont think i could even hunt just using the internal speaker it makes me struggle with my hearing to pick up these signals .*
  2. Yeah steve .. i was even getting some ground noise sometimes but i would just past the coil again if i didnt get a double signal i would just ignore it and move on. And Thanks IdahoPeg!
  3. Hello everyone.. Im rookie starting out gold prospecting with a metal detector. I have always dredged for my gold and wanted to give metal detecting a go. So i have gotten the GM as my first gold prospecting detector and i would have to say im very impressed. Im happy with how simple it is even in our hot soil here the Dominican Republic. I had to switch from deep all metal to "Gold Mode" most of the time because of the ground noise. But it was manageable for a rookie like me just walk everywhere and just detect. Found a couple false signals but they was like pockets of black sand they appear while scraping off the overburden to reveal more the signal. So i have went to a place where some lady just walking by found a piece of gold since i dont know of no place here where people would metal detect since no one do nugget shooting with a prospecting machine. After about like 10 minutes i got a good signal and i dug my first gold nugget about 4" down. It weighted in at 1.4 Grams. After trying to search the are for 10 more minutes and not founding nothing more i left since it looked like it wanted to rain. So i have found my first place where i know i have found shallow gold. Hope i could start now a list of these deposit to revisit when i have a PI machine .
  4. I need to do a lot of scouting around and for being light weight, sensitive and with a long battery life it makes it perfect for walking around up and down hills finding new ground. .
  5. Steve ..i have seen so many people test this machine all over the world and i havent heard of them being in that ground where a typical vlf wouldnt just work. Is there is something special about GM that no other detector GB2 or GMT or any other vlf has in abilty to work in hot ground and dealing with hot rock. Just curious. . I would be recieving mines next weekend. ! Im excited already by all the great reviews. Thanks Steve and everyone else ..
  6. Okay. . So i have been able to read a review where the GM1000 have gotten a good signal on a 11grain nugget a 6" in hot dirt and a 5 G nugget at around 10 inches screaming. . This test was done in a hot pi test bed and the 11 grain nugget was pulled out in the field on wet soil. Heres the review.
  7. Hi Rob, im living in the Dominican Republic .. So i guess this is why he said it was Okay ..
  8. Thats in mexican pesos. If you change it in currency its about 800 dollars . i have gotten a reply with one of the them and i was told they are willing to ship anywhere. . Now i just hope they are in stock if soo ima go ahead and order mines. .
  9. This company seems to have the Monster; But is located in Mexico. I been trying to contact them to see if they would ship internationally. Hope is okay steve to posting this website up.
  10. I believe manufactures could just have a one vlf machine that does it all but they wouldnt release what they believe to be the latest in technology; Just like all electronics. It been already how long since the gpz came out and all these metal detectors coming out that tries to add another into the closet instead of replacing one or two.
  11. He received his detector from a company to test it. But something i noticed is the box in which he received wasnt other people recieving a Sdc2300 box. The company he received it from seems to sell them . Is in the description box.
  12. Could a deus xp serve both purpose of a vlf machine while having a very good discrimination ? Or gmt or gb2 and gbp be a better choice ?
  13. Hey.. i want to clear somethings that is not mentioned here. When dealing with suction is not all JUST engine HP is more about the GPM. Meaning two 6hp pumps will produce 700 and something GMP with a higher PSI. While a 16hp engine will be around the 500 gpm with a slightly less psi. One larger engine will produce suction but not as much as a two engine combo using even a regular power jet. And like steve explain is a depth thing as soon need to lift 5" rocks 8-10 feet out of the water it takes away a whole lot of the suction to justify.
  14. Thanks for explaining things Steve.
