  1. Pin Pointers Which One???

    For nugget shooting? Your detector and a scoop.
  2. Gold Monster Headphone Issues

    I haven't but the ones that came with it seemed like junk and are still sitting in the box - I'm finding I rarely use headphones when running the monster, I use an adapter and detector-pro's when I do though. Rather than have them replaced with another set that is likely to fail, I'd spend my money on a good set of high impedance headphones that you can use for years to come.
  3. With an average of (1) gram a day for your last trip, I would say you are doing better than many folks. Not knowing the recovery rates in the Sudan this seems fairly good. Too many people expect to get rich detecting for gold, I'd try and switch your priorities around and make adventure the first priority with finding a decent amount of gold the second. You may stumble across a few retirement nuggets along the way, however, you can't expect to! Best of luck and safe journeys!
  4. New 61 Khz Makro Gold Kruzer

    Exactly my thought. My monster may hit the flea-bay.
  5. New 61 Khz Makro Gold Kruzer

    The headphones don't appear waterproof - any thoughts on using it underwater? I'm guessing the factory speaker is your only option?
  6. I was unsure as to which forum this would be appropriate to post under? Regardless, it's a good read if you have five minutes or so. http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/bay-area-settler-forgot-where-he-buried-gold-1850s-12488116.php#item-85307-tbla-20
  7. New Year Claims Numbers

    Is there anyway to access historic mining claims info that used to be provided by the USGS? I always found this incredibly useful and am disheartened to see it disappear.
  8. Finds From Recent Weeks

    Incredible! That's the dream right there!
  9. Minelab Fix For The GM 1000

    Hoping mine doesn't develop these issues...~30 hours on it, so essentially new and no issues yet. Fingers crossed.
  10. I Want It Now Minelab

    For those eager for the equinox, you think they'll release it March 20th? It certainly won't be the fall equinox...😂
  11. Minelab Equinox Unveiled!

    That's true - the reality is, even if it was rated at the 10 meters I'd like, it would probably need to be heavier to be neutrally buoyant, and then I wouldn't like using it on land. I have wanted a truly dive capable gold machine for a few "secret" sweet spots, current water machines can pick up the larger multi-gram pieces. I.e., Excalibur, but there is a great deal of smaller gold. Getting dive gear in these spots is a chore of its own though and this is a small niche that I can live without. Minelab really has something here as it seems like it will cover a broad swathe of most individuals detecting needs.
  12. Minelab Equinox Unveiled!

    Oh bummer. Well it still looks like a great machine - I may not be as quick to run and get one though.
  13. Minelab Equinox Unveiled!

    Just read waterproof to 10 meters - looks like I'll be getting another detector soon!
  14. Minelab Equinox Unveiled!

    Darn, that 40kHz is not far off from the monsters 45 - this could be a do it all unit for me if the waterproof rating isn't another measly 10 feet issue. I'd like a unit to take to 20-30 ft mark in freshwater with the 40khz.
