  1. New Makro Kruzer, Makro Gold Kruzer, and Makro Multi Kruzer metal detectors!
  2. This information may be helpful for folks when deciding on a detector for their intended application(s). Can be used to compare detector models as well. http://www.dsmt.com/resources/ip-rating-chart/
  3. Scuba Detecting

    So back in January on an ice-fishing adventure I hooked into a whale of a trout, so big that when my wife took her phone out to snap a picture, he shook the ice and down the hole went the new phone. We tried bobbing for it with a strong magnet and more holes, to no avail (although it did ring when I called it one more time before the battery died from the cold). Turns out there we several hundred pictures on the extra SD card that weren't backed up, so I'm going to take the plunge. That part of the lake is only about 12 ft deep (per fish and game's mapping), and we marked an approximate gps location. The water aint getting warmer, and my neighbor had a dry-suit to borrow. ATX is cleared to 10 feet, so with the 4 ft or so of extension i should be able to stay above. Luckily my lovely lady will be waiting above in the kayak, anchored down while I use a tether to slowly spiral outwards. Anybody done this before or got suggestions? (Yes, I've considered that the card might be shot anyways, just holding out for a little hope 😉)
  4. The Minelab Excalibur may be the most popular detector made for underwater detecting. This video has some excellent underwater footage of gold ring recoveries with mask and snorkel to give you a feel for this type of detecting. Right up there with nugget detecting as far as I am concerned - there is nothing like seeing that gleam of gold appear!
  5. Back in January 2015 the Fisher CZ-21 internet price increased from $1160 to $1499, a massive price increase. Now it is being lowered back down to $1299. Some places still have it listed for $1499 so just a heads up. The Fisher CZ-21 is one of the best VLF underwater detectors on the market and can double as a good dry land detector. Waterproof to 250 feet, it is the real deal when it comes to diving and built like a tank. It is the only serious competition to the Minelab Excalibur with the main difference between the two the basic physical design and control layout. Performance is too close to call. I personally prefer the CZ-21 due to the east hip mount capability and more distinct tone scheme and true all metal mode. You can get it in 8" or 10.5" coil sizes but the coil is hardwired so be sure and get what you want. Big coils are better on the beach but if you are also thinking parks and such on dry land the 8" is the better option. The 8" is also better in thick ferrous junk.
  6. this guy Flat Killed It on this Dive! Makes You think? Looks Like Fun! Worth Watching! Cheers from Idaho.Sorry if this was already posted before Dunno
  7. Have a question..... I've taken up scuba diving and plan on doing some diving and detecting in Hawaii. I currently have a Whites Dual Field PI and just acquired a CTX 3030. Understanding that the 3030 is rated to only 10 feet and the DFPI hits on the lava, would an excal II be a wise investment? Can you notch out the lava with it? Any insight or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and happy holidays! Rob Here's two recent beach finds... The ring is platinum (3.9gr) with diamonds and the earring is 22K (5.0gr) with sapphire and moonstone.
  8. Hello Steve and other forum members. My name if Jeff and I am new to this forum. I have been a wet sand beach hunter here in So. Cal. for many years. I even make it out to the desert to do a little nugget shooting once in a while. Now....I know this topic has been rehashed several times, but a new mid range ($1000 -$1200) Water Proof PI is needed. I currently use a Whites Surf PI and Excal for most of my beach hunting, but would love to see a water proof TDI or something waterproof new from Fisher. When is this going to happen???? Great Forum Steve !!!!

Big coils are better on the beach but if you are also thinking parks and such on dry land the 8" is the better option. There is a huge price increase coming that will put what you see it currently for sale at as not too far over the new dealer cost! I literally almost just bought one myself just now but veered away before hitting the buy button because - well, you know it - I have too many detectors already anyway. Still, it is almost an investment at this price as used prices are going to take a big jump also. Anyway, just a head's up for forum members in case anyone was on the fence about the CZ-21.
  10. Hi Steve I posted on findmall this same topic and then i found your site and reviews on nugget machines ....which were very good ...but i was wondering which unit would be the best ...for what i want to do I have land hunted for 40 years and in the ocean with a pi unit aqua pulse 1b ...but i have found some nugget areas here ,,,so ive been told ,,,,here in the DR and would like to try my hand a that ,,since i spend my winters here .....no gold where i live in the states (MO).... I have a explorer se and x-teera 70 ,,,,but would like a water proof unit for nugget hunting in the streams ,,and banks Any ideas ? I had a infium ,but didnt care for the 2 tone thing,,,,and i used an ace 350 but thought the response time from target to tone was slow...are the garrets atx and at gold like this ? Do any of these units you recomend have multi tone and resonalbe response time ? simalar to the SE, which just love that unit .... Thanks don
