Just an observation I had this week, I been working some tailings with my PI, well as some of you know it can get crazy with iron. My only alternative was to use my Tesoro Umax with stock coil and give it a go. So the next day I went and scanned some small piles and within 15 minutes got a nice signal. The sound came in clear as I scanned left and right. Within seconds I recovered a nice 5.54 gram nugget! So for those coming into nuggethunting...don't despair if you only have a cheap vlf as you can find gold with it. Just get out there and scan those piles and eventually you will find that little fella..

Working on home LCD VDI project with my GSII that I hope to be able to put on the Lobo St. However I can't tell if the Lobo ST has the same chip. I found a schematic for the original Lobo that shows that it does have one but I can't find anything clear on the Lob ST that would show me for sure.
Could someone who owns a Lobo ST, when you have time, look at the board and specifically look for this chip...an LM358. Could also be a LM358N, It would even be helpful if you could take a picture and just reply to the this post.
I found a couple of pictures on the web of the Lobo St circuit board but the resolution isn't good enough to read the labels on all the chips.
This is what it looks like on my GS1I

After reading on the topic of shallow sports field hunting/screwdriver popping , I decided to give it a try. With some practice it is doable, it will open up acres of park area I would have passed on if I would have had to dig a plug. I am a little over a year into detecting and have been using a non manual gb Gold Bug, it serves me very well but after doing this shallow hunting I am thinking about getting a Tesoro. It is not a particular machine I want, it is that Clean Sweep coil. It really looks as though you can cover some ground. I am not looking for depth beyond what my Carrot will signal. I know there is no magic bullet, am I reading too much into this ?
