Makro has just introduced a new lineup of metal detectors waterproof to five meters (16.4 feet) that includes a new prospecting model - the Gold Kruzer. The Gold Kruzer is no doubt based on the earlier 56 kHz Makro Gold Racer but at a slightly higher frequency. The Gold Kruzer only weighs 3.0 lbs and runs for up to 19 hours off the built-in rechargeable LiPo battery. The stock coil is a 5.5" x 10" DD coil with optional coils available. The Makro Gold Kruzer comes with 2.4 Ghz wireless headphones and has online firmware update capability. The new Gold Kruzer will sell for $749.00

Thanks everyone for the amazing information and for taking the time to write it all down. Today I went back to the same spot that I had iron falsing and now I know the difference in tones. The main green is littered with iron too but there is a distinct difference in tone that was mentioned in your responses. The tone is higher and more abrupt. I walked into the spot where I found the 44 merc and got a nice tone and 24-26 vdi using park 2 with the minimum sweep and recovery speeds and a sensitivity of 22. Amazingly I got my first seated in many years, an 1872. There are a lot of signals with park 2 so I tried field 2 and it is awesome. There is less lag time with responses and signals are narrowed down more than in park. I hunted with field 2 and then switched to park 2 to see if the signal is still there. They are similar but field 2 is easier on my ears :-) I then found a 1902 barber quarter and later on an 1899 Indian down 9 or 10". The compact or watch or photo frame was from another area and was at a similar depth. I do not find much silver anymore and never found a lot to begin with so finding silver 2 days in a row has made me a believer of all the rave reviews I had read and seen about the Equinoxes :-)
