Well I have always been curious about them. Have watched several videos but never held one.
So are there any safari users here or has everyone jumped on the equinox wagon?
All input from previous users are welcome as well
Or please state the reason why you moved from the safari.
I have just joined your site and it's excellent. Over the last 3 years I have been Detecting with a V440 then a GM1000 for Gold prospecting in the back blocks of queensland australia. I have in my backyard buried coins and lead sinkers for experience and learning. I recently purchased a go find 66 to play with as I am an old coot thus I would rather walk all day and only dig down to 6in than digging all day deep down for nails. I found with the GF66 in heavy clay that it will pick up 10 and 8mm lead balls at 3in no problem but is marginal on 6mm, very iffy. Now if I use the pinpointer on the GF 66 it finds it no problem loud and clear. I am intrigued as to why. Is it using a higher frequency or a smaller virtual coil. In retrospect I feel it could be a change in volume so please ignore.
ON a second observation $1 8in. $1 6in. 5c 2in. 5c 4in lead 10mm 3in. 8mm 2in. 6mm 2in. 4mm 2in
GM1000 NO. NO. YES. YES. YES. YES. YES. YES
GOFIND66. YES. YES. YES. YES. YES. YES. NO. NO
GOFIND22 YES YES. YES. YES YES. YES. YES. 50/50
Tests done in mineralised soil GM 6 all metal. GF22. and GF66 Max. Sensitivity all metal. Interesting result. As I don't dig below 6in and prefer to spend more time covering an area than digging in lesser known locations.
QUESTION. CAN YOU USE THE GF22 8in coil on the GF66 if you made an adapter?
I've been a couple times diving in two different spots the last week and cause of a ton of new sand, working at a deeper area, less pounded by the most of the army.
As usual, my camera was out of service in the moment of glory and there's no footage as I left It once and discharged another time😤...
Aniway, two fishes for the week...Too bad...trust me😑
Both 18k bands
I'm in a bad way.....when I can't detect I look at detectors and when I look at detectors I end up buying detectors.
Now I've got an Xterra 705 on the way. I told my wife I was buying something light weight for her.....we will see if she remembers and gives me the normal big eye roll when it shows up at the door or a chewing out. She does like to detect, so it will be a fresh air outing, even if we don't detect very long or find anything.
Not always been a fan of the Xterra but it will do what I want it to do, which is give me a nice powerful all metal mode with a iron mask option.
