New Metal Detector.....................

Recommended Posts

I got several major laughs looking at a "New" metal detector listing on Ebay. The listing is at MD-88 Deep Ground Metal Detector Gold Detector Pressure Stone Diamond Detector. It was incredible. I love the Minelab knock-off manual and coils.

It uses 8 AAs and weighs 3.5 kg ?????? over 7 lbs. Must be really confusing to assemble. Is that coil on backwards........🤔

I love the air test items - a wrench, an iPhone, a small shovel, and the lid off a large pot! The color and look reminds me of a 1980's Garrett detector. :smile: The armrest is similar to that on the GTI 2500.

I still have no idea how to hold it or lift it either. I hope the female model for the Ebay listing was paid really well!!!! 

Definitely keep watching for the air testing near the end of the video. It is hilarious.  

That detector has something from every major brand.....

Love the background noise and cinematography! Looks like a weiner!! 🤯

I think Simon needs one of these to add to his arsenal of detectors! 🤣

All right you two, don't bash the new comer to the market. All detectors have growing pains 🤣🤣🤣.

You notice how close the aluminum shaft is to the coil? Luckily that machine only has a 4" depth max or it would sound off on the pole! I might consider one if it came with dolly wheels to push around rather than try to swing it.

Are you kidding? That is not growing pains unless you are wanting to grow a really big fire to throw something like that onto.

I have an old Bounty Hunter that would out do that any day of the week , They can keep that junk.

You can have them, but I like the ones on my neighbor better.

She is also  better looking than the detector.

      It looks like the F19 - what I evaluate very positively ... Is there any closer information? Link to the leak.

      For the small people in your life!  One of the few detectors I have seen that is designed for kids without being an insult to kids intelligence. And waterproof - amazing!

      I've been out of commission for the last couple of months with a broken ankle. While I was laid up, I did a couple of mods to a couple of Explorer's I bought last month. I stole the idea from Kevin(IDX Monster), thanks again!  I finally healed up enough to hobble down by a lake near my house and do some digging. I ran it with gain set at 7...16 manual sens...variability set at 10...conductive tone...fast recovery....no disc..... manual noise cancel at 1...Minelab 8" coil.
        One thing I did find out real quick was how fast it is to get out of shape. Anyway, set out to dig it all and relearn the Explorer and test out the equipment. I've running the Nox 800 for the last 2 years. The chestmount setup works like a charm with no hiccups to speak of. I'm running wireless earbuds that are APTX LL and the transmitter is also APTX LL, no noticeable lag. The battery is mounted on the back of the housing and is a 12v 3000 mah power bank. I tested it and it ran for about 15 hours with the back light on, full threshold, full sensitivity, in the garage with 11"coil mounted.
      I'm very pleased with how smooth the set-up works and was able to dig a couple of keepers while testing it out. The finds are from 2 outings, I found a silver ring and a silver bead the first time out and 2 more of the silver beads and another silver ring , along with the other items today. I'm thinking the silver beads were part of a bracelet or necklace as they were spread out from where I found the first one. One of them rang at 2/30 the first one 5/28, I was surprised at how hard the Explorer hit such small items. Feels good to be swinging a coil again, gonna take the monster old coin hunting tomorrow.

      I recently ran across one of these fisher gold strike gold detectors not sure of the history of these other than fisher didnt makem for long whatever there reasons were it seems to perform very good depth and sensitivity wise, my buddy and I tested against his gold bug 2 and they seem very similar, it is a pain to adjust but it is what it is I have one and wondering if anyone knew if fisher made a coil other than the little 6" it came with that's avail or if any of the other model coils are compatible I'm trying to find a bigger coil for it. Thanx
