This Years Fresh Water Beach Hunts

Recommended Posts

I've hunted this fresh water beach the last 3 days with some decent luck. The first 2 days I hunted it with an Explorer 2 with an 8" coil, and did ok. I went back today with the Nox and did even better 🙂 My settings were:

Park 2
2-tones
0-ground balance
Disc -9 to 0
recovery speed 4
F2 0
sens 20

The gold ring hit a solid 12
the 2 little pendents rang at 1...found within 6" of each other.
silver ring 5    open ring, not connected at the top
silver beads 12, I've found 8 so far
The little junk beads hit at 1

all the cleaned up silver was found with the Explorer 2

Lol...I'm going to go back to the same spot and come at it from a different direction. I'm also going to drop my disc down to -3 and see what else is hiding in there.

Nice little hunt Dan!

I guess you really have to dig a lot of trash to get to the good stuff!

I plan to hit up my yard again on Sunday, as I know that there is a lot of trash in it. It used to be a church for about 100 years.

So I am really interested in finding more items from the 1800's. Should I find a ring or 2 so be it, but the trash is going else where.

By what I see it is quite obvious you were after GOLD.......

Hey, I do the same thing.

Very nice digs Dan and well earned consider the amount of trash you removed from the lake shore.  Yes, be sure to dig those clean hit #1's as I have found some nice little goodies with the #1.

On a side note, why do you still have an Explorer boat anchor?  Yes I still have an E-Trac (sold my CTX 3030), but I exclusively use it with a 15" WOT and X1 probe.  It is my DEEP Silver machine.  Yes it too is heavy, but the ergonomics is better than the Explorer.

Again, nice digs.

Thanks Gerry,

I have an Explorer only because it's been chopped and looks a little different now 🙂 It actually swings better than my Nox does. It just needed a little help.

      Since this is an Equinox forum, people may assume it is supposed to be all sunshine and roses. The truth is I love well written critical commentary. The problem with most negative posts about detectors is they come down to "I saw a video somebody posted and that machine sucks". Personally, I see minimal value in that sort of thing.
      What I want to see here is posts and reviews from people who A. have actually run the detector and B. can offer straight up critique without the extraneous "boy, how dumb can they be" commentary. What do you like, what did you not like. What worked well, what does not work well, and why. Things to do, things to avoid. Whatever. It's not that you have to heap praise - if you don't like something for some reason then simply explain why.
      Here is the first review I did on a Nokta product. Notice I mentioned several things about the machine I was not wild about. I did not beat the company up for it - just stated the facts as seen from my perspective. Notice I went back later and also commended the company for later addressing those very issues.
      Where is my similar review as regards Equinox? Can't do it until I have an actual production unit in my hands or assurance that what I have would match a production unit in every way. When the time comes I will do my thing, though it will not need quite the detail of the Nokta review just because so much of that stuff has been covered already here on the forum.
      Just wanted to get that out there. It is probably premature so I will bump this up again when units start shipping. All we want to know, all of us, is what people around the world think about various aspects. Some things will be great, some ok, and a few not ok. That's real, and real is all I ask for. Thanks!

      I have a eqinox 600,where i live is a 1700s site.been detecting it for 20 years with a number of high end machines,also buddies of mine detecting it,year before last pulled out 13 large cents with my atpro.just a little side note atpro not used in pro mode is useless,in pro mode its awesome totally different machine. but back to why im posting,everything im detecting is mostly in the teens,strong signal ,rotate around the target, still a strong signal,dig rusty nail.everytime.i have iron bias at 3. most targets are going to be below 13 inches that is where my atpro massed out.so my question is why the teen vdi numbers for iron and is there a way to get past the 13 inch mark. sidenote, the house I live was George washingtons surgeon during the revolutionary war. any help is greatly appreciated.

      I am buying another NOX,should have bought 2 when i was in the Victorian goldfields  will have save a few pence but i had a CTX at the time,as i am always between the Capital(Mudlarking) and the coast (Beachcombing),can't be bother putting it in the car all and i will have spare(can believe i am trying to convince you😆).
       
      I can feel this machine as something special for the beach and after seeing Goldrats(from he forum) picking tiny gold in OZ i was sold.
       
      The plan is to tested in on the Thames with the 6"coil, fast recovery and .....settings well i need to work on them .
      Got all the coils now and we are in Lockdown.....
      The AQ Impulse will be here soon but thats another story

      Purchase a new equinox for my elderly Dad to use. Was testing it in my side yard and it start to act like this. Can anybody explain to me what is going on? Is it malfunctioning? It worked earlier in the day at another location.
