There are few things a water hunter needs to be happy when doing his work...
A good bottom condition and a well prepared machine to do the job.
Many times I found good stuff but really struggling with a coil larger than 10".
Vlf or pulse, will depend for the most by the environment type, but talking about coils, there's no comparison for a diver with an 8".Not only saltwater is a reduced problem with it, but between rocks, between waves,between any other thing, I still prefer to use a smaller coil.
I'm in love with the AQ performance, for what I can see in multiple videos Joe OBN is publishing, but I only think about a smaller coil to be released soon.
I hope Alexandre+FT are already working on this thing, cause otherwise I'll be forced to wait until that moment will be reality.
8" coil is a rule for me.
Wow! Look at what just came out of my aunts backyard! It looks like a 1976/bicentennial coin collection. It clean up really nice after a lot of work. It was not very deep. I am really glad I didn’t damage the acrylic(I think it is acrylic). I wonder how it got into the ground. Did someone bury it on purpose? Who knows. It is a great display. I can’t believe how nice it is. What do you think?
So I've been getting a lot of clad coins with both the Equinox and the Vanquish 440 in the local parks, but even in the older ones, silver coins have escaped me for a couple of months now. In between thunderstorms this afternoon, I hit the neighbor's parking strip, and in less than ten minutes, I pulled two silvers and a wheatie! My first silver quarter, AND my first Canadian silver. The quarter is pretty trashed, but I'm glad just the same!
Felt good to break the slump!
This video also demonstrates that both low conductors are in the same exact VDI range.
I asked Joe how many gold rings he has found and he told me near 800! That is an incredible number in my book. It gave me pause to think about some of my local 'legendary' local beach detectorists. I have not met one. His name is Walker. I have met another one Tim Tidd and he told me about other local legends.
Over on the nugget forum we have several 'legends' contribute to the discussions there. One is Reg Wilson among several others. Here is a link to a project Reg is working on to preserve the memories.
So, who are the LEGENDS of the Beach? What are some stories you can share about them? I know some are still hard at work at enhancing their legends but I don't go to other forums. Are you a LEGEND and want to share a bit of your lifetime successes with us? There are legends that hide and many who would never visit a website I would imagine but let's try to change that.

I got out once again today to try and build up my pain tolerance so when I get a deep machine. I hunted a few hours and managed about a dollar in clad plus two wheats and buffalo. I also found a silver ring and this moon brooch/earring. I don’t know if it’s plated or what since I have never seen these markings. Thanks for looking and happy hunting.
