Fun day at the lake, no gold this time but found a few old coins and 8.7 gram James Avery silver ring and a thing silver ring w stones. I wasn’t sure on the video the hallmarks were pretty small. Thanks, Aaron
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.

I tested this just smaller then half inch earring that has a post about the size of a staple and a tiny mount for the small stone first with GMX and 6'' coil and it would hit it with a small sound in all angles .The Emi would effect this target at certain times and you would notice it with the broken signals sometime then a much stronger hit after where I could lift the coil and still get it good.Tough targets on the edge of detecting depth are very fragile when it comes to a signal in high EMI areas.
That brings me to another question. If you take the natural response of a single frequency machine, would a gold machine like the Gold Racer be better in high aluminum trash areas for cherry picking out gold? I am sure general coin shooting would be trickier as you start to lose the gamut on the higher conductors. Here is the ID scale on the Makro Gold Racer @ 56khz. I have a stupid thought in my head that I maybe able to use that to cherry pick some parks here that are just blankets of aluminum. I have sniped out the easy copper and silver but the can slaw is brutal.
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.
