What I Like About The Tarsacci Before I Get It


Recommended Posts

The first thing about the Tarsacci I like is any time I want to set it aside for extended period is just pull the battery out.

 I’ve had three detectors that I can’t do that and I’m glad now just to be down to two.

I was looking for a high end machine for a few years.   Had to be waterproof and handle salt water.   Every now and then one would come to my attention. The disappointment would start.   Waterproof but not for saltwater.   A real good one came along, but lost sound when the coil was surmerged.  There's a way around that for this model but didn't turn me on.  A real tried and very popular brand came out and I almost bit.   Showing my age I guess.   What everyone liked about most of these units was the many options, modes available to hunt with.   Plus if that weren't enough, computer updates.  Just might be me but another thing to mess my mind up.     So back in January on another forum the Basstrackerman made mention of the Tarsacci.  Did a lot of research.   Had everything I was looking for.   So pulled the trigger.   Handled wet salt sand /wading quietly.  Got a lot of depth.   Read a couple times mild mud hunting isn't it's best environment.  I'll say this, I alternate it with a very sharp fairly new analog machine. They both are dredging up coins I couldn't pull up in the past.  Both are a lot of fun to use and in the mud their a real nickel killers.    They both also have a good nose for silver items. Tarsacci made in USA and no regrets.

I have to say .... i was floored to see the MDT only required one battery and to replace it only costs $6...... AND you get to as well as the charger which will recharge both at the same time.  You can get them easily anywhere on line.  Why are we paying crazy prices for battery packs???  You just cant beat old fashion KISS.   Ive used mine a lot.... they still charge to 4.1 and ive had mine a couple of years now.   This is one well made tank of a machine.... yet light weight.  Im hoping SteveG comes up with that thinner lower shaft for a little better water movement.   Thou i have to say the 12" coil moves pretty darn well out there.

I'm happy to hear you are getting the Tarsacci. Are you getting both coils with it? I think it would be worth it. That detector has been on my mind for awhile too. I hunt mostly fresh water lakes and the depth will be about the same as Equinox 800 so it's harder to go ahead and get it for me.

No, the depth will not be the same, especially with the 12” BEAST coil.  Even in fresh water & low mineralization dirt.

No Rick I’m not getting the smaller coil because to me it’s a big coil. I’m in hopes they will see the need for a round 6” coil are a 5X10” coil.

 My reasoning going for the Beast coil as it’s being called is the report’s that’s coming back on it.

      I have a Tarsacci on the way, should be here by mid week.  Reading some of the posts 18 KHz hasn’t been as productive hitting silver in some of the posts I have read.  

      I will be hunting pasture, old camp sites and old house sites.  There will be iron and sometimes lots of it.  Hunting for Buttons, bullets and other relics would you use 6 kHz 9 kHz 12 kHz or back to the 18 kHz.  Silver of course would be a high conductor, I would think brass and lead might fall into the mid range conductors.  

      if anyone would share their experience with me I would appreciate it. .

      Once again today my Tarsacci would not turn off. You could feel the tactile switch clicking but no effect. I finally removed the battery cap and turned it off. I reinstalled the battery cap and could hear static in my phones as the cap negative made contact but a blank screen. I pushed and pushed and pushed the on switch to no avail. After removing the battery cap several more times each time reapplying I could hear the static in the phones but no screen. Finally upon installing the cap it came to life. I did notice that the salt balance was not acting as normal also in all frequencies. Keep in mind I have used this machine regularly for two years so I know it fairly well. This only started when I installed the new 12” coil. That is the only difference. I will put the stock coil back on and give it a go.

      I have been detecting for about 30 years I have used a lot of brands and machines.  I was out of detecting for about 5 years due to an injury but recently purchased a Nox 800.  
       
      While looking for videos on the Nox I came across a video of this machine.  The videos are impressive.  So now my research begins in this machine and would appreciate any input from the folks here.  
       
      I live in Arkansas (Ozarks) and basically hunt for civil war relics in pasture and old house sites.  In my mind I thought the stock coil would be the way to go but some are talking about how well the Beast separates in Iron. 
       
      just asking for honest feedback you do not have a claim jumper in me.

      Just got the TARsacci, and am new to it . so I was out at the park and kept getting signals that after digging the plug i got no sound. so I thought G WIZZ could anything be that deep ? so i dug down and down and finnaly the pinpointer started to beep. and i figured it must be a big iron .  but low and behold at a full 14" up comes a brass lamp part. and get this i did not have the detector maxed out  i was in 6.5khz black sand on and salinity on at 37 and a gain of 5 and threshold of 2.  Also it can agnor some kinda beefy foils and not only ignore them on the suface, ( I dug no small foils)  but you can whack a penny derectly under the foil and no masking like 7" under the foil I did the testing . no VLF I know will do that . I will be selling my TDI soon  the Tarsacci not only ignors the small foils but can hit silver and Gold under the foil

      The 12 inch coil is awesome in the iron. Still no silver. But I just haven’t gotten over top of it yet.  That small flat button was at least 12 inches down and next to iron!

      No pics to show, but I did a video, can’t upload it to this forum. But I wanted to say the one reason I wanted to try the Tarsacci was I heard it might be doable in the red dirt of VA.  I have a friend that lives near Culpeper and she has a test garden. Items have been in the ground for about 5 months.  The tarsacci heard the targets at different depths with no issues.  I love this machine and will use it at the upcoming hunts this fall in the red dirt!  The deus struggled and only heard a few targets in the same test garden.
