Got a couple beaches here that are similar so I use my Multi Kruzer on them. Go insane with the pi. Sacrifice depth for sanity i guess. Looks like you did pretty well anyways 🙂

The day wasn't a total lose and you came back with some nice finds.

Good going and I wish you better luck on your next hunt.

Thanks. It's really getting harder to sneak out any silver there. It just involves slowing down and digging more. As for the trashed beach, I'll hit it again when there is a really low tide. This is an old beach, older than my good beach. It's regularly hit by a lot of detectorists and I'm sure they just dig the absolute good signals. I know a lot of Excal's and EQ's have hit it. Not sure about any other brands, but they definitely cherry pick it. Makes it hard to search for the deep targets there. I'm definitely happy for the silvers I found at the good beach, just a bit disappointed that I could not try my method on this beach. It has the potential for Seated coins. If I lived closer, I would clean out sections and go for the deep ones.

Thanks. I'm very happy I did get a bunch of silvers. There are days early in the season, that I could not even find 1 silver. It's funny how things work out sometimes. I guess that is what draws us back to the beach every season. You really never know what you are going to find, no matter how well you plan it out. The beach decides what you get 😄

Our beaches have become very clean for two reasons.  One is that we have many detectorists.  The second is that it gets sanded in quite quickly after a storm and also in general.

You did good but I know you want to do better.  Thanks for the photos.

I like that the beaches have a lot of detectorists (as long as they are not PI detectorists) That leaves the deep stuff available without digging the shallow stuff. The sanding quickly part I do not want 😄

      Hi all, just found on Gumtree Aust a Minelab GPX 6000 for sale. Only the box in the picture. Listed yesterday by Shawn Gib from Sydney. Asking $9000.
      Says your beating the que price is firm. Does anyone know who this is? I take it is a fake so be aware, or someone has one from a dealer? cheers sturt

      Firstly my thanks to the guys at Coiltek.
      After dreadful weather here in central Victoria, and recovering from surgery, this morning dawned clear and sunny. Nice hot coffee and before the dew was off the ground I had the 6000 cranked up. Rudimentary reading of the manual the previous day saw the new detector humming sweetly after a short warm up. JP had been most helpful with a few tips on the local Finders forum, so it was quite easy to feel a certain amount of confidence as I ground balanced and paired up the headphones, which are surprisingly good compared to some of Minelab's previous offerings.
      There is a shallow but substantial lead running west to east across my fifty acre property which yielded a small amount of gold to my GPZ a few years back. I had gridded out the most promising area at the time, so it seemed obvious that this would be a good place to test my new toy. Not bothering to take a pick I headed off towards the east end of the block.
      Where on earth did these signals come from? A number were I am sure just shotgun pellets, but a few were at a reasonable depth as I tilted the coil to get some idea of just how deep. The more interesting signals I marked with boot scuffs and will check out within the next few days. I did not get to go back for my pick as a visitor turned up to have me check his detector.
      Initial impressions; Pretty damned good.

      Six Thousand dollars to put out on anything is a large investment to make .
       I just wonder how many of you have committed yourself to buying the 6000 already?
       I’ve had a long talk with one Minelab dealer and he has been told that the 6000 may slow in coming to the US because of the high volume going to other countries. That’s due to the gold rush is there not here.
       For you that live in gold country it may be a easy discussion but for those of us  that don’t we may have to think about it a while.
       I myself don’t have a bass boat parked in my drive with a big motor and trailer so this year I’m going to be good to me .
       I will have a 6000 as soon as I can get  my hot little hands on one.
       How about you is Santa going to come early?
       The Best!

      8 grammer found at 11 inches.  Nothing special as most detectors PIs should see something that big at that depth, but at least we get to see a big one finally found on film.

      Well, this was my final beach hunt on this beach until after Labor Day. I needed 5 silvers to make it an even 200 from this beach this season. I made it out in the sun longer than I thought I would – from 8 AM until 3 PM. Got a farmer’s tan in one sitting.   😄101 coins including 4 silvers. I did not make 200 no matter how hard I tried. So 199 it is, and I am happy for that, considering the number of visits I missed due to Covid restrictions. I just could not squeak out that one more silver. It’s funny when you stay in the sun digging all day, strange things happen to you on the trip home. Like scratching your back and your hand cramps closed. So, you use you other hand to open it and then that hand cramps shut Dehydration, even with 64 ounces of hydration drinks, just doesn’t cut it. I’m fine now but getting old sucks!      😡First target of the day was the Walking Liberty Half. Then a lull and I knew it would be a long day. Managed 2 nicer condition (and dated) Buffalo nickels. Pictures were taken when it was getting dark, so the are a bit rough. Later I’ll post all the silvers for the season and total for the other seasons combined. One thing I can say about the GPX is that it can find the half dollars like no other machine I have used, including the Equinox. Best of luck to you guys that can continue hunting beaches. I will be rooting for you to get gold      👍
