Odd so many of the same type of ring in same area. Great finds!

I hate those rings because they always give me an uncontrollable urge to take a flat head screwdriver to them.

You reminded me when I almost left a Bvlgari Bzero in the trash bin years ago.

Clueless hunt in a trashy and boring area, with only that ring in three hours underwater.

I was so pissed and tired to don't check immediately the find, leaving the beach with the intention to throw all the nuisance stuff in the first available bin.

Damn, that Gold ring was like stainless steel, with the black brand Bvlgari inscription on the side and a heck of weight too!

Inside It, for my luck, a date and a name plus a 750 Mark😆

      This morning was the first time in 6 weeks that I’ve had a chance to hunt my local beaches at Alma Bay and Horseshoe Bay.. I didn’t bring a detector with me to Canberra where I was helping out after my old man had a hip replacement.. Being away from the island has turned out great as for the first time in years I dug everything.. At these beaches I usually disregard low target IDs on the Nox800, anything below 13-14 nearly always results in pull-tabs, bottle tops or bits of foil (or 5 cents).. I got into the very bad habit of switching to ‘coin mode’, where I look for low 20s to shoot 1 and 2 dollar coins (50 cents usually reads 17 and 20 cents reads 16).. But the sheer joy of getting back into it made me dig every target.. I’m both very happy I did and kicking myself for not always doing so..  
      At Horseshoe Bay I found a chunky gold necklace (585 hallmark) and at Alma Bay a little gold ring ( 375 hallmark) with little purple stones (maybe amethyst?).. And a fist full of dollars.. It’s really made me wonder what else I’ve left behind.. The necklace rang in at 3-4 and the ring at 11, both were just below the surface in wet sand.. It felt as if they were waiting for me to find them, since I’ve been away we’ve had the Easter holidays and 2 public-holiday long weekends.. These are usually good times of the year to get out early in the morning to hit those beaches, and the island's other beach hunters know it too.. But I haven't been so lucky with the bling bling in a long time, it’s definitely back to digging all targets..

      So, I really like the Makro Gold Racer. I keep finding more things about it. Recently, I found a really tiny 14k gold chain visually, just lying on the ground.  I had my compadre and it couldnt pick it up. I took the chain home and tried it on my GR. I had the factory settings, 10 on disc, using Disc 2 the deeper one, and tone break at 30. Nothing, I couldn't get it to detect it.
      So, while I was waving this chain in front of the 10" DD coil I started lowering the disc, I realized the ID number was about 3. So, I experimented with going one number at a time all the way to 0. At 1 I could get a somewhat clear signal. At zero it was a nice signal. Even the big coil coild pick it up at about an inch.
      I have been trying to find micro jewelery with no luck. Maybe this is why. I have not used the disc mode in all metal. You see, I really like the clear signal the disc modes give. I have a hard time "reading" the all metal mode. I can really hear the signals in the disc modes. Why is the all metal mode so hard to understand? So very faint target sounds compared to the really obvious ones in disc.
      So, am I searching in all metal when disc is at 0? It sure seems as deep and sensitive as all metal. I get much more audible info than all metal in my opinion. However, I have to state here, I'm not an expert. I know the all metal has a way of indicating a target with thresh hold sounds too, or, the silence of the thresh hold sometimes on tiny targets. But, it's not as easy as this method. I really could hear this tiny chain this way.
      Can I hunt just as effectively like this or should I keep trying to learn the all metal mode? What's your opinions? And, please, lets keep this discussion to the Gold racer and those who have one. 
      I'm actually really glad to have discovered this. I'm fortunate to have this chain to test.

      My buddy, and member of this forum FlySAR has been providing ring finding service for years in the Portland Metro Area.  As I learned many ropes from him, I became the RingFinder rep for the Olympia WA area before my move to Houston.  Below is the link to a video posted by the Oregonian On-line newspaper on one of his ring finds.  I hope you enjoy the ending as much as I did... Congrats Del, I'm humbled and honored to call you my friend.

      Now, wouldn't it be nice to find something like this!

      Had a first today...not a bucket list item, however. As I was grabbing the Equinox handle after being on the ground for a dig, I felt something like oatmeal between my glove and handle. Hmm, strange. A quick glance reassured me that it was indeed poo. Thankfully, it was not the worst I have ever smelt and there was plenty of Spanish moss to wipe with.🤪
      After that park was enjoyed, I hit another park that has a small pond and tennis courts. Wasn't sure there was going to be anything there, but nothing ventured...
      Besides many quarters at that place (24 for the day), there was a good signal. When I pinpointed and brushed the leaves away, there was the ring staring back at me. Although fake, I guess it's better than another round of oatmeal!
      Please share YOUR favorite run-in with dog Poo while detecting so we can all enjoy and relive the experience with you. Bet there are some really fun ones out there!

      I took my son down to a beach between rain showers today.  When we got there I saw the beach was favorable for a hunt so when I took him home I turned around and went back.  Well, not exactly.  I went back and I forgot my scoop and rain coat so I had to go back again!
      There weren't a lot of targets but I did get a couple of quarters and some indicators but I couldn't really find a pattern/line.  I knew I didn't have much time and I was a bit impatient with my 800/15 so I stepped up the pace and said I only want 'good' targets on my way to a beach area that has given me good success in the past.  Before I could get there I heard this scratchy 8-9 but it was not solid like a good ring.
      After a couple of scoops I could see color in the side of the hole.  That is not a normal thing for me.  I wish I had taken a picture but I just scooped it and looked in the bottom.  It was a great color, not as heavy as I would have liked and it reminded me of a cheap ring style.  But that color had me hopeful for something real.  The rain was coming so I had to turn back.  I had gotten in 1.5 hours.
      When I got to the car I could see 18 C.  When I got home I looked up 18 C and it said it could be the same as 18K or 18 ct if the ring was made in a country where English was not the spoken language.  It cleaned up pretty nice with my ultra sonic cleaner.  It weighs 4.6 grams and is only missing 1 of the stone inclusions.  They are faceted but many are very cracked and chipped up so I don't know what they are made of but the ring itself catches light well and sparkles.

      This was the rainbow on the way home!

      This was the way it looked before I cleaned it up.
