It would be really good if everyone can leave a review in the database of detectors they own, or have owned. It could become a very valuable resource for people. I wish it was around and full of reviews when I was first looking to buy detectors.
What makes it so helpful is the reviews are done by the users, not marketing departments so the reviews are "real"
We all know how creative the metal detector manufacturers are with their marketing.
It doesn't matter if your review is positive or negative or both, it doesn't have to be huge, even just a star rating and a few lines of what you liked or disliked about the detector, it all ads up over time and the more people that do it the better it gets.
It would also be good to eventually get a coils database going and do the same thing for coils..
So off you all go
Start reviewing 🙂
My Tarsacci Mdt-8000 Commentary, Pics And Videos. Unit Delivery Rescheduled For Delivery On 12-15-2018By Tnsharpshooter
This will be where I will post information. I will try and answer any questions I can about detector. Other folks who have experience with detector and wish to join in, by all means do so.
Should have detector today sometime. Thought I would get this thread started to save time later. I will only be using Tarsacci on turf, not salt water/sand application.
I may do some testing on freshwater beach due to lower minerals present.

So I’m a total noob. I’m getting my first detector later this week, an Equinox 800. In fact, it has already arrived at my local dealer but my Garrett Carrot won’t be in for another day or two so I’m waiting to get everything all at once. I want to create a test garden and have read various bits here on the forums about folks using them but can’t really find any information on how to actually create one. If this has been covered somewhere already, I’d appreciate any direction on how to find it. I’m sure creating a test garden seems pretty intuitive to experienced detectorists but there’s got to be more to it then getting some stuff you want to find and some stuff you don’t want to find and sticking it in the ground. I’m looking to make best use of the liimited space in my suburban lot to maximize learning and continually refine my detecting skills. I’m in southeast Michigan so (I’m assuming) I have very mild soil. Temperatures right now are bouncing around from 20-40 degrees F so frozen ground may limit what I can do until spring. I’m guessing that with mild soil, bench (air) testing may be a close second best to a test garden. I intend to start doing mostly coin shooting in parks and approved public land, then as my skills improve, add in some Lake Michigan fresh water beach hunting. Then, if I can gain some research skills, perhaps do some relic hunting on private land (with permission of course). With these parameters in mind, any advice would be appreciated, not only for how to create and use the garden but tips for bench testing too. Thanks!
I have been experimenting with adjusting reactivity using wireless module only using version 5.2. Some folks may not be aware version 5.2 allows for reactivity setting using wireless module. As far as I can tell it does NOT allow silencer adjustment per se. I have a video in the works and it will be up sometime in near future explaining.
