600 Nets Me A Two Ring Morning

Recommended Posts

It’s been a struggle to get out and hunt lately as I edge closer to my 2nd hip replacement but I got to run my 600 on a small beach north of Ventura this morning that I’ve always wanted to hit. It’s a small beach but gets lots of use as a day camp area on the Rincon. The dry sand produced over 30 bottle caps and there is no question what is when you hear it. I only dug them so I could clean out the area when I return. The wet sand was pretty quiet but I netted the two rings in it. The turquoise/silver was a consistent 23 and the junk ring rang at 13-14 I thought I had white gold when I saw it in the scoop. 

I hope to get out one more time between now and next Friday as that is surgery day. Getting older sure does put a crimp in the lifestyle 😉

Nice rings; even that junk one is attractive.  Always enjoy your posts, Skate.  Stay positive with that next hip replacement.  I look forward to viewing your future finds after you tell us how well it went!

Thanks all.  Hopefully after Friday I can say goodbye to avascular necrosis forever. I was diagnosed in the fall of 2013 and my right hip collapsed and was replaced 3 years ago. My left finally gave away in the past couple of months. Metal detecting on one wheel is not exactly super productive.

Skate --

NICE FINDS!  As for the hip, a friend/detectorist that I've known for years just had his hip replaced, and he's having (or perhaps just had) the other one done.  The first one didn't keep him down for too long, so I'm hoping and praying the same for you!

Keep us posted!

      Hi All,
      As I looked on the website of my french md-dealer I saw an adapter to fold the grip/pod of the EQX into the armcuff. Not for me, but maybe something of interest to some of you who like to take your EQX travelling in a small case...
      FYI:  Here's the link: http://www.shop-lefouilleur.com/v2/fr/nouveautes/842-bascule-poignee-equinox-7861560031186.html

      There is a thread on "other sites' asking about recovery speed and depth? With SALT WATER. The only question was do you loose depth, in a higher recovery?  I would say with the NOX at 6 there is a balance with quiet running and depth in salt water.[esp with black sand]  With a machine like the Sovereign in all metal Pinpoint mode it is doubtful you can overswing or swing this too fast on ANY salt beach. Yesterdays take with the sovereign in all metal pinpoint [for those who never had a 186 coin day]. [347 pesos]

      I was hoping to be posting Gold Kruzer finds but haven't gotten to use it yet due to a missing part saga that is dragging out into week 4.   So I took my trusty F75 LTD out this weekend and found this little white gold beauty.   A nice solid 18 TID number on the F75.  
      Resizing has clearly removed the K content.  I'll have to have it tested to find out.   Thought it was platinum at first but decided the stones dictate a white gold.
      Anyway....it made my day.  Maybe it will juice up yours too.

      Is it better to do manual balancing or autotracking in salt water? On dry sand I have not found great differences, but in sea water the doubt remains, it would seem that autotracking tends to eliminate weak signals, according to you which is the best solution?

      I got a call early this morning to find a ring for a lady in Oxnard. Big diamond ring, silver is the metal, stamped .925.
      By the way I found it haha. Obviously using the nox.
      I'm curious what you think the Nox pegged it at.

      I hunted a 20' x 30' site 5 years ago using CTX-3030 with small 6" coil and pulled 2 Barber Quarters,  1 Seated Liberty Quarter,  and 2 Barber Dimes. 
      I hunted the exact same 20x30 spot 2 days ago with EQ-800 and stock coil, as Lunk had my 6 sniffer.  Here is what the $2500 CTX-3030 missed. 
      1903 V Nickel,  1883 Indian Head Cent,  1897 Barber Dime and 2 early Wheat Cents I didn't take pics.
      The only thing I can contribute is the Multi IQ Technology and faster recovery of Equinox is superior for this type of site, high iron trash content.
