Thanks Cipher.  Yes, those White's garage sales always have some great deals and interesting oddball items.  Seeing those sales makes me feel better to know I'm not the only one who accumulates years of crap in his garage ...  

 

I don't know what I was thinking, but I bought one of the AF108 military mine detectors.  I'm a military guy and thought this would be cool, I guess.  (from their garage to mine).  They had two of them and they both sold within the first few hours.  There's practically nothing online about the AF108.  Is this a PI detector?  At least now I will have crashed UFO searching covered ...

The AF108 is a PI detector. Ships with OD green harness. Will be a great collector's item or prop for a movie!

I didn't have such great luck with my order. I ordered the 5.3" shooter for my older XLT/5900di Pro SL models and a bunch of other odds and ends like a diving rod, patches etc to fill the order more since shipping within certain parameters was the same. A week later I check UPS tracking and they dropped it off on a post office a day early and the wrong one with no call or explanation as to why they didn't deliver it to my address as usual. What usually happens here is it gets sent back if it ends up at the wrong post office, so I called up and they were nice enough to say come on over and grab it. I opened it and no coil. It was crossed off the order even though from all indications my order went through at checkout. So now I have all these other odds and ends I just ordered kinda because haha and not the coil I was excited about. I got over it, but then later in the week I see that same coil advertised again on Facebook to promote the sale, but at this point I'm too jaded to try it again. Same with the 15" coils. Very tempted on those, but I was left scratching my head at the whole transaction. I guess it was just my turn lol. Love Whites anyway.

      I bought my Simplex + from a dealer and when this same dealer has the Vanquish I may buy it too . For the cost of one detector just last year I can buy two now for maybe less money.
       Whatever I buy it won’t be coming from a Sports store. I can see me asking a sales person all the about the Vanquish and them reading off the box on what it had to offer.
       I feel that the major cause of a detector finding it’s self in the dark part of a closet is because of no help after the sale.
       Some years back my mom like going to garage sales and ever so often they would have a detector. The best one I got for 5 dollars and it still had foam in the battery box .
       I’m one that don’t have to need a detector to buy it. I find myself the enjoyment of just having it . It has nothing of being better than one other that I have but just the claim to fame that I have have it in my hot little hands.
       I’m the biggest kid you will ever see in a candy store where metal detectors are sold..

      Minelab decided to emulate Garrett and put together their own group of social media “stars” called the Detexperts. I thought it was a good idea since social media is where most of the action is these days. I am not talking just Facebook, but also YouTube, Instagram, etc.
      The thing is I figured when Vanquish hit the streets we would see all sorts of activity from the Detexperts, and there has been nothing. Zilch. I would have thought Minelab would send them all a Vanquish or something to roll out a social media blitz. Ironically it is people who jumped on the early buy at Dick’s Sporting Goods that are posting all the videos.
      I have to admit I am puzzled by Minelab’s marketing at times and can’t really figure out what the whole Detexpert thing is all about.
