Rye Patch Nv Field Training With Gold Detector Purchase

Recommended Posts

There are quite a few newer folks on the forums and some are about to purchase a gold detector.  I want to give you an update.

My Field Staff Experts and I will be offering our 1st of 2019 season a 3 Day Field Training on Gold Detectors, Friday April 12th - Sunday 14th.  I was just notified a couple can not make it and one other from back east won't either.  This means I have 3 openings right now.

Any customer who purchases a gold detector from me of $2500+ can take the class for free.   With the GPZ-7000 promo going on right now and you getting the additional 19" coil (valued at $1500).  Purchase one of these from me...ATX Deep Seeker, GPX-4500, GPX-5000, SDC-2300 or GPZ-7000 and you get a variety of classes to choose from.  Yes I also offer a 15% Military discount on Minelabs.

How good is our training?  Just ask the folks who have taken the class (some of them are on this forum).

Please do not think you are going on a gold hunt.  Our training is for Educating you on the proper use of your detector.  Each of my staff members and I will be plugging in our headphones into a splitter with your phones and into your detector while teaching you the sounds to walk away from and the ones to investigate.  We'll be explaining how to tell ground noise from a genuine target doing the details over and over.  Each of us say the same thing, but in different words/tones, so after 3 days of instruction, you actually start to understand.  From past experiences, the most gold is usually found on the last day, as you are starting to put everything together.  We teach much more with the detectors, their technologies but I won't go into detail.

Contact me direct with any questions.

It’s been several years since my GPZ 7000 purchase from Gerry (and before that the GPX 5000), and even with his instruction, it would take me more time to really feel confident behind this beast of a detector.  Gerry and his staff are absolutely the best option to consider adding - if you are in the market for any of these machines.  They got me “up and producing” much quicker than I had expected to be, given all the variables you’re dealing with.  

They will get you up and running too, and in many cases you’ll be finding those prized yellow targets, they honestly will.  These instructors have incredible time and experience on every machine, and unless you already bring that kind of knowledge to your purchase - they are essential, if not one of the best reason to buy thru Gerry.

The better the detector IMHO, the more you need advise by those that have driven it, and figured it out before you.  Finding this yellow medal is tough, and learning what to listen for essential, understanding what some of those critical variables are are equally important, unless you’re just plain lucky.....   It’s the edge you can’t really get just by reading about it, you have to hear it, and have it pointed out to you.   Lean on his and their knowledge.... it works.

And No, this is unsolicited and not a paid commercial for Gerry, he’s just really great at this.  I’ve hunted with some of his staff, like “Lunk”, and that man is a human gold vacuum in the field, but he’s earned it all by his devotion to it, much as Gerry has.

Anyway - that’s my 2 cents.  Good luck out there!

Like Dave I have been to a couple training session with Gerry's team. Yes, Gerry promotes his products and you have to respect that because field training isn't cheap. But these training sessions are the difference between bumbling along getting frustrated and actually knowing how to detect for gold.  If you come to the training to learn rather than expecting to find gold, you will come away from the 3 days knowing your machine, understanding settings, knowing about coil control, understanding how to pinpoint and dig targets, and maybe having some strategy for future detecting. You see gold and listen to how gold sounds. You will spend time plugged in with folks who really know how to find gold. You will be in the company of folks with a common interest. You might find gold during the training, but don't count on that. In my experiences several people have found gold, but not everyone in the training. But everyone gets a chance to listen to targets as they are being dug.

Camp on-site if you can and if the weather cooperates. AND no  this post was not solicited. Just a satisfied customer.

      The Dankowski forum has been having display issues for some time now. That was bad enough, but now they apparently did not renew the domain name in time. The site is offline and last I tried I got redirected to some virus scamming site. Hopefully Tom did not lose the domain name entirely. Anyway, be careful going there right now. I’m not even posting a link due to what happened to me.

      So, retiring soon and have held a claim in Rye Patch for several years.  Live in Wa State and am interested in possibly partnering with someone in the area to co-explorer the claim.  Any interest?

      Tarsacci MDT-8000 metal detector

      Happy New Year!
      It has been a couple years of furious activity in a normally slow moving industry. We are in a Golden Age of detector hardware, with intense competition driving prices lower while fostering innovative new designs. Most of the action has been from manufacturers outside the U.S. - will 2019 be the year U.S. manufacturers strike back?
      It will be interesting but rumors are thin on the ground right now. New models appearing are niche models, like the new XP ORX, aimed at the gold prospectors. A new manufacturer has appeared, Tarsacci, with the new MDT 8000 that initially anyway seems to be aimed at beach hunters.
      The machine I most have my eye on is the upcoming Fisher Impulse AQ. I am satisfied with what VLF technology exists now, so all I need is a PI detector at least as powerful as a Garrett ATX in a housing weighing under 5 lbs. I sold my ATX and currently do not have a PI and am waiting on what Fisher has to show before deciding what to do about that. F75 replacement? I will believe it when I see it but the Aqua Manta is all but assured for 2019.
      I lobbied Garrett for years to make a LTX (Lightweight ATX) but to no avail. However, with the new AT Max just out it does make me wonder what Garrett has up their sleeve for 2019. If not a replacement for the embarrassingly long in the tooth GTI 2500 than perhaps my wished for lightweight ATX? A guy can hope but I am not holding my breath. Garrett has pushed single frequency as far as they can so their next step will be revealing.
      Minelab is still consolidating the Equinox rollout and a raft full of new gold machines in the last few years. They seem well set at the moment. I wish I could get a SDC 2300 in a Eureka Gold box but that is one wish I doubt will be granted.
      Nokta/Makro? They have long been known to be working on a PI detector so maybe the new Fisher Impulse AQ will have a competitor? It is almost 100% that Nokta/Makro will release a true multifrequency detector in 2019 so there will be that to look for. That and the soon to be released Nokta/Makro Simplex, a new low cost multipurpose detector.
      Tarsacci MDT 8000? I will let the beach and relic hunters sort that out.
      Tesoro is gone now so we can officially ignore them without feeling guilty about it.
      White's I will continue to hope beyond hope that a working version of the Half Sine Technology may finally appear. Fingers crossed as always, but the odds are low. One does get the sense that White's really does need to hit a home run however so the pressure is on to get it out the door. This could short circuit other developments above were it to actually happen. I’m not holding my breath however.
      XP just started shipping the new X35 coils and ORX model, so 2019 may be a quiet one for them.
      And with that, best wishes for a great 2019 to one and all!!

      Rick Kempf passed this to me and it does not look like good news. It is being reported most of the people at Tesoro have been laid off.
      Tesoro was not a real old company, since it was founded in 1980, actually making it the newest of the major U.S. manufacturers. Still, the company made its mark with lightweight, high performance detectors. Tesoro was also noted for many years for its exceptional support of the independent metal detector dealer. However, that policy changed after founder Jack Gifford passed away in 2015 and the company seems to have been on cruise control ever since.
      There are probably not too many people surprised by this, but if true it marks a sad day in metal detecting history.
