  1. Hey Jasong, Damn, that is disheartening. I will keep a ear and eye out for anyone looking to sell or trade stuff that might be linked back to you. Thank God you had all your detector stuff. Any chance you can share this on my forum, or I could copy/paste if anything to help get the word out in Arizona? My forums - https://forums.robsdetectors.com/ Let me know if I can help. Also, Doc spends a lot of time in the general area I believe, you might also want to inform him. Rob Allison
  2. Hey Guys, I have been carrying Detech searchcoils for years and they have really came a long way. There has been a lot of demand for this new, giant 32" coil here in the US. I have about a half dozen pre-orders on them already for Minelab Pulse Induction owners, mostly GPX users. If anyone is looking for one here in the US, I can get you one for sure. https://www.robsdetectors.com/detech-32-concentric-search-coil-for-minelab-gpx-gp-sd-series-gold-detectors/ $1,299.00 US with FREE Shipping/Insurance P.S. A friend of mine is excited to run one in Florida on some beaches he found some very nice Spanish gold coins. There hasn't been anything this large out yet, so many beach and cache hunters will love this one beyond all the gold nugget hunters.
  3. Yes, what terrible news. Barry and Leigh are close friends and it was tragic to hear this. Thoughts and prayers during this time for Barry and family.
  4. Hey Guys, Sorry I missed these posts. I can tell you Andy Sabisch has been using and writing publications and books on the Minelab metal detectors for at least 20 years, if not more. Some of the best books written on how to use them are written by Andy. I highly recommend this new book for any Equinox owner, regardless of your experience level with the detector. We just received in several more cases, but they will go quickly. https://www.robsdetectors.com/the-equinox-series-handbook-by-andy-sabisch/ Clive also writes a few smaller booklets on the Equinox, one is a Beginner and then the other is more Advanced. I would suggest all three, as they all have helped me at some point with settings or general use. Hope this helps a bit, Rob Allison
  5. Hello All, I can get some pictures up, but I have two really good, used Minelab Pulse Induction metal detectors. I have a Minelab GP 3000 and a Minelab GPX 4000. I'm asking $1000.00 firm for the GP 3000 and $1500.00 for the GPX 4000. This price does not include shipping, so we would have to figure out shipping. Both units have stock accessories and some extras. I will post more details later, but I know both of these units will sell quickly. If you're interested, contact me at - Rob's Detector Sales 623.362.1459 rob@robsdetectors.com Thanks!
  6. Hey Steve, For the price and performance only (not weight or ergonomics), I still think the Minelab GPX 4500 is the best bang for the buck here in the US. The price is fair, the performance is great and you have all the options of aftermarket coils and accessories. That being said, the GPX 4500 will be discontinued again soon. I'm not sure what is left, but I believe what is left is all we will ever see again. Rob Allison
  7. Hey Trev, Great videos on the new SDC Gold Extreme coils. Many customers have questions about them, so these new YouTube videos definitely probably address all questions. Rob Allison
  8. Hey Guys and Scott, I have sold a bunch of all sizes. Really no bad comments on any sizes. The most popular are the small 10x5 and the larger 14x9. The small coil is more sensitive than the stock 8" round and the larger coil is getting more depth. I know some expect the larger coil to still maintain the same sensitivity as a smaller coil and still get more depth, but that really not how coils work. There is always a trade off one way or another, more sensitivity/better pinpointing/less depth easier to work in tight areas for smaller coils. The larger coils typically loose some sensitivity to smaller gold as you increase the size, but you start to gain in more depth on larger pieces of gold and more coverage per swing. Lastly, the weight, for the most part the larger solid coils will have much more weight. A good bungee like the one Doc now sells - Doc’s The Amazing Qweegle™ Double Adjustment Point Bungee - $24.95 https://www.robsdetectors.com/docs-the-amazing-qweegle-double-adjustment-point-bungee/ Keep in mind also, if you purchase one of the new Coiltek Gold Extreme searchcoils for the SDC 2300, you will need one mounting and accessory kit. The new Gold Extreme coils by Coiltek are now giving SDC owners more options they never had before with just the one standard 8" mono searchcoil. Why Minelab don't do this originally on many of their detectors is always that "million dollar question!" P.S. The new SDC coils are NOT waterproof, just water resistant. Wishing you all the best of success out there! Rob Allison
  9. Hey Guys, Being a dealer for over 20 years, I have to tell you, Bill is one dealer with a lot of integrity. I have known Bill forever and he is only down the road as we would say. In this business, it seems typical that most dealers find each other as competitors rather than friends. I have to say, Bill and I are long time friends and dealers selling pretty much the same products. We have never had our issues, he does his thing, I do mine. There is enough business out there for both of us to do well and even support and work together. There are times when both of us relied on one another to make sure our own customers were able to get a product in a timely manner. No question, Bill makes great informational type videos on many detectors such as the Minelab Equinox series and Gold Monster 1000. It's great we have people like Bill that are willing to help inform and educate the public about this great hobby of metal detecting and prospecting for gold. Keep doing what you are doing Bill! P.S. Save me a nugget or two out there at San Domingo if you would. Rob Allison
  10. Hey Guys, Here is part 3 of working that wash. This go around I got 3 nuggets, two decent one dink. I was working a bit out of the creek this time, so I didn't get as much gold. It seems like down in the gut, I was getting more pieces of gold.
  11. Hey Andy, I ended up selling my SDC 2300. I was going to hold onto it, but over the Summer I don't have a need for a handful of detectors. When it cools off a bit, I will have another one in stock to use.
  12. Hey Guys, Beatup, Jeff and MSC - Thanks for the comments. I have another video uploading now from today's adventure. It might be tomorrow before it's complete. Wishing you all much success out there!
  13. Ya, looks like I'm only getting about 12-15 Mbps download and about 1 Mbps upload. I do live in a rural area, so I'm sure that don't help. I have looked into the compression files, but I believe you are correct on the quality of them when they are compressed. Best method for me now is to upload overnight and then in the morning they are normally ready to publish on Youtube. Thanks!
  14. Hey Guys/Gals - Still playing around with my camcorder/digital camera to get back in the groove of HD videos. I'm still struggling with the upload time, video like this one around 5 mins are taking several hours to upload in 1920x ..... resolution. Here are a few quartz/gold specimens I have found over the last couple of years. The bigger piece I still need to break up.
