  1. Thankfully my 800 hasn't leaked yet, but, I'm on my 3rd Profind 35 since Feb. and may have to send this one in because the speaker quit working after being used in knee deep water.
  2. That a great place to take a vacation!! That kind of hunting could spoil a guy really fast, congrats on some awesome finds Steve.
  3. If they combine the best of the CTX and the Equinox, they'll hit a home run. I like the Equinox for deep coin hunting, but the CTX gives so much more target information. Combine both and I'm a buyer.
  4. I was able to get back to the lake this morning before the crowd took over. Took me about an hour in the water, to hit the wedding band in knee deep water. I don't recall what it read, but, out of the water it hit at 5, weighs a whopping 3 grams, 14K. It says wedlock on the inside. The inner layer looks to be white gold, with an overlay of yellow on the outside. The 8000 seems to run smoother with black sand and salt on for some reason, this is a fresh water lake btw. My settings were: -30 disc -2 Threshold 7-Sensitivity Manual GB at 638 12 Khz Salinity at 28
  5. Great job Steve, very nice coins.
  6. I have a pair for the Nox I use in waist deep water, my only complaint is wind noise. I have a pair of Nokta waterproof phones for the Simplex that seem to be louder and less prone to wind noise. I'm sure if I used Tony's underwater the volume would be adequate. The build quality is great on Tony's compared to the Nokta's.
  7. I had a guy approach me at the lake today who lost a 14K college class ring size 11. I told him I would spend time looking for it and get it back to him if I happen to recover it. I have a 10K college class ring I found this year(unable to locate owner) but, it's a 10K. On the Simplex, it reads 64-65, the Nox hits at 20-21 I'm wondering how much of a difference the 14K will read. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  8. Have the first 100 buyers been pre-selected? I was sure hoping to get in on the first batch.
  9. I need to get a quality pair of waterproof headphones for the Nox. My question is, what kind of sound do the piezo's give compared to speakers? I doubt I'll spend much time, if any, under water. Tony's phones are my first pick if I get piezos, LS Pelso if I go with speakers. Thanks.
  10. Great hunt Steve, nice collection of coins. I'd take that hunt any day.
  11. No I hunted the majority of the park, this was the only section that produced heavily. Very little came from where the vintage playground equipment was. All the playground equipment had been there since the early 60s. The spot that produced the most, was just out in the open nothing in particular about it.
  12. I was hunting an old city park that dated back to the thirties and forties. The barbers all came from an area across from the train depot in the same town. One of the tokens is an Oklahoma tax token, the other one I can't quite make it out until I get home to clean it. Everything came from a small area about 30 to 40 foot wide by 150 foot long
  13. Lol....it's a roll of the dice, I certainly was second guessing myself in the beginning. You never know how it's going to play out.
  14. Finished up my road trip today on a good note. Started the trip up in the Texas panhandle where I did quite well at an old park. Dug lots of silver, wheats, couple of rings and a couple of tokens. I've been doing a little relic hunting in southern New Mexico the last couple of days at a 1850s fort site. Manage to put the coil over three good buttons, some percussion caps, fired mini balls and some buck n ball lead. My detectors of choice were the Minelab CTX 3030 and the Minelab Equinox 800. I used the CTX primarily for coin shooting and the Equinox for relic hunting. Second picture is from hunting in Texas. I'll be headed back first thing in the morning to Central Texas to unwind and get ready for another work week, thanks for looking.
