  1. I’m aware of what 750 is. I’ve got some nice 22k as well. Marked out of country because you rarely see any jewelry made here that’s not marked using the K.
  2. Apparently they make this one as is and others one side white gold the other yellow. Those would not come apart.
  3. I found this one to be an odd ring. It appeared at first to me to be one of those wave rings. But I’m lucky I can see up close pretty well. First guess also….. SS. It’s marked 750 Denmark and tested 18K. Weight was 5.6 grams. I’m hoping there wasn’t a second part to it … but clearly there could be. I’m also hoping the other one wasn’t the one with a 3 C diamond 😂. Deep ring with a lot of pushed in sand over it. Waist deep. So it looks like some sand is moving. My buddy Joe grabbed a nice delicate 14k ID bracelet he didn’t think was real. 2 people in and out of the water. I could get out fairly deep….. but from waist out to neck …. No heavies.
  4. Chase…. Yes I was talking wher the majority of the gold rings hit. When I said notch ….can pass most iron. Then in the upper numbers say above 13 I Pass on those. On the days I’m doing this pattern I watching for pretty solid targets from 1 to 10. I will likely do it more during recent drop times trying to cover as much water as possible. In the winter I slow way down concentrating more on deep targets. Where does foil hit I’d say 2 to 4. Deep foil like pull tabs if they are real deep can upscale into the 23 or little higher …oddly above a quarter… but during your slow checking that target may pop a 6 or 7 …. Pull tab just like deep iron which can wrap around to 27ish BUT will show you some neg 26s in there. I can normally get pretty accurate neck deep where I can’t see the screen …. Just by high vs low tones as well on iron.
  5. I did some testing when i first started out as you can see. This tight gold notch has some advantage .... targets like DEEP pull tabs/aluminum and iron that wraps around jump to around 27. A quarter comes in around 20ish. So if you want to pass coins and pattern hunt in the gold range occasionally its pretty easy to do. Ive been using it a good while now beach hunting and have to say ive not found a gold ring that read iron. YOu do get jitter screen..... not so much when the coil is underwater OR passing over a target. This crude sheet shows 106 gold rings i was using 9khz.
  6. Thanks for that info. That iron piece must weigh 2 ounces. Ya never know….. I had one day I dug 5 knives.
  7. Yes TU on the ring. Brass on the bracelet. Most nickels that been out there on this beach are pretty black. It turns them and silver a gold color at first. Wished they would throw a few more my way. As you can tell I like to check some of the deep iron … but I’ve yet to have one turn into a gold ring.
  8. The guys really cleaned the beach this Summer so it a matter of slow hunting for moved targets. This is photos of my last two hunts. I’ve not hunted a lot … been picking and choosing my days waiting on the winds to change. Couple of smalls….. angle is 8.8 grams of 10k and the crazy looking girl is 2.8 grams of 14k. Waters filling down it’s about 70 so there have been fewer people in the water. Getting some good low tides. Thou there are advantages to hunting high tides. Puts you in places you wouldn’t hunt and it seems salt water activates the target better. This time of the year thou beach rotation should be considered… you have to find those target concentrations that been push or pulled all winter and buried. Big shoutout to SteveG on his shaft. I really like it. I’ve gotten NO movement at those locks or wear. I’v been surprised that I’ve not had to change the coil rubbers yet the coil has stayed tight. Thumbs up Steve. Note that Buffalo nickel. Someone has been dropping them along the beach. They are not common and have not been there long. I’m wondering if maybe it was someone wish along with their ashes. We get a lot of that here.
  9. So this is the Production model Joe? I saw Thomas posted about Eric doing several coils for him.
  10. Nice find. Aaron when you going to take a trip to England with one of the groups to get some goodies? Seems more are group hunting there now.
  11. Again something I questioned from the beginning. I was hunting sometimes 10 hours and the answer buy and carry another battery made no sense. Joe did it shortly after getting his. I chalked it up to …. This wasn’t the production model.
  12. I said that from the start as a beach hunter. Many PIs had an 8” coil. I talked to Bill Crabtree several years back his preferred coil size was 9 or 10”. Having swung the Xcal I just like that side.
  13. Great finds Joe. You have that Yoda thing going with this machine just like the Xcal buddy. What coils working best for you?
  14. He’s great with repairs. He genuinely wants you to have a great experience with this machine. Mines been in salt water now nearly 3 years I bet I’ve not used the PP button but a couple of times.
  15. A lot may depend on how deep you think good targets are too. I’ve found lower freqs tend to pick up a bit more EMI but get you the better depth. I’ve hunted in areas like that, not with this machine, but way to many times hunters run to much power. Back it off and hunt the area several times one day maybe better.
