  1. The Quest Scoopall works pretty well for little targets like splitshot weights and stud earrings. It’s around $90 if memory serves.
  2. Interesting, C-scope is an English or European brand. Most of there previous machines were analog controls (knobs and switches). Looks like they are moving towards the digital world, probably to avoid Tesoro’s fate. Since they show it hunting in a field I would presume it’s not a PI but who knows. They do make a rather affordable PI already, not waterproof but a simple machine that is a stable wet sand hunter.
  3. I would imagine that splash resistance is fine for 99.9% of the users. Just being able to hunt wet salt sand without all the falsing from a single frequency machine will be the selling point to most new users. Water hunting is tough work and the casual beginner will likely never submerge the detector. I would wager that the vast majority of AT series, NokMak Anfibs/Kruzer, and Equinox are never actually used in the water. I’m hoping that we are going to see these new coil sizes for the Vanquish offered for the Equinox.
  4. Appears that a dealer slipped an email through to the public. Saw this posted on a FB group https://minelabmetaldetectors.cmail19.com/t/ViewEmail/j/9595747D37B51BC42540EF23F30FEDED/4D4D7C2B363E32D96A4D3D471B02C3D7?fbclid=IwAR1zieN-LaN_n3dUYeC2uF-vn7WHqc3km28-GwJaeVm953q_6Sh27-Xko74
  5. Steve pretty well nailed it!!!!!!! 1...LOTS of research 2...LOTS of time with your detector of choice 3....dig LOTS of targets
  6. With gold prices on the rise, over $1500US an ounce right now, up from $1200 at the beginning of the year, I am tempted to sell an ounce of the broken 10 and 14K bits I’ve accumulated. Just curious as to what the rest of y’all do with your gold jewelry. Save it or sell it??
  7. Where are you located?? Someone from the forum may be near enough to lend a hand and a little experience.
  8. Colonial Metal Detectors is having a close out sale on the Pirate and PiratePro models from Detector Pro. A friend told me about it last week. The Pirate is $120 and the Pro $160 if memory serves. Good deal for an emergency backup detector.
  9. Great write up of a great recovery!! God is good!!!
  10. I wonder if they will eventually sell individual EQX pods. Before I learned how good the EQX is at gold jewelry hunting I was toying with getting a GM1000 for those tasks and I noticed that they sell the GM components separately. Already having spare rod bits you can get a control unit, single coil and AA battery pack for a lot less than the whole package.
  11. Mine passed with flying colors. Took it to a swimming hole as soon as it was charged. Haven’t tested the max depth though. Usually only get about shoulder deep with it. 🧜‍♂️
  12. Pretty sure there is a gore-tex vent at the base of the handle. There really has to be to equalize the pressure changes. Even the smallest volume of air space can change quite a bit with changing temps.
  13. Hard to say what the cause is without knowing the whole story. Could be a random production problem. Could be from an undisclosed impact. Could have been left in a super hot car/trunk. Fortunately they are all still under warranty and by all “known” accounts, not that many judging by the forums and FB, Minelab has dealt with them promptly and fairly. The big question for me is when are they gonna wake up and let CoilTek make us some elliptical coils for the Equinox!!!!!!!!!!
  14. When you say “filter” are you referring to the noise cancel setting??
