  1. Here’s a photo of the waterproof compadre without the rod/pole. I call it the SS Minnow 😂😂
  2. Still love the Compadre and Mojave. Super simple machines that work great for itty bitty gold jewelry in playground areas and sniffing out coins and relics in heavy iron. I also have a Compadre that I mounted in a waterproof case that is my freshwater swimming hole gold getter!! I’d love to try a Golden uMax if I ever find one to buy.
  3. I feel the high point of the CZ3D was that nickel range gave a high tone. Opened up the ability to cherry pick and still have a bit of the gold ring range in play also.
  4. Since the Vanquish line seems to be aimed at the big box/ sporting goods retail market I would imagine it will be around for a good while. If you look at the shelves where they are sold there is usually a model or two that are sold out. If you consider that 20+ year old Bounty Hunter models still sell by the pallet load at Costco then I’m sure the Vanquish is doing just fine sales wise with the beginner/recreational market. I have a 340that lives in my van for scouting new spots I stumble across and it always seems to do the job and find some goodies. It lacks all the bells and whistles of “professional” models but still packs quite a punch
  5. Where did you see them for sale? I had an older one that got smashed unfortunately. Loved it with the Mojave for getting close tothe metal posts in playgrounds and super trashy shallow spots.
  6. RIP Dave. Had some good exchanges with him on the Friendly forum when I was first starting out.
  7. There’s gold jewelry hiding in all those bits of foil and slaw in our parks. I would wager that the majority of lost gold jewelry is broken chains, charms and earrings that will ID as foil compared to bigger rings in the nickel to tab range. Just have to spend the time digging all the crappy foil and slaw signals til ya find some. I’m not saying it’s guaranteed to be worth your time but ya never know what might pop up!!
  8. The checks in the mail my friend so hopefully you can get some sleep tonight and dream of gold and silver!!
  9. I just enjoy trying out different machines every now and then. After the F19 is gone I’ll be down to a few Tesoros, a NOX and a Vanquish340 I found onsale a few weeks ago for $169, pretty amazing machine for that price point!! Only machine I possibly regret selling was my Explorer II. I miss the power not the weight, LOL! That machine found some deeeep coins. The NOX comes close but hopefully those FBS machines will be the next model for Minelab to replace.
  10. I’m definitely interested in comparing one of these on my F19 against the cleansweep on my Mojave. Having the ID may be useful but I usually use the cleansweep as a jewelry/clad hoover and dig everything. Any idea on a time frame??
  11. How close were the machines while checking the targets? Were they noise canceled near each other? Different noise cancel selections? So many random RF variables come in to play when these machines are within 10 feet of each other it’s hard to pin it down really.
