  1. Theres nothing on there about the Laser detectors they sell.
  2. If your in the UK . If i remember right a local dealer to me has the Compadre in stock , i'm sure they have a few still . If your here call Detecnicks tel . 01243 545060 or look up their site. You need the UK number too .
  3. That could be all their doing ? In that case if they aren't making machines ? as soon as the last machine is sold in the shops they may carry on repairing for the time til the end of the last warranty ? With Tesoro being so quiet how can anyone know ?
  4. Its not good business sense either . People wont know if they should buy one or not . And i have to say i only know one person who has one . Every time i go to my local dealer that sells them , they say they rarely sell them . If Tesoro / Laser is going to get sales going again they need to up date their models considerably . With machines like the Equinox , Deus / ORX and new models from Macro etc . Tesoro either have to update or fold. I started out detecting late in 2002 and the only machines i remember them bringing out were the Lobo and Wolftrax . And they are old style machines. Before Minelab brought out the Equinox i thought Minelab were getting ready to bite the dust Hobby wise but they seem to have woken up again , for now. Maybe another company "Whites" should look out too , their hobby machines are old mostly except for a few cheap machines but their top end is dated i think. I think there are too many detector companies out there and i bet there will be a few going to the wall sooner or later. Maybe they have other business like Industry and Mine and Gold but they are not for most and certainly not in Europe. Also the Equinox has hit sales of other companies "maybe not Garrett" and look at the secondhand market , an ET selling just before the Nox came out was likely to fetch £650 for a 2 year old mint condition one but now its sub £500 and even then they are hard to sell . And what about the CTX depreciating value from new ! They sell them with extras like the big coil and maybe a probe etc but try selling them after a year . E.bay is awash with old FBS/FBS2 machines selling for way under their true value . I think they have become very cheap detecting these days . I for one wont be selling my ET , it wont get a good enough price and is too good a machine to sell in its current condition for Peanuts.
  5. Should i assume that DM on the inside of the band stands for Diamond ?
  6. I use Beach 2 everywhere at the moment but have my own settings . I cannot remember them off my head . But Gray Ghost headphones are a must to get the best from this machine . My beaches do get done a lot by others too , and Cashless society is killing the new losses but there are still a lot of older stuff about if the conditions are right. There is no way to discrim Aluminium .
  7. Yesterday morning i went to one of my beaches and searched from mid day till 4pm sunset . I found the beach looking quite good and thought it would be good for Gold . I started on a small beach first and found a few older Pound coins and other coins that had obviously been there a long while. I then hopped over onto another beach by that one which is normally very good in the Summer wasn't good and i found almost nothing . Going onto the next beach i found this beach to be very different and saw very hard cuts into the higher end of the beach . I started to find many coins amongst the millions of nails and other Iron . Half way along i found a few coins and then got a target that i didn't check on the meter and dug it . I suddenly saw yellow and when i picked it up found it was a 22k Gold ring , it says on the ring 22kDM916 . I also found old early 1900's Pre Decimal coins . A short while later i found a Stainless Steel ring and a junk Shark thing and a 1 Euro , a US 2010 Five Cent and a coin with a hole in it . I then turned around and headed back and finished at 4pm . My finds for the day were £35.72p in coinage , a 1 Euro , a US 5 Cent , an unknown coin , several Pre Decimal coins , a junk Shark , the Stainless Steel ring and the 22k Gold ring . The stone in the pictures is a lot clearer , it might be the Bluetac thats making it dull. I would have gone today but i will on Wednesday morning , not sure it will be the same place .
  8. Its a pity that the hobby is turning into a secret society.. I like to share up to a point my experience and on MLO I have my ET beach programs. My Nox beach 2 program seems to work well too . I blame Faceachebook for the demise of forums and also its to blame for the large amount of new small clicky clubs that have formed up lately. They are the sort that flood farmers with requests for land and put farmers off. They are also less likely to declare finds unlike the older more experienced clubs of old. Being in secret groups on Faceachebook means everything is hidden. Faceachebook has a lot to answer for, glad I am not on it . Can someone hack into banks and screw up card and phone payment so cash can come back!
  9. There is always the possibility that they might be lying and do go on forums but dont contribute , just read. Look at the Minelab Owners Forum . 15241 at last count and people register but almost all dont hang around . If you look on the "who's online " its almost all guests . Up till now today its been 40 members and just over 1000 guests . I hope its not peak detecting here in the UK , i want to find a hoard . But i do think its past peak beach detecting now . The cashless society is killing it . My finds rate is killing it too . On my local beaches .
  10. I bought my 6 inch and 15 inch coils today , i also got a new carbon fiber stem . I traded in my Macro Multi Kruzer . Its not getting used so it had to go. Roll on a good ripped out beach now .
  11. Why? Withe the beach hunter being waterproof it will be more likely to last longer .
  12. I have only just found out about the TDI Beachhunter . I had the old TDI a few years ago and always wanted Whites to bring a waterproof version out . Now they have , one day it might be on my list to buy .
