  1. To find something, anything gold, I tried beaches, water detecting, playgrounds, etc... and finally scored! 😂 10k. Rang up 13-14 on the Equinox 600 which is usually pull tabs.
  2. I got a pack of these to use as well. I actually have one of the factory screen protectors on, with the Zagg on top and covering all the whole face. The Zagg works great for protecting everything. I've hunted at least 10 hours in the water now too and the Zagg has stayed firmly stuck with no water seeping under.
  3. Alaska Mining and Diving Supply. When I contacted them, they were out, but put me on their waiting list. It must have been short because it was only a week or two before they contacted me and said they had one with nobody's name on it. That was just a week ago.

    6" Coil Making Me Happy

    Nice finds. My 6" coil came yesterday. Mounted it up and played around with it in the backyard. Sure is nice swinging that light little coil! Looking forward to the weekend to try it out in the wild.

    I got an email tonight from Brian at AMDS saying he had a six inch coil with no one's name on it, so i called him and ordered it!

    Equinox 6" Coil

    I got on the waiting list about 2weeks ago with Serious Detecting and got an email last night saying it was in stock. I got online with the store and they showed one in stock, so into my cart it went and on to checkout! Looking forward to trying it out!

    Glad I Waited For An '800'

    Looks like you've gotten some nice finds and I'm glad your liking the 800. I'm not Bayard, but I choice the 600 over the 800 partly because it was available then and because I didn't have any need for the WM08 module, nor did I think I'd do much tweaking with the extra settings on the 800 (and indeed, I seldom find myself changing much from the factory settings on the 600). I bought a pair of aptX LL headphones on sale before my 600 arrived for less then $50. So, with the $250 I saved over the 800, I spent $50 on the aptX LL headphones and I still have $200 to use for six inch coil.

    Need Some Help On Beach 1 Or Beach 2

    I think you might be confusing Park 2 and/or Field 2 with Beach 2. Park 2 and Field 2 should be more sensitive to small gold then Park 1 or Park 2, but Beach modes do not work that way. Beach 1 seems intended for Wet and Dry Sand and Beach 2 for in the water.

    Cheap Carbon Fiber Shaft

    After taking my 600 in the water a couple times, I decided to make a one piece upper shaft like NSC did. I got a 22 x 20 x 1000 carbon fiber shaft for about $28 with express shipping (could have left free ground for $5 less) and a plugger shaft lock for $13 both from eBay. I made my shaft 26" long, carefully marked and drilled all my holes, sealed them with superglue and put it all back together. Super tight lock up and looks great! Cost me only $41.
