  1. Lobo was designed by Gillford. Lobo ST was designed by Dave Johnson.
  2. Nisaku is the top brand for stainless steel knives. I have had mine for 5 years now, thousands of holes plugs dug with it. Never needed sharpening. This year I bought a brand new one of the same model. The only thing I did was reshape the handle to fit more comfortably in my hand. And they make a mini green version, these work so well when the ground is damp, might favorite. They do have a weakness, the blade after awhile breaks at the handle. The rule with these is not to use these little guys as prybars!!! These are sharp and remain sharp and will cut your hands like a razor knife.
  3. If you switch to wired headphones, you will hear the Threshold at 1 or 2 nicely. Up the volume to max on the control box and adjust volume on the headphones if they have volume control. Using the cheap wired Calrads, detector audio is really nice.
  4. Depending upon your computers hardware and software as well as the OS, it may take several updating attempts before your computers sees the Legend. It will generally take me 7 attempts before the updating process begins. Keep calm and take your time updating. I did not notice any issues when bench testing the Legend with the 1.07 update. It works just fine. Also, picked up a 6" coil, works excellent, very happy with the purchase.
  5. That is going to be fixed in the next update. Try using wired headphones, threshold works as it should.
  6. Too many lazy people who don't read manuals.........seem to always have problems, tinker with settings and get into a big mess, get frustrated.....................................
  7. Use what you like and what works for you as long as your having fun treasure hunting.
  8. Just thinking about this, many might think this is a single purpose machine and they want a multi-purpose mode machine to do it all. Just thinking--how much of the Gold Kruzer was built into the Legend Prospecting mode? I never had the Gold but, now have the Legend.
  9. People these days only know how to push buttons, watching TV screens and want the detector to do everything. The cellphone, computer -future generations. Those that want to hunt with raw power not digitally processed, with no need or wants of all the bells and whistles, just want to hunt and have more precise control adjustments will use an analog with knobs and switches. They would rather hunt than play with the "fiddle sticks". DeepTech is giving Tesoro owners and others, another chance to own a modern day analog detector.
  10. Again, Dilek shows you how far she will go to please customers!
  11. It's all finished up now. Works excellent. Plus I had to replace the Zippy Lipo battery pack, original failed and swelled up.
  12. Started switching out some of the other pots with RV5 precision pots for much finer adjustments and replacing the Silencer pot with a pot similar to what I used with Gain pot.
  13. You will do fine with current 2.78. Myself and others like 2.77, because we like working the detecting into the noisy chattery zone. It's the fringe target depth area. basically your running the detector very hot, not suitable for many. Read more here
  14. Thinned down my herd, it became easier every time one went to a new home. Down to two detectors now. A Blisstool V5 with the 7x9 coil. And my Mirage Pi that I built with three coil sizes. Both are fun to use. Now I wouldn't object if some company or individual wants to send me a detector......
  15. It's not a wrap around. The composition of Canadian clad make it hard for many detectors to decide if its junk or good. Depending upon the year the composition was changed by the mint. Lots of the clad is now steel based with a chrome like plating. So the Id can bounce between numbers, maybe lock on to a particular number range. Or be seen as junk in the low iron range numbers. If the coin is on edge, will definitely be Id'd with a low iron range number. If your digging clad up here, you have to set up your disc to a min. setting that the clad will be accepted when lying flat. You can't hunt the same way here as you would in the US, you'll go away with empty pockets. Canadian clad give most detectors troubles when in disc mode!!! Also, your disc range has to go low enough to accept tiny nails and such to register the edge coins. If you hunt in a true all metal mode, not an issue you'll pick them up.

  16. I think you will enjoy it. I had one of the first production models here in Canada to test and really had fun with it. If you like smaller coils, you can't be without the round 5.7" and or the Super 6.
  17. https://www.noktadetectors.com/nomads-team/ Siren Kimmie has excellent videos regarding the Nokta/Makro detectors, she's a Nomad https://www.youtube.com/c/SirenKimmie/videos
  18. Think part of it is lack of tarrifs, or very low custom and duty fees due to foreign trade deals with those having favorable country status.
  19. The Chinese T2 knockoffs were costing them $30 each to produce. Orig. Quest wireless headphones from the Chinese manufacturer, found could buy the Transmitter and headphones for $12 per set.
  20. S-handle mod. The Blisstool angle of the handle I felt was a bit too steep. Which tended to put my wrist in an awkward position. Didn't feel that comfy after awhile. This is a quick mod. Bliss S-handle Mod Part 3.pdf
