  1. Well I AM AN IDIOT! Turns out my soil isn't bad I am! I got the vanquish 540 and without the ability to screw up the settings I can now reach full depth. Problem wasn't the machines or the soil...
  2. Yes I did.. I was so amazed at how comfortable I was I didnt even get excited when I found it.
  3. It looked like this but you didnt have to put in the freezer. This one could be "recharged" in ice water. Glacier Tek Sports Cool Vest with Set of 8 Nontoxic Cooling Packs Amazon's Ch
  4. I got a call to find an wedding ring for a guy when it was 8000 degrees. I get there and after 1 hr I am dead. He asks me if I would like to use his cooling vest. I said no due to me not knowing what it was. He starts explaining it to me so I gave it a try... ITS AWESOME!!! I detected in 110 heat index and felt kinda chilly. It lasted around 85 min before he changed out the packs. Anyone ever used a cooling vest?
  5. I was referring to the price before the 15%. I should have specified that. The local places I checked were all 899$ prior to discount. I got my first one for 730$ with no military discount. That place is closed unfortunately.
  6. Can someone please message me and advise me what the price should be for a nox 800 w/military discount? I have gotten a few different prices. I will order from someone on here but I need by Friday if possible... ty all
  7. I have a feeling we will see a tempory price cut on the Nox 600 to compete with this apex OR the vanquish software will be updated to include selectable single frequencies. Whites and first texas, nokta need to make a BIG move now.... This is going to be an exciting summer!
  8. Farmers....Its the ladies insurance company that hit me. They bought me a new cell phone and metal detector. I should say gave me money to get new ones.
  9. I had to turn in the nox to insurance company. They gave me 1023.00 so I am good. They wouldn't let me buy it back unfortunately. I am going to check out the Tarsacci.
  10. It also could have been me moving from Illinois to Tn recently and I was just thrown off due to detector acting differently than it used to. It also could be that is was defective in some way. I just want to make sure I have the best detector for my area when I purchase my replacement this week.
  11. Hello all... Looking for recommendations for best coin shooter in this hot dirt. I have used the 800 for a few years but it doesnt work good here in the Lebanon area. The nox was broken in an auto accident and need another detector.
  12. Would it make a difference if a person "replaced" the processor with a faster model? I always thought the money spent on a detector was for the programming and not the hardware? I could be wrong? Probably am 🙂
  13. Insurance company took them in exchange for Full retail +tax comp. They both worked but due to the detectors getting thrown I decided to turn them in. I will just get a simplex to mess around with until I find a good deal on a ctx or an 800.. Sorry all for replying to everyones posts all at once. Ty all
  14. Hello all.... I recently had my Nox 800 and my V3I destroyed in a vehicle accident. My question is.... Do I wait till next year to buy a detector hoping new "suprise" tech will come out or Just buy a 3030 and call it a day??? Ty in advance
  15. Hello all! I forgot about this post! I have since figured out the 800 in my loamy glacial till! I am in Loda Il. Its on the southwest corner of iroquois county. It took ALOT of tinkering and tests but I am now able to get 10 in on a dime during Ideal conditions. 1st thing I found out was we have alot of ariel plane to ground signals for some reason so can I can only hunt at night. Its the only time I can have a quiet machine. 2. You MUST grid off a 30x30 or whatever size section you want to hunt and do random GB over the grid. I can go from 90 to 15 in 5 foot! Auto isnt fast enought to keep up. 3. I can only hunt when ground is completely dry or soaking wet! No inbetween.. It has to do with the heavy mineral content. In dry soil I get 6 in and soaking wet 10 in. This info is for multi only. Very SLOW swing speed.. I use the beach for land settings and they work perfect! Higher recovery speed doesnt help in this soil for some reason. I have better luck on 2-3 and extremely slowww.. I run sen 20-24... Those old bricks sound like silver dollars! I havent figured out how to beat that besides switching over to 10 custom..I also learned 50 tones. Thats the way to truly beat this soil! The machine tells you everyrhing you need to know on 50... 5 not so much. You also must use head phones. If you dont you WILL miss the little subtle noise thats dif from bricks and minerals. I spent 20 miserable hours in my test garden on 50 tones before I got it. I came from a discovery 3300 almost like yours. Biggest keys are a GB grid, 50 tones, soaking wet or dry soil. I am in Tennessee as we speak and detecting on regular ground is like shooting fish in a barrel compared to home. Stick with the beach to land and learn it.. Forget the machine has all other multi modes. In central Il you are better off using a single freq than using park,field... Gold mode I am starting to see some major promise also but going to play more before giving my approval.. Sorry I dont know the big words but hope that helpsm
