  1. Yesterday, I spoke to a guy who helped me decide on purchasing my Deus II in August. He asked me if I'd tried the Relic program on the beach? I hadn't but gave it a quick test and it was much different than I was used to with my normal Beach setting. He said it is now the only program he uses in the saltwater sand of eastern North Carolina. He showed me a nice silver necklace he found that day. I wonder if this is something to test further or if any of you have used this with success?
  2. I'd like to know how to change them over, I have an extra pair of Grey Ghost CTX
  3. It was a certain let down after the initial introduction and I feel a lot of trust was lost with The Fisher company. Meanwhile, I'm surprised other companies haven't tried to capitalize on the idea of a better discriminating PI machine.
  4. I am curious as what response it would give a different depths and if the chain is laid out straight.
  5. Thank you for saving all dug up targets. It gives us without an idea of what to expect. Of course All Metal will produce just that! I read earlier it will not pick up very small items. ...say a ear ring stud. Yes or no?
  6. Oh MY! A few weeks ago I pocketed 50 bottle caps from surface and Equinox. I was digging all signals. Thank you for cleaning up whatever area you hunted! After seeing this, I agree with Joe that the water and early winter is the spot for the AQ
  7. I am guessing the next logical shipment of the next AQ or 2 will go to Florida. ...if not there already.
  8. After I asked the depth question to Joe, I realized it was intended for the control box. I typed before thinking...again.
  9. My Plans? Beach nourishment has been recently completed to almost all local ocean side beaches within the past 4 years. Aside from fresh drops, the unsettled sand allows heavy targets to sink fast. The waves on most days give me a beating if I try to venture out. So with the AQ, I plan to hunt the shallow water and hit a few swimming holes within the Intracoastal Waterway. Sting Ray a.k.a. Ferrous Grump
  10. Thank you for once again sharing the AQ in action! Question: It appears you are taking the machine deeper than the 3 foot depth limit. Am I wrong or did you make an adjustment that I did not read in another post?
  11. That is certainly good to know while detecting close to today's sun worshipers! My CTX will sound off when lightening is near.
  12. Thank you ALEXANDRE TARTAR for taking the time to demonstrate both good and bad targets. So silver & gold necklace laying straight will certainly give a different tone from an iron wire. I realize a copper wire will give off a strong non-ferrous tone. I look forward to more questionable targets such as bottlecap, pulltabs and lead. Again, I would expect they will force me to dig to positively identify.
  13. I want everyone to know about the great service & advice I have received from Steve's Detector Rods! Yes there are other replacement rod companies out there but I can tell you that "steveg" stands by his product 100%. I had an issue with one of his older shafts. The bolt started to rust. As soon as Steve found out, he ordered a higher grade stainless and sent me one free of charge! On my couter-weighted Equinox shaft, I dropped it and busted the counter-weight off and Steve as soon as I contacted Steve about purchasing a replacement, he sent it out that day! He is very easy to communicate issues or questions and I can't say enough good things for how he has helped me out!
