  1. I am very happy with my purchase from Steveg! I'm still testing out the counterweights but I can say the last time I was at the beach, I hunted 2 hours longer than usual and didn't suffer any shoulder pain I usually feel after a days hunt on the beach!
  2. After watching this, I will no longer complain about digging through clam shells and hard packed sand on my beach hunts! As mentioned earlier, If I knew it was gold (or something really valuable) I would dig as long as I could!
  3. Same here. I've used them 2 times now and they synced with my EQX right away. Extra ear size adapters are provided.
  4. Thank you. You actually gave me an idea of what to try when you mentioned the Tesoro & hip mount. I have the Tesoro Sand Shark. I could let him use this with the hip mount and hopefully this will work for him!
  5. Actually Mitchel, the GoFinds were my 1st thought. I just don't know how well they would handle the Salt water interference. He would not be getting the whole unit wet but, I would for him to use his MD in the wet sand. As far as fun, the 1st place we went was a trashy beach. he still managed some coins. The next day, we went to a section of beach that had a machine gun nest during WWII. He found some 30 & 50mm bullets and was stoked! Next time, I may "seed" the beach with a ring I've found so he can discover it and be hooked like the rest of us! S. Ray
  6. Thank you for replying. No. I have read where the 6" helps on weight and more importantly pinpointing for new users. Thanks for the second reply. I'll check the weights of the database machines. I just don't want to buy one that will go crazy down by the saltwater.
  7. For the last 3 days I have been taking a friend's grandson detecting along the Atlantic ocean. He is 11 and was having some difficulty using my Minelab Equinox. It was my lightest detector. He seems really excited to hunt but I can tell the swinging and the digging in wet sand is a bit too much for him. Is there any lighter, cheaper detectors that will still perform well along the surf? He only goes in ankle deep water and mostly hunts the wet & dry sand. Thank you.
  8. I'm thinking maybe the position of the ring when it was found was the reason for the lower signal. You say she saw it in your scoop so I assume you found this in sand. possibly the heavy end of the ring was facing down creating a smaller target.
