  1. I found some more information about Vanquish, doesn't look like it will beat a GPX-4500
  2. Hello everyone, i just bought a F-Pulse and want to share some important findings. Alkaline AA (Panasonic Platinum Power) = Sens-3, works perfect. Lithium AA (Energizer Lithium Ultimate) = Sens-3, noisy on everything even holding in mid air. Hope this helps someone because i've been reading about people thinking there pointer is broken.

  4. Hello again everyone, I've been sitting here waiting for September and I accidentally bought a Goldmonster 1000 I figured a Secondary machine couldn't hurt and will be useful.
  5. Here's a interesting read. If this asteroid crashed on Earth, it could make everyone a billionaire and collapse the Earth's economy. Crazy! https://www.foxnews.com/science/nasa-headed-towards-giant-golden-asteroid-that-could-make-everyone-on-earth-a-billionaire
  6. Hello! Everyone! I'm back from my first site(s). The Hayden claim site indeed did have way too many hot rocks. I had a crash course in learning my detector lol. Got there about 6pm and wasn't hot at all about 97f. First thing i want to say i felt like i was in heavan! i wanted to scan everything and do it now! lol but in reality I only stayed near the car and only dug 3 holes...depressing i know but the first item i found was a 1980 penny at 3 inches! i was so happy!! lol. Next two holes i dug i found a 9mm casing in each hole. I left the site at 8pm. The next day (Sun) i left at 12pm for another claim site in Bumble Bee. Lol yes i was hungry for more! Sadly I only dug one hole and found another 9mm casing at 4in. Had to leave early because it was way too hot and I didn't bring enough water. I didn't account for the effort it took to actually walk up hills and actually get to the site which was 2400 ft walk from the car. A huge lesson i have learned, google map's satellite view is very deceiving about hills and mountain height's. I can't wait to go back to Bumble Bee in October. (sorry about the last pic it came from a screenshot from a video)
  7. Excellent thanks guys :) I might just keep it, it's actually useful! I just used it to find studs in the wall to hang a tv. lol :)
  8. Thanks Andyy, I'm most likely going to wait the summer out until end of October.
  9. Thanks Andyy, I was planning on going in the night time, maybe i should wait it out. I have a question, I got a minelab pro-find 15. Should i return it ? I haven't seen anyone else use these for some reason.
  10. Thanks beatup I used landmatters to get some interesting information. I took two screenshots. The purple box is claims from my club. The picture in my initial post was taken from here From what i'm seeing it looks like i might be in good shape for my first hunt
  11. Hello everyone. I'm new here and have been studying about this new hobby for a month or so. Yesterday i ordered/received my first ever detector the Equinox 800 and added the 6 in. coil. (i'm targeting Gold) I've lived in AZ all my life and currently live in Queen Creek. I'm looking to make my first hunt near Hayden, AZ, 75 miles SE of my home location. I also joined a prospecting club, The Roadrunner's Prospector's Club. My first hunt site will be on a RRPC claim. RRPC has 31 claims in this area. Below is a aerial view of what their claim areas look like. I'm hoping to head out there in a few weeks, It's going to be HOT!
  12. Thank you Steve, i'm happy to be here :)
  13. In the video you can actually see for a split second what the detector possibly looks like, well...lower left of it anyway. "Orange/Red plastic"
  14. Hello everyone :) I'm just starting out in this hobby and i will be receiving my very first detector today. I bought the Equinox 800 a few days ago. I also joined the RRPC today as well. Thank you Steve Herschbach, Your information is very helpful thank you :)
