  1. Yea sir. That ring is as shiny and clean as they come. The designs are real nice.
  2. I haven’t had it checked yet. After this weekend I’ll know better.
  3. Found this pretty 10K the other day in the water. There was also a heavy (19 gram) tungsten ring etched with deer foot prints, a buck, a fish and a fish hook.
  4. Nice assortment of rings! The gold is the cream on top.
  5. Nice haul on the rings! I can't remember the last time there were too many targets on our beaches in SW Florida. Been hard to find too much of anything, although I did pull out a nice gold ring the other day.
  6. It’s always a pleasure Joe to hear your stories and share the views of your finds. I’m amazed as usual at what is still there to be found. Happy Fall!
  7. No problem with silver for me either. Found these two small silver rings the other day. It hit hard on them. The chain is junk.
  8. I like your picture of the Stealth. Looks like one knob and one button. Nice!
  9. CJC. Exactly what setting are you turning up? I’ve had a couple of instances with the volume knob not responding as it was turned up. It was corrected by FT.
  10. About a year ago I was water hunting and the Nox pod separated completely from the 4 bolts. When it happened all I had was the one main control pod in my hand. Sent it into ML under warranty and they asked if the rod I was using was original or an aftermarket. I knew exactly where this could go and I told them it was aftermarket. They thought that I overtightened it and not being the original shaft warranty was not covered. I explained there was a lot of corrosion on the bolts and the torque on the unit being used 90% of the time in salt water, caused the problem. I think by being honest with them about the shaft, they said OK and replaced the complete pod. Everything has been good.
  11. The underside of the turtle is stamped 925 as well as the clasp on the chain. Such a fun hobby. Every scoop is like a Christmas package. You never know what is in it until you open it up. Lol
  12. First picture is a 9 gram 14K white gold band and a junk ring. Second picture is a cool little .925 turtle with chain and a .925 stud. The turtles back looks like blue opals, probably lab created. Everything was found in the water. These were found on two different hunts. Thanks for looking!
  13. Congratulations on your first platinum. It’s always a thrill to find one.
  14. 310 grams! Wow that’s a lot of gold. I’ve had that happen nugget prospecting years ago but never jewelry hunting.
  15. Here are a few pictures of some finds for June. I found other loads of junk rings, coins, etc. and other silver not pictured. These are the nicer ones. The solid chain is .925 and weighs 36.8 grams. A heavily worn signet ring, 14k, 6 grams... A tiny 10k with 3 stones, not diamonds and a hefty 11.8 gram platinum. All found in the water at various depths.
  16. That's a nice looking job that sure won't snap on you. And a little extra weight on the coil wouldn't hurt. When I'm digging a target, with the slight buoyancy of the coil, I have to keep my toes on the edge of the coil to keep it from floating up. Time to start selling 5.5 inch pieces of CF. 😁
  17. Yes I agree! I too can skim the wet sand like a surfboard with the AQ. My previous replies are based "exclusively in the saltwater".
  18. If the coil is "on" the ground how would you move it side to side? It has to be elevated somewhat in order to move it side to side unless you scrub the coil against the ground without ever lifting it. By keeping a constant distance between the bottom of the coil and the ground you achieve optimum results.
  19. I’ve used the big coil in 2 different brackish water locations in Florida and comfortably run the delay 7.5 to 8. Very minimal falsing. Should be a killer in fresh water. I did play around and lower the sensitivity a little today. Worked fine.
