  1. Always love to hear about good stories and finds Chuck! Especially over a long hobby "career" like yours! They deserve their own posts!!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  2. Nice stuff Chuck, You should share more often!πŸ€πŸ‘πŸ‘
  3. Present, and accounted for!! JIC!!πŸ€πŸ‘πŸ‘
  4. Seriously though, A detector with the ability to swing fast, and still capture targets, is one of my main requirements for beach hunting! Low and slow is fine, once you get to where the targets begin to group, but you have to locate those areas first! And that generally requires a fair amount of walking, as some of the best spots are not close to parking areas!! Reading the constantly changing conditions is part of that! The Nox, and a several others do that quite nicely! And I'm sure the "Core" will too! Swing speed is not the main problem i see of other's detecting! It's the massive "Golf" swing that is a target killer!! Having the coil at swing apex, twelve inches or more, off the deck, is a big no-no! But I see it all the time, and it just means more possible targets for me!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  5. I like my doughnuts extra smokey!!πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘
  6. I'd definitely be onboard for a PI like that too!! And l have reached near critical mass on detectors, so.... πŸ‘ As for the turkey problem, that's unfortunate!πŸ˜” But you can always grow your own! Just don't get too attached, come "chopping" time!! Besides, KFC is a universally approved substitute!!πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘
  7. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ Forgive me Simon, if I don't believe this statement! But thanks for a good laugh! Does the quote" When hell freezes over" need to be applied here?? Time will tell!! Love ya man! Happy Thanksgiving!!πŸ¦ƒπŸ‘πŸ‘
  8. Glad to see you up and back detecting Jeff! Didn't want to see you grow roots in the recliner! Looks like you have a better class of "losers" there, than at my beaches! Keep at it!!πŸ€πŸ‘πŸ‘
  9. I prefer the "Footlong" curved tip myself! Even had him leave my handle a little more blocky, for my hand! And beautiful burl wood handle!! But he will make whatever your preference!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  10. Definitely agree! One of several things I find irksome about the machines they produce, is listening to what customers want! While I realize their dedicated gold detectors are aimed at a specific audience, they appear to be resistant to change on their more general detector users!! Hopefully they get a clue, sooner than they did with the Equinox, and pay closer attention! Especially with others nipping at their heals at this point; and for less of an investment!!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  11. Been a shaft adapter on Ebay for awhile! Still a bit awkward though, with the handle protruding off the rear, but usable i suppose! The coil being fixed, and unable to pivot, precludes much else! Now, if the shaft were in between the coil, and the handle, it may be more functional! But the shaft mount would have to contain a pivot and a socket at the coil end, and a socket at the handle end! That would be alot of engineering, to turn it into something it was never intended to be! An adapter for the screw-on-end cap, may be another option! Either might be a challenging DIY project for some off-season fun!! πŸ‘πŸ‘
  12. I'd check with Chase on what concoction to soak in, since he is very familiar with the types of stuff you find, and soil conditions there!! I would say less is more! Weakest mix first, whatever you use! And value of found object to you "as is", to risk a harsher result!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  13. Nice day out Bob, Glad your fields continue to produce!! Wish I could say the same for our beaches! Thought the hurricane would kick up some good stuff on the beachs here, but only if I wanted to open a lumber and hardware, beach Tiki Hut!!🀣 πŸ€πŸ‘πŸ‘
  14. As always, I'll let you "early adopters" bring any shiny new machines, back to earth, with real usage! And work out the bugs!! Rare that the hype measures up to reality-based usage!! But somebody's gotta start the party!!πŸŽ‰ Good luck to you early birds!!πŸ€πŸ‘πŸ‘
