  1. The ash handles like Steve H. used are fairly cheap at HD! About 15-20 bucks last I checked! I triple lacquered mine before mounting to my T-Rex! Going on 5 years and still holding up well! One day I will cave for one of Steve G's carbon fiber handles! Probably the two piece, so I can store easily!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  2. Gary, That's exactly the same scenario I have to deal with to hunt the Treasure Coast! Wait for the right conditions, drive about a hundred miles, and try and hit the tide right, hope I pick the right beach, and compete with all the locals for missed items! Very tough to hit it right! But I've met some great hunters there, and I don't feel as much of an outsider as I used to, now that some of the faces are familiar! Good luck to you hitting it right!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  3. Whopper of a day! Your good for March already! I need that type of beach near me! You definitely were in the ring range with all those nickles! Great job! When the soreness goes away, you will have to hit it again!!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  4. Hello Coot, Those two detectors should get you quite a bit! Happy your back at it! Show us some of the "killer" stuff you've been saving from a dirt nap!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  5. Welcome Chuck, Well, you've already been learning the harder of the two; PI's! So the Equinox, which can have a bit of a learning curve, should be a little easier on you! Tons of info on the forum about it! We will be expecting some very well written posts, and artistically photographed finds from you!😁 Glad you found your way here! Good luck!!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  6. Give us a couple of close-ups of the ring! Look's old! You said no 14k mark, but how about a maker's mark? A jeweler can confirm! Great job on a faint signal!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  7. Kac, Looks like we are on the same frequency here!!πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ‘πŸ‘
  8. Old wiped silver is still better than clad! I'll take any you want to throw out!πŸ˜‚ Nice finds! Got to be more there!!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  9. Hello EW, Happy you made your way here! How long have you been diggin the dirt, and what are you swinging? Haven't been to Illinois, but have been seeing some great stuff found there! Lots of history! Good luck!! Keep us posted!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  10. Hey pdunc, Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you are off to a good "restart"! Glad your back! And cool that you are near rvpopeye for a possible hunt! Also good that you will have your shot soon! I have to wait awhile for mine due to being in my 50's! You have time to read up and test your 600 before you hit the beach, and the preset programs find's stuff just fine! Good luck and keep us posted!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  11. Welcome Scarfoot, Happy to see you add to the experience level of the forum! I hope your name doesn't imply a misplaced shovel or pick, while digging targets!β›πŸ˜΅ Give us an idea of what kind of areas you hunt and what you swing! And what RR said above, show us some finds! Many of us love the visuals! πŸ‘πŸ‘
  12. Agree Dew, Tony's are hand built to customer's specs and I think they are well worth having! He is very responsive to the build! But they are not the cheapest around if that's the main concern!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  13. Laughter keeps you healthy and alive longer to hunt for more gold!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  14. Now that is instant gratification at it's best! Problem solved!πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ‘
  15. Tremendous amount of digging! Delicate flower my butt! Good job! And yeah, beachgoers would be well advised to wear beach shoes! Broken glass, syringes, rusty nails and screws, sharp aluminum, man-o-war jellyfish! No box jellyfish thankfully! Very hazardous! F350, somewhere on the forum is a great deal of info on scoops! But I would only buy a good gauge of stainless steel! Depending how much beach and water hunting you do, is directly tied to how durable the scoop should be, and how much you are willing to spend!πŸ‘πŸ‘
