  1. Took me 11 years hunting a small grassy resting spot from the 1870’s to find my first and only gold nugget 5.1 gram with the Deus2 at 6-7 inches deep. The closest mines are in Coarsegold California.
  2. At the end of the video he said Tarsacci has a lot of problems. Anybody know what they are?
  3. Tried that didn’t work. I’m sure dimitar knows about these kind of tests, if there was a way to see past the heavy thick blacksand he would have said something. Dimitar made a coil specifically for blacksand it’s supposed to be better than stock coil but I don’t think it will pass the heavy thick blacksand.
  4. Tried that. Didn’t work in the test with 1 inch concentrated blacksand. Tarsacci Couldn’t see nickel on top of below blacksand. D2 will hit on the nickel with ID. Even with blacksand accepted on the D2 it will still hit on the nickel with ID.
  5. The tarsacci failed to pickup the nickel under the blacksand. I’ve tried everything on the tarsacci to get it to work.
  6. I did a blacksand test like the guy on YouTube with a Ziplock bag of blacksand 1 inch thick from the gold mines in Northern California. Deus2 was able to see the nickel below loud and clear in stock beach P program. The Tarsacci with blacksand mode on, 18khz, ground balanced, mixed mode. Tarsacci could not see the nickel. This isn’t a real world test but shows the capability of the Deus2
  7. Save up and buy the axiom. ATX is too heavy for all day hunting.
  8. How inexpensive is gold in Oman? It’s 746 an ounce in Omanian Rial currency that equals $1937 an ounce here in the US.
  9. Does anyone insure their gold when sending to a refinery? I read in the fine print that USPS will ask for a reciept for items that are lost. I don’t have a receipt for gold I find. So I just mail smaller amounts so I don’t loose it all. I use ARA in Texas faster turn around than Midwest for me.
  10. You don’t need a book. The best info is from hunters on forums.
  11. The tarsacci was a good machine when I first got it hunting the sandy river but not as good at parks. For the next 2 years I didn’t do well with it. I picked up the D2 in March 2022 and the tarsacci found its way to the closet. One thing that left a sour taste in my mouth was I originally bought the tarsacci from Tom Dankowski in Florida to save on taxes here in California that upsetted Dimitar because I didn’t buy from a trans-bay detectors in California. When I received my credit card statement it said Trans-bay detectors. I DIDN’T give authorization to do so. I would never buy from Dimitar again. When Dimitar releases his next detector I hope he does more testing before he releases it. He also needs to chime in when there is a question. Don’t expect others to answer for you.
  12. I’m still on V06. I have no way of updating as I do not have a laptop computer. Maybe that’s a good thing as I hear of some issues with the updates.
  13. Thanks for the tip but I think I will leave it as is. I may put the tarsacci up for sale as I have not been using it ever since I bought the D2.
  14. Pitch is great in square tones. Way better than in PWM. I use pitch almost 100% of the time. Never was comfortable using full tones.
  15. History and location of this old park is what kept me thinking there may be a nugget hiding. After 10+ years of hunting this park I finally found one. May be more.
  16. Here’s my first and only gold nugget I’ve dug up 5.1g from a city park in central California earlier this year.
  17. Nice. Where I water hunt people take off their gold jewelry before going into the water ever since gold shot up in price. Tot-lots are also slow on gold jewelry. Hope things change.
  18. Foreign competition taking over. What’s keeping Garrett in business is the security products it sells.
  19. Yes. Also I hear music coming through the headphones while using the tarsacci at the park. It’s just a whisper doesn’t bother me. There are a few radio stations near by. No way to correct this issue. My friends tarsacci does the same. May be the end for tarsacci.
  20. I checked the contracts and they were ok. The tarsacci would sometimes reset itself when going over large metal while hunting a dried trashy river. When I got the machine back from Dimitar it reset itself again while hunting a old settlement when going over a target. Was thinking about selling but decided to hold on to it as a backup.
  21. I would love to see a video between Deus2 and tarsacci in heavy blacksand.
  22. Tarsacci goes deep but audio is terrible. Once had a issue where I could not turn off machine and had issues with machine resetting itself. Sent back to Dimitar to get it checked. He said he found nothing wrong. Machine still reset itself on one occasion when I got it back. Not worth the $1500 price I paid. I now use the Deus2 and finding more success with it compared to tarsacci which started out great but faded fast. Yes, XP Deus2, legend and Manticore will slow sales of Tarsacci.
