  1. Go figure, it's almost heater weather today down here
  2. A balmy 44° in Geelong...will be hitting the beaches tomorrow when the change comes through....all those lovely ring tabs and bottle tops
  3. I'm also very interested. I've been considering a qed or tdi to use around my land in Bealiba. My girlfriends gold bug2 sounds like morse code meets techno music festival with all the iron and hotrocks
  4. Does this mean it will be up to only us PI owners to do the community a service removing tent pegs, fish hooks, bobby pins, rusty iron thingys....etc?😂
  5. Never realised you could get other coils for the unit. If I hunt at my local beach...trasharama.....old working port but surf coasts are pretty good. Think half my problem is getting carried away with all these videos and forums showcasing all these new, shiny whizzbang machines. Hard to resist especially with the magic word "sale" tacked onto them 🙂
  6. Hi Erik I've half heartedly used the Sea hunter in the goldfields but was more killing time while my partner was using her Gold bug 2. Don't know if you have them in Qld but a certain outdoors chain beginning and ending in A have the Eq600 for A$799 on their website
  7. Thanks Kac and Steve I've already got the Sea Hunter but saw Eq 600 on special near me. I'm in the fortunate position of living near the beach and also having a block of land in the Golden triangle. Got my eye on the qed for the GT but wondering whether to keep the Mk2 and grab a Vanquish for parks, coins etc or sell the Sea hunter and getting the nox to do beach, water, parks etc
  8. Greetings everyone If you take diving depth out of the equation and happy to stick to snorkel depths, what are the pros and cons of the pi Sea Hunter versus something like the Equinox 600 for salt water and beach? Cheers
  9. Oops....sorry Jim, didn't have my glasses on, it was a Jeff Mclendon on a similar recent post. Apologies Jim
  10. Hi Jim Yep, read that article last night, along with reviews and you tube. I'm probably over simplifying things but it seems that the GM1000 is ready to go out the box (with minor tweakings for conditions) but the 24k is a machine that will grow with you as you gain experience? I noticed on another post you mentioned the Orx, another machine I was investigating, any pros or cons compared to the other 2 machines? Cheers
  11. Most of our hunting has been Central Victoria. No gold yet with the GB2 but managing to notice a slight difference in sound between the little iron stones and small lead shot
  12. Thanks Jim, Steve, Simon for all your suggestions. I probably should have mentioned I'm in Australia, would that change your suggestions re our ground conditions? I see the TDI SL is availabe at half the price of the Sdc 2300 here and the 24k is on par with the GM1000 price wise
  13. Thanks for that Phrunt. I think I read on this forum that anything over the 30-40 khz were pretty similiar that's why I was thinking maybe something like the xterra 705 gold or something similar under 20 khz
