  1. Ok, so it sounds like I've been pinpointing without desensitizing, and this makes the target sound bigger. Are you guys Able to use this tracing to tell a strange shape like can slaw from say a pull tab rectangle, or a ring?
  2. I also remember Clive mentioned the equinox has ratcheting pinpoint? Could someone demonstrate how to do that?
  3. Hey everyone, I've been swinging the equinox since I got it in February, moved up from simplex, and been loving it since, despite a rocky start. I've found a small bit of gold, and been killing it on silver. I bought a couple of Clive James clinick's books. Skill building, and gold jewelry hunters handbook. I found both to be helpful. I am running into a bit of trouble understanding target tracing/pinpointing. When I first get a target I can tell if it's huge by the sound, but for regular targets, in pinpoint, I'm getting better at telling the size, but still having trouble. Everything still sounds largeish. Clive talks about tracing the outline of a target in pinpoint to ",see the shape" but I'm stuck there. Everything is just blob shaped, with no real definition. I've noticed on some YouTube videos when they are showing the response to a target, the sound is super quiet. I'm wondering if I'm just running the volume too high (21 on the machine, and a couple down from Max on headphones. I'm using the equinox ones). Or too high sensitivity (average of 18 in my parks) Could someone make a YouTube demo on target tracing?
  4. Darn, beat me to it. But yeah, if they are gunning for minelab, might as well come out guns blazing. That or eclipse. What's with all the car names? Lol. Can't wait for the nokta GTR
  5. Yeah, in sure lots of parks in other states it's more common. Do they tan or sunbathe near trees, the tennis courts, in the center of the park? The one time I saw it here, the lady was on the edge of a trees shadow.
  6. I know everyone says hit the sun bathing spots in parks, but around here, people don't seem to sunbathe a lot in the parks. Or I just never see it. I saw 1 woman sunbathing in the park near my work 1 time, and found tungsten close by when I came back the next day at lunch. Typically, where in the parks where you're at, do you see people sunbathing?
  7. I decided to go back to a park I haven't spent much time in due to how busy it usually is, and it being in a more upscale neighborhood. So I started detecting just before dark for an hour until the park closed and the mosquitoes started eating me alive. It's ironic because last week, someone asked if I ever find anything good. I said sometimes, but still wanting platinum.lol Ground balance 2 Sensitivity 19 It rang up a solid 12 in 2 sweep directions, and pinpointed as about coin size, with the strong pinpoint sound. I haven't posted a lot of my better from new the last few months, I'll have to add more
  8. Spoke too soon, thanks for the reply. Just got my first tiny woman ring 10k white gold, rang up a scratchy 2-5 one way, and solid 5 the other way.
  9. Just out of curiosity, because I haven't found a thin woman ring like that with the nox, what did it ring up ad? Was it a solid vdi?
  10. Hey everyone, getting excited to go try my first water hunt locally. Would the above hold true for fresh water lake hunting? Shore to around chest deep?
  11. Lol, I sure found it ironic. That and the four leaf clover pendant I found on saint patrick day
  12. Thanks! I had to look them up, at first I thought it meant gold filled. Lol never heard of the guy till now
  13. Thanks! Already went back the next day and started gridding the same area.
