  1. Ok, thanks guys, I'll m going to keep messing with this detuning untill I get it to work for me. Next up I need to work on the wriggle method, as I think it will help with something I think I figured out about why minelab added 4khz
  2. Thanks for all the tips guys, been trying some of them for the last few hunts. Still having trouble on the tiny targets. Equinox will find everything great, center great in pinpoint, then can't find it with my pulsedive. By the way, Im still thinking some of my issue with sizing objects is a volume issue. I'm running the equinox headphones about 2 steps down from Max if quiet environment, equinox volume at 18. Everything still sounds big and loud. How do you guys set up the volume?
  3. 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?
  4. I also remember Clive mentioned the equinox has ratcheting pinpoint? Could someone demonstrate how to do that?
  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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?
  13. Lol, I sure found it ironic. That and the four leaf clover pendant I found on saint patrick day
  14. Thanks! I had to look them up, at first I thought it meant gold filled. Lol never heard of the guy till now
  15. Thanks! Already went back the next day and started gridding the same area.
  16. I haven't had a lot of time to post lately because work has been picking up, so I added some pictures of my favorite of my better finds. So in my town there was a water main break last Friday and it shut down one of the main thoroughfare through town. I took the detour Saturday, and realized it took me past a park I had only detected once with the simplex. I hated this park because of intense emi, and few signals. There is no baseball backstop, no playground, no soccer goal, but every time I've driven past or stopped to watch, there has been someone throwing a ball for their dog. All week I have been wondering how the new equinox would do there. After work, I stopped by and started working in the area where I seen the dog owners stand. Found a bunch of change, a bunch of pull tabs, but on the 12th to 15th signal I got a solid 17 that just sounded too good to pass up. I started digging thinking it was a bottle cap, and ok it popped the 14k ring. Very next signal 10 feet away was the 925 horse ring. It came in at 28-29 and I was thinking quarter the whole time. All the other finds have been since getting the equinox early February.
  17. Yeah, the only thing Im discriminating now is 1 and bellow. I know there's micro gold there, but otherwise I spend all my time digging balls of hershey kiss foil. I'll have to double check my settings. Some pull tabs sound weak in one direction, but my gold tester ring still sounds really good. Also, in all metal mode the pull tabs go back to sounding like the gold ring. As for bottle caps, I've been finding some that ring up 10-11, but like someone here mentioned, switching to 5khz makes them hit at 32 or so
  18. The reason I ask is I just got an eqx 800 a month ago, and was fiddling with a couple settings. After I was messing with one of the iron bias settings, I noticed some pull tabs give a weak one way signal.
  19. Hey everyone. I've been detecting for a while now, but have for the most part stayed close to home. I noticed some posters call all beer caps crown caps, and some refer to square pull tabs. All that trash looks the same in my neck of the woods. Is there a primer on the difference between them?
  20. Ah, was worried that was the case. I love the pulsedive, and know it will come in handy if I ever make it to a real beach.
  21. Hey everyone! I just upgraded to a nox 800 at the start of the month, moving over from a simplex and pulsedive. I was having trouble getting used to the nox at first and was thinking of sending it back because I couldn't even detect in tot lots. Thanks to some posts on here, it's going a lot smoother. My question is this, is there a way to pair the pulsedive with the equinox headphones?
  22. Chucky cheeses. Where a kid can be a kid. Used to be a pizza place back in the late 90's that had arcade games and prizes.
