  1. So I decided to purchase a used SDC 2300 that was posted here on the website from Fort Bedford as I have heard and read many good things about this detector. I received the detector yesterday. This morning I decided to go to the local volleyball court in my neighborhood and just dig all of the signals and see how it reacted to a location that I have detected many times with my Original Tesoro Lobo. This machine is too simple to use that you almost think you are missing something until you hit a target and dig. I only stayed about an hour and only got about a 1/3rd of the court done before the humidity and heat came on. I concentrated on a slow swing overlapping the coil on each pass. Below are photos of my finds, 52 cents, tiny bits of wire / junk and my first gold (urban nugget / clasp .5 g) with the SDC 2300. I will soon venture up north in the prescott area to detect a little and see if I can find a real in the wild nugget! Have a great weekend! Jimmy

  5. Spring Cleaning the Garage! I have a used Gold Buddy Mini Recirculating Sluice that is compact and can be stored and used in the same bucket. I also have many other items that go with it. Below is the list of items and photos. If you have any questions or would like to see it in person, I live in Goodyear, Arizona. I am willing to ship but it would be at the expense of the buyer and I would not know how much that would be. I would like to get $300.00 OBO for it all. I also have some prospecting books that I will also toss in and any other small items I have prospecting related. I can email or text additional photos if needed.

    XP Deus Versions & Coils Question

    Just read this post on another forum, "I talked to a very reliable source across the pond and the plan is the update will be released september 18 at the rally . The software update,the coil and the pin pointer will all be released. The twin box hoard locater will be early next year. You have the inside scoop!" I think I might wait, I am ready to buy a Deus. I like Steve's post above and feel that 10 and 20 kHz will work good for coin and jewlery and I can also use it prospecting. Ill wait for a few to see if it is true and will start out with the new coil. JR

    Learning My GPX 5000

    Steve, AuWanderer, Thanks for the reply and information. It was fun to use the 5000 such a great detector and so many options and settings to learn. Next time, I am going to take the 11" mono with me also and try it to see the differences along with using no discrimination. I am sure that depending on the ground, trash and iron infested sites the DD with a some discrimination is helpful but more remote areas the mono or no discrimination would be best and dig it all. I can't wait to post my first nugget! Thanks again! Jimmy
  13. Although no gold, I really enjoyed playing with my new GPX 5000 for a couple of hours. Not belonging to a club yet, I went to Lynx Creek just to get familiar with it in hot ground. Tried the Double D 11" coil to play with the discrimination feature. Set it at 3 and then 5 and still got a few rusty iron pieces but not many (Lynx creek is a very trashy area). I feel the discrimination worked really well for a PI. Had a great time, I am addicted to this machine and cant wait to join a club to go out in a more remote area. Here are a couple of photos of what I found. Many were just whispers when I began so I am sure the detector is working perfect just need to get it over some gold!
