  1. Hey, I just saw your YouTube video. I was wondering, did you notice bubbles coming from the top of the control box? Ive submerged mine, but not for more then a minute or so at a time. I noticed on mine bubbles slowly popping up from the top of the control box. My concern is that this may be a precursor to the device flooding if say, I wanted to have it under water for a prolonged time (which I do) Is this an are bubbles should be emerging from? I'm just not sure, I figured I'd ask if that's something you noticed. I'm sorry your machine drowned! I'd be exceptionally bummed, as mine is
  2. I gotta get some waterproof headphones so I can bring the equinox down. I actually found all four of those in the water! I want to hit the spots the canoes flip
  3. Hahaha, I like that, I had roasted meat tonight 😕. It helped a hole lot with my lack of gold for the day. I have a great time wading through the water anyhow!
  4. I had never even heard of it! I thought PD950 was some type of European Hallmark for gold or silver. It's a neat metal, and beautiful to boot.
  5. My boys are 4 and 5. I tried letting them use my old Bounty Hunter Tracker VI but they a still a tad short lol. They will definitely be coming with me when they get a little taller. They already want to. Im trying to get my wife on board. Fingers crossed
  6. I will definitely post anything else I find. I just purchased a digital scale online to get an idea of the weight. The pallidium ring was definitely for a large man. It did give a little confidence boost, but even more so, unbridled joy.
  7. It was thrilling! I'm glad you liked the story, I enjoyed writing it. Now to remind myself that's not the norm lol
  8. Ya, lol shes itching for a nice lady ring. I was surprised they were all men's rings.
  9. I took my wife, and two young boys to the river for a couple hours this morning. I figured I'd bring my Detector, and get a couple hours of hunting in while the kids played. I have been hunting the rivers all week long. I possibly put in close to 30 hours, with very little success. I am learning the machine with each swing though. I was hunting in Park 2, knee deep in the water, a spillway at my back, and open river in front of me, with a strong current. My settings were default, except the Iron Bias was switched to F2 giving it a value of 6 automatically. I went with 50 tones, and p
  10. Excellent, thanks, I have to start searching on the forum, before posting a thread that may have already been discussed. There is a gold mine of info contained here!
  11. Mineralisation here is definitely a thing. I have to remember we do deal with alot of it in Sonoma County, CA. I appreciate the feedback. Thank you
  12. Hey, thanks for the reply I actually tried both, but I spent the majority of the time in FE. I do keep it pretty low, and a friend actually told me there is a good deal of mineralization here in Northern California, which could be part of what I was experiencing. I resorted to simply digging the target, grunt or not, just to be sure. I would definitely like to know for certain what causes it, so I can better understand, well, everything really.
  13. Hey, I appreciate the input. I lowered the Iron Bias, because I didn't want to run the risk of the Iron Bias masking nearby non ferrous items. I usually go 1 or 2, because I did notice I was digging some nails and rusty metal flakes on zero. I'm a novice, with less then a year under my belt. I may be overthinking it, but I can't stand the thought of going over a good item, because the iron bias is masking it. Frankly, I'm still putting the pieces together from 6 months of reading, and detecting like crazy, so I have alot of info swirling around that I'm not 100% on, as I simply don't have the
  14. Hey folks, I noticed today, while doing a 7 hour river hunt (Fresh Water), in Northern California (Wine Country), that almost all my targets would give an iron grunt as the coil passed off the target. I thought perhaps there was small iron nearby the target, so I replaced the target (100 yen coin) in a clean spot and swept back and forth, receiving a small grunt here and there. I had been hunting in Beach 1 All Metal Mode for the day. I did this so that I could check to see if I had a bear cap, or pull tab by swinging over then pulling off the target to reveal the Iron (So
  15. I completely forgot I had posted that question. When I posted it, I didn't even know there was an F2 option. I was watching a YouTube video in which I saw Thanks for the info, I had completely forgotten that I asked about Iron Bias. Sorry about that. I actually just found out the F2 setting even existed. I was watching a YouTube video, and saw a guy hit the accept/reject button, to switch from FE to F2, which was what prompted me to ask this similar question, as to what the difference was between the two iron bias settings. I definitely appreciate the input, and I'll t
