  1. I had no idea it came with a carbon fiber lower shaft! Have it assembled and charging the headphones and unit as we speak!
  2. Ahh yeeeeaaaahhh! Looky what I picked up at the post office today!!!!!!!
  3. Erggg, Had a 2007 Jeep Grande Cherokee with 5.7l v8, Quadra Drive 2 with the Eaton lockers on front center and back. When it ran, it ran good but just had to recently scrap it as to many corners they took to cheap out on it, essentially the pressed in valve seats. Had a valve seat drop in to the engine and then bye bye engine... I had a nice hole in one the pistons as verified when i used a bore cam and removed a spark plug, i was not happy.... I could go on with the amount of short cuts they took on the Jeep i had (wheel nuts were hollow with chrome caps that snapped, engine fan hydraulically driven by power steering pump instead of electric fans to power it, etc...). 150k km and jeep was scrapped, un-acceptable. My sister had my old Jeep which was a Jeep Liberty and engine had also died on hers too. Never again will i get a Jeep, got burned on that.
  4. No, Bear spray is a real thing here! It's apparently super strong mace (concentrated capsaicin from peppers). However i don't know if i would trust it, i mean one strong wind gust or how far the bear is from the spray could leave you having a very bad time. I personally would take a good riffle if possible, if you are in remote areas as there are Bears, Wild Cats (Lynx, BobCats, Cougars etc...) and Wolves, charging Moose or Deer, and although all the above is rare, it's still a possibility....
  5. Haha sure! It's pretty much like that for all the provinces in Canada and in my case Quebec! Cheers!
  6. Here where i am the whole province is open to public exploration as long as the land isn't under claim and is not private property. It would be a impossibility to explore all of it in a lifetime so tons of untouched land! This includes areas that are known and have active mining for gold and just by panning 1 or 2 weekends i had found some teeny tiny flakes without knowing the area to well and try some random spots (hope it's not pyrite lol!
  7. Hey there kac, ya no salt water around me in my province (Quebec), only beaches that are all fresh water here! I will definitely try it for fun anyways, just to see!
  8. Ordered my Gold Kruzer today! And now the waiting game lol! Hey PeterInSa, ya i saw that video, as well as a bunch of others on the Gold Kruzer. Looks nice! I also so a video of these dutch coin hunters and the guy was using the Gold Kruzer and was finding coins like crazy, like one after another non stop on the beach with it! After that he went to a park and again finding coins silver earnings etc... Apparently as he said, there's no gold nugget spots in his country, but for some reason he bought a Gold Kruzer? Not sure why, maybe because he was also hoping to find lots of lost jewelry too and choose that model, but i was still impressed as didn't think it would work to well for that! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbNBQW53O5s Hey Kac, ya i don't plan on going in for a full dive under water lol, just small rivers/streams, but if i ever do i'll keep it in mind, thx!
  9. For sure, will do! I'm excited to get it and start having some fun exploring with it! I'll let you guys know when i get it, hopefully soon!
  10. Alright i think i'm pretty much settled on the Nokta Makro Gold Kruzer (61kHz). It will fill the primary role nicely which is gold nugget hunting, it's water proof, comes with 2 coils, and i seen videos of people successfully using it to still dig out coins etc in soil! If after getting really used to the machine, and trying it out for coins/relics and see i'm not happy with it for that role, i can still go on to get a Vanquish to fill that specific role! Payday tomorrow so i think i know what i'm going to get LOL!
  11. Thanks Phrunt and everyone else that responded as well! Much appreciated! And a special thank you to Phrunt and Mxt Sniper (we had chatted quite a bit in messaging), as they gave me tons of info so i'm in a much better informed position to make a decision.
  12. Wow that's impressive! I never thought that the 11" would be able to pick up on those tiny pieces! I think i saw some posts on another thread from you that said that you were quite happy taking out the Vanquish for coin hunting as it was fun and easy and usually chose to take it out over the Equinox 800 most of the time. Is that still the case? Just trying to gauge if i should do the combo detectors or just go all in on the Equinox 800!
  13. In my case the majority of use would be in small rivers and creeks with lots of rocks, and some land as well. I didn't know that the 11" could detect small gold, good to know! I was under the impression i would sooner or later need the 6" to find small gold! Thx for the info! Alright have some time to think about either the Vanquish 440/Gold Kruzer combo or full send with the Equinox 800 lol
  14. Hey Guys, thx for the replies! I've been reading and researching non stop including today for like 6 hours lol! I really like the Equinox 800, downside is with a 6" coil you're looking at $1500cad! I could just get the Equinox 800 then in a couple of weeks get the 6" coil for it, that would be one way. Another way i was also thinking was get the Vanquish 440 ($360cad) and have that as my coin/relic machine and try it out for gold just for fun but plan ahead on getting a dedicated gold detector like the Makro Gold Kruzer (61kHz) ($835) and i would have 2 purpose built machines and still be under $1200, a difference of $300cad between those 2 vs the Equinox 800. Thoughts on this approach? Would it be a good way about it as i would be under $1200 and have 2 purpose specific machines, or $1500 for the Equinox 800? Thanks again for the replies and info!
  15. What are your thoughts on a used Minelab Explorer 2? I have one around me here for sale with 2 coils and it to is multi frequency (1.5 - 100kHz).
