  1. Yes they can. As in somebody "Go find a Manticore".
  2. There is a new secretive name change to be announced for the U.S edition very soon. It will be called the "Phranticore". For all of the chaos it has caused.
  3. I called it 3 months ago. I said it won't be out till next year. No where near their end of November time frame. The reason ? The track records of these propagandist clowns. And it's not defined strictly by ML. Maybe someday these wokesters will awaken and go old school. Have real , known , seasoned , confirmed hardcore hunters performing unbiased testing. Having the product finished AND ready for release. Only then , splash your marketing campaign and taking orders for maybe 2-3 weeks. Directly into consumers hands immediately afterwords. A surefire way to backup your talk and gain customer trust.
  4. You were on the wrong beach for gold this time. A few areas are producing from this swell. I personally use air tags , they work good. But yes , dump that thing b4 you get home.
  5. Great story and return. I'm sure you would have turned it down but with an estate like that , did she at least offer you a measly $5k ?
  6. My "that's mine" story doesn't get any better than this. Found 3 wallets on the beach over a year ago on different beaches. All loaded with $ and cards. 1 of them I drove by the address on my way home that morning. Guy answered and said no one lives here by that name. Finally tracked him down and he said keep the cash and return everything else. There was over a $1000 in it. The other 2 I believe I found on FB. Left messages for both , no response. Only recently did I tear everything up except the cash , very strange.
  7. Here in So.Cal , there are several million people. And I can tell you every unemployed male under the age of 45 has a metal detector. And they are all out on the beach trying to scratch a buck. I haven't counted , but it is alot out there.....
  8. Why don't you just send a buddy $2k US cash and have them ship you one ? You save $1,100 and your buddy makes a couple hundred. I will more than likely get one with a military discount for $1360. Not bad , but still alot more than the Nox.
  9. All this talk about power is really just that : talk , until it's out and we get to use it. But a full charge takes 7 hours in this day and age ? That is disgusting. Call me ridiculous , paranoid or whack. Here's all I know. In California , our great governor in this crazy heat has told us to not charge our EVs and 1 week prior said in the next decade no more new gas vehicles will be produced or sold. Also to turn up our thermostats as in don't run the A/C because it will cripple the power grid and cause blackouts. More insanity from these people. And all I can think of is why no one has made a solar powered detector yet. Lol
  10. I had similar scenarios, except all I remember was going home with both girls.
  11. Don't know how many pounds of gold or all the coins found over the years , never really kept track. That's besides the point now. It has always been a fun hobby to me and it's nice to be rewarded some. Though over the last few years with everything going through the roof , I need to rethink it some. I have always been able to payoff my detector within a month or two. But as of recent hunts and others who hunt where I'm at , I have to wonder. How long is it going to take me to payoff a $1500 detector and $5 gas ? It's no longer a $600 machine and $2 gas. The bottomline is I'm still using my Pulse and not exactly killing it. The gold isn't there. And it's not just me. People don't wear gold like they used to. Nor do they carry change as much either. Add in the fact there are more hunters than ever before. The biggest I feel is the lack of consistent storms/conditions that prevail for my style of hunting. Many things I have no control over. Anyways , it's still a hobby and that's my dilemma...
  12. How about Treasure Nymph or Gold Nympho. The insatiable lust for treasure !
  13. I would really like to see a picture of who the final decision maker was on this name. Could he look like this.....
  14. Are you serious ? Eddie Freaking Van Halen ! My favorite guitar hero of all time. Seen many times way back....RIP
  15. Here is what I know about this detector. Or shall I say what I don't know because I wasn't actually there. About 4 years ago here in So.Cal either a representative or the owner ( I could find out) met with 3 of my detecting friends on a local beach. One in particular had been seriously interested in buying one for awile. This beach has a ton of trash and is what I would call medium blacksand. Well , this guy couldn't for the life of him get it to work properly at all. After 20 minutes of everyone tinkering with it to get it to work , they gave up. My friends grabbed their machines and hunted. This poor guy apologized an hour later and everyone left. My friend said after that he would never buy one and that was enough for me...
  16. I would think from a marketing/sales standpoint this would be available sometime in November to meet the xmas rush. Anytime after that sales would lag for several months. Strike while the iron is hot !
  17. I would have to agree with this assessment. It reminded me of being in a strip club. The girl up on stage twirling on a pole. Then walking down the ramp , arms high in the air. Then into the crowd of sweaty men for them grab on to. Never long enough for 1 guy to actually get a good look at. ML could have done better but my guess is she will go full nude before long and we will have more details.
  18. I was finding some clad and silver , but it was hard work. Until I figured out that only 3 blocks away , our liquor store in the alley way was stacking their crates of coke bottles up against the chain link fence. And I could slide my puny hands in and slide them out for a quick return. Until I got busted and was off for another adventure ! 🤣
  19. Mine was a lighter blue coin master , 1970. Don't remember anything else except as an 8 year old , using 2 hands to swing the darn thing. Not deep and the holes were a mess. That didn't last long. Until the early 80s when I took a more serious approach. But you are right about the small incremental changes. But we all lose that perspective and want everything NOW. Thanks Steve for giving us a little reality check.
  20. Ok. I don't come on here all that much , so I don't know your feelings about ML. But to a certain extent , you are right. But there are small little bumps in improvements across all brands I think. And I'm following this one after getting rid of 3 Nox's , for 3 different reasons. I been hunting So.Cal beaches for decades and have used quite a few detectors. Primarily old Whites PI's. This new machine has some vast improvements over the prior Nox which I do believe they should have stood behind better on its faults. But here we are. I hunt many beaches that the Nox fails on. Maybe this will be a vast improvement to be able to handle heavy black mineralized sand and EMI. This is the biggie. But in a sick way , I hope it doesn't. Because then I will have to deal with new hunters who may not give up so easily. Lol
  21. C'mon Jen. We know your a looker. But there's gotta be more upstairs. What do you have against this machine or ML ? Seeing that you own a few already. Did they do you wrong ?
  22. It looks like they've solved the obvious problems we have suffered on the beach with this thing. But I'm really interested in the internal guts. Looks like the numbers will be spread out more. But the numbers have always been a bit jumpy. Other than the solid line targets away from all the trash , those are easy. But I recall being possibly the 1st to talk about digging a -5 and pulling out a honker gold ring from 16" deep. It read normal once out of the ground. People slaughtered me for that , calling me a liar. I didn't care and thought more for me ! Eventually more started chiming in with the same results. Bottomline was I still ended up digging about 90% of my targets. Not much different than my PI. I sure hope this new ML has some amazing new technology.
  23. But seriously guys. I've gone through 3 Nox's. Though they paid for themselves in finds , there were a few things that "just weren't right" as you all know. I'm looking forward in just a few hours to get more info on this machine. I know it will be more than the current Nox price. Just hope it's not a stupid price. Regardless , I will still wait a few months so some actual reviews come in. But I'm entering MY hunting season soon. So , if the price is right and when it's actually available , well....
  24. 1st , you will pick up the scorpion and get a poisonous sting as in sticker shock. Then , having the brainless human head , you say I'll buy that ! And finally , the ML Lion will eat you and your wallet. Then off to another victim....
