  1. We should not forget Mrs. JW and her photography so on your way somewhere or as a destination by itself you should go to: https://antelopecanyon.az/
  2. and ... Gold Basin is about 30 minutes by car from this: https://grandcanyonwest.com/grand-canyon-west.htm
  3. I'm in Los Angeles area. We go to Vegas all the time. If you have a half morning that time of year we can get there at daylight, hunt for 4-5 hours and have you back in Vegas by noon! But ... There is a marina on the Colorado River you'd like to see, the Hoover Dam, a ghost town (Oatman) a bit farther on and more gold and meteorite patches ... haha
  4. I have extra detectors and Mrs JW will enjoy a spa day without you. haha You can't come over here without detecting some.
  5. One of the benefits of taking the 2 hour drive to Gold Basin is that you can also find some meteorites! I stayed in Vegas my first 3-4 trips to Gold Basin in 2010-11.
  6. I'd be willing to meet you in Vegas and then on to some patches if you need guidance. I'm sure you would be able to show me some gold that we yanks have missed. Mitchel
  7. I'm not quite ready to swing for gold yet but I'm getting there! haha It will fade into good memories ... sooooooon. haha You've been there and done that so thanks for the memories Norvic. Your spirit shines brightly. Mitchel
  8. Simon, Maybe they will be making an X Coil for the 2300! Then you and Wes could talk about it on MY thread. haha (Did we just start a rumor or a business model to compete with Coiltek?) Anyway, I have a 2300 and if I wanted to hunt mulluck piles in Australia and find gold like Elusive did then I should have taken it to Victoria. Norvic has done more with the 2300 so maybe he will be asking the Russians to make a SDC coil. Actually, I think you would quite like the 2300 Simon. Mitchel
  9. I think if someone were to go back through all of the posts on Steve's or any other website about detecting you would see a progression of detectorists to the latest and greatest technology. Some old technology still works fine such as the GPXs. With proper research there is still a bit of virgin ground or unhammered patches even in WA! Many detectors and coils have had their day in the sun before another product or innovation came along and surpassed it. (Every dog has its day so to say!) The X Coils now have a bit of a shine when it comes to hammered patches and it is reflecting on the 7000. Maybe someone will find some virgin ground with these X Coils but for now they are mostly being used to find missed or unseen gold on old patches. That is a normal pattern of use by detectorist too. Go back to where gold has been found before. Now you do it with an X Coil. Mitchel
  10. JW, Were you hearing pellets and ignoring them? Do you use any smoothing? Mitchel
  11. Several people have them. What is your favorite X Coil and why?
  12. C'mon guys ... it's only money and gold. What's the big deal?
