  1. Ha, thanks Chase, I don't know why, but somehow I never thought to check their site. I'm surprised it's not listed on any of the sites I see selling it. It does look pretty sweet. It's gonna be tight but I'm hoping my Nox will fit in it without taking the coil off.
  2. Does anyone know the dimensions of the XP backpack?
  3. Any ideas when it will be available? Anyone buying it at that price point. I've been (softening) up the wife about it so we'll see.
  4. Looks good, anyone see anything about price and availability?
  5. Hi, I had read it a number of times but I guess I just wasn't understanding it. Thank you for the reply, I think I understand it now. I have been using it in program 4 and I don't even know how I created that program. I did try to use it in standalone with another detector on the hottest day we had this year and I must have messed up the settings. I will try to reset it and start over. Thanks again.
  6. I'm using the MI 6 with the Orx. It starts off in program 2 out of the box and shows that on the remote screen. When you change it to program 7 does that show on the top of the screen on the remote? I've played around with changing programs and 7 will not show. Am I not understanding program 7? What programs do you guys prefer to use and why?
  7. I started with the black version way back when and liked it. I upgraded to the orange and like the fact that it is submersible. One feature I really like is that if something sounds like it is close to the surface, you can drag the pointer across the ground on its side and if it picks up the item you can then stand it up to use the tip to "pinpoint" the spot to dig. I hope that makes sense and I'm sure some of the other pointers have that ability.
  8. Not sure if this question belongs here or in the Detector Advice section. I've been researching the MI 6 lately and I'm almost positive that I'm going to purchase one. I really like my Garrett so I'm hoping that I like the XP even more to justify spending that much on a pinpointer. One stupid question I have is why does the old ad for the XP say there are "Standard" features, "XP Plus" features and then "XP Plus with Deus" features? I get that the Plus with Deus features would work when connected to the Deus but why are there 2 other sets of features listed? And since my local shop has them on backorder, I will probably order through Amazon. I've read about some issues people have had with the MI 6. So is there a certain "made by date" (for the lack of a better term), or any kind of different versions I should look for or try to stay away from? Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Those buckles are awesome. Very unique. I like the middle one the most.
  10. I fanned out from that area on Friday and about fifteen feet away I found 8 more. They weren't all in one hole but were very close to each other. They too are all in rough condition. Could only read one date (1889) at this point. I just don't understand how all these pennies and no other coins can be in one area of that yard.
  11. I kind of have a thing for them too. My first "old" coin was a IHP, I can still remember the day. We are done on that job for now. Hoping they call us back out there. I'm surprised I didn't find any silver but I'd be willing to bet there is some there. Hate to admit it, but I'm old enough to remember penny candy.
  12. Hi guys, I just posted about finding a pocket spill of IHP's with the Orx in the coin and relic section. Please check it out.
  13. I've been hunting the yard of a house we have been working on for a few weeks. The house is the first or second house built in that town and has some decent history. So far I have only found 3 old horseshoes, a completely shot rusted pocket watch, a few pieces of lead pipe, a few newer coins, many rusted cans, and a ton of rusted chunks of steel. I was about to leave the job today and decided to search for a half hour or so. I was about to leave and decided to dig another signal that sounded decent. It ended up being an Indian Head Penny. I was pretty excited to finally find an old coin on that property. After rechecking the hole I ended up finding 8 more IHP in a space about the size of a table place mat. I searched all around that area and found on more less than two feet away from the first hole. They are in pretty rough shape. After only rinsing under the faucet, the top 2 show dates of 1891 and 1883. The bottom 2 are unrecognizable. Hopefully with some cleaning I can get a few more dates off of them.
