  1. I've tried it too and not done all that well without adding ion some simple target testing--cross sweep, PP wide /narrow--you get a lot of bang for your buck with these. Nothing I like more than watching these YouTube gurus go from one hunk of iron to the next... I think one of the first things I noticed with the Manti was just how good the spikes sound... cjc
  2. Its not just that our CDN coins are full of steel but also that the Manti and Legend see them as alloys--they are being biased out. When one of these coins has been in the ground a while they become more like the ground and are even harder to detect. For my purposes, alerting to the tiny "flag" that the non ferrous part of a CDN coin gives is an excellent trainer for small gold. You might as stated above do well to run a high FQ. With the Manti--peaked tones mean good, non ferrous metal--distinct from the ground. CDN coins are pretty much the opposite. Makes these machines a hard sell up here as good as they are. Hate to say it--but here's another case for taking the time to learn a bit of basic detector theory instead of going out with this "I just dig everything" mentality. Its these nuances of signal type that let you wade through the amount of fidelity that a machine like the D2 or Legend or Manti offers and not go out digging targets that aren't even LIKE what you are looking for. cjc
  3. A buddy of mine went to a Sportsman's Show and came back with a Whtes brohure and I was soon the proud owner of a Coinmaster 6DB. This was in '89. Then I picked it up again in 1993 and evenually figured out that there might be something in the water too...by then I had an Eagle 11 and a CZ5. (first signet a "C"--I knew I was home...😁). Next was a CZ21 and my beloved Cuda. Still got em both...Here are my first few bits from the parks....It was a bit easier then. Now--there\s a troll under every bridge...😆 cjc
  4. Not enough water up the nose...it takes gallons and gallons to find anything...😆 To be honest that represents a lot of misery and a lot of dead heats--with a few flashes of glory... To operate at that level is a lot more like work than a hobby. cjc

  7. Heres the finished product: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIT2ZjCbIzE cjc
  8. They would kidnap me right off the plane... cjc
  9. Me too...but its all water up the nose... cj
  10. Not too much of an ad I hope more of an ad in the making lol.. cjc
  11. Ya, they are decent rocks--I was told $1200 on the men's ring and the engagement is .75, an S1. Im just glad that for once they are real...lol. Glad you are still at it Mike. cjc
  12. Its true, first year the NOX came out I cleaned up--then everyone else figured it out...this is why skill building is so important --to have an advantage over all those hunters whose only strategy is getting there first. cjc
  13. Wear and Tear is right...! Its true you gotta spend to make and buying and maintaining these detectors can be a real drag on what looks like a sweet load of finds. Best line in any of my books (and the truest) is that "...I pack and mail a detector for service like most people sneeze..." Achoo, Achoo--there go two--and a headphones... Not to mention gas, travel, all of it. At the same time, when you compete with people who live next to the beach or are just determined top pros, having the choice of several TYPES of machines that do different things is a must. This lets me translate the experience I've gained in 45 years of swinging into versatile, focussed action in relation to what the conditons present. The three major "pushes" are: depth accuracy and coverage. Sometimes you need all three. Sometimes it even works...cjc (Here are a few "away kit" pictures, pre Manti)...If you want to operate at this level--prepare to spend a few bucks...😆
  14. NOX big coil sounded like a scratchy nail. cjc
  15. A machine like the NOX or Manti is so accurate that can slaw shows how alloyed and mis shapen it is when you use the cross sweep. I see so many You tube hunters doing this moronic "wiggle" that acts to make a wild signal sound better as the machine cuts out the inconsistent parts with progressive sweeps. I also size targets that seem too big by using Pinpoint. The NOX's modulation is bad for making these bigger targets "(deep "rotten glasses)" sound coin sized though--These are the kinds of targets that waste time when one does not bother with basic skills. So many scoff at my books but don't know any of this. Last laugh is mine--seeing what these guys have dug every time I hunt. 😁 cjc
