  1. Actually a few things to know about Quest (as far as I am aware): - They were the first manufacturer to put pulse induction into a hand held pin-pointer - They were the first manufacturer to have a USB rechargeable pin-pointer - They were the first manufacturer to put Li-Ion batteries internally into a detector - They were the first manufacturer to make dedicated wireless systems for detector users I may be wrong but the name change came about for three reasons: 1. People struggled to pronounce Deteknix properly 2. It sounded similar to Teknetics 3. Bu
  2. My pick has a large bolt and nut to secure the head, and it sometimes get caught on the loop which is a pain when trying to get your pick out in a hurry. My larger pick head is secured by two countersunk screws, which slides in and out a lot easier, so I'll have to mod my other pick the same.
  3. No, it's meant for tradies, so they can attach something to it?? I find it just gets in the way, so I cut it off.
  4. Kac - "In the manual says I need a wireless module to connect the headphones to the Gold Kruzer. Problem is the case I have doesn't have a port on the side to plug a wireless module" No, the wireless in the Gold Kruzer is built in. You can just pair the headphones straight up. Earlier machines had the plug in wireless hole, but only a blank was in there. When you bought wireless headphones, you'd get a wireless dongle that you can insert into the side of the control box. Later machines started to incorporate the wireless into the control box so a dongle wasn't required, and the hole
  5. I don't like stuff hanging off my shoulder straps. An external speaker is enough. I have my sP01 on my wait belt (left side). Audio cable goes around my back and connects to the WM12 which either sits in my right pocket (detector side), or in a small pouch sitting sideways. Makes the harness easy to put on and off. As a trial, I've recently got rid of the strut and have gone back to just a bungy which is pulling off both shoulders - ran like this since the GP extreme days. I've also got a clip on pick holder and mounted that on the V (below the neck) so I can have a big pick in the
  6. Lots of good points. I actually liked the Goldmaster V/sat better than the GMT. A few guys I trust said the Goldmaster 3 was even better.
  7. Only one can be active - you are either in FE or FE2
  8. To put it simply, FE02 is a lot more aggressive at blanking a mixed iron signal, so undoubtedly some masking can occur given the right target cluster.
  9. Something that I wrote and posted somewhere?? The full ID scale on all Nokta Makro machines is 00-99, but they have used different ferrous/iron ID scales (or ranges) on their different detectors, i.e. 00-10, or 00-40. So what is the difference? A wider ferrous range is good for relic hunters so they can accurately set what level of iron they wish to ignore. This as a result compresses the non-ferrous ID scale, so you get more stable ID's, but can group certain targets close together. A very wide ferrous range is also used on detectors intended for gold prospecting, because ther
  10. Then you'll have 8 million prospectors swarming the gold fields and every last speck will be sucked up in 4 months. 😁
  11. Yes exactly. 250-300g less weight at the end of the stick on each swing quickly adds up. (I know from swinging the 12x8" Evo compared to the 15" Evo). It would also improve balance by shifting the balance point further back. Also no raised bar along the front half of the coil would be welcome, so I don't have to twist my wrist 90 deg when I'm using a scoop.
  12. All wired headphones I have tried on the Simplex have been super loud! Recon-ST's (same drivers as Sunray Pro Golds) Yoga earbuds Sony MDRv55 headphones Technics dj headphones Anything half decent quality around 32 Ohms should be giving you plenty of volume
  13. Worked with Des for many years while we were both at Minelab, and worked together (even through it was remotely) on many new detector projects. Was happy we got to meet in person a couple of times, and kept in touch quite regularly. A good friend gone. RIP Des
