    Keene Mini Max

    finally got one of these units. first impressions are very good. I love how nice the legs unfold and have many different positions very easy to set up, even for the first time. I had about three 6" dredge trips and allot of misc samples from different areas, and I've already panned all this and then ran it thru my junky gem stone sluice. ( of course my three yr old boy ran by and dumped a litle sniffer botle in that had some black sand and gold.lol. so it kinda reun the test I was trying to achieve. this thing can run allot of cons fast, I could throw two scoops of damn near all black sand with no problems. I got the new version with one big pump. it has a flare to turn it into a regular sluice, 2 diferent clasifyers and two different sets of rifles. the riffles for cons fits allot looser so I'll probally just use the bigger riffles for everything. all in all its a nice light weight set up that will work perfect for sampling creeks that arnt flowing or a fast way to knock down cons from my 6. I havnt used the cube but I could see where it would be better on dredge cons. ill eventually have both and do some test.

    Dd Depths

    this has been bugging me for awhile, and I can't find any info on it. so I totally get how a bigger mono coil gets better depth over a small mono, but I don't see how there's any gain from going big on a dd, the ground coverage is obviously gonna be more but I don't see how there's much depth gain if any? looking at minelab web page here. thanks https://www.minelab.com/go-minelabbing/treasure-talk/gold-detector-coils-explained-for-minelab-s-gpx-and-gpz-series-detectors
  6. I am to curious about this coil. I use a 14" elite mono and have great luck,punches deep, excellent on small gold...... really happy with it. I do need a big, best depth coil just to check all my spots. I was researching the nugget finder 25" mono and seen a video on the detech 15" coil out punching the 25. kinda thru me a curv ball, I was set on the 25 but if I can do the same with a smaller coil then ill get that. I'm just waiting on more info

    Big Coils -- Do You Still Use Them?

    what would the best big coil be? sounds like the nf25 is popular. I have 14"elite and love it, I want something big to check all my spots. I know I'd love the 18 elite but I figured if I'm gonna get a big coil and deal with it just to check spots, well why not get the biggest
  8. thank you I seen it but looked wore out
  9. Looking for one or something similiar.pm me what you have and how much. I have some gpx stuff to possibly trade. Thank you
  10. I wonder if you would be interested in a trade for a 15x12 mono commander coil? it is scuffed up I used it a few times.
  11. so at what point if any is a dd Better then a mono? I have a gpx 4500 with elite 14" ,a great combo, I know my machine well and have never had a problem tunning it. i recently got a claim that has very hot ground so hot that i sometimes have to turn it down below factory presets in enhanced with a mono, I have been wondering if any gains can be achieved by running a dd with higher setting and different soil timmings? thanks
  12. lol not big by any means but WAS a sun baker. worked my butt off for a couple days only to find a few pounds of trash, I tossed my detector down out of frustration and noticed it right there next to the gpx.lol. at least it got me laughing and to quit complaining.hahaha

    yes especially when on a motorcycle. I did convert that xp deus shaft I got from u, but it still stuck out of my pack just enough to catch tree branches and yank me off the bike. plus it didn't like big coils. xp is now the hip stick
