  2. So, the great news is Nokta are working on a Pulse Induction Gold prospecting detector, it was delayed a bit due to other projects, I can only assume the Legend but it's back in development now and to be honest I'm quite excited about it. The market has long needed a good quality low cost relatively high performance PI option. While I don't expect them to match the performance of the GPX 6000 or GPZ 7000 that's not overly necessary, they're likely going to put their detector in a very competitive price bracket to enable a larger number of people to take up prospecting with a PI detector. I would not be surprised if the performance exceeds my expectations though, Nokta never ceases to amaze people with the products they come out with for the price they sell them. I figured it's time to start a thread on it so Nokta can get a bit of feedback from various detector prospectors as to what they'd want in a new PI detector. I'll kick it off with something that I would like, for me I would love the detector to support existing GPX coils, not GPX 6000 coils obviously, the earlier GPX coils. People have a bunch of these things, manufacturers have started long running businesses solely around making coils for the GPX series of Detectors, there are literally hundreds of coils available for the GPX detectors, this would give the Nokta machine a big head start and a also attract a lot of buyers to it knowing they can use their existing coils. There are a range of coils available for the GPX to suit just about any environment with DD, Mono, Concentric, Anti Interferance and so on, a coil for every occasion in every size you can imagine. It would just really make sense for Nokta to take advantage of that if at all possible. Other detectors are running GPX coils fine so technically and legally it's not a problem, it is more so if there detector is designed to suit them. They could even do what Fisher were intending to do and do a Land (gold) and Sea (beach) version of the detector to get more out of their R&D. I could go on for ages on the features I would want it to have and I'll do that in time if others don't chime in with the same requests. So, what would you want in the new Nokta Makro PI Gold machine?
  3. Minelab plastered their propaganda yesterday on Facebook on their dealers pages. I asked a couple of them what it was. Their response, "we don't know". Bahaaa, this must be how Minelab likes to do business with its dealers and customers. Just like the 6000 speaker EMI fiasco of 2022. 🤣
  4. Is anyone here a member of the AMRA? If so, do you think it is worth the price of joining?
  5. Surprised to hear that Felix is no longer with FT. I've known Felix for 40 years + a great source of information I will miss his accurate and detailed approach to his work. The FT detectors have always been very solid and thanks in part to Felix they do back them up with great service. Wishing him well in nis new endevours. cjc
  6. this has always been my strong belief. When a great metal detecting company loses its founder and is replaced by a financial person. Apple tried it with a CEO from pepsi john sculley who was a consumer brand wizard or Microsoft elevated steve balmer to CEO who was another consumer branding guru. I think the same fate has hit garrett with the current ceo. Zero experience in metal detector design. I wonder if he has ever gone metal detecting in the wild.
  7. A proposed mine at Hecla, Wy (near Cheyenne), is currently in the permitting process, and independent economic studies estimate over 2000 jobs will be opened by it. The company is CK mining, and are proposing a site of about 900-acres to be quarried there. The company’s website has some interesting historical information and a geological report about the area: https://www.ckgoldmine.com/site-history https://d1io3yog0oux5.cloudfront.net/_d9c22c808a6c7fec48fed1b6f801c02c/usgoldcorp/db/332/1560/pdf/Copper+King+Report.pdf[1].pdf
  8. Debated on posting the following but it's the truth so here goes. Long story but I managed to ruin the battery on my Monster (my fault) and need one ASAP! So I called Gerry and left a message on the answering machine. Immediately after the call I also shoot an email stating the same. Maybe 10-15min after I shot the email the phone rings and some guy says "it's on it's way out tomorrow". So then I know it's Gerry...lol Anyways...just a little pump and with out a doubt that is the fastest service/transaction I've EVER gotten anywhere, no shit!. So thanks Gerry, appreciate the super fast service.....
  9. Minelab/Codan full year report FY22 is on the Codan website. I skimmed through it and they mention a couple of times new product releases for 2023. "FY23 first half sales may not reach the $138 million achieved in FY22. We do however expect improvement in the second half of FY23, as we generate sales from new product releases and realize the benefits of our business development and marketing initiatives. " Later they mention again "The business remains well positioned to drive further market share growth with new product releases in FY23...." So maybe they will announce something at Detectival. I really hope so anyway.
  10. Thought I saw something about them coming out with a new land machine for coins and relics is there any truth to this
  11. The Codan half year earning report states Minelab has significant progress on 4 new products to be released in the near term. I wonder what near term means in this instance?
  12. Went over to see if Bart had any Gold Racers laying around and typed in bigboyshobbies.com instead of .net and brought me to kellyco 😞 Just a heads up for those looking for machines and equipent. Thought it was a little sleezy but maybe I'm old fashioned.
  13. I didn't really know where to put this but for Nel coil fans such as myself it looks like they're coming back! I really hope so. They have updated their website with this notice. It's sad what has happened to them but I'm glad it looks like they're going to survive it as a company.
  14. Garrett Price Increases in 7 Days On Feb 14th the new and increased Garrett Pricing is going into effect. Get ahead of the increase - Shop Garrett Now We will start a gradual price update between now and then, in order to get all Garrett pricing adjusted before the deadline. Garrett's accessory and apparel pricing will be adjusted first. We will then end this week with the Garrett detector price changes. In other words, Sunday 13th will be the last day before the entire Garrett Catalog will be updated.
  15. I saw this and wondered if they’re talking smf or just several single frequencies. Anyone heard anything?
  16. https://www.kellycodetectors.com/tarsacci-mdt-8000-metal-detector Hmmm interesting new pricing too😳 I’ve got one new unit left, w 12” BEAST coil & ALL the accessories, for A LOT cheaper! And,,,, I CAN instruct you how to run it! Do you think they can?😂 Aaron
  17. Minelab under utilizes it's website and YouTube. They have a Youtube channel that is not overly utilized, and the Minelab website is not what I would call current. The website even still has the Etrac as a current detector being made. When was the last time you saw a new Etrac for sale? It's actually been awhile since there has been anything posted in the Treasure Talk portion. Practically zip for the Minelab News section. Both the YouTube and the website are the perfect place to stay in touch with customers. Why not at least give a heads up like "Coming this fall", "Coming in 2023." "New flagship detector on the horizon" Two brand new releases from other companies and people might hold off if they knew there was something for sure forthcoming. I could go on, but won't. Okay rant over.
  18. Treasure Depot is shutting down tomorrow. Detector/Prospector may get an influx of people wanting to join, to trade and sell detectors.
  19. Codan/Minelab's share price of $9.81 today when it reached $19.35 in June and has been in free fall ever since would indicate something is up. I hope it doesn't affect them releasing new detectors as they tighten the belt. I am guessing the Deus 2 and Legend won't be a good thing for it either. What I don't get is why they didn't ride a high with the GPX 6000 release, normally any detector release shoots up their share price, instead it went down.
  20. Questions -- So, what is going on with Whites and Garrett.? It appears all Garrett has done is Re-Release the 24k, and I see no other mention of anything else they are doing with the assets they purchased, it's hard to believe they purchased the company for one detector and it's tooling, Any idea what they paid for the company? For those of us that have been around for decades, the loss of Whites was and is a Big Deal, for although the company went downhill after it's founders death, it still has So Much history of innovation and top notch products it is hard to believe they did not have designs on the books that Garrett could take advantage of, So Where are they.? If you think I am wrong, just look at even today Whites machines are Regularly mentioned, and often in a good light. How about a New V4i.? The technology of the V3i was on par or better then almost any machine today, just wrap it in fast electronics and more simultaneous multi frequencies and a simplified interface and with that color screen and graph and other features and good ergonomics it's a sure winner.! A new TDI with similar upgrades? A related question -- What is Garrett doing these days? I have seen nothing of note from them in years, just average rehashed junk, the AT series was ok but is old tech repeatedly Rehashed long ago, How about a new Pi.? even just an ATX in a light package at a good price may keep them in the game.!
  21. Now that White’s has closed the factory in Sweet Home, these are the officially designated places to have warranty work and service done. Garrett has purchased White's, and will continue to support the product, with manuals here.

  23. In regards to Tom Dankowski’s statement regarding myself….https://www.dankowskidetectors.com/discussions/read.php?2,152652,184080#msg-184080 I find this very interesting especially since I did NOT purchase the modified Tarsacci unit from Dimitar, I bought it used from a third party, who Dimitar custom made it for. Therefore, I had no said “agreement” with him. The gentleman called me recently and informed of his interest in selling the unit in order to free up some cash for the latest XP flagship. The gentleman suffers from significant hearing damage working around heavy equipment and being a professional musician. He could NOT differentiate the high tone from the mid tone. I suspect the same is for others…. This modification cuts the learning curve down SIGNIFICANTLY! I didn’t see a need for the unit until he sent me video samples of which I immediately noticed BIG difference in audio. My only intent was for the Tarsacci community to realize how much better the audio (((could))) be. However, things being as they are with Dimitar he is not in the habit of listening to his customers, just as he hasn’t, regarding a small coil, BEAST coil cover, arm strap, extra lower rod, hard copy manual, all of which I endlessly lobbied for to him for you guys (and you know who you are). Very strange this statement is made about me especially since I’ve done nothing but promote the Tarsacci. Even though I’ve pulled the forum due to maintenance cost and bad Tarsacci sales my YouTube videos bring Dimitar TONS of FREE promotion. Before I pulled them they were getting almost 5,000 minutes a month in view time. Now that I brought them back, in only 2 weeks people have spent over 31hrs have watching them. What people don’t realize is subscribers mean NOTHING, it’s VIEWERS. 80% of my viewers are NOT subscribers, Dimitar doesn’t get that….. And there’s more aspects, tricks of the Tarsacci that haven’t been addressed anywhere on the forum or YouTube that I still to publish yet, lack the motivation… APL
  24. It’s been a while that I’ve been on the Aaron's Tarsacci forum on tarsaccisales.com and now I can’t access it. I’m wondering if we still have one there. Maybe someone out there has the answer, Chuck Link to forum (still broken as of 1/13/22)
