  1. With all this talk about the GPX 6000, I’m staying with my retro detectors. I’ve found teeny ones at depth and bigger ones that took an hour to dig out. Picked up these machines from a retired detecting couple who had them as backups.....they were “new in box”. Totally unmodified except for the external tune pot on the 2100 and regulated power supply. Hooked up to the legendary light weight 18” mono Kevlar coils makes a formidable nugget hunter......no bungee required. Two detectors and six coils for 1/4 the price of the 6000. Then again, my 70 Series Landcruiser has a manual gearbox and you h
  2. I could not wait to get back to my spot at the beach. The GPX was on fire!!! I had an idea that I would revisit the spot I did previously, and try and get the faintest targets that I could hear through the moderate EMI. I was hoping they would be silver dimes, as they are the smallest and possibly hardest to hear. I also wanted to remove some very big iron that took up a good section of this spot. I thought it may be masking a lot, since this is a target rich area. Even though I had reasoned my strategy in my head, I did not expect these results. When I did a lot of park/school hunting we wou

  4. It seems most like FBS machines but a good V3i hunter could maybe make this machine shine for silver.I never had a V3i.
  5. Thoughts? Customer sent me this, looks more like a Military unit. Not the GPX 6000 look I expected. A prospecting store in Australia has this info, a customer sent it to me to check out - https://tryhardprospecting.com.au/is-this-the-ultimate-sdc-aka-mf5/
  6. http://dankowskidetectors.com/discussions/list.php?2 ####### Thread titled Minelab Equinox owners, page 12. ######### Tom Dankowski is looking for input , in performance and design on the next Minelab Flagship detector. Tom has input with Minelab. Pop on over to Toms forum and read the thread, and post your ideas. I started a post about 25 posts down on this thread, about new ideas for the new Equinox. Not realizing they are looking for ideas. Reading the post by Tom about being able to add target density into ID is awesome.

  9. Back in May we were speculating on the filing of a new Minelab trademark for "MF5" and what kind of detector that might mean. Well, Minelab quietly added the MF5 mine detector to the lineup. What makes this interesting is the MF5 employs the fold up housing originally developed for the F3 Compact mine detector, and later used on the SDC 2300 gold nugget detector. The Minelab MF5 introduces a new coil that features a round transmit coil combined with a EMI canceling figure 8 receive coil. The coil measures 7.5" x 10.6".

  10. "The proper threshold on hot ground, any ground type for that matter, is a nice and high full sound, stable and rock solid threshold that cannot be wavered on that ground type.. Allowing the highest sensitivity they can muster. Causing lovely repeatable dropouts in the threshold on deep signals on heavy ground." Hello All. I have an old Minelab GT16000, and in the process of searching for Coils, came across a post(above) by "argyle" that suggested a completely different Threshold setup for some of the early VLF detectors including mine. Just wondering if anyone has used this
  11. Hi guys ! Yes, I am a beach hunter, but I was invited to metall detecing on a WW1 field... So the beach hunter I am was suddenly contemplating a huge corn field which has seen some ww1 Action... I chose to hunt before noon (2 hours) with the Equinox 800, and two hours in the afternoon with the Safari I happened to win at a detection rally two weeks ago. As you can tell from the posted pics, the Nox Found 18 targets, the Safari 32, but i felt the afternoon search was richer in targets...The best find of the day was a silver King Leopold II 1867 2 Francs (Belgium), a v
  12. I have not yet installed latest update to my EQX 800. Saw this posted. This gent here I pay attention to what he says. Credible gent imo. https://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=284513
  13. I saw one of these for sale for basically $200 + shipping. Is that a good deal? What's the typical resale price (Fair Market Value) for a machine like that? Thanks!
  14. I need a quick opinion as I'm ready to pull the trigger on one or the other. I can get the Eureka gold like new or a used Xterra 705 at a great price and need some opinions quick. Thanks much! Terry
  15. I've been out of commission for the last couple of months with a broken ankle. While I was laid up, I did a couple of mods to a couple of Explorer's I bought last month. I stole the idea from Kevin(IDX Monster), thanks again! I finally healed up enough to hobble down by a lake near my house and do some digging. I ran it with gain set at 7...16 manual sens...variability set at 10...conductive tone...fast recovery....no disc..... manual noise cancel at 1...Minelab 8" coil. One thing I did find out real quick was how fast it is to get out of shape. Anyway, set out to dig it all and relear
  16. Here is a link to a terrific article about beachcombing with the Minelab X-Terra 705. Lots of great technical notes here so print out or copy to your computer before this external link expires. Beachcombing With The Minelab X-Terra 705 by Matt Renshaw
  17. So my trip is coming up i asked left right and center as it is hard to get a straight answer......so i may take my Xterra and use it .I guess GPX and Z are far too long to learn in 2 weeks ......Deus even in 80khz may struggle with OZ soil........not many Deus in Australia yet.....Have you ever tried the prospecting mode because this what i may use RR
