  2. Has anyone tried gold hunting with a Nexus MP V3 in heavily mineralized soils ? If so, I'd appreciate any comments. Thanks.
  3. hello, I would like to know if people use the nexus mp v2 or the mp v3 on the beaches. Is it efficient and stable when searching on sand mineralized by oxides, thank you very much
  4. Here is a glowing article about a mine detector that reportedly combines 2 technologies. Does anybody know more about it? Who makes it? Does it work as advertised? Would it be of use outside of the mine detection context? https://asc.army.mil/docs/pubs/alt/current/issue/articles/54_AN-PSS-14_Mine_Detection_System_Offers_Improved_Countermine_Capability_200701.pdf
  5. Latest metal detector to try out. Experimental unit out of the Ukraine made by Alex. I mounted the control box on a White's s-handle, Fisher armrest and Fisher lower tall man's rod. Very light weight. My unit is set up a little hotter. Hopefully the weather will cooperate Saturday for a field test.
  6. I’ve have never seen this detector before but maybe someone on here knows all about it. The odd thing is the name of it . Chuck
  7. Many years we learned from Monte how to have advantage in separation. He was great person and always helped with advices... With his help borned MD that differs from others... Some tests
  8. Ok new IB baby. I will try it soon. Thank you Georgi!
  9. I decided to document my new journey with the Nexus. https://www.youtube.com/@BeepnDigRelicHunting-fe5gs
  10. Hello, does anyone have any news on this new stinger detector, thank you
  11. Worked very well in bad ground, lite weigh housing, Auto ground trac, pinpoint, three tone options, visual target I.D. and depth reading down to 10". I may take this one with me to the After life.
  12. Has the ability to help eliminate unwanted targets in the first few inches. Mint condition.
  13. Given to me by a friend it still works perfect.
  14. Hi I heard that a good detector for trash areas was the compass 77b professional. Any thoughts. Would like to acquire one. Anybody out there have one to part with,
  15. And people thought Deus 2 is expensive https://vogeldetectors.com/qz-80/
  16. Hi I have some compass Metal detectors that I plan to sell off. Was thinking about keeping one. I have what seems to be a 77B, not the professional, just the standard 77b, I also have a Judge2 Automatic. Was wondering which is the better of the 2. They both are roughly 1982 vintage. And the advertisement from that period shows the Judge2 as being slightly more expensive. But I have reason to think that they were both 100hz. So what should I keep.
  17. I just read that some 1000 Vallon mine detectors are being sent to Ukraine in support of its defence efforts. https://www.vallon.de/en/metal-detectors Don't know what models. Knowing nothing about mine detecting, I wonder how useful a metal detector may be in finding mines nowadays? I understand that many have very few metal parts and I would imagine that battlefields are awash with shrapnels and all kind of other small metal trash?
  18. Many years ago, I was keen to buy a Compass AU52 via Ebay but missed out by getting outbid on the last 5 seconds. I always wondered what I missed out on....anyone out there owned one, used one or still has one? I'd luv to know how well it runs and whether it matched the Gold Bug 2.
  19. New Rutus name will be ATREX. What's new you'll find in Atrex? The first novelty in the Atrex is the availability of two types of software that the user can change himself in an innovative way. "Basic" for those looking for a user-friendly detector and "Advance" for users who want to control every aspect of the device. There is no need for cables or special applications that the user has to install on his laptop to change the software. Everything is operated wirelessly using WiFi and an ordinary web browser, so that the software can be changed even in the field using a phone. More advance software may develop in the future. Multifilter is the second important thing. Wherever the ground is highly mineralized and it hinders the search, Atrex has an "ace up its sleeve". The Multifilter is an algorithm that runs in the background of the detector's normal operation. If a small object made of non-ferrous metal can be signaled by normal ground filters, i.e. there is no problem with the ground - nothing is happening, the detector works in the classic way. If the signal from the ground is greater than the signal from the object - the Multifilter, based on the data archived for the last tens of milliseconds, can reconstruct the approximate ID of the object and signal the non-ferrous object. The effectiveness of detection of non-ferrous metal objects in heavily mineralized soils increases very significantly. We have verified it in reliable field tests and there is no doubt that the theoretically developed "Multifilter" works in practice. Next new feature is the ability to neutralize the effects of water on search. Neutralization does not mean "masking" the problem. Electrically conductive water has different characteristics than metal objects. If we "stimulate" the water with several frequencies, it turns out that we can easily "subtract" the signal from the water, and the signals from metal objects can be further processed. With Atrex, you can walk on wet beaches, swamps and peat bogs just like you would on dry sand. Another novelty is the Noise level preview screen. From now on, choosing the operating frequency will be easier. Just turn on the preview screen and select a frequency where there is no interference. The new color display is very little susceptible to the effects of low temperature and always works just as fast. Atrex will contain all the functions that are in Alter71. A new wireless receiver with a built-in rechargeable battery will work with Atrex. We expect to release Atrex on foreign markets at the end of the year.

  20. Hi guys just wandering if anyone knows the value of a Troy shadow x5?
  21. By nature I like to improve things for the better. I took a real liking to the Bliss V5 but, it needed something. Decided to replace the scratchy GB pots. Fine adjust pot is bad between 3 and 7, worn carbon wiper inside. Replacing with RV6 precision mini pots. I was going to use a 10 turn for Coarse pot. That idea was shelved as they don't make them in the 500R ohm range. Both pots will be single turn. What I clued in on awhile back and then saw some one mention on a forum regarding the Gain pot. For the most part you don't need to set it higher than 2. And would like the 0-2 or 3 range spread out further. That was my thought as well. So I will be replacing the linear pot with an audio taper pot. It spreads out the range over half the pot rotation, super fine tunes the lower numbers. I will be measuring out the spread between the linear and audio pots to see the exact spread. The V5 is now open and taken apart. Will have it ready this weekend. Will also see if there are any other improvements that can be made.... I did make a very positive s-handle mod. The angle of the handle was a bit too steep, it would tend to bother my bad wrist after awhile. Not enough so I could not keep detecting. The most comfortable s-handle I found was the White's Space Saver (What they call it). Which I have used for all my Pi builds. With a bit of muscle power, bent the Blisstool s-handle to match. This little mod, that didn't cost a penny made a huge difference. Search coil 7x9", balances just about perfect, and now has a wonderful feel about it. =============================================================================================== Update Made the Coarse and Fine GB pot changes to precision pots. Big difference. The usual cheap carbon pots used like most detectors had poor resolution as you turn the control. I watched on the voltmeter, when you rotate the Blisstool pot, a slight movement jumps the settings about 10 points, you you will never get precise GB setting. That's why trying to GB is very touchy. With the new precision pots a slight rotational movement of 1 point increase in settings can be made. This should definitely help out manually ground balancing, getting a spot on GB. Second change was the Gain control. I switched the Blisstool cheap pot with another basic carbon Alpha brand pot (Tesoro, etc. used them). Instead of replacing it with an identical "Linear' taper pot, it was replaced with an "Audio" taper pot. Since most will run around 2 or 3 on the dial. The rest of the rotation is wasteful. With the new pot orig Gain setting from 0-3 is now spread across 0-6. You can now dial in more precise Gain where you need it. Then ramps up closer to the orig. pot. Also shows a bit more added Gain at 10(max). Thinking some of the other controls might benefit from switching to a precision pot or an Audio Taper pot. For those that have a Bliss in the closet gathering dust, some easy modes might just make the Bliss owner a more happy user. Hoping to get out with the V5 Sunday afternoon for a test run
  22. Spec's don't look bad, curious on performance and control features. https://www.seriousdetecting.com/product/air-metal-detector-the-smart-bluetooth-metal-detector/?goal=0_0b451a6847-e8b7bd7836-159565445&mc_cid=e8b7bd7836&mc_eid=1b80072cca
