CJC mentions this Mod in his latest post and I was wondering what the ramifications are to such a combination.

This is a very impressive detector despite how old the design is. Mod was done by Jim Pugh himself (inbetween hunts) and solves the ongoing problems I've had with the stock coils gradually taking on water through the heat-shrink seals. With the mod it's very stable and deeper still. Also Jim tweaked the optimization on this one to be very hot on gold so that most of what it hits cleanly is in that range (tabs, high- foils, nickels...). I think that part of the reason that it's so stable is because it's 9V. and doesn't overwhelm the matrix. I've found stuff with it going in behind machines that were 12V with larger coils. Just getting an Ikalite plug put on some GG's that will bring the audio up as well. I strongly recommend that anyone with a 'Cuda give these mods a try--it's as good as any P.I on the market.
