    I started doing this wrap style a long time ago too. It always "gets me" when I watch a Utube presented by a manufacturers rep introducing a new metal detector, and their wire along the shaft couldn't have been looser unless they tried to do it on purpose. It just makes no sense but hey, it's...

    Pinpointers What’s your favorite?

    Rumors. An insider of Garretts told me that Garretts had a new pinpointer, based around the Whites TRX and the Garretts Carrot, in process. That was a while ago, and no word about it. Garretts does own the pattens from Whites now. All rumors are just that...rumors.

    Looks like this forum is really dead.

    I have to weed thru nearly 90 percent "views" posts on the first pages, to be able to read actual metal detecting discussions. A metal detecting site shouldn't be like that, and lots of sites have a no politics policy.

    Politics killed it.

    I have been trying a new program

    I will try that. All the times I tried 5 khz in the past, I ended up digging a lot more iron targets. It's interesting. Thanks. Ok I quickly took my 600 w/6" coil, out in my own front yard where I have swept a hundreds of time over time maybe, using 5 kHz and lower sensitivity. I got a good...

    Sunray in-line probe for equinox

    I met another tector the other day who said that Garretts was in the process of building a hybrid of the TRX, combined with the Garretts pointer. That's all that was said about it. He was definitely a Garretts user by his gear and stories of knowing Garrett himself for a long time. That will be...

    Whites "Flagship" Detector ?

    I say it is the V3i, maybe because that was my very first, bought and paid for detector, when I first started the hobby, and I was "married to it" for over 6 years. I still have the V3i and about all of the accessories and coils you can have for it. Picking that machine up now after the last...

    Detectors that have stood the test of time.

    Then, I say that a Whites M6 with the 950 coil is good.

    Minelab Manticore

    If this machine doesn't replicate the FBS machines in any way, 50 tones is useless IMPO. The five tones, in the Equinox is what I came back to, after stubbornly using 50 tones. I came from the Explorers and Etracs and 50 tones was the gospel for silver sounds, That never became reality with the...

    Battery holder for a TRX pin-pointer

    Do you seriously run a pin pointer battery down to worry about a simple battery? You turn on a PPr, pinpoint and turn it off and dig. Batteries last for months.

    What do you do with a guy who digs deep holes and leaves his trash behind ???

    Simple. Quit them. I done that with an old friend whom bought into the hobby because of me. If after several hints...blow them off.

    Minelab Manticore

    What might the added coils cost if the coil ears are strengthened by this new design. That concerns me.
