Greetings from OZ.
I've been in the doldrums for some months now, mainly due to lack of detecting sites in my area. Lots of detectorists, beaches sanded in , etc.,etc.
It has been said that one in four caravanners have a detector on board these days......we have about 9 Caravan Parks here, so... work it out.
That, of course, is on top of all the locals, like me, who (used to) go hunt on a regular basis.
Enough of the winge.....
I sold all of my machines except for my DFX & MX5.
I've always been a great fan of the ML FBS system. but couldn't come to terms with the two number TID's. (F & C)
I had two CTX's & an T Trac, & sold them for that reason. (Too used to single number TID's......Whites, Fisher, etc.....)
I have been researching detectors over the past two months, & the detector I have been looking for has been out there for years.
ML Safari...FBS....Single number TID's.
My Postie delivered a Minelab Safari this morning, & I also received an RNB Battery from Clegy in the same delivery.
I have used an RNB in My DFX since they were released, & did not hesitate to order one for the Safari.
Now, the fun starts.
Hopefully, I'll have something to post soon.


PS: all Safari tips appreciated

Count, curious if you have had the chance to take the Safari out on her maiden voyage and your impressions ?

Congrats on the new detector!
Think of it as a slower FBS machine and sweep accordingly. Perhaps the best tip is to get Andy Sabisch's book (just rereleased) and study that. It really helped me with my learning curve.

I wouldn't worry about a lot of detectorists on a beach. Most of what I see swinging a coil don't know what they are doing.

Thanks, Champ.

I've ordered the latest Sabisch book, & it should be here in the next few days.

I'm pretty sure it will put me on the right track
