    So lemme just verify,,,,

    Since borrowing a friend 600 I have decided to get a Nox of my own. I was thinking that I had to buy OEM Minelab wireless headphones, but I was just reading that I could buy some aftermarket ones like the ones linked below and they will work just fine? And these would work with the 600 as well...

    Only took six years,,,

    This will seem silly to some,,, I see you guys dig them all the time. I've been detecting for six or so years now. In all that time I have never dug an Indian Head Penny. Well today the empty lot in town gave me my first. Now I just gotta find one from the 1800's.

    Equinox on loan

    So my friend has purchased an Equinox 600 with 11" coil and is a little unsure about it. He has loaned it to me for a couple of days to figure out the basics, and share my findings with him. I've only watched one video so far, but it seems pretty straight forward from a "getting started"...

    As Jeff would say,,,,

    I was the "wheatie king" today,, lol Returned to the empty town lot again today with the Anfibio and 7" concentric coil. My friend brought his new Nox 600 today, so I brought some coins and laid them out on the ground for him to test his new machine on. I also scanned over them and was reminded...

    Junk from empty town lot

    Lately I've been digging an empty lot on main street next to our park. Lots and lots of screw caps and clad. Here's some interesting junk I've dug in the last couple of days. The item on the top left was trash,, or so I thought. Turns out it is a golden foil prophylactic case. Some play money...

    Compadre finds a silver bucketlister

    Hey all,,, it's been a few months since I went out digging. Last week while driving I noticed a guy swinging a Garrett Ace at our local, well hunted park. I didn't stop but it did bring a smile to my face as I passed on by. Then yesterday I saw another guy swinging a Vanquish at the same park...

    A couple of simple finds,,

    Nothing "Banner " here, but got out and swung the Anfibio in 5 tone some this week. The fob and toy came from my yard. The two wheaties came from behind where the old town blacksmith shop used to be. The fob is software related from the earliy 80's as best I can tell. One of the wheaties had...

    Everything sounds good on the Anfibio,,,, frustrating

    I bought an Anfibio Multi last year, and didn't immediately take to it. This year I've vowed to put in the hours and give it a fair shake before deciding to keep or not. But my goodness,,,, everything "sounds" so good on this machine,,, especially nails. And to make it worse, they seem to lock...

    Today in history,,, April 9,1865

    Today in history,,, While sitting in a room in Appomattox Courthouse Va., Generals Lee and Grant developed and agreed to the terms of surrender, bringing an end to the Civil War. I've been reading a book about Lee's last few years and wow does it describe the grief and struggles that he felt to...

    Pulsedive pinpointer

    Can the Pulsedive and Anfibio be paired and used with the headphones at the same time? I see references that it can be done with the Simplex, but no mentions of the Anfibio. Secondly,, how is the Pulsedive as a primary pinpointer? I wouldn't mind having a waterproof PP to go with the Anfibio...

    Nokta/Macro Coil Weights?

    I picked up a 9.5 X 5 DD coil today for my Anfibio. Decided to weigh them for reference as I couldn't find anything online. If you know the weight of other Nokta/Makro coils, please share them here. I'm especially interested in the concentrics. 9.5x5 DD = 14.75 ounces 11" DD = 16.875 ounces

    Anfibio wireless headphones

    Just curious,,, can you synch other brand wireless headphones with the Anfibio? I haven't had time to get out and dig with my new machine yet, but I did notice that the Notka phones were not big enough to stretch over my ears comfortably. Wondering if other wireless phones work. For example, I...

    Not sure what I was thinking,,

    With the love/hate relationship I already have with my CIbola, you'd think I would know better than to take on another one. I was contacted by a feller on FB about a Cibola "that has 3 or 4 wires that came loose". Next thing I know I have acquired this thing as a parts machine in a trade for a...

    Ultimate coil on T2?

    Who uses the big 13 inch ultimate coil on their T2? Do you like it? I've bought one, but have only used it once so far. I'm hopeful,,,,,,,

    The right tool for the job,,,

    Detected a heavily hunted spot today. I know this is a popular spot for groups to get together and detect. Been pondering on something all week. I bet that they didn't spend much time under that powerline, by the metal fence. So this morning I broke out my $40 flea market Compadre and gave it a...

    Cibola with NEL Sharpshooter?

    Ran a cross a deal today and ordered a lightly used NEL Sharpshooter coil to try on my Cibola. Gotta wait a few days for it to arrive. Anybody used one on a Cibola or Vaquero? What was your impression? Also, anybody tried one of the big NEL or CORS coils on a Cibola? Thanks in advance.
