    First for me a 1968 Candian Quarter

    The NOX VDI was saying dime - 28 - but the sound was like a clean quarter. No big deal but this is the first time I found a Canadian quarter, after all these years detecting. 50% silver and 50% copper and not magnetic. Tony

    Sent my NOX Middle rod back for replacement

    I sent my NOX middle rod back for replacement yesterday. They are putting a new one in the mail late this afternoon. I am hoping that the new cam lock will work as it should; Minelab said it was revised. Tony PS: if it doesn't I will go to after market stuff

    Coil cover or no coil cover?

    I find that I have to clean the coil and cover almost after every dirt hunt and after each beach hunt. During some beach hunts I start getting false signals and wonder why until I take off the cover and see the sand and stuff. What do folks do? Leave it off? Fill the coil bottom with resin...

    Very dry today but landed a few cool finds

    Hello guys and gals, it was a very dry hunt today but the Impact produced a few cool finds. I feel this iron relic might be a hitch for a horse or a wagon but I could be incorrect. Tony

    1 - I am curious, is the MK based on the Impact? 2 - does it have the same sounds as the Impact?

    I am just trying to understand more about the Impact. Can someone tell me where the break point for the ferrous/non-ferrous would fall on the Impact? Say I was using 20khz. Thanks Tony

    A few targets from a several hunts with Impact

    Guys and gals, I have been using the Impact and mostly in 14 with VlX2 and DI4, and F3. Sometimes I push up the gain not not always, depends on weather. No brag, just learning this machine and I hope to learn more. I am determined to find a gold ring with it but that might take awhile dirt...

    First silver coin with the Imapct

    Hello all, finally had some success today. My first silver coin of 2018, no brag just happy for a bit. I was using VLX2 and the numbers said 86 87 88 then when I turned it read 90 93 then back to 88. It was a cool surprise to see the 1941 Washington quarter. It seemed about six inches down and...

    Finally a Silver! Ring that is, still a good find no brag, happy

    All, I finally hit a silver on the Impact, I was using VLX2, 14 khz and received a solid 86 in both directions. Excitedly hoping for a silver coin but it was a crushed silver ring with a deep red stone. Like a blood red color. Best of luck to all in 2018! Tony

    Has anyone made their own beach scoop for competition beach hunts?

    I am too slow at competition beach hunts. I need an edge so I am asking if anyone has created their own beach scoop? Maybe your ideas can assist me in digging less sand and keeping more targets in the scoop to save time.

    Hello all, I have only used the Impact four times and today I landed a clad 1986 Kennedy Half dollar. No big deal I know but I have been over this site with other machines. Very cool, machine indeed. Using VLX1 with small coil, I had to dig some junk but that is all in the learning process...

    My Second trial run with the my New Impact

    Hello all, today I went to a farm field that was not in seed yet. That probably will come in March I am told by friends. I gave the Impact the run of the field and not really knowing how to change settings on the fly I did enjoy how it performed today. The machine made me dig a very rusted...

    My First trial run with the new Impact I received this week

    First off, no brag here just a happy old guy in a crazy hobby. I read through the manual late on Monday night because we got home at 7pm and we had to unpack first. So I knew enough to go coin shooting and that was my plan. I had a luncheon engagement I couldn't cancel. So after lunch I went to...
