    Eurotek Pro 8" paid for itself today

    Dug these things @ a 1930's school today. I think the ring will more than for the 8" Eurotek. It's very bulky & stamped 18K. Read "74" at 5" deep. Ya' gotta' dig those zinc penny sounds. I would assume the stones are real. The other ring is junk, the next thing I dug was the real one!

    Eurotek Pro at the old House site

    There were two houses here on about 3/4 acre that were built in the late 1800's. The city burned the houses last year and I have hunted here several times in the last year. Nails and iron are everywhere, a real nightmare. Iron grunts on every swing. The little guy performed very well. I only dug...

    First Day With The Eurotek Pro

    My first day with the Eurotek Pro. I sure love the audio on this machine. This is my first Teknetics & I'm impressed! This hunt was on a University campus dating to the 1850's. Lots of WIFI so I had to keep the sensitivity down around 6, Still plenty deep. Lots of clad, a 1951 Silver Quarter, a...

    Is the Safari a Dud?

    I have had my Safari about a year and a half. If I look at the E-Trac and Explorer forums most of the posts are about the great finds those users are making. If I look at the Safari / Quatro forums most posts are about issues/problems users are having. Is this telling us something???? My old...

    Two More 40's today

    Both bounced between 39 and 40 but mostly 40.Both are marked 925. I had on the Minelab 8", man I love that coil! Odd I never dig aluminum cans reading 40. Most of the cans I dig read 32-35, like a zinc penny,but I can tell them right away by their "pinpoint size".

    Last weekend at the Old School

    Searched the grade school I went to when I was a kid last weekend.I graduated from the 8th grade here in 1966. Most trash I have ever tried to hunt in! Short 2-3 foot sweeps give 5 or 6 iron hits. The Safari with the Sun Ray X-5 pulled 3 silver dimes, a D&P token,a dollar coin and some clad...

    Safari Disappointing air test results

    Results of my Safari air test. Disappointing to say the least. This can't be right. Silver dollars have lower ID than a zinc penny???????????? Copper penny registers in the silver range and a silver dollar is in the copper range. The silver Dollar has a lower tone than a zinc penny!!!!!!!!!! Any...

    New Safari........Yep, gotta Question:minelab:

    I've had my Safari about a month. It's my first Minelab, WOW:yikes: I'm impressed. My question is about manual sensitivity. I have red several posts about users setting it at 15-18. So far I'm not finding any spots where I can set it much over ten without low tone falsing. Lots of times I'm down...

    First hunt with my new Golden

    My new Golden Micromax is a keeper. Who said these aren't deep??? I picked up on the tones right away. This is the first silver I have found in 8 months! About 3 hours in a school I've been hunting for 20 years. This is a fun detector. I love how it pinpoints.

    Holy Grail 1916 D dime Found with CZ-3D !

    I'm in shock! Found last night with my Fisher CZ-3D in an old football field. I have not cleaned it, this is how it came out of the ground. I found the dime at night and it went in my pouch, didn't know what I had until I got home. This is one of those sites that drive detectors crazy. Tons of...

    Unbelievable Fisher Find

    How do you explain this??? Saturday two weeks ago was my youngest/only daughters wedding day. The wedding was at 2:00. Well that gave me a few hours to detect if I got up before everyone else! Went to a local grade school with my Gold Strike to hunt the chips. First target was this 14k...
