ahhh, c'mon, just take that puppy out to the nearest blighted inner-city park and dig foil and tab signals till your arms fall off. I guarantee that eventually you'll find a gold ring. Ok ?

You can't use where you live as an excuse for the lack of finding gold Earl... we put you on it here in CT with OBN... he found his fair share... don't use the wrong scoop as an excuse either... OBN broke his Miller scoop in our conditions and still found the yellow...

If you want to admit to me that you forgot to turn your detector on I may except that excuse

PS Craig i hunted 3 weeks ago with the DF , who said i can't use it here, i will admit at my age digging ALL is work when you hunt -60 blocks , no stink mud iron infested beaches here , i AM GETTING a AQ , now why would i sell the DF Doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to figure that out , you need to get out of the house PS ill take Lisa hunting one day , she will find gold she liked the gold over silver chain , i gave it to her TOM just tring to get you all fired up howboughit

I got it because I was told it worked in black sand. Tahoe has stretches of beach where the Nox canít handle the black sand. Iíve turned sensitivity down into single digits and managed to squeak out some shallow coins before the overload.

Fresh water.

Did you try dropping to single frequency and see if one of em can handle the minerals? Been curious about this being a prospector as well.

What mode are u using? Beach 2? If that donít work try field or park in a single freq. and raise the recovery to 5. Are you sure itís not trash.... like rusted cans? Because if it is trash you sure donít want a PI.
