CTX will here in the wet sand. Not in the dry sand though. That Buffalo nickel?

Earl... I tend not to give too much credence to a paid spokesperson for Minelab...

Yes... once after a storm where I found old gold and silver I also remember Audrey being pissed I was hunting there especially after finding that gold ring.

Talking I will

Check it out this weekend, next week the weather breaks, if it doesn't get 12 inches on a nickel, the 15 will get much deeper guy's , Craig i remember when you said the GT was the best dry sand machine , you sold it, i thought you sold the DF to, but you said you were hunting with one last week , never could get you to switch scoops over to a SunSpot, and now 720I , so sometimes what you say , is ? able, your just like me , you do switch up, but your from the old school , very hard head , and it takes you a while, my prediction is you will be getting a Equinox 800 howboutit Joe as far as tests , there are a hundred thing's you can find, he didn't do this, he didn't do that, the real test is do it yourself, than you will except it , or dislike it , in which i will do this weekend, until than i will let you guy's babble on PS it won't be a video, camera, anything involved , take it or leave it, not getting back lashed again here , my backs still sore Craig reports on Dirt hunter's test gardens , it's getting the same depth as the CTX3030 . PS get OBN down here, this weekend, the only thing else i might do , is the boat show OC convention center , and we will compare the Excalibur to the Equinox 800 at the beach. I will let him test it PI Joe , i bet Craig did dry sand hunt with you, and he dirt hunt's to , as far as getting old WE ALL ARE NO SPRING CHIC"S NEWS FLASH TNSS just posted a YOU TUBE video test , it hit a nickel at 12, turned to the side, got the beep both ways, keep in mind, he had the sins at 22 not max 25, and he was in beach 2, not the more sensitive beach 1

Earl.. I plan on purchasing one but I will not jump through hoops because of a any new detector... I did not purchase any of those new detectors that were raved about for the past several years because I like what I am using now in the MXT and Excalibur... I sold my GT's when I got my Excal modded it did everything and more with the addition of the Skullies.

I have not been using a Dual Field... I sold my DF because it never found the amount of gold that I found with a previous Whites PI... sure its deep, but it was noisy which I dealt with.. I also went through 3 coils because they were faulty.. but I had the opportunity to use a PI which I found hundreds pieces of gold with in my first 5 years beach hunting...

Whites stopped making the detector that I speak of and my second time out with it I pulled 2 gold... its got a quiet smooth threshold and was a pleasure to use plus it had a neutral buoyancy coil. Whites should have kept the 9.5 coil its far superior to the 12 inch coil.

I'm like you? I beg to differ for some many reasons...

In the bank, i might get some skullies, but i might wait- to see if your wearing a hearing aid 1 year from now PS my intention is not to impress anyone, i will be hunting this weekend, with the EQ 800, you said you might get one down the road, pack a lunch waiting, unless you can pull some string's pre order's and high demand , not any time soon.

Earl... I don't care how long I wait...I don't need to be the first one to try anything.. I like to wait awhile to make sure these new detectors have all the bugs worked out... a guys posts on the EQ FB page...took a picture of his new machine in a shipping box headed back to ML because it did not work... isolated incident maybe but I will wait... heck you may not like it and have a fire sale


Another question... why do you need so many detectors Earl? You can only use one at a time... master 1 of them... you are not getting any younger either Earl... send your dog to dog day care so you can go hunting other wise you aren't going to be successful as a beach hunter... you can't have a dog tied to your waist and detect. I have a lab as well but she doesn't go with me detecting.. she stays home. otherwise maybe you need a new hobby...
