The 15 second flick was deemed a worthless sales pitch turnoff here , now a New Waterproof Pi with gold technology added for water/ beach hunter's would be like a Marilyn Monroe movie , would have got my attention , the only thing Minelab has done is made me feel depressed , made my Equinox feel like a down graded car , put my CTX3030 in wonderland with the new technology hype , YET another VLF trying to cap off the Deus2 sales , however they have NO CLUE , how they made dedicated ML machine owner's feel in bad economy time's , lets just say , my stays right here , till ML starts listening to customer needs , and stops favoring the nugget market , a wide range of products are needed , my interests , ONE BAD PI for the beach , not a nugget machine , nor yet another VLF , ML

Earl... suggestion... stop waiting for a detector that may never come to pass... go hunting... you may just get your coil over gold... you are retired, you have no excuses not to be hunting... you are like a broken record or a record with a skip in it

Earl... ML is not going to come out with a pulse for beach hunters when they are selling like hotcakes in the gold fields overseas...

Take out your Nox and become a totlot hunter... gold is shallow... you can even ask Detector about totlot hunting, he sure finds the gold with his detectors... I'm being serious...

I have seen guys buy all the latest and greatest and aren't finding anymore than my old technology up my way.... some of these guys need to just learn one detector... if the coil doesn't go over a target, it doesn't matter what you are swinging...
Yup, tried a ton of detectors, still miss my Sovereign.

I used the Sovereign GT for a while. Amazing detector. The only problem I had was it was too sensitive in tot lots. It would pick up the metal polls and swings.

You know I love watching you sons a beaches videos of the gold found at the beach, but I do got to say I have found more in tot lots than most on the beach. Location is far more important than the detector in my opinion. If it ain't there, nothing is going to help.

Good seeing you too bud!

Life has been crazy the last couple years, but I'm getting back into treasure hunting finally. Just picked up a Legend a week ago. Found 9 rings so far, but all junk so nothing good to post.
