I've used a few PI machines before and didn't particularly care for them. I just spent too much time digging iron junk. I figured this would be better because it's supposed to have some discrimination, but, so far, I haven't found it to be reliable enough to ignore "bad" signals. Still, if it will find gold deeper than any other machine, that's pretty much what I bought it for. So far, I haven't found any good target that my other machines wouldn't have found. Deep iron, sure, it finds that junk 2 feet down, but, that's not what I'm looking for. The lower clevis just broke a few days ago, so, it's down at the moment until the new one arrives. Also, the factory battery life sucks. Fisher says it will get 3 1/2 hours on a charge, which is kinda pitiful this day and age, but, I knew that from the start and could live with it......if it actually got that. The problem is, I haven't even got 3 hours of use time yet, even though the battery has been cycled many times now. I did manage to get a custom long life battery for it, and it's sitting here waiting to go on it's maiden voyage as soon as the lower shaft gets here.
    wow, not what I was expecting to hear considering how much time this machine was in the making. I have been following this machine's progress for quite a while. Keep us up to date with your findings and good hunting buddy.

    Just got the replacement lower shaft and clevis today. I pleased to see that the new shaft is longer than the original. That was a slight shortcoming I thought. No way to see if the new clevis is solid or just thicker plastic. Maybe I could have looked down the shaft with a good light or inspection camera, but, I didn't think about doing that until I already had it mounted on the detector. I hope to get out soon and give it a good test drive now that it's fixed and I have a good replacement battery to use.

    I have 3 that id place on that list..... starting with the Tarascci MDT..... the Nox.... and the Xcal. But i mostly wet sand and water hunt...... sounds like this guy DRY sand hunts mostly. Some of the machines that do well dry sand hunting ... in some ways can be as time consuming as a PI in the water with all the tiny foil or some style of bottle caps.
