    I bought a Gold Monster Yesterday.I've been trying

    I've been trying since Tuesday to get one from Miner's Depot in Quartzsite. Finally got one yesterday before they were sold out. I then went to the club claims where I found the .22 gram picker last year. EVERYBODY there were using the Monster. The club did a "push" and a dozen guys and gals were detecting, using the Monsters. One fellow showed me a vial with 64 tiny and small nuggies he got out of the push since it was dug a week ago. PeteyGirl and I detected for about three hours and only found trash and birdshot. I met Charlie, a previous president of the club (QMDC). He and a friend showed me a pic of a 9 ounce nugget found by "Wendy" recently, 25 miles from our location. A specific gravity was done and the rock has 6 ounces of gold in it. WE'RE DIGGING IN THE WRONG PLACE!" Oh, well, I'm sure I will find my gold with the Monster. More time on it is needed. I also have my GB2 yet so I can pull out my test gold and compare the two machines. Perused a few Bill Southern videos on You Tube for good measure. PG and I will hunt here 'til the 28th then try the detectors up at Stanton for three weeks. Look for us at the number 18 pull-through for three weeks starting March 1st. We'll be working Weaver, Roadrunner, and LDMA/GPAA claims.... 'til my back gives out. See you there! TTC
    I can't change what happened yesterday. But today, I will work on a better tomorrow.

    I know some folks who are quite impressed with that new model also. Learning curve on all machines is a bit tough but worth the time-lots of luck-John

    I have already noticed ONE thing I don't like about the monster. All the workings are above the stem making it top heavy (still... as light as the GB2) causing it to swing down when holding the stem. But, I can live with that, TTC

    Congrats on your purchase Terry, it is one I'm probably going to make in the very near future. The Bill Southern videos are nice too, they're in depth and he really gets into what you need to be listening for. Good luck sir, I hope you find a big one!

    when it rains it pours. pretty ironic to have the worst fire on record and a 20yr snow storm within 3 months of eachother. gods grace would be a welcome right about now

    John, I thought maybe you'd get a break from all of the nastiness, but it sounds like you're still in the thick of things. I sincerely hope things get better soon.

    The main thing with the Gold Monster, is to re-ground balance every few yards in really bad soil.

    PeteyGirl uses the Monster. Eventually, so will I. I like (she likes) the auto balance (auto 1 and auto 2, as Bill S calls them) feature, making it easy to use for newbies. Also has manual (pump) ground balance. SUPER sensitive, like the GB2! Finding the SMALLEST of metal trash, just have to put it atop more gold! TTC

    If you're where gold has been found before, sooner or later you'll get your coil over the gold.
