    Iím getting my detector sling tomorrow

    I donít know whatís going on guys I detect practically every day and Iíve been doing it for a couple years now I think it all caught up to me. My arms, shoulders and elbows are constantly sore from these larger coilĎs and now even with the rattler coils I can go many hours like I used to. And also my hands go numb very often and theyíre very sore all the time. Am I over doing it it old or both? Lol

    Go buy a Deus. Weighs under 2 pounds. And they suck stuff out of the ground.

    Which machine do you use? I can't get everybody straight. The Deus is a lot lighter than the ATPro, Max or the Fisher you have listed. My arthritis also sucks and I don't mean stuff out of the ground. My backup machine is a Tesoro Cibola.

    I swear by the pro-swing for my CTX with the 17in coil. I can go 4-6 hours no problem. I tried the cheaper sling and didn't like it. Hanging in the garage, $19 wasted lol

    If I had a detector sling, I'd probably wind it around myself and fall down, probably in a hole or on a cow pie or some such thing.

    Hope it works out. I can't tolerate the thought of any machine that weighs over 3 pounds.

    Don't worry Bill, we will hook up a mobility scooter or something if the time comes. Personally I think thats a long ways off, but we will keep you hunting one way or another.

    Machines aren't better than other machines, so to speak. Unless you need a specialty machine for a salt water beach or a nail pit, and then just dig and sift the nail pit. If you want to see something funny, watch me try to get up off the floor or ground. I need a 10 ton Morgan crane, like the use at reservoirs or dams to get me up. I must go light weight these days. I picked up a couple Minelabs when at a competition dig in VA last year and almost fainted at the weight. Some machines are heavy enough to drive fence posts into the ground however if you forget your sledge hammers.

    Sad but true, I swing the machine with my left hand and use the long handled digging tool almost as a cane anymore. Mainly to steady out the walk on rough ground.
