    So the big hot links in the ad on his blog that say SHOP NOW don't go directly to a sale site to buy detectors?

    a newbie with the Equinox 800 is likely to give up after 20 hours if they are hunting trashy parks.

    Anyone can posts links to any vendor site on their blogs, if they go to a non supporting vendor then his blog would not be allowed to be posted on TNet. As stated I know everyone who works for Kellyco and Calabash is not a paid employee nor paid to do detector or product reviews.

    If you felt it was then you report it to mods and mods decide if it was a rule violation, you do not attack a member and you do not tell them to leave our forums.

    Still laughin.
    I reckon ye missed my earlier post on this (my) thread where I clearly stated that, unlike Gary Drayton and other for-profit detectorists, I don't charge for my writings and tips. You didn't have to pay a penny to read my original post on this thread (if indeed you bothered to read it before criticizing me), did you? One can take my suggestions and advice, from 49 years of detecting, or ignore them. It makes no difference to me. It's a win-win for me either way. If you take them and use them, I get pleasure from knowing I helped someone. If you choose to ignore them, I get the pleasure of telling you "I told you so."

    To all of you that had com.e ts in this thread I appreciate your input. As a returning noon I would be happy to spend time with each of you to learn more about our sport. As a disabled vet, I laugh,sometimes inappropriately to know my service allows us all the luxury to argue with each other over our collective sport. If any of you ever get to Warner Robins, Ga, the coffee and Krispy Kremes are on me!! And Treasure Hunter you're the bomb-diggity!!!

    So true. In the old days of just turn and go, todays complex detectors are really set up to find stuff and have a good separation of sounds and numbers for each. It is hard when there is red clay soil or lots of iron around to make this work right. And depth of each different thing. Depth can change the sound or number of hits. Only when you really work with it can you say, “ I want to move up to something better”. If there is. Seems like they really have it down now to finding and “ naming” what is down there , fairly good. Like stainless steel bolts and gold rings. Same number. Aluminum beer tabs and gold or silver rings. Old Spanish silver alloy cobs and lots of things. They sound alike. Takes a long time of use to be proficient at it.
