    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    Terry,

    in such a challenge "luck" has a greater role than "tech" or "skill". Would be better to say: "Hey you cover a halfacre w/ your deus, and I go afterwards. If I fins something non-ferrous, I won".

    The machine? Something with a double d coil would be my choice. Allows you to cover more ground. That would for me rule out the Ace, which is imho otehrwise a sound entry level machine.

    We are taking this into consideration, as well as how we hunt the location each week. We are thinking about dividing the location into halves, then switching after two-hours, each hunting behind the other for the next two-hours. I think it will be a good experience and a lot of fun.

    Assuming you will be buying a new machine at retail for $250.00 max I went to the Kellyco website to see your options. I came to the conclusion that you should buy an F22 that comes with the DD coil (retail $239). I consider the F22 an upgraded F2 that uses only one 9v battery vs the F2 using two and it is weatherproof. I find myself grabbing my F2 on occasion, a simple turn on and go machine, I just turn it on disc out iron and I am off swinging. The stock DD will give you better target separation vs another machine with a concentric coil and it will give more depth than the many other machines that come with an 8" coil. I am not, now and never will be, a dig it all kinda guy thus I overlooked machines that did not give a target ID number.

    How could this not be fun? Sounds like as equal a way as can be to go about the hunts. Sorry in advance to some of you who hunt with the most up to date and expensive rigs, But I'll place my bets on the experienced hunter regardless of gear...

    Maybe you shoul take a look at analog looking detectors such as Pirate, they can be quite a good performes for a lover price, if that is not considered as chitting.

    What would stop Terry from selling it after the competition? I am sure the bragging rights are worth more than the money that was bet.

    OR.... Keep it and have only 50 bucks into it.

    Then hang on the wall and say to all those crew that attend the rum drinking "hey you see that... that's the detector that won the challenge"... " fifty two bottle caps and a worn down nickel".

    " I won by a nickel". :P

    I have been challenged! Help me choose my weapon.

    I hope he knows who he’s going up against? You’re the man where targets look for you.
