    Re: MD Clubs in South AFrica

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for the great message and compliment I have been on often but not much in the replying as I have been having a bit of a break..... I am still very much in love with the hobby, but am battling with strange weather and long grass, so have not done much..... also doing up the house at this time, which is a hateful job at the best of times.....

    But keep eyes open I am around..... and I will still answer any mail....

    God bless
    Peter

    Re: MD Clubs in South AFrica

    Hello Heinrich, nice to hear from you, and welcome to the forum.

    Metal detecting is great fun to do, as well as a good exercise and a way to get out for a while. I started out because of heart problems, so was benificial to me.
    As far as a detector is concerned, I was given mine to me by a friend as a blessing. But I have seen one going for about R600 at I think Glomail, which is not the best one, but good for starters to see if you wish to get more involved...... Other than that, others have used the internet to buy theirs from overseas, like the USA.
    For a good detector though, you are looking at anything from around R4500.00 and upwards depending on what you want to get. The other option would be to get a secound hand detector for probably a lot less in the junk mail. Stay clear of the BFO type detectors as they are too limited as far as depth is concerned, and also do not have discrimination...... without discrimination, you have to dig every signal......

    Hope that helps you a bit...... if you do need more info give me a shout on this forum / Topic or send me a PM message...... I am in Westonaria, Gauteng.

    God bless
    Peter

    Re: MD Clubs in South AFrica

    Otherwise you can contact Wolfgang in Cape Town, he is the agent for Minelab, his prices are excellent and so are his machines, my first machine I bought from Astro Automation in JHB did not know of Wolfgang at the time and a few months back, I have bought another Minelab from him as well, I am running both machines, the new one is a VFLEX this is a digital machine, the older machine is a Sovereign GT but it is still one of the anologue machines, you must remember that cheap is not always cheap, and depending where you want to use the machine will determine which machine is best for you, remembering that discrimination can be helpful, but do you really want to miss that special item that you left lying in the ground, I dig everything, but I also find things, now depending where you are searching for example the beach, yes you will find lots of trash there, but I am in fact sick and tired of hunting on the beach, I find it more rewarding when I search old farm houses and battlefields. Even a ploughed up farm field can give you some rewards as well, never mind even along the roadside.

    Well if you want to contact Wolfgang, here is his number 083 500 3723 or you can give me a ring on my cell 082 499 1924.

    cheers
