    Ring Change of plans - but its still good

    was hoping to get into old salt water spot with my snuba system
    showed up - water was warm enough - air was warm enough - water was calm - clear
    But the fishermen were out in force - striper fishermen were in boats over the spot and there were guys hittin it from shore
    So threw plans A & B out - went to plan C
    ended up hittin where the fishers weren't - got rewarded with a nice 18k band and a huge tungsten carbide band
    So plan C worked again

    Motto = "I try to hit where others cant or others wont "

    I'd say the change of plans paid off nicely. Congrats on the rings.

    Question for you- ironically enough my detecting partner (who is relatively new to the hobby) lost his very own wedding ring last week on the golf course I hunt a lot. His ring is tungsten carbide and similar to the one you found. How does it sound/VDI on your detector? Chances are slim of finding it this year, but it should be close to the surface if we are lucky enough to swing over it.

    find are from underwater - so no vdi #s - CZ21 - just makes burps and beeps
    seeing how most guys would hopefully not throw trash on the course and don't see them losing a lot of change - maybe dimes for ball marking
    id just got and either swing for it - pun intended - or go with a couple of steel leaf rakes and rake around - youll hear the click when you hit it
    good luck

    I will gladly give you 10 tungsten carbide rings for that puny gold one. Deal?

    Nice score Casper

    Thanks for the reply Casper. His ring could be anywhere on the fairways and roughs of an entire 9 hole course. It'll be a miracle to find it lol

    Surprised you did not find the anchors those shackle pins go to.

    unless recovered by the owners... the anchors would have been close by.

    believe they are prob from swimming buoy anchors not boat ones - boats are not allowed to anchor near here
