  1. Got a steves counter balance rod for my detector

    Your going to love it. I bought a detector ed's carbon and compared to Steves is cheep. Steve has a latch that the adj screw doesn't change if you switch coils. He knows what he is doing. I use mine with the pro swing. Still getting use to it.
  2. Got a steves counter balance rod for my detector

    Been awhile since I've been on the forum. Was having problems swinging the 15 in coil and even the 11 in after 5 hours of detecting every day. So I told Steve I was having problems with my hands and back. So he said I better get the longer counter bal with the 3 bags. Wow I love it so far with...
  3. 1662 oak tree 2 pence

    Sorry for the blunt post. Haven't been on forum for awhile. Was dealing with girlfriends cancer and my own health problems. But I though this would be the best place to ask and get a honest review. Found this 5 ft from a fresh water pond in a low spot on a path. When it rains. It takes 3 days...

    Use that small hill their to help you. I would make up something. Even swim rocks down a well greased roller shoot. [ Like at the food store] Steel grabs but s/s doesn't.$$$. That's a lot of rocks to walk over and move off the site. For who knows what. But if you make up something that works...
  9. 🏆 HONORABLE MENTION This is the detector that gets everything

    Minelab gpx 4800 Black sand ! No problem! Depth! You dig till your back can't take it any more. Holes up to 3 plus feet deep for hair pins. You don't want to find a beer can at 5 plus feet. A beach might take 3-4 days to cover with other machines. But this machine will do it in one day and miss...

  11. Want partner to hunt cape cod hot spot. But need a boat to go

    Your right about permission. Most area beaches up north won't let you detect. But some towns let you go detecting on their beaches. I've asked and have been detecting with others now for 15 years with no problems. In fact people leave their tel numbers at the beach office when they lose rings...

  15. Ever give up something you love doing? Like scuba diving- Something to think about!

    I've go so many stories. I Found a coast guard bag while shell fishing that had 3 strips on it. Thought some one lost it over board. So I hit the bag with my digging rake and a bra comes out. So I put it into my floating shellfish tube basket. Said to myself. Cool, I'll check it when I get to...
