Thanks Dave, I was down in Florida for a bit so I haven't been on TNet much. My Simplex picked up a trime last winter at 7-8 inches without a problem... they give a surprisingly good signal for being so small!
Well folks, I'm back! Did a bit of detecting along the treasure coast but only ended up with one piece of maybe gold jewelry. I haven't looked at it up close yet though so it's probably just plate. It was a great deal of fun but I discovered beach hunting is not really my thing... too hot, too...
Dang Bart. I don't even know what to say other than that shiny yellow roundness is something very few of us will ever see, you've definitely put in the hours and had your fair share of luck too... huge congrats!
I think that's what it might come down to. None of my field sites are a go for today so I think I'm gonna head down to the 1870s house that produced gold, some late 1800s-1900s silvers, and a couple coppers last summer... I haven't hit it with the Simplex yet!!!
Yeah I'm with Charlie... it might help if you told us what kind of detecting you are planning on doing and a price range of what you'd like to spend. I've never used a "high end" detector but I'm a field hunter/doorknocker and I use a Nokta Makro Simplex. It does not disappoint... I've used...
To everyone who buys from the Ukrainian guy: what is their username? Is it (deleted by mod for rules) as Pondpuck mentioned?
I'm going to Florida in a few weeks and I still need a scoop... ideally something cheap but still pretty durable for my week and a half (ish) of digging.
