  1. New Teknetics user here.

    I'm getting a used Omega 8000. Version 4. Should arrive tomorrow. I had a few minelabs, tesoros, garretts and whites over the years bur never a teknetics before. It doesn't have the stock coil but a Cors 12x8 DD. Cors site says that's a good coil to replace the standard with. Sure hope so...

  4. Best book for beginning detectorists?

    Concerning only the subject about metal detecting in general. If you can only have one book about metal detecting which one would you want or highly recommend to a beginner? One that isn't geared to any particular brand or model.

  9. Snagged my 3rd Walker today!

    The day was sunny and in the high sixties! Perfect for detecting. I got off work at 12:30 this afternoon and grabbed my trusty ol' Tesoro B2µ and just drove off in my Ranger. I had no idea which park to hit when I left but settled on a nice little park not too far from home. I been there once...

  14. 5 decades of silver in one hole!!

    Each set of ten beads is called a decade.....And all of them silver. Oh....Did you think I meant coins? Sorry. I found it at a park where I never found anything good since I started detecting 5 yrs ago. Glory Be! I finally found something good there!!

  18. First gold of the year.

    While detecting on a lake shore my eye caught sight of this on the beach. No detector needed. Made my day! 14k and at 8 grams. Shortly after met another detector there and we chit chatted a bit. I noticed he was one of those hunters who walks briskly and swings high and wide. Only thing he'll...
  19. So Long Explorer 2

    She did me well but she just wasn't my cup of tea I'm afraid. Too much serious work involved. I sold it and picked up my third used Tesoro. A Bandido 2 uMax. Gosh my arm and shoulder are ever so thankful. I knew I wanted a Tesoro again after using the Explorer for awhile. I only had one...
