We'll hunting season is winding down so now it's back to detecting before it freezes up. Went to my favorite park and found this really cool Navajo style ring. A Rosie and a few wheats. Just bought the wife a equinox 800 and was out showing her what to listen for. She found some wheats and clad.

Rally nice looking ring. Lucky to have a wife who shares your interest in metal detecting. Seems like that is pretty rare. At least in my household it is.

She couldn't wait till Christmas to unwrap her gift. She is amazed at how sensitive these units are. She is even more amazed at what I listen for and why I find so much more than her. But now she has a good fix on what I'm doing. She'll just have to put in some time to get used to it and dig those faint signals you get from only one direction and only one angle. Digging deep is hard for her but the rewards are worth it. She found that out today. I gave up the AT Pro a year ago and she gave up on hers today. They work well but they are limited.

Have a new user start in Park 1 and it doesn't take long to learn the machine. The most dreaded vdi is a 15 for pull tab!

I felt the same about my AT Pro, but your right about the AT Pro. I went to the 800 but after three years realized that hunting in 50 tones was not working for me because of some hearing loss. I ended up chasing too many junk signals and I am not a dig all type person unless I am relic hunting. Sold it and bought a CTX. So far I like the CTX but only about 3 weeks on it, so too early to see if it is a good fit for me. Time and treasures found will tell.

Nice going on the really nice looking ring.

Well done on the gift-nothing like putting a few brownie points in the basket.

After 3 years with the AT Pro in mar 2018 I went to the 800. 3 weeks ago sold it and went to the CTX3030. My ears are not as good any more on high freqs so I need more visual clues and the CTX is better at that than any other detector or course the Etrac has the same display. CTX3030 is an upgrade with a few extra features to the Etrac.

My wife has zero interest in detecting, but as long as I keep her honey do list to a minimum, she does not complain about my hobby.
