A Man's gotta do what a Man's gotta do. This Man can't do nuthin' cause this man is broke. Lol Congrat's on the new toys. Let us know what your thoughts are when you give them a try. I always said that "you can't hide money."

Congrats on your new toy purchase
Smokey.

Well you might as well enjoy this side of the grass. Spoil yourself with the fruits of your labour.
I hope I can, because in 10-15 yrs from now the detectors are going to even better.
But I'm saving to buy a digging robot. (Battery powered of course):headbang:
Hope the kitty is making a recovery 🙏

Well, I also gave some money to an orphanage in Africa I have supported for over 10 years now, and delivered gifts for the local VA residents. And sucked up to my cats.

So this dumb cat just ordered an XP Deus II. No particular reason. Just a little bored. It will be a kazillion years before it gets here. AND I certainly don't need one. But I did it anyway....

At least it isn't necessarily wasted money. Metal detecting is good for ones health so oh well lol

We are of kindred spirt Smokey. I ordered the new Legend. It's not like I need another detector either, and I was thinking only a million years. Perhaps we are at that time in life that we just want something with that "New Detector Smell". sprailroad

Ordered one super early. See they are shipping, just not the US yet. May let my Deus 1 go along with the NOX 600. real interested in the legend as well. Watch those Nokia vids first.

No one will give me a nickel for my current Deus although it works perfectly. It looks like a dog chew toy. And to add excitement to life I blew out my hip and leg is swollen like a sausage left out in the August sun. Things not looking too good.

Smokey, sorry to hear about your hip problem. I'm the recipient of two store bought hips 20 & 25 years post op. If you have to have surgery, the secret is finding a great surgeon. I was fortunate enough in being married to an RN. She did some major research and found my surgeon in Atlanta who specializes in sports medicine. His specialty was backs and hips. He replaced the athlete, Bo Jackson's hip. This surgery made all the difference in the world, and I'm pretty much pain free almost 26 years later. I can no longer run, but I'm going on 66 years old and don't really see the need to run (unless I'm being chased by a grizzly bear). I sincerely wish you well. You have to get better so you can play with the New toy when it arrives.
