    Three nuggets and a 'stone'

    A close-up!... Dude That thing is gnarly and it has a hair! From the looks of it, I believe that is just the past leaving itself behind. Sounds like your headed in the right direction now.

    Which detector?

    For what it's worth being an experience GB2 user. In my opinion, I don't believe that Docs opinion is informed enough to have any unbias weight on this subject. I hunted with a guy today that ran the Monster without headphones so I could hear him throughout the day. I took him to a spot that has produced many pieces of gold with the GB2. I heard him gound balancing that machine constantly all day. And yes, he had training from Bill. I have owned my GB2 for over 12 years and have never used or needed a coil cover. My coil has no real signs of wear. In my opinion, a coil cover just puts you that much further from the target. Once balanced, I gound Balance my GB2 very few times during the course the day checking periodically with only fine adjustments. He threw me some of the hot rocks that were screaming on the Gold Monster that barely broke the threshold on the GB2. While the hot rocks he detected sounded just like gold (lead, Iron, BB's Etc.) on the monster. It seemed like he literally chased hot rocks all day. I noticed that there is no distinction of sound on the Monster. No round sound of hot rocks, slightly sharper on iron and the sharp-peaked sound of birdshot or gold. He found a few BB's which might be promising. I had him run the Gold Monster over proven ground where I have taken many nuggets. The monster found no gold. While the GB2 was able to pick off a couple of pieces of gold just feet away. This may mean nothing to anyone. To me, it means I would purchase another GB2 before Purchasing a Gold Monster. Maybe it is the experienced detector vs a new machine but the hype sometimes over promises and under delivers. I challenge you to find a well-kept GB2 for less than 75% of what someone paid for it new even 12 years ago. Just my opinion.

    12V puffers

    Has anyone ever tried 18v Lithium Ion DeWalt cordless drill batteries? I have a puffer and hooked up a car door window motor to it. I have never really used it but on the porch for a couple of buckets. It ran fine for better than an hour.

  21. Rod Nice bunch of gold! I am wondering what the host rock is on the 2 specimens?

    I found some gold today

    Luke Nice batch of Nuggets! It is awesome to break your personal best! There is nothing like seeing that piece of gold on your coil. I seem to do better every time I change the batteries. But getting the detector in different spots in an old patch really strike an accord in my playbook. sometimes it requires a hoe and a rake to hit the spots that the detector didn't reach.

    Hope I have room to prospect.

    Holy Cow It looks like Adam and Border Boy let out the location of their hillside patch.....

    Look What I Found !!

    Say Adam I found a little sawtooth piece like that. It seemed to have originated in the bedrock on the side of the creek channel. Do you think is traveled far?
