    • Don't worry about the heat slowly killing your detector . . . And no, I do not come anywhere close to AZ until Nov 1st, unless the last week of Oct drops below 100 degrees. Then maybe. The locals usually hunt early and late in the day, or at night. The heat is life threatening, which can't be over emphasized and must be taken seriously. Even experienced Desert Rats get into trouble sometimes. Always go with someone, don't venture far from your vehicle, stay hydrated (drink water frequently, thirsty or not) Be cautious and don't over do it 'til you get a feel for it. After that no one should have to warn you because hopefully, you will begin to sense how dangerous it can be.
    • a thing to think about is...If you buy a detector from Bill , you also get instructions too...in my opinion it would be...GLOD monster for just  GOLD OR Equinox 800 for general hunting, Talk to Bill about your choice on either machine...can't go wrong buying from a GREAT dealer.....my opinion.
    • Hey thanks BMc. I'll study them. They tout quality and their detectors do look pretty good. Oh i was going to ask do you go out metal detecting in the summer's here in AZ? I want to but i don't want the heat to slowly kill my new detector.
    • Or, you could just wait awhile 'til the weather heats up a bit and leave it out in the sun for about 30 seconds with a raw egg, hash browns and bacon on top of it. Then finger it with a little bacon grease, slip it over the coil and have breakfast!
    • I've run across a couple of users in the field who had good things to say about the Gold Racer. At 54 kHz they should be sensitive to smaller, as well as larger nuggets. The comments were that hot rocks/mineralization is still an issue (at Wickenberg) but manageable. You might look at the Makro Multi Kruzer which has three frequencies to choose from (5 kHz, 14 kHz and 19 kHz). Features: Waterproof to 5 meters (16 feet) and increased depth function. Basically similar ability to handle hot ground. Expectations are that it will be OK in moderate to slightly hot areas but the real hot stuff will still be an issue as with "most" VLF detectors. I just picked one up for a combo coin, water and prospecting tool to see how it performs. It seems to be built well, has a good screen/meter set up, rechargeable batter plus extra battery pack option. Accurate on coins, and discriminates satisfactorily on ferrous, trash and bottle caps so far IMO. I'll try it in the gold fields later this summer. You might also check out the Makro Gold Kruzer at 61 kHz. Good reviews and features on that one as well.
