  2. So it's 9:30 Pacific Time....Location : Motherlode. As I sit at the computer contemplating going to sleep and just saying Happy New Years to my forum friends because I for one have not stayed up till 12 in some 24 years I had this thought about dd coils. Yeah , I know.... you ask Why the Heck would I think of such things...Well it's a funny thing, as I recall back I would say my largest nuggets were all found with a dd coil. It's been a year since I found my bigger few with a 11" dd Minelab, than I read how most pros would never bother and only use MONO....so I figured okey if its good for them, its good for me. Time past and I found gold with MONO coils. Time past and the gold came not so frequent, than I looked at my dd coils gathering dust and had memories of my largest nuggs were found with a dd coil. So just for kicks I went and did it...I put on the small elliptical 10x5 and instantily within 5 minutes a hit a nugg. The following week, I slapped on the Minelab 11" dd, by gosh...another one !! Maybe its just coincidence, I mean..a Mono would have found them...but I just wonder....whats in those dd coils....So my New years resolution is to use the DD coils more often and see how it goes....Happy New Years to you all, I am going to bed.

  3. My hopes for everyone here is that this is your best year yet but not your best year ever. R H 2- Please stop reveling my closely held secrets I have spent most of my life around chainsaws, heavy equipment and my wife so I have poor hearing. I need a threshold tone to be as smooth as possible so I use a DD a lot of the time. Some times I will start the day with a mono then when I get tired and lazy (I'm always lazy) I will switch to a DD so that my addled brain doesn't have to sort through a bunch of noise. With the GPX 5000 I can fiddle with it and get it to calm down in more places than the previous models so I find myself using a mono coil more often. If I could only have one coil it would be an 11" DD.

  7. Thanks for the kind words. Guess I'm at that age where I have to write about it as just gettn' bloody old. Funny thing is that story was a tnet winter story back in about 2002 or so. I have dozens of them. GREAT newsletter this month with some very good news as the ungodly dredge/lawyer/lyer game continues unabated-Kudos Bill as a great read sir-respect as always-John
