  1. If you are headed up near Prescott let me know and I will X-RAY it for you. Of course, it doesn't tell you how much gold is in it, but it looks pretty cool. Dean
  2. Nice work! I love the larger specie! Dean
  3. Nice shooting, Luke! Dinner at Leff-Ts was awesome as was the the company! Thanks to you and your wife for a great evening!! Dean
  4. You've been there, Chris! I love that red dirt too. Dean
  5. Thanks Mike! Im with you...16" coil max here in AZ. even in the so called "deep" areas unless you need to cover a bunch of ground looking for that indicator nugget in open ground. Chris G and I were in Gold Basin about a week ago and he did very well with the 15" round Evo. I swung a 18" Advantage for a day and was skunked with it then switched to the trusty 14x9" Evolution and scored. The larger coils may cover more ground per swing but they make it difficult to swing the angles and the tight spots where gold tends to hide. Plus, the smaller, lighter coil allows an operator to swing longer due to less fatigue and, ultimately...cover more ground. A conundrum, I know. All a part of that whole " hunt strategy" thing. Time spent with the "coil to the soil" is rarely mentioned and is as important to success as is being on good ground. Having a set up that can be swung all day as well as being fit enough to do so will put lots more gold in the poke. Gary, Congrats on your "Z" nugget! I think the GPZ will see certain types of gold that the GPX won't. I'm sure you will go back to your old "cleaned out" patches and score gold that the GPX didn't see. Should be fun! Nice work, Luke! Luckily, I have a face made for narrating videos . Dean
  6. Are you in a known gold bearing area? If not, I'm with Ahorton...most likely hot ground. If you are, I hope it's a big un! Good luck! Dean
  7. Nice, Tom! That place looks familiar. You guys must have been in Greaterplaceritasandomingobasinville again! Nice going! Dean
  8. The reason Minelab introduced the Nox like they did is to "freeze" potential buyers of other detectors to wait for the Nox. They are predicting early spring as a release date. I believe it was a very effective move on their part. I think that the new Garrett AT Max release will suffer as will the high freq Deus coil release. E-TRAC, CTX, and GM won't be affected, I believe, as they do different tasks. Dean
  9. Fact, you idiot, he is president. He doesn't " think himself a president". The spoiled NFL players do have the right to protest ...but not without consequences. The only right that they have is freedom from prosecution by the government. Not freedom from consequences from their employer, the fans, or the American people. I believe that the NFL will suffer for this BS and will, out of financial necessity, put a stop to it. Dean
  10. I will have lots more time now to devote to detecting since I will not watch any more NFL football after today. College football is better anyway! Dean
  11. That's the way ya do it. Nice work, Garry! Dean
  12. Wow! Just saw your post , Terry. Very nice. A bucket list coin! Great find. Dean
