  1. Thx for an entertaining, informative review Steve! Ill wait a few more months, there is another trusted player coming out with a midrange GBPI perhaps by spring. PI, its rumored to be waterproof military form factor.
  2. Thats how mine got beat up Martin, well a few unintentional drop n kicks too I need the option of keeping the control box off wet ground. Still need to add the small coil mod that allows you to lay the coil flat.
  3. Hard to beat the 8" commander on the SD units. A good compromise for the NGE (near ground effect i.e. swamping the receive from surface mineralization ) of a mono on the SD series. If I remember correctly the 8" was included in some SD 2200 D packages, meaning ML felt it was suitable. The 5x10 Commander DD is a sweet lil coil on the SD's also a must have IMEO. Sometime a great bargain can be found in a used Coiltek Joey DD.
  4. The legs end up behind you. I may shorten them a bit and they do pull off easy enough for storage. GB is done with the off hand. Same with the switches. Altho I think Ill trim the stock legs to allow a bit more finger room. Like any change you get used to it after a while and I know the unit well enough to run it in the dark. You'll get a chance to try is soon Klunker…….it has a DD coil
  5. Herb did it I added the legs. Like all detectors with the control box forward they benefit from this move to under the elbow. Carbon fiber upper and legs make this gold bug feel like a feather with perfect balance.
  6. Pfft my website has problems with the paypal buttons. Till I get it sorted out you'll have to pm me or use my email link on detectoraid.com It would be simpler if Bill would just stock them again………..
  7. Info sent to your listed yahoo email Dennis! Thanks for your interest. Chris
  8. PM me your email and Ill send information about the WSPA. Currently were at our 100 membership cap, I urge you to apply by filling out an application to reserve a spot on our wait list. Here is a few klunkers from one of our new claims.
  9. Big round ones for deep gold. I use an 18" and a 25" (when theres room).
  10. Rob and I are looking at some job commitments that have just come up, his is business, and mine is mining so it looks like we may not be able to attend. We need someone to pick up the slack and be the WSPA dinner host, this will be an easy one hamburgers + hot dogs. Thanks Chris
  11. Bill & all, Rob and I are looking at some job commitments that have just come up, his is business, and mine is mining so it looks like we may not be able to attend. We need someone to pick up the slack and be the WSPA dinner host, this will be an easy one hamburgers + hot dogs. Thanks Chris
  12. Saturday's dinner we will still need a few side dishes and bring your own plates n such WSPA will serve hamburgers and hotdogs. We need a count of folks so we know how many dill pickle chips to buy
  13. Harnesses need to be fitted to the individuals body and needs. I spent several months looking for what works for me and ended up with a hunting version of a wild lands firefighters pack made by Nimrod. For me its the most comfortable, and customizable with pouches and pack options. Kudos to ML for recognizing the need ….. shame on them for claiming innovation.
  14. Small monos, like the Sadie are inherently more sensitive to variable hot ground. Small sample, tight windings. When I'm hunting in nasty hot ground conditions. I'll move to a larger mono ( the Commander 8" then the 11") before resorting to a DD. In fact when folks inquire about the purchase of a small mono from detectoraid, I'll ask if they own a 8" Commander and if they do I'll then only recommend the Sadie for wet ground. The stock 11" Commander is a brilliant coil and should be your default choice for 90% of detecting. There is a good reason why ML includes it with every (consumer) PI they sell.
  15. Kept waiting for him to go back up that long hill……
  16. Don't happen often, but I like it when it does!
  17. All depends on the soil alkalinity. Wet ground in Northern Nevada is noisy as hell, let it dry completely and even a GB2 can be used. In neutral soils an even dampness helps a VLF more then a PI this is due to the way they work a VLF is a constant radiation whereas a PI relies on sensing a magnetic decay. And the only choice in reality is to detect or go home.
  18. Some small ones. No poision oak in the high country.
  19. 1.6 & 1.2 OZT 1857 S Seated Liberty Half. Just for scale
  20. The WSPA is seeking advise from a experienced Mining attorney. If anyone can recommend one.... Please contact me via email Thank you, Chris
  21. Get the BLM book, Location and Valadity Mining Claims. Read the reg's for yourself. But know this, Sawmill is correct 99.99 % of the time.
  22. Just proves you don't have to know the code to work at the BLM.
