Welcome from Georgia!

the other side of the US!

My soils are different, my hunting is different, i use some different machines and have traded off some, but nobody here has a problem with it.

yea forums can be quite testy and i had to try and be peacekeeper on a few. some nationally known contributors and people in the industry got in a dustup once on a forum, a ruined a good forum that is finally bouncing back somewhat. two forums have tanked recently.

some forums are clannish groups that can say anything to each other, just dont get in your opinion. then you are zapped.

Monte runs a good forum. and now dont be surprised if Monte "Dares to call the baby ugly!" thats an old saying way before your time. Monte and this crew are not cheerleaders for a particular brand, although they may like a brand due to performance and quality, they have a varied arsenal with specific purposes and constantly upgrade, but keep a few oldies that still perform well of different brands. they point out the good the bad and the ugly of them all. i was a Tesoro Cheerleader, still have several, and love them, but had to open my eyes to other options. remember they ALL find something. learning to use what you have to the maximum effect will find you plenty. and location is a key. my hunted constantly spots still surprise me occasionally with a nice old coin or find, different machines,different setting, different coil, different day of the week.

the main thing is coil to the soil and swing. get out and do it, dont get discouraged. i wish i had started regularly before i was in my 40s. at 63 i plan on swinging a coil till i die. its my thing!

again welcome, start small and simple. the SimplEx is a great unit, have one. the smaller coil will help. my favorite units are in the 80"s that still find things and are great trunk units to carry everywhere and not worry about a theft and expensive loss.

again welcome, read, practice, persevere, have F U N!
