Funny comment about the battery.

May 24, 2018 06:49AM avatar
I used home-brew detectors from early '65 until my first factory-produced unit from White's in the summer of '68. By late '71 I had owned and used a number of other brands, including Garrett Electronics models as they were, back then, in the top of the quality and performance offerings. I usually had 2 to 5 detectors in my arsenal that included one or two Garrett devices. In '77 I became a Garrett dealer and continued with them until mid-'81.

Since then I have only had a Garrett model on-loan for evaluation or tinkered with one I'd buy for a brief period because they didn't perform on a level I wanted and needed to match the main devices in my detector arsenal. Matter-of-fact, I can only think of one Garrett I've had in the past 30-35 years that I used long enough to deplete a battery, and those were AA's so that old Garrett labeled 9V sure wasn't anything I discarded. I know I am old and even feel old, much like that battery appears, but I'm still alive and moving slowly and methodically now. My detectors and coils have taught me well. winking smiley

It was great to meet up with you on the Outing but really wish you would have had more time to spend. Now, if you can manage a get-away for a few days this summer, Gregg & I just might offer and opportunity for a few folks that aren't too distant to make a drive up this direction for a 2 or 3 day detecting event at an old ghost town site. It'd be a chance to see you again, and also see how that '800' works in another very iron littered site. That is if Minelab figures out how to make a smaller size search coil by then.
