    GPX5000, XP Deus and a bunch of others.
  1. Its has a lot of nice feature with Auto Ground balance, a DD coil and a very nice large display to help with the target ID. Overall, a nice machine for the money. :)
  2. Hi Dan- We have just about every NEL coil in stock for the AT Pro... if you want a Storm, it could ship tomorrow. Just give me or Tony Stevenson a call. Keith
  3. Yeah, its hard to believe that everyone (except Steve and Matt! :) ) are trusting their multi-thousand dollar detectors to a $.25 ziplock bag! It works well, though!
  4. Dave - I wish I would have seen this before now, sorry about that! The differences between the three models (4500, 4800, and 5000) are minimal when it comes to relic hunting. While I hunt with a 5000 (because I didn't know any better when I bought mine!) I have hunted beside both the 4800 and 4500... from experience I can say that all three will find relics equally well. There may be a VERY tiny and I mean VERY small advantage the 4500 and 5000 have over the 4800 in the form of one setting, but overall feel confident that any one of the three will serve you well. We have sold a bunch of 4500s to relic hunters who would have no other machine.... :) If you want the fine details on the differences, just give me a call as its easier to talk about them on the phone rather than type them. :) Hope that helps!
  5. Every once in a while we get a deal come in that seems too good to be true... but this is the real deal! If you have been thinking about grabbing one of these deep seekers, now is the time! Fisher F75 LTD - now only $799!!!
  6. Good morning - The Gamma is one of a few Teknetics machines that is known to have good recovery speed, which is important in trashy sites and relic hunting. Discrimination isn't quite as extensive as other machines but it will work ok... just dig everything for a while to figure out what is worthwhile and what isn't. Once you have experience with it and decide this is the hobby for you, then you could always look at upgrading... and when you do there will be a bunch of us here on this site who can point you to a good performing relic machine that fits your budget.
  7. Hello fellow JGD hunt participants - I hope you are getting ready for an exciting pair of hunts! As most of you know, the soil conditions in the area of the hunt sites are such that a Pulse Induction detector has been preferred to hunt those areas... they just seem to totally ignore the mineralization of these sites. That being said, I wanted to note a few things: - we just took in a nice used Garrett ATX, which may be of interest to someone; and - we have some exceptional deals right now on Minelabs that you will not want to miss! Just give either Tony or me a call if interested... I guarantee you will like what we have to offer - and have that new high performance machine just in time for the upcoming hunts!

  8. Jim is right... contrary to what works in normal soil, in Culpeper dirt at times you can actually get better depth with a smaller coil versus a larger one. With a smaller coil, the detector "sees" less mineralization, so the effects of it are lessened somewhat. The 6x10 or an 8" generally will work better than that 15" bad boy...
  9. LOL
  10. Sounds like you have some good hunts set up, James! We would be happy to be part of them no matter how you set them up. :)

  13. Yep! GPX 5000 here... :)
  14. I'd love to join you all that weekend... but we are committed elsewhere on those days.
  15. You will want to hunt in fixed ground balance, and simply adjust the ground balance as the situation requires. It only takes a few seconds and a few pumps of the coil. If if you hunt in tracking, you can actually tune out the real deep signals which barely break the threshold. The detector will think it's a patch of mineralization and adjust accordingly.
