Manufacturers Joking About Each Other (Teknetics Vs. Minelab, Battle Of The Pinpointers, Funny!) – updated!

Sometimes, the different detector manufacturers love to make jokes about each other for promotional purposes, and for us to have a good laugh. This is one funny example of that, and what do we see here under the advertisement of the new pinpointer? A little hello to Minelab! Update! Sometimes such jokes are finishing not as good as planned, but as the final result of that story – two comments...

Illegal Diggers Plundering Roman Towns In England (Illegal Detecting, News+)

Greetings fellow detectorists! Generally, when speaking about detecting, there are two kinds of people: The law-abiding “white diggers” and the “black diggers”, who don’t care about most of the rules and do their detecting at night. There is no clear “border” between the legal and illegal diggers because there are some people (especially news sites) who present almost all detectorists as “black diggers” and scare most people into thinking that...

Will The Fisher F44 Have Less Depth With A Big Coil Compared To Other Detectors? (Testing, Answer +)

Flipping through some forums about detecting, I came across one very interesting question. Its essence is that the Fisher F44 because of its power in 2 AA batteries, does not preform as well with a large coil as other detectors. Because of this I have 2 questions: How does a metal detector with a large coil lose in depth of detection when the charge in the batteries decreases? Did the engineers...

“Treasure” Rings (Diggers Story)

Here we have another quite interesting story sent to us by a digger. Enjoy! My story is about the previous seasons. It is somehow romantic and somewhat mystical.

Classics of the genre....
