One time very long ago, i dreamed about having a gadget which i could open and it shows you your location, different labels, and more. Now this is all possible, and available. There are different apps and other software for the smartphone which are good, but as for me, the best program in my practical experience, is the Locus Map PRO for Android. I bought the full version to have 100%...

The New 13″ Karma DD-Coil (Cockroach Vs. Spider)

Finally i received my long-awaited upgrade to my Fisher F75 – a huge 13-inch DD-coil. And the size of the thing! The look of the box and the coil deserve all five stars. The shape is round and quite stylish, it kind of resembles spider legs. The coil has a remarkable bolt fastener. You turn the bolt until it clicks, and then it stands in its place. This kind of fixation prevents the bolt...

Digging Silver With The Fisher F75 (Photos+)

A Tsar silver coin is a quite rare find. More often we come across local Livonian, Swedish and Polish-Lithuanian silver coins. As a rule, they have a slightly larger size. This time I was lucky to find a real flake. We were digging on the site of an old country road. At first glance, the place quite unremarkable. The road and the next field, divided by stone walls in the 1970s...

Starting The Season With The F75! (Amazing Find, Photos+)

Foggy spring morning in a field with the Fisher F75 The early spring in our Nordic country is characterized by low grass, cold weather and wind. Not too good weather, of course, but the northerners are not so easy to stop! I began to recall the places where to couldn’t detect in the sommer. The first stop I made was on a plowed field, where there used to be a little village,...

Viking Ships With Crew Found In Salme, Estonia (Real Find, + Photos)

Estonia is a very nice country, especially because it is full of finds;). There is not much gold, but there is a lot of silver and Viking treasures. Detecting in Estonia is allowed, but you will have to take special courses (very useful and interesting!), And then pass an exam and you will get a license.

German WW2 Dog Tags (Identifying Finds, Photos+)

On the photo above you can see four tags from the 118th stationary artillery battalion found in a bundle. These are so-called “unused”. These tokens were not given out. Today i am going to tell you about dog tags. In the German terminology this object is titled Erkennungsmarke. Any self-respecting WW2 digger has eventually found a German badge, and sometimes more than one. In the memory of many of us, this...

Steiner Binoculars Wildlife XP 10×26 – Satisfied! (Review, Photos+)

Hello friends! I thought back at the end of last season that it would be fun to get some binoculars to myself (to quietly watch my neighbors (joking)), to watch during detecting what is happening around me. Very often I get worried about my car, I often leave it somewhere in the bushes or a bit in the line, so that people don’t see it and start wondering: “Who is...

Minelab Safari – A Professional Metal Detector For A Beginner (Review, Photos+)

Greetings reader! One of my fellow detectorists bought himself a Minelab Safari and shared his experience and review of this interesting and not very common metal detector. I thank him for the review and give him the word: What kind of metal detector is the Minelab Safari? Well, finally I got my hands on a professional level device with a rather big price of 700 euros and a so-called model range...
