Recommended Posts

Hello, I started metal detecting in the late 1980s and since that time using a Heath Robinson detector right up to present day with a top of range Minelab, although I do very little now and just have my Golden Mask +1 UK, Yesterday I spied the above for sale and could not resist buying๐Ÿ™„, and trying out, they are P Iย  induction detectors that go very deeeeep, ๐Ÿค” , the nearest one I had to this was an Arado if spelling right, and that was a Pi , but I shan't be joining bomb disposal, going to find a beach and give it a whirl , it all seems to work ok albeit indoors,ย  oh will have to use a shoulder strap ๐Ÿ™„ the army lads and lassies must have strong arms, ๐Ÿ˜, will try on the farm but looking at some beaches, South Coast, ??, any ideas, I have tried Bognor Regis, but mum would not dig the holes ๐Ÿ˜†( joking) so any PW members detect ?, sorry can't do a photo ?๐Ÿ™„cheers

The army are currently using the Ebinger EBEX 720.

We used the 4c for locating buried ordnance for disposal.

Hello, ok I will check that out, I just bought the detector to have a play with and dare say will sell it on after,
