P.I. in the sky? Maybe not!

11 Nov

I love metal detecting. I love metal detecting with my XP Deus. Since I’ve had this machine, I’ve had no desire for another. Yet, in the back of my mind I’ve always wanted to try a Pulse Induction (P.I.) machine.

The thing was, everybody and their brother kept saying that using a P.I. machine in a park was going to drive me to drink. I believed them and so I put the P.I. out of my mind. Recently however, I saw a video of a guy using a combination of a Very Low Frequency (VLF) machine and a PI machine to great effect while hunting a private yard. Then, Garrett released the ATX, their new PI machine. The idea of using a PI at a park began to come back to me. Now, I just read a review of the ATX that tells me it is time to dive into the time domain.

The review was written by someone who hunts almost exactly the way I do. He has been using the ATX on heavily mineralized soil in city parks and has began achieving success. Now, I know I am just getting to know the 11″ coil on the Deus but I definitely have sites where the ATX will compliment the Deus very well.

Although not inexpensive, the ATX is within reach. I may have to sell a few or all of my finds to finance it but I think I can do it. Maybe by March and ready for the Spring. I think I can! I think I can!

***I just realized that I may have given the erroneous impression that I will replace Maurice with Joe. No, no. no. I’m keeping Maurice forever. Joe will be an additional member of Team PullTabMiner***

Meet P.I. Joe!

Thank you for looking!

      Thanks man! I still have to figure out a way to put the money together for it and then convincing the wife that indeed, the new detector is a necessity.

        HAHAH I know how that is. I’m trying to get an AT Pro, and the wife is just like “W H Y?” lol

    I think you should Pimp Maurice out. I know more than one person that would like to fool around with her for awhile!

    give it 12 months, and in the mean time keep the research up, push the limits of maurice, and keep the posts coming.

      Thanks for stopping by bacardi54. Yeah, I am not giving up my beloved Deus, I may have given that impression with the post but what I want is an additional tool and I think the ATX fits the bill. It is very likely that the ATX will have to wait a few months. Maybe in the Spring.

        have you seen recent post on youtube from our neighbor down in OK something like metaldetecting history. He was excited but warned this may not be the machine for someone who enjoys our type of searching. I will be waiting for his next post using the machine.
