I need a new ctx coil, the big one, give or take its about $480 NZD.
I intend to find that $480 this summer between Labour day and Queens birthday.
1- I must hunt at least once a week and I must find at least a home coin every hunt.
2- the home coin doesn’t have to be a spendie
3- gold and silver by-catch doesn’t count.
First hunt this morning netted $11.80 and 6 of those annoying Chinese coins that are turning up everywhere nowadays, there would have been more spendies but too many crazy drunks around my spots.
Will try again later today in daylight.
Running total $11.80
Gotta love silver by catch, I have to break into my spendies now as I have a crack in my coil which is now water logged can still use but pull tabs read 91 instead of 78 and I can’t turn up the sensitivity.
Me being just a little Scottish decided that coil covers we’re too expensive so I cut ice cream container lids to the profile of the bottom of the coil and using wide black tape I tape them on…works a treat.
@Muftin obviously the most important thing is to not cause any damage to the playground.
So I will only scrape away the bark as far as the weed mat. With my regular playgrounds I endeavour to remove every target that I can.
Targets under the weed matting stay where they are.
Even in playgrounds and on beaches I refill my holes like I was never there.
It pays to be very careful while hunting in playground bark as I find some truly horrible items in playground bark even used Hypodermic needle’s and fishhooks.
Best spots are under the swings, monkey bars and flying foxes.
If I am not finding zipper pulls it’s a pretty good sign someone else has searched the playground recently.
Been on the road with very limited options and time for detecting, some beautiful beaches however the sand is very deep and clean.
Suspect some dedicated local detectorists clean up the place.Running total $18.10
