    Double 11 you get 22. Double 22 you get 44. F11, F22, F44.The buttons on the F44 are almost a mirror of the Land Ranger Pro. Including Mode, Menu, Ground Grab and arrows.Where the LRP has a up and down arrow for Menu, I'm assuming hitting menu moves the highlighted lines and the arrows control intensity. They use 3v (two AA batteries) over 9v. I'll bet the menu options are same as the LRP, with maybe the FeTone Iron Audio feature. I also believe that the segments are divided into something like the 43 arc line for Euro customers. Let's see if I am right.

    It's nice to know. There comes a point at some places that it's not about promoting the hobby as much as how much can be made off of it. The guy making the Viking made it clear that he didn't make much building them, and was more of a labor of love. TreasureNet made it clear if he want to share that labor, “show me the money”.

    It came today.It actually took 5 days to get here from BC, Canada. So shipping is faster than the probable delivery time on the ad.The look is like a Lesche in the pics, but the Viking is made with heavier steel, slightly thicker and weighs 50% more than a Lesche. The confidence in the blade seems high, like it isn't going to break or bend no matter if you used it to pry a car door open. The handle is comfortable, and the side teeth are almost saw like When I slide my finger over my Lesche blade, the notches don't seem as sharp or protruding as the Viking. It may be a few days before I can take it to the dirt and see how it handles.It came with a "hammer loop" type belt sheath.Note to tink: you ain't gonna bend this thing. ;D

    LOL………..I'll be able to tell you more Dec 5-8. That's the timeline to get it here from Canada. I don't know if you saw it, but I put the link under the picture. I had a couple of people say it was too expensive. $79 shipped. But my thinking is we dig dirt half the time in this hobby. Why spend hundreds even thousands on detectors and coils, yet go cheap on diggers? If it makes life easier to get the goodies, it's worth the extra bucks. :))

    I couldn't see them either. If they are the AKA, been there. The Signum is one heck to a detector. They use a metering system that is second to none called a hodograph. Kind of beyond my price range, but some consider them the deepest detectors with the fastest recovery rate.http://akadetectors.com/products.php?page=aka-signum-mft-7272mAll the video's are at the bottom of the left menu.

    You get what you pay for. Not bad, not the best.First, they are very light. When wearing them, you can barely feel them. The ears pads do not squeeze your head like it's trying to pop it. They sit comfortabley "on" the ears. The only drawback is that the ear cups do not turn to match any angle your ears may produce.Second, they do not isolate outside sounds. The ear cups are a mesh with foam filling. The mesh allows outside surrounding noise to be heard easily. This may be an advantage if you wish to converse while hunting, or if someone yells at you from a distance. But you in no way feel you have cut out the outside world, so to speak.Thirdly the sounds from the detector are clear a crisp. Sounding as well as my Killer Bees used to. The main drawback on the ears cuffs is the volume control. The know is the large center peice you see in the pic, with little ridges and an indentation to place a finger. If you wear gloves, the volume is close it impossible to adjust. It doesn't move easily to begin with, and one must use a tight thumb and forfinger to push down and turn it as t only sticks up 1/8 of an inch above the actual earcup. Also, the wires coming off of the head strap to the earcups may bother some. A tiny thin coiled wire that looks like if you accidentally caught it on something, might break easier than most.Even after critiquing them, I do like them. They are more comfortable than my Treasure Wise and Bounty Hunter, but not as comfortable on the ears as my Killer Bees (though the Treasure Ears are much lighter and deserves kudos for what they provide in such a light package).

    Really nice. Good going, tink. RW Tango's hover close to the 1K dollar mark.

    Mark,SC Dirt Digger has asked you to contact him on Finds if you wish to sell it. I bought his Whites CoinGT as his wife is petite and it was too heavy for her. We've talked and I suggested a Gamma for her. She's kind of "getting into" detecting. He lives in Columbia and needs a unit that will GB to salt and is light. If you contact him, mention me (Hightone on the Finds forum).  He's retired like us and is a nice guy.

    I have been using a TX2002 and of course I have a BH/Fisher pinpointer that has to actually touch the metal before it detects it. ::) Check this out.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHZbxzYSwJ4Is it as good as a Garrett Propointer?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQizivRZtp0
