Had a good day at the beach, a little windy so no water hunting.

Makro Racer and Fisher CZ3D was used on this trip.

I notice the scales are 0.01. Is it a 14 gram ring or 1.4 gm.  Whatever the weight it's still a nice find but it looks chunky enough to be heavy.

Like the early coil bolts that was made of brittle plastic and could break, some coils were made of similar material a few of them got broken coil ears and some started to peel and flake after only a few months, at least mine did as can be seen.
It was not the use of the coils that caused the plastic to deteriorate, it only made it visible after a while and a few contacts with the ground.
Having a coil cover on would have shielded it but there was none included in the purchase beside it would not have changed/improved the mixture of the plastic or braking of coil ears.
Anyone beach hunting know that coil covers are a no-no as ingress of water and fine sand will give trouble and make it hard to get the coil cover off for cleaning and when attempting to do so often result in splitting the cover.
However had a coil cover been supplied it would have been sealed to the coil before beach use.
Like a new car Tyre with a puncture, one would get it fixed at a nearby repair facility, that is if one could find such a facility that were capable and willing...... when not, one will just have to fix it oneself........ which also saves one from an "Inquisition". ;D

The later production of coils and bolts have improved to beyond any further reports on breakage.!

Ivan what was the brand and name of your spray. Probably what we need for our club 2300. The stone guards must be soft or our guests are pushing down to hard.  I know Meggie has been using it for a long time on the Sov.

My RC29 coil have developed a slight anomaly by engaging Saturation warning siren at detector switch on, it can now only be used if sensitivity is reduced to below 30 in all modes .... this has the same convenience as a car with a 3 speed gearbox where one can only use 1st gear.

Sent some videos to Nokta/Makro with the happening and was told this is an old (First) style coil that have now been improved.

Had a look for a new coil at different dealers that show pictures, only to find their RC29 coils looks just like mine .......... :'(  once bitten twice shy!

An alternative coil was sourced from Mars MD Ukraine, a 12.5x9.5"DD Tiger coil ..... like ESSO use to say after the 2Th.W W "Put a Tiger in your tank"!
Anyway a Red Racer with Tiger power, what more improvement can one do. :)

Had a few beach outings with the Red and Gold Racer.

Pictures/Videos from the outings seem to be prevented from loading.

I wonder who is fiddling with my posts and links to photobucket ???  ....... Nokta you got any ideas in this regard. :police:

A rainless PM combined with a low tide was an opportunity for a beach hunt.

Some coins, a long nicely made 925 chain with a 830 cross .....  all ready for use after a few hours in a turbo tumbler.
