Regis,some great feedback on the Sanke coil on the GMP,i really like my Snake coil on my Trident11 not sure if you have every tried one on a 4 pin Laser/Tesoro machine but you probably have =))

Mine stays on the Trident all the time these days,looking at getting one for my T2 as well,that will then become a superb combination.

Look forward on further reviews on how it performs on the foreshore,excuse the pun but keep us in the loop as they say.Can you also send a image of that TDI coil please mate ??

Found lots of coins around 1 pound maybe not worth mentioning hollow gold ring remains I think and this H.O.W. ? badge which maybe similar to Alcoholic anonymous.

I am well aware the erosion play a role regarding the unearthing of finds on the foreshore so that s why I am always cautious before rating a machine .....the GMP is a great machine anyway.

Enjoy

That HOW badge took me back, I dont think its connected as I dont remember there being badges. When I was kid there was an excellent tv programme called HOW. It had Jack Hargreaves, Fred Dineage and a woman called Bunty.

They used to ask questions and then explain the answers. It was a truly brilliant programme and Jack Hargreaves was awesome, he went on to present another programme called Out Of Town where he basically sat in a shed and explained things, a lot like explaining what finds are on here, the man was a legend!

Blimey,that a good old trip down memory lane,must admit old Jack Hargreaves was a legend in my eyes at the time,Out of Town was another classic,the woman presenter was 'Bunty James' by the way.

Late afternoon tide lots of hot rocks and other annoying buzz but by going slowly and narrow sweep I managed to have fun.To be honest I got now the same amount of outing(in hours) than with the elliptical HF and I got a better feeling with this Combo.Found this ring waiting for an ID on Instagram...may be modern
