Had to Sell my Detector

#1
I'm heart broken:( I had to sell my GTP 1350 due to my arthritis, and with it's weight I just couldn't swing it. But I see an ACE 350 in my future. Alot of people might not think that 1.2 pounds is much of a difference, but when your shoulders are as bad as mine it makes all the difference in the world! I have not been out in 2 years, but I am totally ready. Nice to be back friends :)

The Ace series is very light and easy to swing. Pair that with a Swingy Thingy and you'll be set to hunt comfortably.

I'm with you on that. RA is some bad stuff. My right shoulder is plum worn-out. Haven't been digging in a while, but the shoulder hurts alot. Sometimes I think it's better to dig more to keep it "active". Not digging makes it hurt, too...:)

Just checked out the Swingy Thingy and now I am really excited! Looks like it will make a world of difference for me. Too bad Winter has arrived:(

Thank all of you, I really missed coming here! BTW what is a Swingy Thingy? Do you have a link to it? :)
I'm sure you can google that or check with our sponsors. I got mine from Kellyco, but it's not a "Swingy Thingy"(trademark name). It's basically the same thing. It's a harness that goes over your shoulders and has a bungee cord that hooks on your chest, and goes to your detector shaft(comes with a clamp for that end). The harness supports the weight of your machine, so all you have to do is swing it.

Stick to the regular coil, its not too heavy...if you must, the sniper coil is light as heck...but covers less on each swing...

For a moment, I thought you were speaking Scottish, then my brain started to work and I realized you said "kitted" and not "kilted". I don't know? That's what I read.... LOL

Welcome back timmyster, glad you are back on TQ Forum...

Great that you are able to get out there again. I love the 350 and I too have had some shoulder issues. Funny, it seems to help my shoulder not to wear the forearm strap, but then again I might be crazy. I wish you the best with the 350 and congrats again on your return to the site and the hobby.
