Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED! More QED users reporting in! QED users are reporting that they do not find "bias drift" an issue!
The QED pictured is backward compatible with the current QED and has been designed and made by a member here. The firmware and circuit are identical with the current version except for a change in the face plate and control box. Changing to this configuration will NOT void the warranty when performed by the control box designer as it has been endorsed, approved and authorized by the QED manufacturer. The 4th button will not work at this time as the  firmware update for that has not been created yet and when its available will be provided free of charge (other than postage costs)by BW. QED Detector ,latest updates board is only available to registered forum members.

Goldsearch Australia has been appointed the Australian Distributor for the QED. QED info on the Goldsearch website has been updated.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully!

Pinpointing exactly where a target is with this type of coil can be difficult and this fella was way off the mark when he dug his hole to that depth.

  I have met Jagger and been detecting with him.  He is not a liar and he did find the nugget as he says.  So stop saying he did not find the nugget with the coil he said at the depth he said.  Why do you always look for a reason to put down a Minelab machine Doug?

Billy, always so quick to defend the bullshyzer.
Make a real hero of yourself and post a video of an AIR TEST of a 0.8g nugget being detected at 17".
After you fail at that perhaps you can have a go at Steve Herschbach's claim of a 2.5oz at OVER 2.5 feet.

Yes I too would be interested to see a video of an air test result on that 0.8g nugget and the timing /settings he used.

Hopefully he also then name the coil size correctly as a 17x13 coil.

While Billy is in a mood to defend bullshyzer, perhaps he would like to have a go at defending this load.

Hi Guys,

Well from what I have seen and found with the evo coils, nothing surprises me! Most times I have been left shaking my head at the size of the hole for the tiny piece that has come out. My Mrs found a tiny bit(.2~.3g??) using the 12" evo in a spot that I had done over previously on many occasions and it was probably about 4~5" down. Also when I tried out the 17x13 I went to another spot that I had found a few in the past and found a wiry .2g bit about 4 or more inches down. Admittedly the original signal was sweet FA but I remember being gobsmacked by the depth. I had previously done this spot over with the sadie and other coils.

Cheers Mick

Yes Mick those depths you speak of are realistic and are at the depths that my 12" Evo is capable of.

Recently out of curiosity did some air testing on some nuggets with a 7000 and with the 12" Evo on my 5000 which easily matched the 7000.

Although I was only comparing High Yield / Difficult on the 7000 to Fine Gold with my 5000, both detectors only got 6" on a roundish 0.3 gram nugget.

Even on a 2.3 gram nugget both detectors got no where near 17" and I doubt Sens/Extra or Normal would be much better.

Anyway Sens/Extra and Normal are out of the question on my goldfield and the fella with the 7000 had to use his Difficult setting to cope with the mineralisation.

How about we wait for Billy to reproduce "the feat" in a video.
Billy knows how such speculation and bullshyzer could be quashed forever but he is not likely to suggest it.

...flat wound coil ? My own flat wound picks up small bits at twice the range of the ML "reference" coil ... does not extend to big targets at more than 1.5 coil diameters away though.

Almost tempted to buy one an take it apart to see what all the fuss is about. scared

  Send me over a video camera Bugwhiskers since you are calling me out.  I will take a video for you.  Or the other way you and Doug always say "prove me wrong" with proof.  I am sure you can not prove me wrong, as I can not prove you wrong in your statements over the years of stuff you and Doug have claimed.  Butt I bet you will be very upset over someone asking the same of you.  Settle down and get another hobby that keeps your blood pressure normal.  Same for Doug, keep off the forums you visit that upset ya my frien.  You both are too old like me to create such a rokus. 

   I will send ya my address since you are so worried about a video where you can send me a video camera to satisfy your obsession.  Just send me a PM.

So Mr Billy, you want to cop out by saying you don't have a video camera or even a cell phone with a video camera. Of course everyone is going to believe that.
What could Minelab do for consumers that would end speculation over target detection distances and improvements of new models over old models forever?

What you forget is that their are people on this forum that have over the years done an enormous amount of testing of ML detectors and coils  using natural nuggets at test sites and a variety of  air testing. Some here have also found an enormous amount of gold over 40 years of detecting and hence know what is possible and not possible in terms of depth.eg testing has shown that one nugget of around 30 grams could NOT be detected in a 14" test hole with a ML GPX  4500  in enhance!! shocked In addition BW has designed and built his own Pi detector's and also knows from his testing what is possible and what is not possible.All would agree that a typical 0.8 grammer  detected at 17”is highly unlikely and probably impossible. It most likely is another case of pinpointing error where the nugget was in the side wall and was dug past and then fell into the bottom of the hole  or that another target was overlying the nugget and this was what was initially detected.

  No video in my flip phone.  No video camera either.  Why do you think I asked you for one since you seem so focused on it.  Will you send me one to satisfy your need?  If not please drop the subject.  Maybe Doug will loan you one to send me.

Sorry Billy this is just  a cop out!!!! I am sure that you or the tester can arrange to borrow a video camera or a camera able to take videos.
