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!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"
"My QED is terrific. Lightweight, very sensitive and screams at me when it hits any target. The Detect shaft and the 11" ultra sensing coil is a top quality fitout. I attached an external speaker which added under 200gms of weight in total and still remains very well balanced so i never feel fatigued after many hours of swinging."

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/ is the  Australian distributor for the QED.
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! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the approved retailer and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

Why not  join this forum and talk directly to the designer of the QED  here rather than relying on the uniformed  B/S and waffle and lies being posted by the patent parrot and others on the pox, liars and abomination "forum"?

I did but so far all I get is referred to Dean at Goldsearch Australia or insinuations that I'm batting for Minelab? It's of little wonder people resort to uniformed B/S and waffle when straight answers can't be had here and hard questions or a difference of opinion is met with a stock standard paranoia that the poster is a Minelab lap dog or sycophant. Quite ironic actually after realising the number of lap dogs and sycophants here! some of whom like to label others as such. As a whole this forum has proved less useful than the ones infected by the uninformed B/S and waffle. This site is no better than the very things members here bitch about pro Minelab sites except this is all one way QED waffle. You guys aren't impartial. Your exactly the same as the guys you hate that worship Minelab. Different Idol is all. good luck

Most of BW's time in involved in making QED's! Each are hand made and if he was to try and respond to all questions then he would little time to make them!!!!!
Most of the field testing and gold finding has bben done by Dean so he is the logical person to answer many of the questions.

Hi Bugs (and Dean)

I have a QED on order and paid for in full. Recently I spoke with Dean at length and found him very courteous and willing to be helpful.  To date i have never held a metal detector in my hand before so i am excited because i want to enjoy gold detecting and also want to report to this forum my experiences (good/bad).

I canvassed the idea of travelling to Victoria/Dunolly/GoldSearch to get some proper induction lesson(s) before returning to my home and commencing fossicking in my region.

Do you have any thoughts about accommodating a newbie (like myself) to getting a thorough lesson or two?

Kindest regards
AL

Hi algore_rhythm,

If you're new to using a detector then it's going to be a huge learning curve. I took up detecting a year and a half ago and still feel have a long way to go. After a year I went and did some training and it certainly helped me. Finding gold is not as easy as some people think it's going to be.

Seeing that you're buying a machine that few know how to use at the moment you can't just go and do training with just anyone. Fortunately, the guy (Reg) that did some recent testing (reported his use of the QED) happens to offer training. Here are some links to his website and to some posts about his gold prospecting past. (some nice nuggets to see)

Hi Jin Thanks for sharing your early experiences with gold detecting and for the links you shared too very helpful indeed. 

Naturally it will be a HUGE learning curve for me and i expect zilch results initially but hope to get something tangible from digging within weeks of trial and error and i suspect that i will ask Reg if he can take me out for a few hours. Tuition does look expensive but no different to seeing a specialist medical practitioner and i think it will be a wise investment long term than just walking around aimlessly wasting time and travel expenses.

About headphones. I use Sennheiser HD25 they are 70ohms and are great for work in a music studio but will they be suitable for detecting? The cable which is around 2metres long will have to be clamped to around 1 metre in length otherwise i will be tripping over or getting snagged on branches etc. Perhaps an external speaker attached with velcro to the module might be an option so do you suggest that would be benefical Jin?

Cheers Al

Hey Bugs.
I bought the QED through Goldsearch a couple of weeks ago but i just noticed i have received a refund from Goldsearch for my QED purchase without any explanation.

Can i re-order and pay for it in a different way that suits you?

Contact Dean at Goldsearch not BW. I have no idea why this has happened and i doubt the BW does either!

Doug / BW, Is there a known time frame for Mode 9?  I'm hoping it can be added to my machine (taking delivery in April (ish))
Dean has answered every question I had and been very helpful.
Any chance accessing QED owner pages beforehand?

 When any  QED software updates become available they will be provided free of charge to all QED owners on return to base. Not sure when mode 9 update will be available at this stage.

Hi Bugs, Doug (and also i extend my courtesies to all members here).

Earlier in this thread stated that my order was refunded. Moving forward i am still very keen to own one or two (one for my wife). When i went back to the Goldsearch site i noticed payment method was changed from paypal to Bankswift/Transfer and tonight i have observered that the Paypal method is preferred again!!

My point here is generally Paypal take a percentage (upto 8%) transaction fee and on $1370 that is approx $109. Therefore who is absorbing that fee? You Bugs or Goldsearch?

My suggestion would be to allow buyers to pay with Visa, Mastercard, Money order or Bank transfer and avoid Paypal except international orders otherwise your profit margins will severely be compromised. 

Regards

Hi Davent.
Yes i did speak with Dean around 3 weeks ago. His explaination for the refund was that the GST conponent had not been factored into the price (Hmmmm!!!). You would have to be a very financially fluid company to reject an $1800 order plus $53 postage without ringing your customer and asking for a bit more (10%) to see the order through to completion. What i think might have been closer to the truth was the availability of the shaft and 12" NF Coil. Perhaps problem solving and overcoming a sales hurdle  may not be a strength at Goldsearch at this time.
Nonetheless, Wifey and i are still keen to go ahead.

Regards

Hi Bugs

Hey Bugs.
With the Easter holidays (April 14 onwards) coming up soon our plan is to spend a full week around Glendon camping grounds, near Warwick Qld. It is a popular spot for many types but especially prospectors as im sure you know. Its expected to be busier there for a few weeks more because some folk have had to change holiday destinations since Cyclone Debbie passed through today.

Wouldnt be great exposure for QED if someone could be up there showning it around to other propectors over Easter period? i reckon it would

Perhaps someone who has one already will be there aswell and that would be good too. Anyhow Bugs is it possibe for you get a QED upto me quickly? You have phone number and Doug has too so have a think and pick up the phone and call smile

Ok, so first post.
Got my QED up and running and took it out the bush yesterday. I'm new to detecting and while I got the machine ton settle down and just sweetly hum along one thing kept worrying me, is it quiet because I've got it running well or have I just dumbed it down so much it's hardly picking anything up.
Modes 1-3 were noisy but I could turn down gain and have the bias in the centre and a few tweaks and it went ok, I could also run it in mode 8 with the gain higher, lean the bias on the lower side and turn the volume up.
So basically I guess I'm asking would it be better to run the lower modes with the setting lower or a higher mode but with things like gain higher? Is there any one setting that you really want to try and have as high or low as possible?
Also the SMF setting, under what circumstances should I adjust this and under the circumstances do you want it higher or lower?
Sorry for the huge first post but I'm really keen to get my head around this new machine and finding real world use info is hard. Thanks.
