Yes mate 19 in the pic but only 18 found by me,a local lady who was detecting nearby came over to have a listen to the 2300 and as soon she put the headphones on she pinged a piece so that's lady luck for ya.

WE'LL have to wait for summer but i reckon its a matter of time befor we see some serious
gold being found..

Hopefully i will give it a go on the CRAB hole country out at Burnies patch on sunday 6th july

there is a patch that we had the tractor over and was hit with the 45 and 5000 so hopefully we will see if anything still remains..the boys from roebourne hit this area hard and won a fair bit of gold--should be interesting

the only comment with character is the fact that the machine becomes heavy after a while for some people so I have an old harness and a new bungy cord for the next mob that want to test the machine free of charge befor I sell it off as second hand..open to very good offers..no gold kickers need apply.

Post by goldstrijk on Sun 20 Jul 2014, 11:05 am

Hello all!
Went out for a first trial with the SDC2300 yesterday in a little known area
The machine is very impressive, no gold found, but small lead shot down to about 8"
It was easy to set up and the signals were very clear
The only couple of down sides, was the coil seems to change angle very easily and the arm rest is a nightmare
I saw an arm rest modification on another forum, so will try that out
Madmax 800, I'm interested in your harness, tried the GPX harness, hip stick and bungy, was ok, but needs the bungy kept away from your fingers

I see people are whinging about this that and anything else they can voice there disbelief about the 2300--this pocket rocket was out in the paddock again today and yesty arvo and I didn't have a problem with the strap-the arm rest-and pulling the machine over--mind u I didn't have the head phones on this time.

even with the head phones on --once I put the detector down and pin pointed were the target was --I simply released the first shaft clip and retracted the shaft to get easier access to the machine--not rocket science but some jokers out there on other forums just whinge for the sake of having a go--FSS they don't even have a few bob to buy one and don't even want to own one yet blaa blaaa blaaaa--spare me lord.

The smart ones are out there quietly doing there thing and finding gold.

These machines will find good gold eventually but for the time being its keeping everyone who owns one busy finding gold.


u definitely need a harness and I have ordered 30 and will put them up for sale in the Commercial section..

Good to hear ML have another winner with the 23  cheers 

The small gold still pays good divvies and i aint a snob  Razz 
The only reason i'll not be gettin one is that i basically already have one "ie" GPX5000 fine gold timing, and the 5k takes other coil sizes.
Now if i was a new chum or even an old hand gettin back in the game i'd be gettin one shipped out ASAP to my place.
Who gives a rats ring about ergonomics or the controls on the side etc... if it gets the gold.. Job done  Cool 

Ray -  Pity im not up your way coz i'd love to take the Bluedog out for a swing  Very Happy

as pete said --the dam thing finds gold--end of story.

i sold a heap of detectors last week --people are quietly going about their business without too much adoo.

have a 2300 going to nullagine for 3 weeks so will see what they pull with it.

Ray,
I wasn't knocking the detector as such, it is very impressive.
That said, members should be able to convey their observations and what works for one doesn't work for another.
I think the armrest needs a bit of modification, which can be done fairly simply
Also a harness would extend the swinging time for most of us
Didn't the hip stick come out for the 5K to achieve that?
I'm not arguing about the merits of this machine and I think it will prove itself like the 5K has paeirgcy vp

Hi All,

Try using the 11" DD coil in Cancel with a GPX and compare to the SDC, I still don't see the need for one yet, don't forget to crank the gain flatout

Hey Ray
All respect to you!!!
I believe the complaints to be legitimate & points that SHOULD have been considered during the testing of this unit (if it was field tested PROPERLY).
You see I recently (last week) was camped with a guy who had one.
The very first time I picked it up to get a feel for it, I was astounded with the way this $4000 detector felt, it was crap & flopped around on my arm at the end of each swing (my forearm is smaller than the owners) the folding cuff's are to blame here!!!
I noticed that the sliding section of the shaft's had some sideways movement too & yes the weight of this unit is all out the front, it needs a bungy.
One very poor design feature that came to light after the guy had been using it for a week plus was that the rear of the skid plate & the coil connection knuckle where wearing out I kid you not this will be a huge impact in future.

All that being said, It does an amazing job at finding tiny gold "BLOODY AWESOME"
Old mate also had an issue with it shutting down, due to possible loose battery contacts & tonight I got an email saying he was going to Cairns due to the charger crapping itself.

Like I said, good at finding "Gold" but I believe that M/L have overlooked a number of important issue's, I also think that it is overpriced.
Do I want one, DAMN RIGHT I do!!! but with the issue's & @ $4000 not likely ATM.
We all have our opinions & this is mine!!!
cheers
Lee
