If I was still using the DFX I probably wouldn't have reached my goal. Thank you.

Congrats! That is a pretty amazing number.
I told your story to my buddy who has been using the DFX (and loves it) for over a decade but keeps saying he is going to get a nox.

The nox is where it's at I've found silver where I pounded with the DFX

Nice work ! Congrats on hitting the century mark .I just picked up a Nox600 myself . It's an amazing machine . Over the years of testing different machines and coil combinations on my front lawn I had not found any signals of any kind in ages . Last evening I fired it up or a few minutes and found a tire valve at 6" and a curved rusty nail at 8" . I don't even really know what I'm doing with it yet . I have great hopes for this machine . I'm looking forward to seeing more of your posts .

If your in a trashy area listen for those high popping signal in between the trash I've found a lot of silvers and wheats doing this.
