I think you might be surprised by the weight of the Safari after having a break. I always used to tease some of the members for being whimps moaning about the weight but Like you I had to have a 3 month break.
Thought my arm was going to drop off 1st time out and thatís when I had to admit,,,,,,this is a monster.
I went for the Deus and it was a pleasure to use. There wasnít a lot of competition though. Now youíve got a choice with Minelab joining in come December. Now thereís a thought. I reckon you could have the best of both worlds with their new kid on the block. Joan Allen are taking orders in advance (I believe) might be worth a look.
Hope you find something nice tomorrow.

Don't you just hate it when this happens?
                                                                  Well Val, it looks very much as though I'm going to have to agree with your advice and wait to see how the new MineLab Equinox detector is received by the general detecting fraternity. Interestingly; I have just been informed that LP now only have one Quest Q40 in stock after having restocked but will not be restocking the Q40 when the remaining one is gone. But they will be stocking the MineLab Equinox when it is eventually released.

Yesterday I gave Talacre a second run for it's money and was a little more successful and having used my bungee harness found it a wee bit less stressful. After the first time out I rolled out of the car at home and every joint, muscle, and sinew just didn't want to work and when it did it hurt. Getting better all the time now; just need to follow a womans advice and take it easy! Wink

I think the main problem is our age Chris. We just donít Ďcome backí as quick as we used to.
In my case I was grounded for 3 months but not actually laid up. This is what surprised me the most. I wasnít any less active in the home environment but did little walking.
Just a simple case of DVT (Thrombosis ) so the confinement was Ďjust in caseí  Roll Eyes
We donít realise how much we use some muscles till we donít, you know what I mean.
All we can do is try to compensate.
My leg strength has never been the same since and I only have so much energy these days. Hence my decision to hang up my boots. I do still walk the dogs (not so far) and look longingly at the fields I once walked. Iíll never look at a field the same way again  Cry

Sorry to hear that Val.

My wife came down with a dvt three years ago and had all those injections in the tummy stuff and recovered nicely but recently suffered a second one that spread from her lower leg to her groin area. Presently back and forth to the hospital for tests and assessments for suitable treatment but presently avoiding "Warfarin" because it conflicts with other medication that she takes and apparently the darned stuff can be offset by vitamin K in some vegetables. So at the moment they have her on an alternative anticoagulant.

Your right; this getting older isn't the bees knees but when we consider the alternative I suppose that it isn't too bad, is it? What are you doing to fill the gap presented by your stopping detecting? I do hope that you are going to stay on here and torment us lesser mortals! Smiley
