Game Of Odds Part 1..

Recommended Posts


I don't seem to have that issue with my ATP. Only time it masks out with iron is if both targets occupy the center of the coil the iron will dominate and you will only hear iron. Have talked to Garrett on that?

I do want people to know the ATP is not a deep machine with the stock coil but for coin shooting it is still a viable unit. Considering the release of the Simplex the ATP is not the best deal in town.

Why do you only sweep one direction over the target? I've actually found targets similar to that using the AT, where there might be a slight blip of conductive, that settles into a nice high tone when you isolate it.

Do you stand in the same spot when you swing? Think about it you take a step forward..... it is true you might have got it coming from the coin side first...The test was based on the best odds of coming across iron first. There are different senarios in detecting and this is just one of them. 

That test is a real eye opener for guys who use those detectors in iron. When the swing speed is introduced masked targets start disappearing to the detector. The user is none the wiser because he never  heard them. 

5X8 coil suffers the same fate.

I swung from nail to dime and was able to get the time pretty close and it finds the dime without issue. Only time it is blind is when the targets occupy the same detection area then iron wins. I use a rusty old square nail on the test. The same blindness is on my Tejon with the 10x12 dd. The AT series 5x8 is also a dd. Do you have or access to the concentric coils for them?

I pointed out a quirk with DD vs Concentric coils where DD coils would detect steel bottle caps (round flat steel) would ring higher and out of range of ferrous target range and end up with dimes+ but can't find the post on that.

What you show is a problem but I just can't replicate it here. 

Could emi cause that?

Are you using a buried dime? His dime is 5 inches deep, while the nail is on the surface I believe. If both the coin and the nail are in the same plane then the AT will find it.

Some people say the Equinox should outperform the AT since it costs more. I look forward to your AT versus Vanquish tests. :smile:

      Detect-ED have released an alloy Arm Cuff for the Nox.  I very much disliked my plastic arm cuff for my Nox so I ordered a metal one from Ukraine.  It's been great and a big improvement over the plastic one, it's probably not ideal for salt water use as it will eventually rust.  Detect-ED being very much focused on water hunting as he's a water hunter himself has made an alloy version.  It's looking very solid and good quality and they have a free worldwide shipping promo going at the moment for it that ends on the 2nd of February.
      https://www.detect-ed.com/collections/detecting-accessories/products/detect-ed-alloy-arm-cuff


      You can tell it will be nice and solid on the shaft.

       
      The Detect-Ed Alloy Arm Cuff is a high-quality CNC cut aluminium part, with smooth edges all round. It is designed primarily to replace the fragile plastic arm cuffs found on many metal detectors! 
      The cuff is designed to be ergonomic as it hugs the arm rather than the sloppier fit of most modern machines. The placement is not dictated by the holes on your shaft, allowing you to bolt it in your preferred position.
      We designed the arm cuff without padding so that it's compatible with submerged and wet environments. However, the low profile button heads are essentially unnoticeable on your forearm and product testers have confirmed this. It also has rounded edges for comfort

      The arm strap points are lower than some standard cuffs meaning your arm is strapped down snugly in place rather than bouncing off the walls of the cuff.
      This product comes with everything included to easily install it on your detector!

      Fits Most Metal Detectors:
      - Fits on 7/8" or 22mm diameter shaft.
      - Fits Minelab Equinox 600 & 800, Excalibur & Gold Monster
      - Fits most Whites Detectors
      - Fits most Garrett Detectors (AT Pro, Gold, Max and Ace Series)


      What's In The Box?
      - Anodized Aluminium Arm Cup and Stand
      - 2 x Aluminium Tube Clamp sets
      - 4 x 316 Marine Grade Low-Profile Stainless Bolts
      - 4 x 316 Marine Grade Nyloc Nuts
      - 1 x Webbed Velcro Arm Strap
      - 1 x Hex Key Tool
      - 1 x Spanner Tool

      A decent video comparing targets on the Vanquish Vs the Equinox.
      The Vanquish really looks like the perfect first detector for someone, easy to use, built based on the Equinox so performance is pretty damn impressive.

      I figured I should post this here as I posted the information elsewhere on the forum that's less relevant than here.
      Our extremely innovative Russian friends have managed to make a range of aftermarket coils for the Equinox, they remove the security chip out of your coil, reseal your coil and give you an adapter which then allows you to run aftermarket coils.  They make a range of sizes too.   My pick of the bunch would be the 9.5x5.5!

      That's the range of sizes and pricing in Russian currency.
      You can find out more about it here on these Russian forums, you'll have to use Google translate or something similar to read it.

      And videos from them about the coils
      and lucky last 🙂
      When nobody can do it, the Russians do and they do it well.

      Hi everyone,
      I want make me sure if my program on my Detector is properly set or..
      I own Equinox for 4 weeks and walked lot of km with it (90% of time on field). But I am still little confused about my settings to forest. I tryied with settings: field 1, 5 tone, disc -9 to 0, Rs 4 and iron bias 2. Our woods is pretty clear, so I can get more depth. (I am coin hunter)
      What I read or what I heard is that park 2 is more to depth than field 1..
      But park 2 is more for dirty locations..
      I'm from central Europe and local old silver coins are differently conductive because of their age and and size.
      what would you recommend? Park or field settings?
      I'm still trying to understand it and I'm still learning. I will be glad for your advice, I have not read anything about the forest anywhere in the topic.
      PS: sorry for my english I'm not native speaker 
       
      Thank you

      Which do you think will hit deeper on wet sand?  I'd prefer a TDIBH over a DF but I'm budget limited.
