Well, I've got to be honest here.

I've been detecting for some 37 years, and I have to admit, I've never "taken"too a detector so quickly as the Tarsacci!

So simple to navigate, no silly sub-menus, such a pleasure to work with.

managed to get about 4hours in, before heavy rain arrived and had to abort.

I simply did a Salinity Balance,, came in around 28, GB was between 850-890, 12kHz, TrH -4, Sens 5, Mix Mode...I was searching on a oil seed rape stubble field. 

Very stable machine, no EMI issues, quite simply a pleasure to use!

mixed bag of non-ferrous finds, only a couple of nails catching me out!,,, great depth .

Didn't use the pin-pointer,, old trick of "wiggling the Coil" back towards your feet from the target,, when signal disappears, target was directly below the front tip of the Coil,,, worked every time!

OK ,, nothing really interesting found, but great fun!

I just know that the Tarsacci is going to be undoubtedly, one of the best detectors I've ever used!,, and I can't fault it in any way,,looking forward to getting out again early next week!

regards

Dave

      How many of MDT users like the tones of disc mode?   I don’t like it. It sounds like a toy.   Mixed mode is what I use.

      The MDT 8000 has an IP68 rating - up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. I’d call that more a wading detector than a mask & snorkel detector. On the other hand, I’d bet the MDT is at least as waterproof as an Equinox, if not more so.  I don’t think any of these so-called 10 foot detectors have a genuine waterproof rating exceeding IP68, simply based on the coil and headphone connectors being employed
      The question being, how deep for how long? Who, if anyone, has had the MDT submerged for more than a few hours? I’d assume that simply wading using the supplied headphones, with controls submerged nor more than a foot or two, would be good almost indefinitely? Though technically that’s not what the rating says. Up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.
      Anyone doing fully submersible? I just missed on a used set of Tony Eisenhower phones for the MDT, so I know that they at least are being made for the MDT. Is anyone else making underwater phones for the unit? I’ve got a set of Minelab yellow Koss I’ve considered converting, but need to prove I’d actually be sticking my head in the water more than I’m doing now before I’d go that route.
      The machine appears tight enough. The only thing I’d wish for off hand is that Dimitar double the number of threads on the battery cap. They seem sufficient, but just barely, and a few more turns would add some psychological safety at least.

      Thanks!
