Well, I thought it was a remarkably honest video coming as it does straight from the manufacturer. Some people don’t like the nail board test for various reasons but it does at least provide a standardized test where few exist. Anyway, I thought Tom did an excellent job with no attempt to sugar coat - well done.

I agree. has anyone done any videos of other detectors using the monte board? Do you ever use the monte board?

There are videos using different detectors using Monte's nail board test (calabash digger, Keith Southern to name of couple) on Youtube.

I use Monte's nail board trying different size and types of coils and how the coils separate iron from a good target. It also gives you an idea of what type of response to expect or listen for when using different detectors, customize programs and settings and coils in a iron infested site. You can use other targets ( buttons, jewelry, bullets etc.) to see how your detector and coil setup responds to those targets.

As Steve H. said it provides a standardized test not 100% full proof (different types of nails, trash, mineralization etc.) that you may encounter out in the field that will mask targets.

.For the 2D nailboard test, the size of the coil has a significant effect on the results ... 11 "I have bad results in the 2D nailbord test" Coils 9 ", and I have less than good results in this test ... In my the 3D-deep separation test, coils Under 9" they have bad results and on the other hand coils 9" and more have good and excellent results in the 3D test .., - here is also the height of the coil above the nails, most of the detectors work well from 0-15,20 cm above the nails, except is Tecnetics G2- 13 "ultimate - the 0-20cm does not produce a positive signal signal, it starts to pass such a 3D test and at a height of 20-25cm above the nails with a very high separation is good for detection in winter ... when it's snow-...Detectors in my 2D naiboard test and 3D test: Whites SpectraV3 -4x6" ,6x9"eclipse,8x6 "sef, 10"dd whites,12x10"sef,6x10" mars sniper coil,,...Teknetics G2 - 3.5x 6.5" nel snake ,11"dd ,13"ultimate coil,..Golden mask coin killer 15khz-5"spider,9"spider coil,.... Rutus Optima- V.2-16 khz DD23CM, DD29cm coil, rutus Argo V.3 6.6khz..- DD29 cm coil,....                                                            If you are testing the detectors in the nailbord test, you will notice that almost all detectors have the problem of passing 4th in coin position number 2 ... detectors with fast reset recovery delay do not keep, Whites Spectra V3 with recovery delay setting 45 or more it goes very all right.

      What kind of batteries ya'll use? I used to buy nothing but Duracell rechargeable, then in the last year I couldn't find any. I just bought some Rayovac with a charger, but they don't seem to hold a charge. I charged them, put them in, they showed full charge as I hunted for about an hour, then the next day only see two dots on the power gauge. I recharged them hoping they needed a break in, but they did the same thing. Now I have used them for 3 days, with only two dots showing, they don't seem to be going any lower, but I don't trust them. I just did a search and found a bunch of Duracells, I might of been looking for the same charger I used to have, that died, and couldn't find it. I hate to go spend more on a different brand...I didn't notice until now, the rechargeable's are 1.2 volt, whereas the regular are 1.5 volt, would that make a difference?
       
       I don't want a battery pack, at least not a NiCad...

      Well I received my December 2017 mag from Lost Treasure today and just on the inside of the first page is the new MX 7. This has to be the same detector that Tom has been swinging around with a orange ring around the face. White's is offering you a look at the detector by way of a video on their site.
      The only thing said is a test was done with a 8.5 gram 14K gold ring at 14 inches saying gonna need a bigger shovel. I guess to find out more we all need to look at White's video on this detector.

      Tom from White’s made a statement that the  color of the MX 7 had to do with the day it would hit the market.
      All know that we see orange everywhere on Halloween. Now with that said will it hold true on the hint that Tom drop.
      Maybe it could be what Halloween is all about and that’s Trick or Treat.
      Intil tomorrow when we’ll all know.
