Got The Anfibio Into Some Iron Today! Wow!

Recommended Posts

Finally a thaw here had a chance to run this detector in the iron at some old sites. Very impressed with the new coil --makes the machine considerably deeper than even the Impact and Kruzer. Superb audio as well--I can really hear everything in the ground--set at disc zero the heavy iron areas become obvious telling me where to buzz around for masked targets. Or I can just jump it up to 4 or 5 to knock the spikes out. With this detector I can hear anything non-ferrous mixed in really well. The 3 Tone mode is also great--it's speeds up the response to bring up even more signals from these worst sections. Never really felt the need for a pinpointer but with the way this machine gets down into the spikes I will need one now. Really liked the overall performance of this detector and will be out there again heading for the worst sections soon as it warms up a bit. cjc

I like the Anfibio Multi very much.  Has good handling of iron.  User will not get fooled digging iron yet the detector is doing some nice things separation wise.  I think detector is even worthy for a beginner detectorist as long as stick with 3 tone and get use to detector.

That's true TN--there's a lot going on with the bias and gain--more tones is too much initially.  Once you understand the iron response though--lot of potential anywhere.  Killed my worst site the other day..a Victorian grove where they worked on cars later on.   Kind of a cleaner, sharper signal than any of the multis--none of this "doodley boop" or bittyness....the Anfibio is raw--but stable.   Feel like it's wide open now --got an 1870 dime there a while back.

In looking for silver what I like about this machine is that as you adjust the high tone break there's a nice high tone that comes in initially but then drops out if the signal is below your setting.   So you are still getting stuff in close to iron but can use the coil to tell what's what.  You hear both ranges at once. Gotta get some more practice upping the high tone--pitch and volume.  I know there's going to be a lot of silver this year.  Its also shocking how many good signals are coming out of nowhere at the same sites I'd given up on.

I think the round coil given on Anfibio overall is better. Coins titled or on edge in more danger of being had vs the elliptical 7x11” coil used on Impact.

      “Hello all, hope you’ve all had a great weekend. We’ve just put a short video covering some of the aspects on the DeepTech Vista X together, some of the features that you’ll see in the video has been altered but we will be making a new video on these changes very soon. We’ve had so much interest in the Vista X, we put a video together as fast as possible to show some of these new features. Thank you for your patience, more information and update video on performance coming shortly. Recommended retail price: 580 Euro”

      DeepTech is introducing a metal detector very similar to what Tesoro might have done if they had updated the Tejon - check out the new DeepTech Vista X. 16 kHz with fast switching dual discrimination controls.

      Hi All,
      Today I found this "introduction" of a mini/pocket md on the YT channel of "Sondelsüchtig". 
      A "new type of" metaldetectorsensor/coil with a smartphone app/screen.....  Is this the future? Don't know, but I thought some of you might find it interesting to view.
      It is in german, but the video "speaks" for itself.  Sondelsüchtig means "addicted to detecting".  And € 399,00 = us$ 448,60. "Handy" is a smartphone.
      The YT link to Stephan's/Sondelsüchtig's channel: https://youtu.be/B7XLdSk0guE 
      and
       The 2 links to Stephan's/Sondelsüchtig's sponsor/dealer Nuggets24:

      Also called RF detectors and depth multipliers.  Invented in the 1930's by Gerhard Fisher (founder of Fisher Research Labs, now part of the First Texas conglomerate), this type of detector seems to not have changed much in operating characteristics in 80+ years.  From what I've found there are still three competing models in production:  Fisher's current Gemini-3 model (now 30 years old) https://www.detectorprospector.com/metal-detector-database/fisher-gemini-3-r27/, Garrett's Treasure Hound Eagle Eye Depth Multiplier (quite a mouthful) which is an add-on to their aging GTI 2500 standard style metal detector https://www.detectorprospector.com/metal-detector-database/garrett-gti-2500-r44/ and White's TM808 https://www.detectorprospector.com/metal-detector-database/whites-tm-808-r38/ , a spinoff of a collaboration between White's and Discovery, another Sweet Home, OR company that appears to now be defunct. 
      The Fisher unit, operating at 82 kHz, seems to be the most closely aligned survivor of the early design.  Garrett's 'latest' depth multiplier (easily the most expensive at $1300 retail when combined with the GTI 2500) with its 7.2 kHz operating frequency advertises its advantage of being in the VLF range, ignoring ground minerals. White's unit (operating frequency = ?) has ground cancelling controls.  Unlike today's deep PI's and ZVT which can also go deep, these 2 box transmit/receive (T/R) detectors ignore small objects -- an advantage when the sought after target is large and in a trashy area. 
      That's a brief overview of the current commercial climate, but what I'd like to know is how much different these three units are when it comes to operating characteristics.  Specifically do the differences in operating frequency and/or ground adjustments translate into better performance under certain conditions?
