  1. I guess I was typing at the same time as you to what Chase was saying .Have you run 5khz where you detect and what were your thoughts' I ran 5khz and it seems to be more prone to falsing . sube
  2. Chase I tried that first because of it's lower frequency same results tab at 5 inches only now the ctx runs at even lower frequency and the tab is the only thing that shows after 5 inches must be a muti thing don't know . As el nino 77 pointed out 5 khz does separate to depth not like muti or fbs apparently by being in 5khz giving full power to that frequency it is not as sensitive to the tab so dime well win .Where as muti even though it's weighted to high conductors it still weighted some what to the lower conductors there by making it still sensitive to the tab same can be said of the
  3. EL nino 77 said Sube If the equinox worked the same ctx on mixed various conductive targets....it would be quit possible that it achieved comparable separation results with the ctx . El NINO 77 the ctx still suffers like the nox when the pull-tab is with the dimes same fate as nox can't separate I don't no if it's a muti thing fbs thing or what but even though ctx runs at a lower frequency than the nox the tab still is seen as the only target passed 5 inches . Now when iron is used instead of tab the results change the ctx will be within 1 number of the true id of the high conductor
  4. Thanks for doing the tests it is true as you seen that 5 khs does separate to full coil height giving full power to high conductor and making it less sensitive to lower conductors (tab) but iron is a different problem running 5khs more falsing and not being able to adjust iron bias . Tit for tat I could of just bought a straight vfl and achieve the same results .But I thought running muti would do the same because it is running 5khs also learn as you go I guess . Most people would say the ctx is complicated to run it is just as complicated as the nox a lot of people dumped there ctx for
  5. Steve said actually already answered the question, it’s just not what people want to hear. It should be obvious machines don’t separate as well at depth as in the shallows. Nothing improves with depth. This is what I wanted for a answer honest reply when I bought the detector I was thinking this was what I needed for hunting in trashy spots and the separation was what I needed but not at 2 to 5 inches won't do me any good .I still think as you go deeper say 10 inches the dimes have to be 6 inches away to get a ID that leads me to think the coils field is getting bigger thereby encircling
  6. Jeff said So if your Nox coil is over a small iron target and say a small gold nugget, the nugget will get two or three shots at being detected while the iron target only gets one. Depending on what mode you are in if you have a dime and pull tab at roughly the same depth and orientation, the pull tab is more than like going to drown out the dime so to speak and blur the target response since they are roughly the same size and one is a low to mid conductor and the dime is a high conductor. Just my two cents Yes read your post thanks for the reply but the ? remains it does this fine to 5
  7. Chase thanks for your reply a little about myself I have detected for 50 years have used minelabs for over 20 years I only hunt thrash with a 6 inch coil (Sounds like you simply don't understand the concepts of recovery speed (which facilitates detection of separate closely spaced targets) ( the CTX, need the targets to be more widely separated to individually detect them than detectors with faster recovery speeds, like the equinox) (wrong) it's coil speed separate closely spaced targets) Like a dime 3 inches left of tab(SQUARE TAB OFF TODAYS SODA CAN) and a dime 3 inches right
  8. Steve why does the nox separate at 2 inches and not at 5 inches with the dime and tab at 5 it blends the targets .This test was done with the 6 inch coil on the 2 detectors .sube
  9. Trying to get some answers for over a year on why I need speed for separation I figured a tech savy group her could lead to some answers. Simple 1 minute test pull-tab with dime 3 inches away on left side and a dime 3 inches away right side of pull-tab same plane .At 2 inches nox and ctx hit with proper id .Now raise the coil 5 inches no separation nox will only id as tab 13 or 14 ctx same however ctx will id correct to 10 inches using side of coil nox no coil size did not matter . Replace tab with nail nox does better will id to depth but with id of 12 13 14 or 15 16 and 17 the ctx
  10. Ever have one of those days not one stinking old coin just some assorted clad that was Saturday so I licked my wounds and went back Sunday so I finally got out to the fairgrounds to try out the nox . Sunday was better took the ctx and nox hunted with the nox the coins were 2 to 3 inches deep all had nails was running 7 for recovery speed park 1 iron bias The nox called the merc at 2 inches deep at 20 I had high tones set from 19 and up and nickels open at 12 to 13 the ctx called it iron except one sweep would give 12.43 more accurate ID than the 20 the nox called it but I don't think I wou
  11. Cabin Fever I mainly got it for low conductors and trash hunting I know it well be a killer on nickels deeper than the ctx I would think can't wait for the 6 inch killer coil in trash . sube
  12. I ordered mine because I just happened to be home that day seen the post about cabalas and said what the heck I order one they do have a 90 day return policy on it . I don't need it till mid April but now I have lot's of time to get to know it . Hope someone else snags one I just got to get that horseshoe out of my a## now. sube
  13. I ordered my nox at 10.30 2/20 no tracking till yesterday came home today detector at front door 3 days wow only 250 miles from Chicago anyhow if your order was placed before 10.00 I think you will get it . sube
