  1. In a few months we will know more about how this device works. I put tests from test tracks between fairy tales, especially when the operator has no idea how to set up the machine and does not show the calibration and does not explain the settings, and what's more, he goes with a device he does not know. What tests are we talking about? About fairy tales from the land of moss and ferns for the naive. After a few months, you can do such tests as you understand the device. Mythomania nothing more. It takes time and patience.
  2. That is a trap. Marketing trap. You need to buy and you are only prisoner of that. What they show… new headphones or swing harness?
  3. You need to choose smoother program and do frequency scan. Sensitivity should to be reduced also. That is only way.
  4. That one was from 35 cm and response was loud and clear in ocean of iron but… I was found also tiny horseshoe from 80 cm also loud and clean. I don’t have experience with it yet.
  5. Ok first out after me. Machine is not light at all 1.9 kg but balanced perfectly. I'm talking about setup with dual butterfly coil so it always be heavier than other coils that size. Anyway that double coil was made from carbon fiber so it could be the lighter coil that kind. No sensitivity adjustment and that is great. Ground balancing procedure is easy and fast. VCO tones works very well little weird at first time for me, but target locking on iron carpet site is perfect. You can switch that off if you like. VCO meter with multi color led works also fine. Recovery is fast and is really adaptive. I'm waiting for silver Scout coil right now. Very quiet even indoors you don't struggle with EMI. What about depth? How to say... I don't know nothing to compare. For me, perfect second machine on hunted to death sites.
  6. That is right... so I have two. Butterfly double 10 low frequency inches and CC 10 high frequency. We see. Im using also Pathfinder twobox from Nexus... and that is part of electronic art.
  7. Ok device is not cheap but very, very well made. Coil is carbon fiber and is very light - we talking about double 10" butterfly style coil. Overall weight is about 1.9 kg = 4.1 lbs. Is not light but very well balanced. What about adjustments. Ok is not easy and it could be the bad idea buy it without experience or like rookie in metal detecting world. What we have here?! 1. We have two ground balance adjustments. Coarse and Fine GB knobs. The Fine control is a 10 turn for fine tuning, the Coarse control is one turn for coarse tuning. 2. The Discrimination control of the MP V3 needs to be set somewhere around 3-4 on the scale (similar to MkII) to avoid digging iron as non-ferrous. It's best to choose your setting on the field after digging some signals. Unlike MkII the Discrimination of MP V3 is very soft in adjustment values. This means there is no danger of turning it too much at very small increments. 3. The LC-MC SET control is used to turn on/off the RGB LED meter and to adjust the cut off point between low conductors (LC) and medium conductors (MC). If this control is set to the left (0), only the lowest conductors will be indicated with green color - hammered gold coins, Roman gold coins, any small gold coin or artifact as well as very small bits of foil. All other non-ferrous targets will be indicated either with added Orange (Medium conductors MC) or White/Blue (high conductors) If you turn the LC-MC SET to the right some hammered silver coins will be indicated as low conductors as well as most pull tabs. 4. The Mineral Control is to be used only on highly mineralized ground containing magnetite. MC Fine stands for mineral control fine adjustment. If you turn on the mineral control the detector's sensitivity will be marginally reduced, but this will enable you to your audible Threshold close to powerful interference sources. 5. The Threshold of MP V3 should be used with some audible level at all times - constant hum. This is so that the very deepest small targets can be detected and all other targets to give really good broad response. Audible Threshold will make sure the V3 gets everything way better than any other detector in existence, even the MP V2 (which is a beast in it's own right). The general advice is swing the coil about 10 cm above ground on all sites and listen to the audible Threshold. When target is located if iffy lower the coil closer to ground. If the LED meter is uncertain use the VCO to give you final word. 6. The VCO control is to be used only to identify iffy targets or on contaminated ground. The VCO control needs to be set so that the first green light just comes up. This will set the VCO tones to the audible middle between low tones and high tones. The VCO is the ultimate way to identify very iffy (weak signals) targets at maximum depth. When used on contaminated ground the Threshold of V3 has to be quiet so that the constant use of VCO tones there will not be disruptive. Iron will not be indicated on the RGB LED meter unless the Disc control is set close to 0. In this case Iron will be indicated with green color like all low conductors. 7. The battery test will show you levels between 10.5V and 11.5V. So when the battery test is showing less than full led green bar then batteries are getting close to a new charge.
  8. Ok new IB baby. I will try it soon. Thank you Georgi!
  9. It doesn’t work in real world! Why they use recovery 2.5 on D2?! They should to set machines low as possible with recovery and then check depth after ground balance and EMI cancel… but it will be still average comparison… we don’t know program frequencies anyway…
  10. That is it. I'm talking exactly about that mate.
  11. Here in ocean of iron, bigger coil is not right tool to choose. Better iron separation and better EMI channel scanning and we are more happy.
  12. As we well know, it all depends of mineralization, iron and EMI. Yesterday, for example, in the place where I have been walking for 6 months, someone started data transmission ... and Deus II had problems all the time. I scan freqs. every 5 minutes and the problem kept coming back. Likewise, downward sensitivity. It happened in one place all over the spot. So real tests, not test tracks. Tests over time.
  13. Tarsacci is the deepest detector I have ever worked in iron. Beats other SMFs. Even a Deus II with reactivity set to 0 in Relic is shallower. It's a good alternative at this price. Comparing to Whites TDI it is similar. Tarsacci gives more information, the fact of discrimination is not perfect, but it can be distinguished whether it is high conductor or iron. I did not deal with the GPX, but it is a different price range. There is also Nexus MP in IB technology.
