  1. It was deep on rings in fresh water well actually deep on everything. 😁 Every CZ I had gave an iron tone or bounced iron/foil on the deep ones so I would have to make at least one scoop to be sure. The 1270 in iron disc nailed the DEEP stuff big or small. Chuck (I think that is his name) with Sunspot scoops designed a water proof case for the 1270's boards but never put it in production and Fisher was not interested in the fresh water market.
  2. One of my favorite detectors of all time. It had gobs of power, a well chosen frequency for all around use, a good balance of sensitivity/gain and that great iron disc feature. Really was ahead of its time. For someone like me that cut their teeth metal detecting with a beep dig detector it was the pinnacle of analog hybrid VLF performance. Unfortunately it was a ergonomic disaster and never really caught on.
  3. What Chase said. Lay out some coins and other targets on the ground and get those clean hit sounds of good targets in your brain. For the time being concentrate on digging just those target responses. Something that is seldom brought up and I feel is important especially to someone new to metal detecting is headphone volume. Ears being highly sensitive organs need protecting. There is a right and wrong way to set the volume and this is based on how our ears react to changes in volume level. Changing from a loud to a softer level tricks the brain into thinking you are good to go but actually results in setting a too high level. Do the opposite, start low and slowly increase it until it is comfortable for long term use.
  4. Try raising the coil a bit. If they are small but read in the teens they should drop out sooner than a ring. Won't help on the faint, near the edge of detection targets, those will have to be dug. 18 and above in your pic will have to be dug regardless.
  5. The Ex-terra 9" concentric is a perfect coil for fresh water work. I used mine a LOT wading shallow water. It's the perfect form for ease of use against water resistance and plenty sensitive even at the standard mid freq. ML you s**k. LOL
  6. OMG a concentric coil! Check mark!!!
  7. The Bounty Hunter will surely come after you! 😱
  8. Phrunt The big coil might improve the Nox's already good performance on on-edge coins to a greater degree. Just a hunch.
  9. In my experience with low freq mostly on the ML Advantage, you need a bigger than stock coil for any real advantage on silver of any size. I had the WOT coil on that machine and it was DEEP! If you have one, put on the 15"er when you using 5Khz.. I'll have to edit that and add I was referring to US silver coins which are not what many on here consider small silver.
  10. I heard half of the entries won a prize. JK of course Congrats!
  11. I don't have the genes to be competitive probably why I wasn't invited. D*mn genetics!
  12. My only silver dollar sounded just like a flattened pop can. Glad I didn't pass it by.
  13. Perfect coil parameters for my needs as a fresh water wader. I hope a waterproof version comes out before I croak or get to old and fat to fit my neoprenes.
