Then the 'fun' begins when you take it out to a selected site with potentially good targets to be found.

Look forward to finding a time when it's not raining, or other duties are requested. I have nothing going on Sunday, so of course they are calling for rain.

Just get about working a site, using a slow-and-methodical sweep speed, pausing only long enough to isolate

Now that made a light come on. So swing speed should be slow with the Cibola?

For some that might depend on if they are right-handed or left-handed.

LOL! That's fair! Touche'!!

It is a simple matter to address, however, as all the user needs to do if find the most mineralized ground in the areas you generally hunt, then be ready with a small screw driver and open the Cibola to locate the GB trimmer, then very carefully tweak the internal GB in the All Metal mode so that it is just very slightly negative in the All Metal mode with a Tesoro. Double-check the GB setting in the Discriminate mode to make sure it isn't set too negatively.

Naturally I have no clue what kind of 'Depth' you hoped for as you didn't indicate an expectation.

In response to both of the above quotes. I took a few minutes this afternoon and tweaked the GB. The adjustment was about the thickness of a dime to the negative side in order to get a nice neutral GB, but man what a difference it made in the machines performance and my optimism for it. Over the next couple of days I will double check GB at a couple of close by parks. My "depth hopes" were that it would pickup the 6 inch deep Mercury dime in my test garden, while discriminated up above tabs. Again, this is just what I optimistically hoped for. Originally it would not even crack/pop a little bit. After the GB adjustment it hits the 6" dime fairly consistently. Hoping maybe in a real world hunt with coins that have been in the ground for decades, it will hit them regularly.

when it first came out I described it as an 'OOR' coil, for its slightly Out-Of-Round' shape.

Makes perfect sense to me!
