Re: New to me Cibola

Well, I made time to swing it for a little over an hour this afternoon. Out of convenience I went to a smallish yard that I have hunted at least 20 times with the T2, MXT and the Compadre. The yard of this old mill home is quite full of nails and decades of trash. One of those places that every hole dug has an extra few nails in with your keeper. Targets have been few and far between for quite a while, but I still like to hit it every now and then to see if I can squeak out just one more coin. (It doesn't take much to make me happy) Today I was indeed able to find one more old-ish coin,, a '34 wheat cent, and just a few other brass/copper trash targets. The machine was a pleasure to swing. No shoulder fatigue at all. The 9X8 coil glided across the grass with ease. It was a bit chatty. I feel like it was probably all the rust tipped nails and small bits of foil that was causing it ( Thresh-1:00,,, Sens- 10,, Disc- varied ). Overall I am not displeased with the machine. I look forward to taking it to an older home site or a patch of woods without too much modern trash.

And I was tickled that my pinpointer didn't cause chatter when close to the Cibola.
