I ALWAYS leave the Disc. at the minimum setting to allow me to hear the best audio target response, then I can quickly Pinpoint the target, recover it, sweep the spot to double-check and make sure there are no other targets, then get back to searching for more. Never, and I mean NEVER, do I spend any time tinkering with the variable Disc. control, and for a few very good reasons:

1.. When 'thumbing' the Disc. control while sweeping the search coil, you are not going to get a proper or clean and clear audio response compared to adjusting , stopping, and then sweeping the coil. If adjusting while sweeping the coil you are feeding in both ground and target information, and during the sweep that can have an effect on the signal received, processed and audio quality.

2.. Jewelry is most often found closer to the surface and not real deep making it quicker to be recovered. Also, jewelry comes in all sorts of sizes and shapes and can be oriented in many different positions when lost, from laying 'flat' to 'on-end' or 'canted' in off positions and that can have a big effect of the quality of the audio response, or visual with those models, that we receive. It makes it especially difficult to get a good lock-on visual TID and that applies to the audio information we are going to hear, too.

3.. Time spent sweeping and re-sweeping and re-sweeping as we tinker with the Disc. control can simply be a waste of time. It is also altering the audio response from a better good signal to one that might be broken-up and on to being rejected and, in the end, that tells us nothing. All we get is a lot of different audio information that WE are changing and not the located target, and it is simply an assortment of audio responses while time is being wasted.

It is much quicker to get a 'hit' and pinpoint the target, quickly, then make a recovery and have the target, good-or-bad, in our hand. Audio responses over and over and over tell us very little. A visual response is going to tell us everything, so just use the 'Beep-DIG!' technique and know, because ....

I understand. The CleanSweep kind of limits depth on its own.

Monte 136 December 13, 2019 05:53AM

Clean Sweep depth decrease but area of detection greatly increased.
