Hi Monte !

I copied & pasted the following two paragraphs from your subject post and numbered them for reference from the bottom-up.

My question is of a rhetorical nature : Why would that model's "recovery Speed" be impaired when in paragraph #6 the Disc. was increased to "just" reject the iron nail ?

I guess this is another instance of how we interpret the word "just", similar to our past President's statement ""It depends upon what the meaning of the word is... is."

If the Disc. had been set a smidgen or more farther up the arc, I assume the model's recovery speed would be operating at it's designed (unimpaired) speed and the coil would have passed over the nails with no response and signaled the coins in the normal manner......Agree ?

#6..Now, take that very same detector and coil and use about three or four 3" to 4" iron nails and remove every-other coin and replace it with an iron nail. First, however, increase the detector's Discrimination to just reject the iron nail.

#5..Then, sweep down-the-line again and compare how that model's "recovery speed" might not be too impressive when it is also trying to reject (Discriminate or filter-out) the trash and still hit on the next desired target.

Does the number of filters in a metal detector affect recommended sweep speed ?
