Am I missing Something

November 24, 2020 06:55PM
I use YouTube to research different detectors and their operation. Recently I came across one with the Apex and the new Ripper coil. The guys swing speed was so fast it looked more like he was trying to kill a snake with a weed whacker. I tend to use a moderate to slow/moderate swing speed and have been happy with my results.. Very similar to how I would use my Tesoro Bandido 2 MM. I do not swing my XLT as fast as he was swinging the Apex. Am I sacrificing any depth here? I recently watched a video where the gentleman was demonstrating his displeasure with his Simplex and new 8" coil. I was stunned at how fast he was swinging it. I thought good lord my shoulders would never last at that rate. I think part of his chatter/falsing issue with the coil was the fact you could pass a grapefruit between the shaft and coil cable with room to spare. What is your optimum sweep speed for good performance?

No, you're not missing anything. You're just witnessing things I've watched for over 50 years.
