Well, turning off the horseshoe (all metal) and turning the iron bias back to high did quiet the machine down quite a bit. Still some falsing on iron, but I get that with my V3i as well when the sensitivity is up.....so its not abnormal.

The thing I couldn't tell was that i quit hitting those deep pull tabs and found only 1 coin vs. about 20 yesterday (except for a spill i'll elaborate on), so don't know if i lost sensitivity or depth...or whether targets simply weren't there. Left me with that uneasy feeling that only days on the machine could answer.

Now, the one thing that occurred today that left me a bit flat was a 3 coin spill on the surface. A nickel on top of a dime, immediately beside a quarter. I only got the tiniest of bleep in one direction. Basically indicated it wasn't there....more like falsing or a deep nail. I'd expect it to hit hard, with inaccurate VDIs. I stopped and looked only because the blip was a high tone and spied them and tried to get it to hit them....but it wouldn't.
So, that left me wondering - what the heck.

Anyway, for what i am doing with them on this side of the state, the unit is ok as configured w/ the 9x12 coil. Nothing i'm excited about...but then I have machines that are clearly higher end, so it would take a lot to blow my socks off on a $500 unit. If i didn't have 8 years under my belt, i might have had a different opinion...and if i had another month with this unit and a smaller coil...i might also form a different opinion.

Regardless, a good way to spend the evening.
