RichUK, you said;

"The sensitivity that i use is incredibly low and i mean low lol"

I can really appreciappreciate and believe that statement after having experienced that first hand in my ouwn front yard. I have a good deal of cast iron pipe shards in half of it and thought there was something wrong the the Deus until i explored what can happen when the Reactivity levels are raised or lowered. I found that by raising it to 5 I could eliminate almost all the responces from the cast iron pipe pieces and that having the sensitivity down into the 50s had no real effect. Some of the larger pieces came through no matter what I tried. I was amazed at how much of a difference just one point of reactivity could make to its 'depth seening' ability and how little difference redicing a whole bunch of sensitivity could make. This was a BIG ah-ha moment for me.
I was doing all of this with a;
disc setting of 4
Silencer setting from min to max but no -setting
Iron audio off.
Sensitivity between 90 and 50

Monte, you're absolutely correct about an accessory coil tote. I went out yesterday and picked up a used, HD, large back pack that will fit the bill perfectly - with the addition of a few cushiony dividers.

Trust me, I have used the Relic at a site near my house which is heavily laden with lots of foil in one area and iron in another and am also enjoying the lessons i'm learning in slow sweep speed and decifering the sometimes almost imperceptible, good, softer or rounder tones of the better targets, which are few and far between. I have found some tiny brass targets and have been fooled by some very tightly balled blobs of foil. It does what it does with scalple like precision and has its place in tool kit.
I am having a great time and can't thank you enough for having me out that day! It was a game changer for me in this EXCITING hobby.
I look forward to attending some of next years outings - schedules permiting.

Good post, but no 'xyz' needed on the AHRPS Forums.

I agree with you about 'audio' and 'lightness in hand.'
