Dan,as you have mentioned some of the sensitivity levels that you use,most of my sens levels are between 40-45 especially on very busy sites as i call them,a very good detecting friend suggested this maybe 5 years ago but initially i was sceptical but thought i would give it a try but only reduced it bit by bit,and gradually walked it down to my almost everyday setting of about 45.I find that the when using high sens levels ie 85-90 especially on my sites the ground matrix just did not allow optimum performance.

Also i have reduced all my other detectors sensitivity/gain levels right down not only VLF but also my Pulse machines as well,and as a result they run ultra stable and my finds rate shot up as well,of course many folks will disagree with my findings and how i setup my detectors but running a detector stable is far superior to running a machine on the edge,far less erratic signals and when combined with using smaller coils as well and sweep speed this has improved my finds rate and that in my mind is what its all about.

I run my T2 at about 60 sensitivity and my Equinox with the 6'' coil at about 12-13 which is well down on what most folks use at about 20-22.Of course what woks for me and my sites and desired targets may not work for anyone else.

Equinox,Deusx2,T2,TDI Pro,Nexus MP,Nexus SE,Fisher TW-5,IDX Pro,DFX,Arado120b,Mirage PI,Crossbow PI and just a few others.

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

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