But sometimes there are no 'tones' to use.

Yup I'm sure you correct. Depth and target ID disappear quickly when turning reactivity up. Still can tell by tones to dig or not. If it sounds small or deep I dig it.
The ORX is a little different from the Deus in Reactivity, but I only use '2.5' sometimes. The bulk of the time I have it at '2' and that works great for most operating frequencies I use.

But if it is bumped to '3' I not only lose a numeric VDI response, but no favorable or workable audible response on some targets ... such as the stack of 5 Silver Halves on top of a Silver Dollar.

Matter-of-fact, I have my saved program in the #5 spot that is User Coin. Based on the #4 Coin Deep mode with settings I prefer on one ORX w/5X9½ HF at 14.4 kHz and the ORX w/9" X35 coil working at 7.7 kHz ... with both using a reactivity of '2'. I grab the ORX & Coil set-up I want, turn it On and hunt away w/o any tinkering. 'Simple' and I like 'simple'.thumbs up

The 2.5 reactivity setting. . . .

That sounds logical if it was to enhance what they already had. N/T
