First Hunt with the 8" concentric.

October 16, 2022 07:21PM
8" Concentric coil 2 hour trial hunt. Managed to get out to a schoolyard that is a perfect testing ground. Extremely windy with a temp of 55F during the hunt.

Target separation was excellent. Pinpointing is very easy for not having a pinpoint button on the detector. No problem finding tiny foil pcs. at 5-6". Even found 5 brass starter gun blanks at 5-6". Sizing a target is fast. Surprised at finding those small square pop can pull tabs at 6" that rang up loud and clear. Canadian clad coins give a nice tight target width, so your able to tell if it is a coin size target. I did not dig any iron, it was there, you could hear it.

Ground balancing was easy, stable and quiet even when Gain and Threshold was at max. Maximum depth most items reach in this schoolyard is 5-7". Since the Vista X is always compared to a Tesoro. Tesoro owners would feel extremely comfortable if purchasing the X along with the 8" concentric coil.

Todays finds also included approx. $4-5.00 in coins in various denominations. Along with pulltabs, blank shells, tin foil, foil juice tops, bottle cap, canslaw..... All my finds are still inside my goodie bay. Will admit, it feels extremely nice to hunt with a Vista X again.

Rain is in the forecast for the next 5 days, if the weather clears by next weekend, I will be ready for the next hunt.
