I trust you have some huntable weather over there.

Monte, thank you for all of the info. It was a mini seminar in itself.
As with your variety of machines in your arsenal, I have the ones that work best for me. I have very mild soul in my area (Maine), and I do very little, if any, relic hunting. With that said, what I have is what keeps my detecting simple and fun. I rarely encounter any type of site that is riddled with iron.

I might add a new machine come spring, not sure if I need it though. Small parks and athletic fields in my rural town of 4000 people seem to be treating me well. I also seem to be the sole Hunter also.

I just dusted off my Whites classic III sl with the GB and threshold mods. I did them myself a few years ago, but have since forgotten the exact procedure to dial the GB in ?!? Looking forward to taking the 350 snooper coil to one of my favorite ball fields this weekend if the ground isn’t frozen.
I used to keep a modified Classic III SL w/4½" (the Blue Max 350) 'snooper' coil on-hand. Great for hunting very trashy places and working in and around structures, trees and brush, etc. At the same time I had a Classic ID or IDX Pro, or both of them, each modified, that I also kept with me and they had the 6½" Concentric coil mounted. Made a great team. thumbs up

Today I have that particular niche taken care of but do keep my modified Classic ID at-the-ready w/5½" Concentric coil mounted, which is the aftermarket Ferret coil made for Kellyco by Discovery Electronics roughly ± fifteen years ago. We dropped to 18° and it's only warmed up to 30° at 10:20 AM so my body and detectors need it to warm up a bit more before I venture out for any detecting today. Best of success to you if you're able to get out.
