Another thing that brings additional OVERTHOUGHT on my part is all of the folks in Europe that are hunting sites with a millenia's worth of iron in them with the 9" coil and the new HF elliptical.

I agree I think the XP is excellent in iron as well as some other machines, however, the Romans etc didn't have something that they finally invented 150 yrs ago or so.....tin cans and the rusted tin flakes that so densely litter many of these old ghost town sites.

If it was only iron ( nails bolts etc etc) it would actually be much easier to hunt, low disc & turn down iron audio volume or simply disc out the iron. Factor in the rusted tin flakes etc and it can become extremely frustrating at times. Sometimes a coil smaller than 9" helps to work thru that crap. I haven't seen a machine yet that can tackle the rusted tin flakes. I did hear that an E-Trac could handle the rusted tin fairly good, but the downside was that add the nails ( iron) in the mix and it was lights out.

I realize, and Monte has taught me, there is no perfect machine. I use the Nokta/Makros as I feel they do a pretty good job trying to tackle these kinds of sites. Now that I have an abundance of hours on these machines and have a really good feel, I like them and they work for me.
