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.

Well said Gregg, one thing u forget about those sites across the pond is they also have to deal with coke, acts just like those rusted up tin flakes and junk. The best discrimination will always be my ears and hearing those small tonal differences that alert me to the small iron flakes or junk. I havent found a machine that deal with those small rusted tin pieces well. I have found some that do much better than the rest tho. Im not a hater so i wont bash anyone elses favorite machines when it comes to this topic.
