My guru had the best of the machines, all brands, massive collection. like he told me when i got started, no matter where when what or how, he would out hunt me consistently with one of his simple machines until i learned the basics. he said you will have beginners luck and all machines will find something somehow, but knowing how to operate in any condition and get the most out of any machine you have is the key.

i have some of Montes old advice emails. the pros and cons and capabilities of certain machines. get the maximum out of the unit. it is what it is. sage advice.

the more advanced machines were and are so versatile. set up proper they perform. some like the MXt are real forgiving, but proper set up makes them so much more efficient. GB, disc sens swing speed proper coil height. all important it seems for whatever ground conditions are at the spot, whether wet dry litter iron minerals. location is a key in another discussion subject. if it aint there it just aint there!

i always carry and use an old buffalo nickel and sometimes bury it 6 inches. stomp the soil down. if i cant see/hear it my machine it is way off settings. with the basic two knob machine, or even one knob Compadre, at the least i throw it down and set the break point on a clear nickel. the more trash i remove the more the lot gives goodies. the basic machine that might not be able to unmask in heavy trash, like the modern disc and notch etc.. But i still use the nickel. . just basics. works for me
