Updated test results, AT Gold added

Well, theory proved correct. The AT Gold (5" CC) performs as well as the Impact (7" CC).

I re-did the tests with the Impact and AT Gold in my real ground mineralized soil, which measures as "highly mineralized" (78) on the Gold. The nails were mounted on a piece of cardboard, to emulate approximately, laying on the ground.

I also changed the results of the Impact based on the depth at which the target can no longer be detected. I pushed the nickel down into the soil, until the detectors could no longer hit it. Both did about 1/4". Hey, that's progress smiling smiley

Another important note: Neither the Gold nor Impact could hit a cu penny in the N-S direction, until I spread the nails to ~2" apart. The nickel just provides more non-ferrous volume.

Also, even though the Gold is a pound less than the Impact, it has poor balance. With the small 5" coil, it hangs straight down and requires force to keep the coil 'up'. I'll try a counterweight off the end of the shaft.
