Rich, you may be onto something - after all, how many parks, curb strips, sports fields, front yards and swimming holes do you thing Gregg does each year? Most likely not as many as you or I do, so his selection of detectors is centered around a smaller sampling of possible detection sites. For what he concentrates on, his detector selection is exactly what he's looking for. Like Monte he likes to keep things simple and doesn't like to spend his detecting time making adjustments and figuring out the right combination of settings. Besides, who really likes change?!
So yes, there are other things to consider which most likely don't really affect his hunting style, site choices and the conditions he encounters.
In most of areas of life its more satisfying and profitable to be a specialist rather than a novice. Like your signature states "It's YOU that makes the difference". So then, Gregg is a Specialist in his own right for the type of hunting he mostly engages in he IS the difference in his success rate and doesn't rely on 'new' technology or bells and whistles for that.
As for me, I like the bells and whistles of the Deus and now, really taking the time to learn it, is making my detecting trips much more enjoyable and yes, successful.
A part of me regrets getting rid of the NOX 800 without giving it its just due. I did NOT make the difference there, I just neglected it and tossed it aside like some unwanted and misunderstood piece of kit. Someday, maybe I'll revisit it and give it the time I need to get the most out of it and enjoy it. Maybe.

UtahRich 64 August 20, 2020 04:33PM

I concur with regard to experience. However, it brings this thought to mind.
