have noticed coil differences

August 24, 2020 06:36AM
i usually use my Sabre with a CC coil in this field. fast and furious as i call it. depth not an issue. i have had good luck with the 5x8 AT Pro also and could tell the caps ,,,most time..... SimplEx with the big factory coil, was hard to tell the caps with the numbers, being all over the place. but i have learned the accurate number is in the clevis area of the coil, helps to pinpoint and recheck. there are just so many, and yes i did clean an area and got a couple pennies, dime, so not really worth it. but it is a proving ground. all i am getting is leftover from past years because the soccer league moved on and the t ballers non existent this year at this field. the caps are rusting away and finds very meager. as far as i know i am the olny hunter, and did well for change here.

my hearing damaged too bad by guns to discern a lot of tone difference. my guru noticed that years ago. he said listen to this signal, i swept the ground there, what signal? he tried my machine, ..that signal.. handed me the phones, yea, take your word for it. it was thin gold ring a little down depthwise. he could hear it with both machines and phones. i could not with either. ..... A hearing test showed a lot of loss, just about hearing aid time in left ear. midrange the major loss. so numbers help. a lot. but i still enjoy older style machines with some decent luck. i know i miss some faint signals. the Shadow x2 i am after i know is a hopped up Sabre, which i love, and this one has excellent audio with my Rattler phones. i have them turned up too much for most people . i hope i can acquire the Shadow.

i have noticed headphones can be so different . my stock plain double ear Garrets dont sound right on my Tesoro, fine on my Garrett but not the best....soft sounding. the Rattlers sound good on all of them. old Calrads are not half bad.

i am begining to see the differences in the CC and DD coils. and as always i like to redo places with different set ups. always find something.

DD coils love rusty beer bottle caps, your Tesoro with a concentric coil would be better thumbs up N/T
