Favorite detector & methods in modern trash

September 20, 2020 09:35AM
So, what I'm after here is to get an idea of what detector, techniques, coils, tips, tricks you like to use in places where there is lots of modern trash.
Usually I just dig every good sounding signal and also, when time permits, I dig everything to clean out the area and then go back over it several more times, but sometimes I don't have very much time - that's why the modern trashy sites as they are close and convenient.
I have used the Bandito II micro max with a 6" coil, the Deus with the 5x9, the Anfibio with the 5"ish round coil and the 5.5x9" and the Simplex with the 5x9"ish coil. Out of all of these I preferred the Anfibio with the small round coil. For me I was able to come off the target slowly and have a better idea as to it's composition. I dig trash about 75% of the time when I think it could be a good target. I have been surprised at times how the good targets can be completely masked or the VDI is dragged down due to junk or the sound is scratchy or distorted and there is a good target in all of that. That's why the dig it all approach works so well, but sometimes it gets discouraging, tiring, boring and on the bad days, painful to do!
After speaking with a guy who uses the NOX 800 almost exclusively for these types of places with reported good target success rates of 80+% digging only good targets, I'm wondering if I'm just not skilled enough yet or is the NOX 800 just that good?
What's worked for you and what have you learned?
