Some character who lives the closest town over, he goes by OregonGregg, also gave the tests some thought because he felt some of his detectors should have 'scored' better.

I wasn't really worried that my detectors "should have done better" but was worried that maybe some of the machines were shown to be better than they actually are. My thoughts that the 7 token test that yielded 14 points, 33.3% of the total test, was too weighted were as the NBT, which I feel is a far more important test only represented 19% of the total test.

For example. I want a ghost town machine and on a moderate budget. I look at the test results, a test with 42 being the best. I see the Vanquish scored 35 and I look at the Racer 2 that only scored 31, so I call Joel and tell him to ship me a Vanquish. In the meantime, I look at the test in detail and realize hmmm!!!

The Vanquish seems to do really well in the nonferrous vs nonferrous test like 7 tokens in a row getting 14 points and the Racer 2 only got 8 pts out of 14. But looking further I see in the iron vs nonferrous test such as the NBT the Racer got 8 of 8 and the Vanquish only 5 of 8 The nail on button test is a pretty tough test. Most machines can get a hit in one direction rather it's in the east/west or north/south but not many can do both.. In fact, I look and see that the Racer 2 was the only machine to get it in both directions. The Vanquish in only one direction.

I guess my argument was that assigning 14 pts to the token test was skewing the results and showing some machines to be better than they actually are if your intentions were to go ghost town detecting.

Anyhow, hauled the M6 over to Montes and tried the newer scaled-down test version that has 23 possible points. I tested the following coils with the M6:

9" Whites Spider
6x8 SEF
4.5 x 7" Detech Excelerator
Whites Eclipse 5.3
7" Detech
4 x 6" Whites Shooter Coil

Anyone wanna guess the order that they came in. Which coil got the best points and which got the worst points smiling smiley

Heck, Monte might be having another fire sale soon and getting himself a couple M6's.............

Comparison Tests ... They can be interesting, and here's a 're-test' I'm doing.

A report of a lot of detectors using their 'standard' search coil.

Any Thoughts of tossing some Rusty Tin in the Mix ?

UtahRich 198 November 19, 2020 04:34PM

Rusty Tin? Yes, it's on the agenda.

I just checked NOAA, and 32° at 12:56 in the afternoon it isn't likely Gregg will head your way.
