Gregg a pain in the behind? eye rolling smiley. I just can't imagine that. smiling bouncing smiley

As for conducting a proper test to measure a detector for characteristics that are useful for the type of detecting you mostly do. Challenging.

What characteristics ARE you looking for? Jot those down then figure out a way to test for them. Then weight the test in relation to other characteristics.

For the areas I hunt, I would have included tests to measure and score for ergonomics, a depth test with a small corroding ferrous co-locate and a plain old depth test. I would also have done an audio test for modulation. Does the audio weaken as the depth of the target increases? Or is it saturated all the time? Is the audio informational or simply on and off? And I would have deleted a few tests that aren't so relevant to what I do.

These are just a few thoughts of what is important to me. And it differs from what Monte needs for the hunting he primarily pursues and you as well.

Anyway, I'll watch for Montes and your results.

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.

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