..So ... now I see that my order has shifted a few steps further beyond the better options.and the 4x6 "Shooter reelsurprised ..
Your tests will probably be strongly focused on 2D separation ... but that's your detection style on Ghost Town..and similar places ... So I give you the truth..OregonGreeg ....thumbs up

Ya that is true EL NINO. Good targets are mostly surface to being shallow, mixed in with a bunch of iron and rusted tin. But yes the test is more 'Ghost town" oriented. Even Monte was a bit surprised how well the 4x6 shooter did on these particular tests. The 7' detech was a very very close second but didn't quite give a good enough signal on one of the sweeps on the NBT.

But I will be mainly using the M6 w/7" Detech coil to work more open areas, fringe areas etc. I think the 7"Detech will be an excellent coil for that. Plus the m6 with that coil balances very well and I can swing it all day and no numb hands.. The Fors CoRe with the 9.5 x5 coil.......balances well and is not heavy, yet after swinging it for 6 hours on our last trip, my hand was numb, and had to pry my fingers off the handle. Something about the handle angle I guess. I will just leave the small "oor" coil on it full time.

Speaking of surprises, Monte had me try a machine with a 9.5 x5 coil and that was the Simplex. I kinda chalked it off as a low-cost entry-level machine. But that machine with the mid size coil breezed right through most of the test. I'm guessing that is why Nokta didn't put a small 5" coil out for that machine, if so, it might run some pretty good competition with its bigger brothers.

That might actually be the next and last machine I buy for a while. I like how it can perform and the waterproofing. Would be a great machine to use in the early Spring when it is still wet & rainy. There were a few times while Zincoln & I were on our outings that we got rained on pretty good and had to keep my Racer 2 housing covered, which was a pain.

Was talking with Kickndirt last night and he says I need to get an order in by end of Dec as they still have a promotion going ( free pinpointer).
So I might just do that, who knows. He also said they are having some decent weather down his way and to get down there and we could do some detecting. I was sure tempted to take him up on that offer. Is always fun detecting with Kickndirt and can put the ol' Fors Core up against the Deus. The last time we detected together it was a tie, we each got a IH penny, an old nickel and eagle button. Maybe I should go down there with the M6 and break the tie lol cool smiley

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 ?

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