Hey Monte

Agreed.

I look at it this way . . . One must be seeking jewelry in order to find jewelry.

My mental discrimination was a difficult thing for me to overcome, and i still have to work on it. I had to stop looking for reasons NOT TO RETRIEVE a target. Now, I look at it like ALL targets are possible rings. I use the audio and visual of my 800 to have a look at each signal asking myself if it could be a ring. If it COULD be a ring, I happily retrieve it. It makes a difference for me to think this way.

I also put myself in better locations to find rings. In reality, a ring could be lost anywhere, but there are places where the odds of losing rings and other jewelry are much higher. Combine that with places where a ring can disappear from view quickly - like the ocean or sandy beach, and odds are even higher. There are other considerations as well based upon each specific area that can raise or lower odds of a ring / jewelry being lost.

I started detecting 18 years before there was Target ID, and after that I still favored the good detectors that came out the same time Target ID came out in 1983, but I preferred the non-display Tesoro line. I was working high-potential in a "Beep-DIG!" approach.

That continues today and Tesoro's have continued to work well, as did the non-display Vista-X I had. That's one reason I am going to get another DeepTech Vista-X and set of coils I will use with it.
