Sensitivity Training?

And no... I'm not talking about my incessant bombardment of OregonGregg's postsgrinning smiley

I've always viewed sensitivity a couple of different ways:

• Turning it up doesn't necessarily increase depth on a detector.
• It doesn't increase or decrease the "transmit power" of a detector.
• It DOES enhance the audio response to a target.

I used to run sensitivity as high as possible, just below where my machines would "chatter". I noted that I was getting a lot of falsing and less audio information about the potential size of a shallower (say less than 6") target.

Nowadays, I tend to back it off a little more thinking I'm hearing more subtle indicators of coins/tokens. Im definitely digging fewer rusted and bent nails.The higher settings seem to make things all sound the same sometimes.

To me, it's another balancing the detector to the conditions question.

Am i looking at this correctly? I'm curious to hear other opinions.
