Audio and Zero and Me.

September 01, 2018 07:45AM avatar
Rich my hearing is worse now than it used to be, but I was still hearing impaired back in my CZ days, and the testing done at HAFB in '82 thru '86 had me unqualified or full-time civilian hire because they claimed I was deaf. So different hearing abilities can make a difference and due to that, the CZ-5, my favorite of the CZ series, wasn't much of a problem for me. I could handle the audio tone, but while it wasn't bad, I preferred some of my other detector's audio response over it.

I switched up my hunting between '0' and '1' but never experienced anything that marveled me about hunting in '0', and that was after reading about it and discussing the CZ's with a couple of fellows I knew a the old Los Banos facility.

By the way, I also preferred the 8" coil on the CZ's, and while I got good coin depth in uncluttered old grassy parks and courthouse squares, I still could usually match or better that using a different brand and model also using an 8" Concentric coil. There were/are a few things I like about the CZ-5, but enough things I don't like, including weight and balance, that keep me quite satisfied with all of my current Nokta and White's products.
