Nice guess, Todd, but how many were correct?

Only one, the Nokta FORS CoRe w/'OOR' DD coil, was able to reject the rusty nail and produce 4 digable signals, both directions across and both directions lengthwise.

The two Tesoro's, each with a 6" Concentric coil and Disc. at minimum so nails and most iron was rejected, only gave a two-way response when swept lengthwise, and then only with a very slow, deliberate sweep. If a 'normal' sweep speed you can forget it.

My modified White's Classic ID with the small 5½' Concentric Ferret coil, with the Disc. set close to the 10 o'clock position to just reject the iron nail, gave no dig-worth response in any direction regardless of how slow I swept the coil.

Note that the Tesoro's and modified Classic ID are still some of the best detectors I use in debris-filled ghost towns and such, and also for almost all of my urban tot-lot hunting and other grab-and-go needs. They work well with iron close to a desired target, but are challenged with the nail laying on top of the favorable target.

The Teknetics Omega 8000 V.4 was one of my very favorite urban Coin Hunting detectors for five years, 3 of 2010 thru 6 of 2015, and I've missed it for three years because I like it, and because it is very light weight which is important for me due to my mobility issues. I added it back into my Detector Team and bought a 7" Concentric coil for it that will be used most often. I've hunted old sites with them I the past and found stuff, in the less trashy areas. And I can also tell you I have hunted old sites with them and NOT found stuff because they do not handle rejected-target processing well to recover to hunt in dense iron debris.

This is the Version 4, which I prefer, and it has the '40' VDI ferrous/non-ferrous break point. It only requires a Disc. setting of '17' to just barely reject the iron nails and that's how I tested it. I used both the 7" Concentric coil and the slightly under 5" Double-D coil with that low nail reject setting and used both 2-Tone and 3-Tone audio functions. Nothing! Not lengthwise or crosswise, absolutely nothing. That's why it is on-hand as an urban Coin Hunting unit and not a ghost town favorite.

Only the CoRe was correct in your guess.
