Re: Congrats on the successful year, Brian!

December 02, 2017 04:26PM
Thank you Monte...and yes, it's been a good year for me for gold. Hit my target coin total early, so all around it's been good to get out a few times.

Now, here are few questions for you. You can respond here, but the last one I'd appreciate you e-mailing to me.

Questions:

► I believe you currently own three (3) detectors. A White's M6, Spectra V3i and MX Sport, is that correct?
This is correct

► Of all the detectors you own, in what order do they get used the most-to-the-least? If i'm hunting chip playgrounds or in the weather, the MX Sport is the primary detector. When i can easily dig everything, this machine is excellent and tell me all I need to know. Most old use sites or old ballfields i use the V3i. When i have to dig deep or deal w/ tough conditions, i utilize the features the V3i offers to maximize my target recognition and dig time. The M6 doesn't see much use, but on occasion i dust it off. For instance, the planted hunt we had a 2 years ago in Arlington. It has a really fast recovery, so those near surface finds rang up nicely on a very fast swing which allows me to cover a lot of ground.

► What is your one / most favorite search coil to use, most of the time, for each detector model? I almost always use the 7" detech on the MX sport. Really good differentiation, and good depth as well. Almost makes the 10" unnecessary. On the V3i, i primarily use the 10"DD, but will also use the Bullseye 5.3 as you saw in ghost towns, and i use it in bark chips on occasion. I also use the 13" detech if i'm trying to really get deep and find things others have missed in old Portland parks. Problem is that big coil catches everything underneath it, so if there is much trash, it's not very useful. The 10" is a surprisingly good in moderate trash to clean areas, but doesn't do so well in a ghost town environment. When i bring out the M6, i typically use the 9.5" concentric for general purpose, or the 5.3 Bullseye in a place like a ghost town.

► Which detector / coil combination gave you the most success on gold jewelry this year? I found more gold with the MX sport because i found it to be the best choice for the playgrounds. Quick to adjust for iron interference and killer on small targets. I did find several items with the V3i however, including a 24g piece of what appears to be a 10k gold....which rang up a steady Zero.

One more, but I'd like you to e-mail this to me: ► What settings have you saved for each program in your MX Sport? Check your inbox.

Thanks, and always look ahead to what 2018 might bring you.

Monte

PS: The last question is because I want to evaluate some settings used by a few folks on their MX Sport as I'm working up my setting preferences on my new MX7.[/quote]
