A Positive Response to the Buffalo Nickel swept Crosswise as in the Video:

• Nokta FORS CoRe w/'OOR' DD coil ... (All 2 & 3 Tone modes to Accept Nails. then to Reject nails then at Ferrous Reject.)
Nokta / Makro Simplex+ w/11" DD coil ... (All three modes w/Zero Disc., Reject 1-Bar (nails), and Reject 3-Bars (ferrous range).)
• XP ORX w/5X9½ DD HF coil
• XP ORX w/9" X35 DD coil

The audio response from the Simplex+ was actually one of then better I received, too.

And note that I used all 3 of the silent-search Discriminate modes, and with each of them I checked it with NO discrimination, or all notch segments accepted, and then with 1-Bar rejected which would cover the '0' to '5' VDI range and nails are typically '2' to '4'. Then I bumped it up to reject the first 3-Bars, and that is the ferrous range with a '15' break-point between Ferrous and Non-Ferrous.

None of these models gave a good hit on the 5¢ when swept 'lengthwise' with the Nails and the coil centered across the 5¢ piece, but 'crosswise' all of these models did well.

The more I use the Simplex+ the more I enjoy using it and am impressed with the performance in open areas with a big 11" DD coil. I'll re-test when they get smaller sizes coils out for it.

A response and a PM reply, too. (It hits the 5¢ coin just fine!) Attachments
