Simplex + users: What Disc. settings for the 4 Disc. modes?

May 15, 2021 08:09AM avatar
I'm curious what Discrimination rejection preferences you Simplex + users typically hunt with. Both WHAT rejection segments you chose, and WHY you like that set-up.

I've been in a discussion with a couple of Simplex-using friends about settings and it has been interesting, so I thought I'd post a quetion to find out how others like to hunt.

Also, I m curious which of the four Discriminate mode you favor, in the order of preference? For urban Coin Hunting or for remote Relic Hunting sites, here are my preferences:

1st choice: Park 1 'mode' ... I enjoy the 3-Tone audio and reject only the first Discrimination segment.

2nd choice: Beach 'mode' ... I prefer the Non-VCO, 2-Tone audio and have no Discrimination segments selected.

3rd choice: Field 'mode' ... I like the VCO enhanced 2-Tone audio, at times, and have no Discrimination segments selected.

4th choice: Park 2 'mode' ... I virtually never use it so don't pay attention to my settings.

So far the majority of the places I hunt with the Simplex +, coins haven't been all that deep and I get very good in-the-field performance from Park 1 and Beach modes. In ares where I might get slightly better depth-of-detection I will use the Field mode which is just a bit deeper than the Beach mode.
