A Bold statement made by Makro with the R2....

Never even with my CoRe and Racer did I think in my wildest dreams it could get much better unmasking wise. The R2 has bumped it up quite a few notches. I'm still hunting, yes, same places we have hunted over 2 years. By myself mind you, it's "hunted" out, as far as most all machines go. Along comes the R2. Same old house lot's that have had probably 800 plus man hours with all types of machines and excellent detectorist running them. I visited these same places with R1 and dug some more stuff after slamming it with the CoRe, realizing then what these machines can do. I've mentioned before it's not about depth, more than we can imagine is hiding being masked by something or several things, mostly nails 1-5 inches deep. In my case modern through early 1800's stuff and trash. Not for the weak hearted trust me. Not in my wildest dreams did I think an iron audio could be hiding so much. I've dug a lot of coins that I'd bet you were not there since the R2. The tone break being adjustable also helps me being a coin hunter, just no where near as much as being able to drop that iron audio down to a slight sizzle buzz. I've dug several hundred coins +. Today dug my 20th silver that I knew was not there, with the R2! I, we don't dig that many in a year, any year, none of us, even all together. It's just been a month....... So much stuff masked and still there. A nuance I've came across that is probably 80-90% for me. I'm not moving the coil fast at all. In heavy trash/nails, 3 tone, second tone break at 79, max on audio tone, 700 khz. Middle tone at 400 khz, enough to be able to discern the machine is telling you something is there pitch difference. While swinging if you get a high tone tiny blip. While dissecting it if the TID does not climb into the mid 90's on some passes more than likely it's good metal, higher conductive coins for me. If it does get into the 90's I'm not digging coins. Just trash/iron/nails most all the time. You would be shocked at how much I have to disassemble my plugs to get at the targets there's so much metal in these places. I can't imagine them building much better of a machine but I will wait patiently because Makro/Nokta are setting a very high goal for the other companies. I'll say this, if you have an R2 and are not in the nastiest trashiest places you can hunt you just might be a fool. I'm impressed is all I can say........wild ride we are on here.
R2 Silver #20 this morning.

Total little over an hour hunt and the trash with the coins. I have hunted probably 50 or more times in this one small spot these came out of.

R2 silver that has been hiding. We've ran a bunch of machines over this place...........Hiding in plain sight!

Great post, I'm inspired to try and get out more with mine (but I need a decent site)....

curious if those spots were gone over with etrac's and ctx's?

Des yep the small coil, both, 5" and OOR.

CTX and ETrac don't stand a chance here. Ran both several times and so have my hunting co-horts, it's hunted out.

I think we may not be getting the full story. Yes the R2 is a great detector that can pull missed coins, but what isn't being said is that pulling those missed comes comes at the cost of digging far more trash. Alone the idea that if you run in all metal mode of course you will find some missed coins in a heavy rich site others missed, but it comes from digging all the trash out first.



The real treasure is in the hunt...

You will be shocked at how much small debri masking is going on. Yes I do and yes you will if you learn the R2.

If you are digging "far" more trash you haven't learned the machine yet. What you are going to do is dig the trash out of the holes with the targets. Just to dig trash thinking it's a good targets way less than most machines. Picking good stuff out of the trash is where they excel.

and experienced Deus users also?

Seeing that the R2 can find those after Etrac, CTX, and Deus is the strongest statement in the R2's behalf I've seen....awesome....

I think Makro will sell a ton of these with reports like yours...

Couldn't agree with you more, Jack. Ive had the same experience. Sites that I've certainty Sovreignized to death that are right next door are yielding nice old stuff. The more iron--the better.

I ran a Deus for over a year on these house lot's. It has a very high trash to good target ratio the Deus.

I am quite aware of how well you know the sovereign and all of its capabilities. Your statement concerning the R2 holds enormous weight.

Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.
