took the Racer 2 to a local park and found a bunch of coins in a small area. At the end of the video I dig a deep target.

I have the Deus and the MR2. The MR2 with the small coil kills it in the iron....better than the Deus,



Arnie from South Texas
XP Deus - Whites V3i - Fisher F75 - Garrett AT Gold - Makro R2 - Tesoro Compadre
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Best Coin 1882-CC $5 Gold Coin (Texas)
Oldest Silver 1821 Mexican Coin (Texas)
Oldest Coin 1773 Virginia Half Penny (Langley AFB VA)
Best Relic - T. Miller CS Button Alberts #26

Love the history and the hunt but the best is watching my kids make their own finds.

I am getting ate up with screw caps , can slaw and such. All kinds of non ferrous junk coming up in the mid 80's to low 90's.

:thumbup: A definite plus to the Racer 2 & small coils.N/T

I guess you might want to change your 'handle' if you prefer NOT to find a lot of trash. :lmfao: Of course Trashignorer wouldn't be so good either as it would suggest you would be using a lot of Discrimination and over-relying on visual TID to try and not dig any junk.

A couple of comments here, and to start with, most screw caps, can slaw and other aluminum-based junk is going to have a higher-conductive range read-out with any detector. Higher-conductive scrap metal tends to run in the 70's to low '90s, and the only way to try and classify it as a non-coin type target is to isolate it with a methodical sweep and check for how solid the response repeats compared to a more jumpy or random response for some odd-sizes or shaped objects.

The Racer 2 is my main-use detector for urban Coin Hunting where bottle caps, screw caps, pull tabs and can slaw container remnants seems to abound in and around picnic areas, etc. I don't dig it all, but I will dig my share just because I am after good targets and realize I am hunting a location that typically has a lot of higher-conductive junk that can mimic desired coins and such. I also know that if hunting a site that has a surplus of that type of trash annoys me, there are plenty of places to go where there is little, if any, 'can slaw,' and a notable reduction in screw caps, bottle caps and similar trash.

Site location is the key to how much junk we deal with and the type/conductivity of junk encountered.
