I personaly attribute any improvement in unmasking ability of the Etrac to the Pro Coil more than I do any of the electronics. Stick one of the old 10" Explorer coils on the Etrac and I bet you'll see a difference. Those were terrible coils. One of the reasons they were so hard to pinpoint with was because of the sloppy magnetic field they generated, which also made seperation more of a pain with them. Thank god the 10" Tornado is a much better coil than those were.

You're right, you can't find what you can't see...And there in lies the real deciding factor when it comes to unmasking ability or more to the point recovery speed. The coil first has to be able to see the target in order for the machine to. The Pro Coil has made it easier for the Etrac to see distinctly between two targets without as much work IMHO. Not that it can't be done with say the 10" Tornado, but that it takes more effort. Like I've said a thousand times before, the 12x10 makes it much easier or should I say more effortless for the Sovereign to seperate targets. That's due to it's more sharpened and well defined detection field IMO.

Just the same, use the stock 10" Tornado and lay a dime on the ground with a big rusty old nail laying right next to it so close that they are touching. You can isolate the coin from the nail with no problem so long as you know how to use the coil. You can't get any closer than that for seperation or unmasking ability. The 12x10 makes this even more effortless. The edge of the detection line it generates is much sharper for laser like reaction between targets. Can the Sovereign be swung fast and still seperate targets. Nope, it can't. You have to slow down and work the coil around targets. That's just the way it goes, but with proper sweep speed and coil use recovery speed or unmasking ability is a non-issue. As I've said before, I prefer a slow recovery speed because I feel it grabs onto and holds deep targets better than a fast reseting machine does. I can address the recovery speed issue between targets by using the coil properly.

Critter...wiggles and waggles are totally different than coil control and overlap

yes Jim I like the E-Trac too

Test results for depths on coins and rings consist of many factors.
