Well I did a air test before I shipped it and it was 10-3/4" after I got it back from Tom I am now getting a dime right at 12 inches before it starts breaking up. So it's a hot one. :hot:

Sent my cz6a to Tom in October....It tests in his soil at 12.3" with my 10.5" coil....Tests at 11.2" with the 8" coil....He told me it was a good 20 yr. old unit and should be good for another 20 yrs. Tom is a great guy to deal with...Turn around was less than a week....

Yes sir Tom is a very nice fellow to deal with and he knows how to get the most out of a CZ when he tunes them. And his report blew my mind at how in depth it was.

He may be able to squeeze out a half to one inch. Let us know what he has to say about your unit.

Tom received my CZ3D on Thursday and sent it out on Saturday.
He told me he made some corrections in calibrations and bumped up a few things and the CZ3D is now hitting a dime at 11" in his dirt and is really stable. And that is with the 8" coil.
I'm pretty happy with those results considering it was only air testing a dime at 9.5" before I sent it in.



Nothing like seeing GOLD in the scoop !!!

Sounds like he worked his magic on it Lake Hunter let us know how you do on a hunt with it when you get a chance to use it. I haven't had a chance to use mine yet to much rain and working six days a week kinda keeps you tied up and unable to hunt.

Bob, he charges $100.

Well worth it, but understand that the main advantage of his service is not additional depth. Depth increase is relatively minimal. What I've seen from detectors he's calibrated and validated for me and others, you can expect a depth increase between nothing and half an inch.

Tom is a national treasure and his knowledge and experience combined with technological discipline in testing is unmatched. On top of that he is a first rate person to deal with. CZs are his specialty but his expertise covers a wide gamut of machines.

Not expecting or wanting a whole lot more depth. Shoot, they were depth demons right out of the box when they came out. But, I just bought a closet queen cz6a and want to make sure it's working right for this spring. Feeling good about your equipment is very calming ......

Yes sir feeling good about your equipment is very important. You don't see deer hunters hitting the woods without first making sure their rifles are sighted in.

That is a bit subjective a measure as to where the exact point of detection falls. I don't put a ton of faith in most people's rating beyond give or take an inch and settings are critical, too. I am, however, a believer in Tom's exactitude. MHO

Jerry it's air testing 12" in my ground it's hitting my 8" inch dime my soil is red clay mineralized dirt. In auto-tune (all-metal) mode it hits my 10" dime but in normal mode it calls it iron.
