CZ3d

I have decided to enter the deep seekers competition at my next completion hunt. The targets will be 6 inches plus and are dime and quarter size. I know the reaction time of the cz3d is somewhat slow but feel how it locks on a coin will be an advantage. Any advise?

Never been in one, But I would say GB a Hair Positive. Run 0 Disc. And Sens. High as You can without falsing. On Most 3D's it is between 4-5. That would Be My advice even though some like a Neutral GB, I think slight Positive in "MY" ground gets a Hair More depth.
Be sure and let us know How it goes as Curious what Top Machines are.

Harold thanks for the advise. I will probably run discrimination near dime to keep from digging trash.I don't have many hours on the cz3d so how do you set a slightly positive ground balance?

A slightly Positive GB would Be a little rise in threshold as you get about a inch from the ground when GBing Detector in Auto tune. And just listen for the Highest Tone to avoid digging trash with 0 Disc.

I can't answer you from personal experience because to me hunting planted targets is akin to going big game hunting at the zoo.:crylol:

But f I was, based on your list of detectors, I'd want to know how much deeper than 6" these targets would be planted.

If not much deeper than 6", I'd probably go with the Cibola because it handles a fast sweep speed much better.

marcomo thanks for the advise. You should try a seeded hunt with an open mind.They are fun.

No Texan, that won't happen. But that's OK. There are a lot of different ways to enjoy our wonderful hobby.

Keep us posted on what detector you wind up taking and how you do on that deep hunt.

Learned a lesson about cz3d and deep seekers competition. Depth is good and reaction time is fine but there is a big problem with other machines interfering.

Was interference a problem in both 5 and 15 kHz?

George Paine wrote years ago that 15 kHz is the closest frequency to 60 cycle interference.N/T

Texan, what I was asking was if the interference was a problem in both the salt and enhanced modes?

Was one mode worse than the other?

Didn't try salt mode

The enhanced mode frequency on the cz-3d runs at 5 kHz and the salt mode at 15 kHz.

When I've had EMI issues, the first thing I do is try the other mode. Sometimes that will clear it up without having to reduce sensitivity.
