Just got a CZ6A and having issues:blink:

I have gone on a couple hunts with my CZ6A and I'm having problems distinguishing coins from bent rusty nails, I know I need to give it some time to learn the sounds but I was wondering if there were any tips or tricks to make it easier. Some of the nails I hit from different directions and they still sounded like something to dig.

I found your issue to be normal. The CZ's love deep rusty nails and iron type targets and will many, many times indicate their a good target.
That said some times it will be deep silver.but not always . Your ring and nickel finds should increase too. As the Cz's love nickel range items.

Remember there is NO Perfect detector.

Hello Coinspader, give it some time your settings with be fine but keep your sensitivity 3-4 . Ground balance is a must for the best performance. When you get a good target sound in two directions, then turn 90 degrees , if you still have good sounds ...... dig it. But here’s the best tip ....... when you pinpoint your target, good targets will be a very tight audio blip and most rusty iron targets will have elongated lengthy pinpoints. Also when an iffy signal occurs the pinpoint my have two beeps, meaning probably a good target co-located (masked) with iron. With the volume at 5 or less you will have modulated audio (deep audio-soft but repeatable), how I run it . Volume above 5 makes all targets sound the same.... shallow or deep will be loud. My CZ5 has been my go to machine for 24 years now and still outperforms lots of high end detectors. Any other questions, just ask and I will try to help out . HH Tony

Thanks for your input, I can't wait to get out and try it, these machines have a great rep and now I have a better idea of what to listen for. Thanks again! :detecting:

Your settings are good....hunt in disc 0 for a while to get your ear trained. Iron will start to sound different than deep coins and will not repeat as a high tone when you sweep and circle the target. I always hunt in 0 disc...I like listening to all targets. In iron laden sites it may drive you a bit crazy but when that sweet high tone hits it's always a nice sound.

Do not use too much sensitivity...4-5 is good enough. Always check the GB every few minutes. Soil conditions can change in a matter of minutes so you want to make sure the CZ is ground balanced correctly.

Sweep slow and use the pin point button to get an idea on how big the target is.

Deep coins (especially silver ones) will have this sweet, subtle high tone that is different than deep iron. But it takes time to learn...and a really good set of headphones.

I have a CZ document I put together from posts here on the forum and in other forums I can send you. Just PM me your e-mail address.

Sweep speed can help a good bit. In disc 0, if it is breaking high tone, slow the sweep down; way down. If it moves to low tone and stays low tone with a very slow sweep, that is what it is. That, and sizing a target and a possible two blips in pinpoint can help ID iron vs non-iron.

Got out with the machine today and had a much improved experience, Only dug a couple nails and managed to get some coins including a wheat penny. Pretty much dug all the non ferrous tones that were 6" deep or more just to see what came up and I discovered that my CZ6A has a very accurate target ID. I think I"m falling in love.:spin:

Google Mikes CZ page...a bible for CZ users...With practice you will dig few nails and go deeper than the average bear....
