Just wondering does the disc crap out in the culpeper soil and or will the all metal keep working ? and does the detector use a concentric or DD coil ?

Dennis Cox uses an old dmc 1 and he digs his butt off. I don't know how but he does.

I used a IIb at Beauregard Farm and did great. I set the disc at 10, kept the coil a few inches off the ground, and dug everything I normally would in good soil. I was told the IIb wouldn't work in bad ground but I found that not to be the case. The key was to not scrub the ground or it would buzz on the all metal side. I dug bullets behind other diggers who just walked past them.

I'm glad Shenandoah posted that It can handle hot ground as a bunch of now it alls on another forum keep sayin' it can't! They say it is only deep in mild''wussie soil'' as they put it. Obviously they just don't know how to use one.

I also agree with Harold and SD,used one for years and never had a problem with any soil types......most of my finds over the years,and best finds,came while using a 2b.

I dug the deepest coin I ever dug, a large cent at a true 18 inches, with a IIba on our farm in the Shenandoah valley. The soil is Culpeper bad. I got a faint all metal signal, and occasionally a disc chirp. I knew it was deep and nonferrous. That was enough for me. I grew up detecting on this property, so I thought all soil was like that. It's just normal for me and the Nautilus has never let me down. Just wish someone would buy the company and continue making them. Don't need anything new, just keep doing what they've been doing.

The stock coil is Concentric (High Q). For troublesome areas you had the option of Low Q Triaxial Concentrics. Even in the U.K. there's soil where the maximum depth with the stock coil (8") is two inches.
