DX-1 question for Ralph

Hey Ralph,
I've been using the Invader DX-1 for a while now and frankly, i'm not impresed with it.
In the past i have used your probe on the Minelab Explorer and i was very impressed with that one.
I could dig a half basketball sized plug and that probe would find the taget anywhere in it with ease.
With my DX-1 i have to be allmost touching the target to get a reading.
Now i suspect that my DFX may be having some depth issues and it is on it's way to White's for a checkup,
but my question to you is should i have my DX-1 checked out also ?
Do you offer this service ?
I also have an XL-1 on my Classic IDX -Pro and it's performance isn't much better than my DX-1.
I know that the IDX has no issues tho, it works pefectly fine.

Am i proud to be an American ?
Why no.........
I am humbled to be an American.
Tho, as of late, sometimes embarassed.

At birth, God bestowed upon each of us the most important responsibility there will.

Like all in-line probes, the detector settings will determine the depth of the probe as well as the search coil. If you are using factory pre-set or near factory pre-set settings you will not get the depth that you are expecting. I suggest going to the DFX Classroom, etc. to get help with settings from other users of the DX-1. As for the XL-1 try turning up the sensitivity while in probe mode which should maximize the depth capability of the probe. If you feel there are other issues with the probes you may e-mail, PM or call me. Thank you.

I had my DC set at 50 and AC at 85......... my DX-1 worked great. It is in how sensitive you have your detector set.

Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.

Thanx Larry, i'll try to remember his when my DFX comes back.N/T
