First hunt with the LRP

Well ,after two weeks of work and family priorities- I finally got out for about 4 hours yesterday.
My neighbor, is a widow in her late 80's.She owns several hundred acres of farmland here in middle Tennessee.
I asked permission, and she said ,I am welcome anytime.so I am digging my first target , when she walks over and asks me if I had found anything yet, I said no.After some small talk ,she states that her house was built in 1965, on the exact spot of a 150 year old home, which her husband bulldozed into its cellar.
I knew her husband really well and he had let me hunt 3 vacant fields but I never foundany coins or even decent relics.
Lol, I had walked past this "modern house a hundred times, but with this new info, now I was hunting a known pre civil war home site.
I only found 3 coins a 1941 wheaties, a 1969 Rosie, and my first silver a 1964 Rosie , all coins were 4-5 inches. I got a fake snap on earring, and a partial piece to a hubley star cap gun,then lastly a copper button at 7 inches its tiny about 3/8 in diameter.
The lRP is really awesome, this site is brutal on the ears with all the low iron grunts every inch of ground. I hunted in disc 4, then switched to all metal to get more stable vdi numbers. The button was really hard to pinpoint, and I almost gave up, without a pinpointer I had to wave fistfuls of loose dirt across the coil, in the first 5 handfuls of dirt the infamous grunt of iron, little pieces of nails that crumbled when rubbed between my fingers. The button was way deep, digging 7 inches in hard packed dirt sucks. But I now know that this machine has superb separation. When I got home I layed a nickel on the floor and a screw next to it, literally touching and it only had problems in the preset modes, in all disc modes and all metal it clearly showed the nickel ,although it lowers the vdi number and is really jumpy and sounds junky,because of the screw. Alot of machine and alot easier than my f70 that I sold because I just never got comfortable with it( lots of falsing) .
Great to be out hunting with what I consider a very fine metal detector.

Nice write up Toddsant

You are correct in that the preset modes are just not as sensitive as Modes 2,3,4 and AM. Depth suffers about 10% as well in air tests.

I have always figured that the LRP is about 80% of most professional machines. The first 80% is about $280 in the LRP. If you seek professional depth, build and filters you can pay up to $1000 more for that extra 20%.

AM can get 11" on coins with the 11" DD. That's all the further I dig.

Amen brother, I hunted again today , the separation in fields of nails is really amazing, my buddy was hunting with me with his whites prism2 and he had a ruff time in pareas that are literally nail choked, I was still able to find a couple of small relics including a 1/4 inch brass washer at 5 inches. The lrp is a bit jumpy when iron is really close to a target but it still lets me know " hey there is something else here". Loving this machine

Check this out. Can the LRP find small stuff?

This cap thing was found after I dug a 4" hole. The snap was another 4" hole. I took the pic with a few clad I found the same day as reference. Both small objects rang up a constant zinc without fluctuation. Very little trash compared to clad/jewelry the more I use the LRP.

MetalDetectorJudge rates the LRP 4.8 stars beating out both the Ace 250/350, the F2 and Whites Coinmaster series. It is at the top of the list even a point above the AT Pro. The comparison is done by performance to dollar value.

If you are in search for a powerful but light metal detector, this MD should be at the top of your shopping list.This is not your regular metal detector, the unit carries multiple features which are aimed at pro hunters and will always give you a clear mental image of the targets in the ground.
