LRP All Metal mode

Today, in my continuing attempt at learning the LRP language, I wanted to spend time in the All Metal mode. What a surprise.

First, I never really used it very much concentrating on discrimination and presets. But today, the LRP blew my mind. In the AM mode, ground balance can be done by Ground Grab or manually. As a matter of fact, you can GG, then set the ground balance on a slight negative for better swing data. On the Tesoro's you can do this and turn the knob back a quarter turn to get a negative. On the Land Ranger Pro, you can be more precise with the + and - buttons and digital display.

In all metal the LRP is operating at full throttle. But some nice features are included that Tesoro's don't have and many other detectors don't use.

The TID still IDs the target conductivity and displays it. The somewhat running depth display is working as well, though these are usually useless. And the VCO works admirably well in giving an idea of depth ratio.

One thing I also noticed that I hadn't before..........the target ID has a better lock and doesn't travel the scale as bad as it does in discrimination. I have a hard time in finding nickels because of this, and found 2 right off of the bat. The only draw back is hearing all the iron targets, which I personally notch since I am a coin and jewelry hunter.

In the park there is a lot of iron and trash. With a Tesoro, you have to thumb the disc knob to get an idea of what the target is. The LRP gives you that information on the screen in numeric ID and segments. Tesoro gives a single tone. In AM the tone is single but the VCO gives and idea of depth to metal ratio.

I use Tesoro because I felt like I was using my older Tesoro's yet with a screen better than my Deleon. And the funny thing is that the Land Ranger Pro sells for the same price as the Tesoro Silver MicroMax. And they weigh about the same.

The LRP may not compete with the $1000-$1500 detectors, but it sure tries to.

i just thought i would agree with you . you covered a lot of pluses about the lrp again i agree with you it is a very worthy machine and needs more recoginition than its getting. but i suppose if a lot of people had one then you
could not be one of the few always saying good things about the lrp

People who hear Bounty Hunter think the old 6.6 machines. Little do many know that the new Pros are as capable as Teknetic Greeks and newer Fishers and are built on the same platform. I'm glad you brought up the fact that the Greek coils (with Craigs converter) does a better job for the LRP over the cheaper coils that are standard. For less than $10 it opens up a whole new world of possibilities that the LRP is capable of.

Now, to work on that flimsy PP button.

I think a lot of the problems with the lrp is the ole stigma '' BOUNTY HUNTER" people do not realize that dave j. has revolutionized metal detecting with the t2 ,f75 and now the lrp once you use the lrp you realize that this is not your grandfathers bounty hunter. other companies should be scrambling to match either one of these units for depth speed and the ability [with the right coil] to see through trash.I think in the future metal detectors will have to reach the first texas hallmark or be left in the dust. granted there are issues but not in the ability to find targets. I think that a lot of it is having the right unit for the job and Teknetics Fisher and Bounty Hunter are the ones to have. if i go out and pull silver at 9 inches or gold rings at 7or 8 inches why should i buy an e track or atx i have more fun with the lrp i try to hunt every day and i am really satisfied with the lrp
of course .... in my humble opinion

Dave J told me that Jorge Saad and Yang Yi were the engineers responsible for the LRP, QDP and LSP.

They are all part of the same company , different divisions , pretty sure they do bat back and fourth ideas, any how First Texas is growing with new products and ideas. other companys dont really seam to be awake yet ,to the needs of detectorists who want cutting edge tecnologies. my hats off to dave j. lead engineer...

I hate that pp button,but now I can pinpoint without using it .Other than that it is a really good unit ,especially running no disc in trahy iron sites!!

HI
just thought i would make a comment, here goes
i think all detectors should have a toggle switch some of us older people have issues with our hands and fingers, i know for me its hard to push the buttons with out using two hands .i know over the years i have had more trouble with pushbuttons than toggle switches,for years i would only buy whites for that very reason. if only the engineers would spend a little time and
think about seniors and disabilities. eyes and hands. for some of us we have been detecting basically all of our lives and its hard enough to make the changes in our own lifestyles to accomadate age so we can still detect
