TTF all the way for me! :thumbup: I don't use anything else. Most other options and settings are wasted on me.! TTF Rules..

OK so I have been giving it a try, my question is when you hear the low grunt and higher pitch sound at pretty near the same time, then do the wiggle to isolate the higher pitch, I do not seem to find anything. Do you pay attention to the numbers or not? I am really confused by this, but do not want to give up on it.

Sometimes you have to, or will dig both signals. If the junk comes out first, don't give up! Yes, I glance at the conducive numbers only if the target is deeper than 5 inches, you already know what the iron numbers will be. But, A really deep grunt could also be something good, it all depends on what kind of area you're hunting, ie. civil war, old homestead, city park etc. etc. HH and good luck.......nge

I am trying to learn TTF also and can somebody tell me are the CO #'s pretty much the same as when in multi tone conduct settings? I thought I remember G4E saying that the numbers could be different in TTF. I know to go by the audio more so but still need to check #'s when a potential target is found I would think.. This TTF seems to be a little tough for me to get the hang of... A lot of noise but I know it works for a lot of people so I need to figure it out..

I decided to try TTF in a small park that's given me a lot of silver, but which I've scoured pretty thoroughly by now. In two brief hunts I got three old wheat pennies, a cub scouts bob cat pin and a 1906 V-nickel. All of these targets were right next to iron targets, which would be why they were still there after all the times I've been over then in conductive. It's a much more annoying way to hunt than in conductive, but it does hit those targets that you won't hit otherwise. It wouldn't be usable at sites where there was a lot of trash other than iron.

I have tried different things, before I read this, in those high null areas....and I have great success with the 4 tone, open screen with just lower iron blocked, trash high, deep on, fast on, auto +2.... just seems to work for me...

It would be great if on the next model E-trac (if ever one is made), there should be a button to instantly put you in TTF

I gave it a couple of tries today and see it's benefits right away, first place didn't have a lot of iron but it was a good place to start out with it and I got about 40 cents and a small heart cross, went back out for a bit this evening in a yard that is loaded with iron and dug two pennies and a generic bread token ... I've never been able to pull anything out of there due to all the iron ... used the stock relic mode

Sounds strange, but the E-Trac responds to gold and nickles the same as everything that isn't iron...
Iron will give a low tone, and everything else (and I mean everything) will give a high tone...

Found 60 Merc dimes at a park that had early homes on its edge. All homes burned down in the 50s. Hunted the spot for yrs used the etrac got a mixed signal and BOOM BABY. Couldn't resist!!!! There was a tusty decomposing can with a cloth like a chamois and in the center partially wrapped in the cloth. 60!!!! Merc dimes 1916 thru 1943. HH c t
