Which model of Vista would you choose for civil war relic hunting in Tennessee and Virginia? One that would be good on lead, brass and copper. Thanks.

Dirt hunter I use a vista smart and live in middle Tennessee, works great in iron sites with super 6 coil , goes deep in boost mode. I am sure warrior and other vista users can chime in with their opinions

DH, Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Anyway, I would go either with the Warrior or the Smart Plus. Both will work perfectly for what you want. Richard

The Warrior (18 khz) has the Gain function that will boost the audio allowing you to hear hidden targets in the returning signal that would normally be hidden or very low audibly. There isn't an iron volume or a pinpoint feature. The boost and modes are on the face plate of the display instead of being triggers on either side on the bottom.

Smart Plus : 15.5 khz The Plus doesn't have the Gain Function.
It has the Pinpoint Button. ( In an iron infested area, using the PP can easily throw you off because of iron everywhere, I have found it is better to X the target instead) In normal areas, it is a great function.
There is a Iron Volume. I use this function a lot. The first time I hunt an area, I may leave it close to high volume but if it is an area where there is a lot of iron and only a few non-ferrous targets, I turn it to about the 9 o'clock position. That allows me to hear the definition of the high tone better without having the low tone audibly override my hearing. If you choose, you can turn it totally off and the high tone audio will be "complete" in that there is no infringement by the iron volume.

Overall, either one, will provide fantastic results. All the DeepTech Detectors do a wonderful job but their ability is there all along, it is a matter of interrupting what they are telling you and that takes time.

Too, a factor to take into consideration when I mention the above is that the way I hunt is totally different than most. My explanation is going to be about hunting an old house or campsite that has been hunted for years and literally a bed of iron. Most folks don't like to hunt areas like this but
for me it is a challenge. Sure I like a site that no one has ever hunted but the pounded sites get my adrenalin going,too.

BTW, It doesn't take much to make me happy, waking up and realizing I'm still alive, tickles me. Finding an old coin under a bed of nails, puts my blood pressure up in the stroke area. Richard
