Target Size?

I've been a T2 guy for years. I can tell size and shape of most targets. I'm new to Minelab and the EQ. I've had about six hunts thus far and I've found silver and wheats etc but I can't tell the size of targets. I can dig a can just as easily as a coin. The only clue I've discovered is the pinpoint seems to show the size. How do you Minelab people know size of target by tones? Thanks!!

I have no idea, but it ought to be a bit easier with the small coil, if it ever hits the streets!

Looks like a good pinpointer is a must.

I've had no issues pin pointing with it but I use the function more to size targets with than to PP. I just use the wiggle back method. I guess pin pointing small nuggets with a large coil for years has helped, although, having a good pin pointer never hurts.

dont have the NOX yet but on my ML Safari I would also use the pinpoint feature to get an idea of the size of a target.

I just do an x pattern over the target while raising the coil if need be to determine the size of the target. Not 100 percent but it works pretty well.

Try jumping over into All Metal. This will give a more complete picture of a target. Using the cross sweep can also help--telling you a bit about the shape and consistency.

I haven't had the had the nox long enough to test it on cans. But with a minelab explorer if you lift the coil before pinpoint a coin-sized target will disappear quickly but a can will still sound off two or more inches up
