This is one of the best threads I've read. One can tell the replies were made by veteran hunters. It takes time to feel your on the same page as your machine.
The modern machines I believe are made to interest the younger computer savie guys. Taking time to sift threw programs before you dig. I dunno about that.

I’m relatively new at detecting 3 years and have owed 4 different detectors 1 was brand new my nox I see a lot of guys going to fast coil to high above the ground just not taking their time I’m no expert but I pull some serious silver and my first gold coin but I’m a slow and meticulous hunter and always circle a questionable signal and it pays off.
Just take your time get to know your machine a lot of the areas I hunt were hunted for years hard and they still produce sometimes with the nox or the Deus.

Yes, a very experienced user with his $500.00 metal detector will dig a lot more good finds than a new user will with a $2500.00 machine.

As already mentioned - these days, way to much attention is being paid to owning the "next new greatest detector" - it's settings - what frequencies to run in, what coil to use, etc.

The formula for making great finds is simpler than most people realize -

(1) Operator skill level is critical - know your detector inside out by spending a lot of time in the field using it.
(2) Research is key - taking the time to do research will often lead you to sites that have not been hunted to death.
(3) Any good operator - even with a mid quality detector will make great find at these sites.

Good Hunting !

Thanks everyone for reading or replying to My Thoughts, reading your comment's I have learned a lot from you. What keeps us going in this sport is the unknown, what adventures are waiting for us around the next corner. The wonder of what the next signal will bring and the opportunity to be able to have that new adventure each time we go out. After all these years it is still exciting, the wonder has not faded and that next signal puts a smile on your face. The adventure never gets old, stay safe and enjoy this great hobby.
