Minelabs don't like freshly buried targets for one thing. A better test would be on a coin or ring that has sat in the ground for several months. Also, next time you try the test try lowering the sensitivity on the Excal down. I've found that maxing out sensitivity to the edge of stability doesn't always give best depth. Targets will degrade or completely null sometimes at max stable sensitivity. This was in particular true of the 15x12 coil but I've found on occasion that it's true for the stock 10" coil and the 12x10, though most of the time they want to ride the edge of stability. Much of the reason behind this depends on the soil matrix and any nearby RF noise. That's why I like to stick a silver dime in the ground and play with sensitivity first at a new site. On those occasions where it wanted a lower sensitivity it was often at about the 1 to 2PM position, or right around the "C" in the word noise cancel on the GT's face plate. The other odd thing is that the lower I set sensitivity the faster it wants the sweep speed, while the higher I set sensitivity the slower it wants me to sweep.

Critter...wiggles and waggles are totally different than coil control and overlap

yes Jim I like the E-Trac too

Test results for depths on coins and rings consist of many factors.
