Anybody use MXT pro 7 tone ID in relic mode?

Just wondering if anybody uses the MXT pro with 7 tone ID in relic mode? I was warned about switching from that mode back to C&J mode which I guess will make the detector knock out the pull tab range. I don't plan to switch back to C&J mode once in relic 7 tone ID but was wondering if anybody had any problems using the relic 7 tone ID, does that mode still keep the pull tab range? I haven't had a chance to use mine yet. HH

I used to use the 7 tone relic mode. Some call Alt mode some call it a trick anyway, a couple years ago for most of the hunting season I used Alt relic and was all about it. My finds increased quite alot. I dont think it discs anything out but just doesn't sound quite right. I never wanted to go back to C&J after that. So not sure on that.
I now use the Alt mode Prospecting with Dual Control to Hyper SAT. At first seemed a little noisy because everything has a tone and VDI. No discriminating out. After discovering this, Relic mode just sounded dumb to me. I will admit that this mode loves bottle caps and some bent nails or old rusty iron with a hole in it. Results vary depending on coil. My finds have greatly increased but so has my dig count.
Sorry it has been a while so hard to remember much and cant test. Had to send to Sweet Home.
Hope this helps a little. Hope more chime in with their experiences cause this truely is what saved my Pro. Detech 8x6 helps too.

I dig with and because of my DAD!

I've tried the technique of bringing the seven tones into the Relic mode and it worked but I didn't see much advantage over the two tones of the regular Relic mode. I have the MXT Pro and it didn't notch out pull tabs after going back to C&J. I will try the 7 tone trick some more when I get a chance. I'm not sure what I did different but one time after I went back to C&J it notched out my gold wedding ring until I pressed the Ground Grab button which restored the two tones and brought gold back.
I would be cautious about that problem if using the 7 tone technique/trick.
