Have 2 hip mounts I made for mine, no other way to use the 1270, can swing all day. Yo answered your own question I use mine water hunting the depth is fantastic, All the coils go extremely deep, I have all of them. Like to use the 10.5 "Spider" coil zero buoyancy that way. I like 2 ways to set it for water that I use. Sens. high as you can go with keeping her stable, 0 Disc.DIG EVERY SIGNAL Silencer OFF (never use that anyway) Second wat the same setup but Iron disc. ON and set to reject BOBBYPINS. 1270 finds the gold in the water, Saltwater you'll have go with All metals and ad Sens. and Ground Comp. to make her steady, do mostly fresh water..

I had a 1270 and just couldn’t click with it on land.. it just seemed to like large iron way too much ..of course I was taken it places that already had hunted the bejesus out of..but I rigged mine up on long shaft so the control box was above my head for freshwater hunting and set it up in iron mode to reject bobby-pins like shooter described and it was awesome..found lots of tiny gold jewelry and of course the usual stuff,deep coins,earrings, the tiniest baby gold stud earring I ever found was with the 1270 while using the 12in coil.. they are fast and have great separation ....I watched the fisher factory utube video over and over to get a good understanding of it..
