F70 best tones for coinshooting
Posted by: pescadore

I am getting a new to me F70 and anxious to do a little pre-learning about this detector. I am primarily a coinshooter and hunt parks, playgrounds, old homesteads and old property. I was curious what tones would be best for coinshooting. I was thinking I will like 4H but was wanting some opinions of experienced users of this machine. I will have the 11"DD, 10" elliptical concentric, and 5" coils.

I used 4H for months after I got mine because it was similar to the F2 I moved up from.
Hunting parks for coins and jewelry I didn't have to look at the screen, I could just listen closely for decent tones.
I always could find nickels but that high nickel tone helped me find more than ever before...not to mention a big gold ring hiding in heavy trash on only my 4th hunt with the thing thanks to that high 4H tone.
Nowadays I use DP more in the same situation and others depending on the site and conditions but using 4H is still a great way to do it.

F70/F75, the same. (I swing the latter) For me, it depends somewhat on the site. If I am hunting really old ground I use 4H mostly, unless heavily trashed. In heavy trash or in not so old ground I run 3H tones. HH jim tn

Thanks, Looked like 4H would suit me best but just wanted some input.
