Got a few today

Hit the local park and pulled some clad,and a pair of silver quarters with the f5..The slq is beat up with no date but I'll take it..the Washington was masked by a screwcap,dug the screwcap and closed the plug..swing over it and get a high-tone a few inches over.. Flipped the plug back out,dug another alongside it and out comes the Washington.
If I'd have had a concentric coil I'd have never dug the screwcap,and never recovered the Washington.

Tom, you are really liking that F5. I found many silvers with that setup. I found a very deep Barber quarter with a rusty nail directly on top of it. It came out rusty. I also believe the 11 inch dd coil is the perfect coil for that detector.

I've gone all year and haven't found a silver quarter, nice finds right there. I did get some silver dimes so that was pretty good for me.

Nice Finds that were most likely missed many times before. Nice hunting.

I guess it depends on where you hunt mainly and what value you put on different detector characteristics. All I can say is that the Xterra vs F5 is like comparing apples and oranges. The biggest issues I had with the XTerra was the slow recovery speed and funky tones (that of course is subjective).



Active detectors and accessories: Fisher F19 LTD on Mars universal shaft, F19 on original shaft, Nokta Fors CoRe, Whites MX7, Makro and Nokta pointers. Killer B's and Jolly Rogers headphones and assorted coils.
Previous detectors in order of acquisition: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Fisher F5, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705
