Not really. Where are you, and what sort of soil conditions do you have? A GB of 5 would be the sort of thing I might expect at a saltwater beach, but not over real dirt unless it's highly mineralized.....like iron laden ground.

What happens when you deviate from that GB setting?
Also, do you have any other coils you can try?

Glad that you got it figured out, and that there's nothing wrong with your Xterra.

Also, if you haven't done so already, I highly recommend that you download Randy's FREE E-BOOK "Understanding Your Xterra". You'll find a link to it pinned at the top of the forum page. It's the absolute best reference available, AND IT'S FREE!

Glad you got it figured out. OL will set you straight. I trust what advice he gives. The 50 is a good machine. I think you'll like it when you swing it for a while.
