Background: I have decided to only use Etrac and an Equinox 600 and sell the rest of my detectors. I just got an Etrac this week.

Yesterday was my first outing with the Etrac. I have been reading the manual and playing with it indoors for several days while waiting for the rain to stop. We finally had enough sunshine to dry things out and I had about an hour to hunt before the rain started again. In my haste, I didn't realize I had left it on the sensitivity of manual 3 that I was using indoors. I went my in-laws house which was built in the 1930's and started searching in stock coins mode.

I actually found a 1944 wheat cent about 6 inches down. It was a strong signal in my headphones. I also found an interesting half dollar sized token from a bank. I haven't been able to date it yet.

Lesson learned, but impressive performance from such low gain.

That is impressive,I wouldn’t think it would hit that at that depth in that setting. Makes a guy wonder how hot you really have to run it and still get depth. Of course there are other factors involved but sensitivity is a big one!
