DeepTech Vista's shoot out video's I have done so far

I have the Vista Gold and the Vista RG 1000 and Jevelin sent me the Vista Relic and the Vista Smart down for some comparison testing and in field unit testing..

I live in the North Ga...Iron clay iron ore type dirt..very minerlized...So result's can vary from one place to another...

Heres a comparison video on planted target's..These target's are well past the norm for detector's and are desinged just for this line...Use to the 10 inch dime was my limit..I had to create new target's at deeper depth's and harder unmasking scenario's too..These test are way above the NORM,

target's are
10" dime
11" dime
12.25" dime
13" nickle

Nickle under very bad mineralized red caly hand fired brick..from pre civil war days...Its a tough brick....not alot of machine's punch it.

Heres a recovery speed test for a dime and a nickle on my back deck...the coins are stuck in cracks on edge

Heres My Vista Gold digging a really deep target about the size of a nickle...very deep...

The Vista Gold digging a piece of 19th century Jewelry out of iron...very thin gold piece...

Heres the Vista gold on a House site hunt

Out of all the machines I find the Vista gold at this point in MY DIRT to be the deepest on relics...

The Vista GOLD when ran in fast is as close to the behavior of a XP GMP I have used.....

Except the Vista GOLD has a boost mode that makes it deeper in Fast mode and in slow mode..

The Vista also has a SLOW mode...and when you couple the SLOW mode with the BOOST mode it becoems one of the deepest seeking detector's in bad dirt I have ran to date...

It a little more tricky to run in Slow mode becasue the audio gate stays open longer and the ground noise will seep in more...but once learned the GOLD is very DEEP..

In iron on fast with the excellent Elliptical coil's it works great on sites that have become dead...A true site Un-Locker...A true site rejuvenator...
The 25kHz GOLD for me is in the same league as the XP GMP in unmasking...for depth it's in it's own league for low conductor's on target's at depth especially..

The whole line of machines are desinged for unmasking in iron with their iron only reject...At they do it quite well...

Thanks Keith for the in depth review. I recently trade for a Vista Gold. Can't wait to hunt some of my relic sites.

Keith thanks for all the time you took to do these detailed videos. Other tube vidoes I have enjoyed about the Vistas, are authored by DetectorComparisons.....check out the Depth and Iron Seperation topics. Thanks

Keith is a straight shooter.
