    could my 13" ultimate coil be bad?

    just did that and your right on about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 shorter with the stock coil. soooo, coil is good, it has to be my soil, it is red dirt and red mineralization could be playing a part in this... the extra few inches of the Ultimate coil in this highly mineralized soil is killing...

    E-Trac Xchange Mode Patterns?

    I usually run a mostly open screen (28FE to 35FE discriminated out), I also have the Andy S. coin program, Bill S. trashy park, Elmy's 110. I did write a cherry picking program that has a whole lot of discrimination . I don't think you need too many programs. I use any one of these on occasion...

    certain sites when I hunt for deep stuff I dig every repeatable signal 6" or deeper and I use the 13" coil and this screen...which is open to the 27 line and discriminated from 28 to 35, I haven't found a need to open it up any farther at this point. I'm hitting another old property tomorrow...

    Now that is how you do it! I am constantly changing or playing with settings and screens... I have my go to settings when I hunt certain places...but I get bored. I try different stuff and go back over areas I already hit hard. Funny how the E-trac will always come through for you. Congrats...

    Prices out of sight
