    Iron grunts

    I relic hunt in one tone,disc @5,dig everything above 10vdi.My understanding is that when you disc above 6vdi(or switch to another mode)the detector automatically raises the disc to 15.Good targets mixed in with iron or in “hot” dirt give skewed vdi readings even shallow ones.

    Tale of two .69’s

    These were found within 10 feet of each other...But different molds...

    Iron Snake S Hook

    I dug this at one of my favorite skirmish sites.It is iron and appears to have a snake head on one end.I usually ignore iron signals but due to the proximity I knew that I needed to check this one out..

    Civil War or Later...?

    Sorry for waiting so long to follow up on this relic.This appears to be two pieces with the eagle attached to a thin disc.,which leads me to believe it was pinned or sewn on a uniform.I haven’t found any similar eagles on Confederate artifacts..Size is about the same as a quarter.

    NEL tornado coil-F75LTD

    I use a Tornado on my F75 and love it in our Tennessee red dirt.I mostly hunt one Tone,signal mid 80’s,discrimination @ 1-5,ground balance usually low 50’s.Good targets very seldom rise above 30vdi so everything above a vdi of 10 gets investigated.

    Civil War or Later...?

    Found at a site where Civil War relics have been located but can’t find a reference.Appears to be two piece.

    Tesoro Relic Coils

    Most of my detecting is in open fields where everything non-ferrous gets dug.Targets that TID at 60-65 out of the ground struggle to achieve a 10-20 TID at 6” in our dirt.I hunt either all metal or one tone discriminate with disc set at 5 or below with my F75 and dig anything that tries to rise...

    Tesoro Relic Coils

    I’m aware that the ground balance only works in the all metal mode and that the discrimination mode uses a fixed/preset ground balance.Could different coils be manually ground balanced and used in all metal?I’m not sure but I think the tid works in both modes.As always,I appreciate and respect...

    Tesoro Relic Coils

    I just picked up a Tesoro Cortes in mint condition but the previous owner was strictly a coinshooter.The only coil with the detector was a Tesoro 7” concentric.My preferred hunting is for civil war relics.Any recommendation for a larger coil?I have a NEL Tornado on my F75 that works very...

    5900 di pro sl/6000 di pro sl

    The difference is the manual vs auto ground balance.I believe the 6000 was built first and they later found that there was a demand for the manual more precise ground balance, thus the 5900 to avoid confusing the two models.

    F75ltd; I've been doing this wrong!

    I'm a relic hunter,mostly in open fields.Like most,I started out in disc mode and later switched to all metal motion.Usually I would listen for the higher zip-zip tones,but a few days ago I noticed the vdi numbers jumping on the softer tones.After digging a few of these lower tones and finding...

    F75LTD Volume Control Location

    Has anyone addressed the problem of "bumping" the volume control on the F75 ? I've tried the orings under the knob trick to make it harder to turn but still occasionally find that I've turned the volume down without realizing it.TIA David

    My MXT E series lost its VDI

    I put my old MXT E series away when I upgraded to the MXT All Pro.I broke it out yesterday for the first time this year and while it still worked my vdi readings were reading way too low.Nickels read as foil,quarters as nickels and nothing read any higher.The signals are still there in...

    Rubber Bullets

    I snuck up on a picket post a few weeks ago and dug these .50 cal Smith carbine drops.These were originally encased in rubber and later when they ran out of rubber,they switched to paper casings.Pretty interesting projectile.

    Backyard Finds

    After watching surveyors clear a small section of a grownup fencerow,I couldn't resist giving the cleared area a few sweeps.It went-beer can-beer can-SHAZAM!My third plate ,ever.

    No depth with Etrac

    OK, so out of curiosity, I punched a hole a no dropped a clad quarter about four inches on edge.Running in ttf my Etrac wouldn't hit on it,even in pinpoint.I have noticed that I have yet to dig any deeper coins(or bullets).Running through all of the settings changes nothing.I thought,maybe it's...

    ETRAC-Red Dirt-Coil for the best depth

    In most parts of the country a larger coil equates more depth.Here in the red dirt south,a larger coil just sees more mineralization and either lowers the sensitivity in auto mode or falses in manual mode.On the other hand,a smaller coil will see a smaller sampling(meaning less reflected...

    XL-PRO best coin hunting mode

    I've used an XL-PRO for several years and have recently gone over some of my sites with Minelab detectors(Sovereign & Etrac).I dug coins/relics at most sites which I had obviously missed with the Pro.I hunt in geb disc and I am curious if the faster sweep speed versus the slower Minelab sweep...
