A way to check big iron

This is the way I was showed to check if your target is big iron with explorer xs and I'm sure with others.You get a good tone , move coil away from target and turn on pinpoint and move it over target again if your target has moved from the spot you thought it was it is big iron the good sound was the halo effect .This is I'm sure old hat to old hunters but new hunters may find it useful.


Good tip - I swing at the target from several directions and if it seems to shift location I pass on it. I'll try your method.

Your right if that's what your looking for ,I've gotten spoiled by tone Id , that's why I have a vaquero if it sounds good I dig . With the explore I do dig Big Iron when it really sounds good l know it bigger than a nail.
