Picked up a Nox 800

I traded my Simplex for an Equinox 800. I think it will compliment my Etrac very nicely. How do you guys set your 800s up for getting good depth and also good recovery speed? Thanks
Coinboy, did you find that coin? Its really nice. I dug one this past summer but mine was cut perfectly in half. 1731

Recovery speed of 5 is a good place to start then go down for more depth or up for better separation.
I just posted this about the equinox today.
Here's what I have found by testing several times.
1.In my opinion park 2 is a deeper mode.
2. Park 1 will give a more reliable VDI on deeper coins. ( coins 10 inches or so )
3. On the deeper coins Park 2 will report a lower VDI. But will give a stronger tone response.
So for me I use Park 1 most of the time.
On the rare occasion when I get to go on a civil war site in the woods I will switch to Park 2 to get a stronger tone on the deeper targets.
In Park 1 I can ignore some of the lower VDIs ( 1 to 8 ) when field hunting old house sites thats my be littered with can slaw from farm workers. (You will still dig plenty of can slaw at higher VDIs) If I was in Park 2 I couldn't ignore these numbers because I know that a deeper coins will bounce down into that range.

Thanks! Yes I did find that coin. Funny you say that I found a 1731 (i think) 2 Reale about a month ago! Thanks for the tips.
