Pitch Hold or Normal ???

Pitch Hold or normal,, what do you use and why ???
I have always used normal,, but thinking about trying Pitch Hold...

Search for "pitch hold" in this forum. There's a few that swear by it. I've never been able to make myself use it long enough to learn it. I prefer normal. The only time I can see getting some benefit from it is in mostly clean soil with a few deepies at the fringe of detection.

my understanding is the sound you hear when hitting a target ..continues to hold that pitch ( sound) until you hit another target.

If I remember right the original Sovs all operated in pitch hold...

Pitch hold changes the pitch of you threshold.. So if you miss something you can sill hear the pitch change of the threshold until another target is hit.. I always use long...

I use Normal and always have , just cant understand why Pitch hold exists ! I like the straight forward tones of the Normal sounds.

That's correct Elton except all the Sovs use it, not just the original ones.

For those who haven't used it or don't even know what it does(as some posters have said) you should give it a try, you might like it.

Normal. Didn't try PH long enough to get used to it. Could figure out how to manage it in trashy areas.
I tend to agree with Phillip NM-
That PH probably works best on deepies in clean areas.
 
I only use pitch hold. Having a monotone threshold pitch drives me nuts after detecting for awhile. It does take some time to get used to it. Sometimes as I'm swinging, the threshold with suddenly change to a different tone. I've swung back over the area and found targets that were masked by iron.
 
I think it was well explained, pitch hold drove me crazy. But, it is another tool for us to use. ....which is nice.

opps sorry about that empty box post. lol.


Ill give you an example of when I use pitch hold. Im on a beach where ive hunted before and its pretty picked over. Ill set it to pitch hold and deep and try to find some fringe targets. I know it has worked once for sure on a half dollar way deep and maybe on edge or something but I found it after many had gone over it including myself.

most the time for me. normal.
