Question on park 1 and park 2

What park 1 or 2 is better for silver on the equinox 600?
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.

Good info. I just picked up a used 600 and will check that out. Now I would like the smaller coil.

If you are talking about the minelab small coil and you are wanting it for better separation you should checkout Calabashdiggers video.
I bought one and tested it and then sold it.
I know its hard to believe but it didn't separate any better and of course wasn't as deep as the stock coil.
I just ordered the new coiltek 10x5.

Most of your replies to your original question are from people that run the Equinox 800, and you run to the Equinox 600, like me. Even though they are very similar they are not exactly the same.
So here's my two cents when it comes to finding silver, which is what you are original question was. If you're hunting in the Backwoods, I would definitely use Park-1. But if your hunting old or new city parks, or areas of that nature..... I would definitely use Park-2.

I like park 2 others like Ted have suggested field 2, I'll try to remember that and try it next time.

Got my six inch and have used it twice and having fun. Haven’t tried the 11inch but will depending on the location.
