RonStar and I are discovering that in 4kz, the Legend is an aluminum magnet.

With my ctx/etrac I'm pretty good weeding those out-- Elmy has been extremely helpful in this regard. But with the legend just because something is scratchy doesn't mean it is slaw. To me, almost every signal on that machine, of an older coin, sounds iffy compared to the aforementioned machines.

Not complaining: happy to have a machine for high emi areas.

Just my own opinion, but I think the 1.07 was better, the iron tone improvement does not impress me, as I cannot tell the difference. Is there a way you could send me the 1.07, I would rather go back and Nokta does not have it on the site.
I need to run my Iron bin volume at 4 or 5 to hear it as well as I want to. The adjustable Iron Filter is a big help in unmasking tricky good targets.

Jeff is correct. Can slaw being detected but clearer and deeper than the F75 could. That being said most of that was in the “EMI-HZ” and again we are walking out with silver and older pennies so kind of a win-loss-win set up.
Am I going to use 4khz exclusively? No. But it is an astonishing tool in the areas that have produced previously.

It would be nice if there was better VDI identification between aluminum and pennies tho……

My account is 13 years old and i'm not well known. Do they have a lurker award?
I would have thought a well known member went by a combination of length of time and posts.
I was originally a member over 15 years ago until i got out of the hobby then forgot even my username so had to reregister under a new one when i just started again.
I was actually thinking about changing my username as i never really gave it much thought when i picked one. So do things start all over again if i change it

Ok so I changed my name and avatar soon to follow probably.
The current avatar was to appease Pulltaboo since he wasn’t happy with my love letters 😁

Ronstar, Have you tried the new M3 yet? It might run stable in your EMI HZ & give better TID since it is low weighted multi.

JCR,
No. Basically anything not 4khz pops and chatters, I’ve tried 10 when 4 is running quiet and its not as bad as multi but still noisy.
I need to go back and find the post about the anti EMI balls or beads and see if that works but it seems when that interference is both above and below ground its a losing battle. But, I will none the less give it a whirl!

If you’re referring to any EMI type responses I disagree. 07 and 09, at least here, appear to be equal in that regard. 09 allows you to fine tune other responses and provides IF and AG attributes plus the saturated ground M3 mode.
What is interesting with this machine is how it responds to minute adjustments and this is most likely why the custom settings exist.

The update, for me, was a breeze-- 7 minutes.

Haven't had time to do any testing, but I think calabash wasn't impressed by M2/M3. YMMV, of course.

The Nox was just as chatty at 4khz, where RS and I hunt.

Ferrite beads only help if your coil cable's shielding is broken or very low quality to begin with. So in the real world it's akin to hanging a CD off your rear view mirror to make your car invisible to police radars.

Of all multis, M2 works best on small gold.

the 1.07 was quieter
Well the good finds here are very few just the nature of the beast unfortunately.
the good things though that very little to no mineralization so everything runs very quite and everything is so sandy and loose its easy to dig.
If course cant have the best if both worlds, quite, easy to dig ground and loaded with good stuff. Not sure if such a place exists
