    Those jumpy signals in that 5 to 7.... can be can foil, BUT do you want to take that chance. I will say one thing about the OLD program..... it may miss on edge coins. Recently hit a local beach pretty hard with the Nox and had it down to few signals worth digging. So i grabbed the Xcal ..... i got 2 pennies..... nothing else, except quarters...... $3.50 worth of um. scattered out about chest deep.... and a couple of scoops down each.... very black coins. Now im not a real coin digger..... but the quarter is in that silver ring range too. I concentrate on gold..... but for those who like to have a good coin count at the end of the year to pay for equipment you might want to think about this. So ..... was i out farther (i dont think so), did some sand move just enough....... or were these coins at an angle that the Nox didnt like?

    IMHO: You have dig it all to really know whats under the coil! I hunt relics and dig every signal; when water hunting...every signal. On groomed lawns and sensitive places (I would like to dig everything) you have to use discretion.
