    To detect in all-metal mode? What are the benefits?

    Hi Guys,

    I wrote an article for the "Temerity" magazine for May 2012 on detecting in all-metal mode. Check out my article or download the PDF at the following link: Website Documents - Peter Gill's Virtual Home

    You get a lot more action!

    I haven't read the article but I can tell you from experience that while you may dig more trash targets in all metal mode you will also dig more treasure. All metal mode will also increase your depth sensitivity.

    I have embarrassed more than one high dollar detector user with my $100 Bounty Hunter while on a hunt

    It really all depends on the location your are working, and the maount of trash as well as the mineral content of the soil. I always use the leat amount od discrimination that I can for the situation. In most ballparks, schools and playgrounds, you will need to use enough discrimination to rid yourself of the pesky pulltabs. In some less used areas, where there is less trash you can drop the discrimination and get better depth. If you want to work those trashy grounds and find what others have missed, run no discrimination and when you detect a target, flip to discrimination to determine the content of the metal. Although not 100% accurate, Id detectors will generally give you a good indication of your find. Most vlf detectors don't like black sand beaches or high mineral content soils so you will have to run excessive discrimination to hunt these. Good Luck. rockhound

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    Been hunting like this since 2008, All Metal, Remote Disc Button..Minelab Excalibur. at the beach you get to know the target lane by locating all targets. Hotter detecting field of the coil....Excellent for cherry picken...cover more area on a fresh drop beach.

    I enjoyed your article Peter! All Metal hunting is a way of life as a gold nugget hunter. With every machine that offers an All metal mode, you will get added depth over Discrimination modes, and for me that is the deciding factor.

    I find that with the Teknetics Delta 4000 my depth is controlled by the sensitivity setting only. Discrimination mode only selects on what numbers the detector will emit a tone on...In all metal mode the numbers are the same as is the sensitivity, only the audio now is a variable tone.

    I usually always hunt under all metal mode, its a great motivation to dig everything that beeps. and sometimes, it's just worth it.

    I find myself using all metal more often of late. I find more targets faster. My Teknetics Omega 8000 gives
    the target ID in all-metal, and the depth in pinpoint mode, and with increased depth over disc.

    Metal Detecting
    Great article. Being new to detecting I have been hunting a property that has been occupied since the 1700s and there is just a ton of stuff in the ground.. mainly farm relics so I just dig everything since my readings are all over the place with my AT Pro. I am sure this is an absolute noob question but is All Metal Mode simply just having all iron descrim off?
