    Cibola vs. Bounty Hunter

    Ok, so here is my situation:
    I have had a Bounty Hunter Tracker 4 through the summer and have been quite successful. I am lucky, as I discovered a virgin site, I believe. Nothing too, too old, but a rec area in some woods where I know people have been visiting at least since the 1940's. A coin shooter's dream. Coins coming out of the ground! I have found about 700 coins in total and become quite proficient with the Tk4.
    Then I realized I wasn't finding any silver.
    I had found only about 4 wheat pennies. I couldn't understand why no coins were prior to 1965 at all. I decided that the Bounty Hunter must only be detecting a couple inches down. It's very sandy soil, and easy digging.
    So I do tons of research and decide on the Cibola, a hot, deep seeking detector.
    Now, I haven't gone to my regular stomping grounds yet, but have used the Cibola around my yard which I had previously cleaned out with the tracker 4.
    Honestly, I haven't found anything else in my yard with the cibola and I've started to wonder if its really any better than the bounty hunter. Maybe its just the new detector learning curve.
    Any thoughts?

    Yep, I have a thought. Check back in with us in a month, and THEN give us your assesment. Big Gold!

    And hopefully big silver coins, too. I realize its not a completely fair review, but my first impression was that it wasn't finding anything new in my yard, which surprised me.

    Have you set up a test bed with some known targets at a known depth?
    I'm pretty new to this as well but I was way off with how I was using my Outlaw's discrimination until I did this.

    Yes I could do that I guess...
    Been off to my stompin grounds and it has done better in depth. Found a wheat near an old wheat site, some zincs pretty deep, etc.
    One noticeable change is that my garret pro pointer doesn't always find the spot now because the target is too deep!
    One thing for sure is that whether it be my tk4 or my cibola, they both are light years ahead of my white's coinmaster from the 70's.
