    Experienced Detectorist Looking For Help

    I wouldn't say I am really experienced, but I have been out a few times. I know how to do it pretty well. Not saying that it is hard in All Metal mode, but nonetheless. I just got a decent detector, The Teknetics Delta 4000. I really want to take this thing out and have a couple of spots that I can't wait to use it at. Any tips for using it right? I know there are two modes, A1 and A2. There are people saying that one mode goes deeper than others and others are saying that the other one goes deeper. My ground doesn't have a lot of minerals in it and I just want to be able to reach quarters at 9-10". I am a pretty active member over at Friendly Detecting Forum. Thanks guys.

    Practice, practice practice but first read the manual then practice.
    And most of all Happy Hunting,
    Then practice.

    I have Delta 4000, very seldom have I had to leave the preset settings at turn on as it has very good depth in the Texas soil where I live. If you do a google search Delta 4000 A1 a wealth of information will pop up. It seems that the A1 will get the deeper results

    I am bad at reading manuals, but I know for this I am definitely going to. I don't mind digging up every single beep, like others do. Give me a detector that goes deep and I will dig up everything it gives me. That's how you know you won't miss anything.
