    Question Do u set sensitivity low when at the park...

    Hi all Iím a newbie here ! Iíve only been detecting a few months mostly beaches and wanting to move into parks etc , there are plenty of articles, utube videos, photos etc , From what I gather most targets are no deeper than 3-4Ē .
    My question is do u set sensitivity low when at the park so as not to go too deep so as out of reach of your popper and then you need to use the plug method instead.

    Good question Rattail, and welcome here. To answer your question, "perhaps yes, and no." Meaning it's a judgement call, if after say a large event, and your not looking for anything older, just hopes for perhaps rings, or bracelets, recent change?, sure you can lower it, and not be bothered as much by older deeper pull tabs etc. But if looking for older coins and things, then detect as usual, whatever sensitivity will allow, and if ground is not like cement in the summer.

    Welcome to Tnet. Also in parks I never carry a shovel. It gives the impression of deeper digging. Park managers and attendants Don't care for that. Although there are deeper targets there just learn where you are and what tools you can use without drawing to much attention. Good luck.

    Sure, if all you want is surface to 4" deep, knock the sensitivity down. If you want to just find coins, bump the discrimination up to just under your lowest conductive coin. if you want gold, you'll need to dig everything in the non-ferrous range.
