    The thing about it is: you're going to be digging a ton of targets to try and give yourself the advantage. He's probably going to be detecting as usual. I wouldn't be surprised if you came out ahead in jewelry from digging all the pulltab signals.

    Well Terry you recommended the Tesoro Compadre for my granddaughter and she has done very well with it but Loco's analysis of the F22 is spot on IMHO.

    I suppose it will depend on the sites you hunt but I would lean towards a compadre or coinmaster with a small 5.3 coil. You won't have the depth but you might be able to hold your own on the separation. I hunted my first year with the F22 and its a great tot lot machine you can turn the sens down and get pinpointer close to playground poles. The F22 has decent entry-level vdi to 4-6" inches but it down averages targets and but I sure found a lot with that machine.

    I actually just gave my F22 away to a young kid who couldn't afford a metal detector and I'm looking forward to seeing his finds. Had I not I would have volunteered its service for this challenge.

    (The DD coil might help some but the thought of going up against a Deus seems like suicide)

    If the Compadre can unmask as good as the other Tesoro's and the Coinmaster should be similiar to my new favorite machine the MX5 then I would like my chances at the parks and maybe home sites. I would love to see a live video feed of this showdown though!

    So when is this great matchup going to take place? FTR, my bet is on you Terry. That pic of you almost looked like myself back in the day and it seems I'm about a year older than you. Keep us appraised.

    I have to ask if you guys will only use the detectors or will you be able to use a pinpointer too? This can make a big difference.

    We start this Saturday, weather permitting. I'm going to use the Teknetics Eurotek Pro, which was sent to me by Keith at Fort Bedford Metal Detectors. Keith sponsors my Youtube Channel, and thinks I can beat this young up and comer (or at least hold my own), with the 11" Double D on the ET Pro. Yeah Swaveab, I'll let the kid use a pinpointer. He'll need all the help he can get!

    nice choice. I like how it has a volume setting were you can mute out iron signals

    You may have lost before you even get started from breaking the agreement on retail price. That detector you received retails for $300.

    Einstein said: I know very well that many scientists consider dowsing as a type of ancient superstition. According to my conviction this is, however, unjustified. The dowsing rod is a simple instrument which shows the reaction of the human nervous system to certain factors which are unknown to us at this time.”

    If dowsing does not work, the Spanish would not have used it as much as they did.

    Practice makes perfect, even in dowsing.

    Hope you mix up the hunts some. Maybe a relic hunt somewhere other than parks. Parks are fine too. Maybe a wet area. They all need different approaches.

    Sheesh!! I wish my old BFO was still working, I'd join you just to show younger folks how well those old machines did. Just dig a bit more trash with them but gold chains rang out well on them. XP, Nox, CTX3030, Bounty Hunter, F2, I don't think it makes a difference if you are hunting the same site. The only exception may be on a silted in site or a heavily landscaped one where targets are unnaturally deep. One person will have better luck on any given day than all others on the same site no matter which machine they are using. All you gotta do is get your coil over a good target which is more luck than skill, I am sure you know the drill well and hopefully you'll come out on top or even.

    You got this Terry! That machine should be near the performance of the Delta 4000 which I bought for my nephew several years ago. Of course I had to test it out before giving it to him and I was very impressed with depth and performance. I feel with your experience you will easily come out on top. I am looking forward to seeing the results.

    Gunsil, do you remember the old Bounty Hunter Mini Red Baron? It was a simple little detector with a 6 inch coil. I had one as a teenager and it was a silver magnet! I would take it to old fair grounds absolutely loaded with steel bottle caps and pull tabs and just cherry pick all kinds of silver left behind by the high end Whites and Garrets guys were using back then. I didn't dig much trash either.
    Research and ye shall find!
