    Sorry everyone! A lot going on the past couple of weeks. Wife started Radiation therapy after her operation for breast cancer, and my Granddaughter completed her Air Force Basic Training, and is now an Airman! We have hunted together twice now and have basically broken even. Three-silvers each and a ring for me, a broach for him. We are going to try again this weekend, and I'll see if we can get some video. Hang in there, we are just getting started!

    If the kid has any idea what he's doing, you will lose. Me and a buddy did an experiment just like you are doing. We both have decades of experience and he used the ACE250 and I used my E-Trac. It wasn't even close, he couldn't detect to the depth I was.

    Um, that's not the same experiment, the idea is to see whether experience trumps equipment. The same experiment would have been to put a newbie on the Etrac. Of course, if detectirist experience is the same, the "better" detector should win. That's pretty obvious.

    Good headphones can make a difference...

    Ace 250 and a good set of headphones. Sometimes the really faint signals are clarified by doing a little digging. The soil can mask the inductance properties of the target. This is a thing I noticed about the Ace 250. I use the Gray Ghost headphones. Colorado soil can be difficult, especially in the Arkansas River valley with all the black sand masking targets.

    You must have missed post 76 when you did your detailed read through of the thread so I quoted it for you. Waiting for the next update, but as you can see, Terry kinda has real life going on at the moment. Thanks for your concern and understanding.
