    Sometimes I get to old campsites that have lots of trash including melted beer cans that have turned into molten blobs of aluminum.
    Keep at it and listen for those sweet tones. Maybe slow down the swing on the coil

With the Equinox I could if I switched to a higher freq because the VDI would jump and I could tell easily on the Whites V3i with the polar plot. (*The V3i is a heavy machine though)

    The best machine I am now using is the XP Deus (ORX) and it is very good with bottle caps. As you wiggle the coil back you will hear a iron grunt 90% of the time. (vertical, Bent, or rusty caps can still fool you)
    I may be crazy but I actually think I can hear the hole in the pull tabs it is that good.
    Having said that I usually dig em anyway (If you carry a screwdriver and a pinpointer you will save a ton of time) I dug a few dollars in clad and cleaned out about a 75ft section this weekend.

    Bingo! The wiggle trick on the XP machines works wonders!

    Those sites are tricky. You can somewhat hear the "out of roundness" on the XP machines, but melted aluminum can fool even the most experienced dectorists.
