E-Trac finds gold...again...
I have no idea who ever said, and it always goes around... 'the ETrac can not find gold'.
Maybe someone who never tried the ETrac?
Maybe someone who just hates the success people have had with the ETrac?
Maybe someone saw it posted somewhere and just repeating it?
...I have no idea, but some gold last year, and first gold for this year.
PLACE: local park. baseball field. third base line. people sit and watch the game under trees.
WITH: my GF (DiggerBee) using my AT Pro (to her it's 'her AT Pro') w/ 8.5x11 coil
DETECTOR: ETrac with stock Pro coil.
SETTINGS: stock coin program, auto sens +2, rec deep OFF, rec fast OFF, trash LOW, multi tones
FIND: '10kt' stamped gold girl's ring with light blue gem stone
We were hunting under trees that people sit under watching the baseball game at a local community baseball park. I keep the 'Display Timeout turned OFF, so that the last target hit stays on the screen until the next target is hit. As you can see in the picture, this is what I hit the the ring on on the ETrac screen. Depth was pretty much 'spot on'! Gold ring was about 3" down. We found a lot of clad coins and the ring HIT just as hard as a coin does. It hit solid both ways, never nulled, and held the 10-5 reading the whole time. I looked at my 'ETrac Target Card' and knew I had to dig it. I had a feeling it was a gold ring.
What's funny is that after I found it, I put it back in the hole and put the plug over it and my GF, DiggerBee, went over it with the AT Pro (standaard coin mode, sens set 2 bars from max) and it hopped around 40s-50s and she actually said 'she would not have dug it'. I probably would not have either. OUCH! Nice thing to be aware of as I use the AT Pro as my back-up when the weather looks like rain.
First gold of the year!
clad pennies: $5.29
clad nickles: $3.55
clad dimes: $27.90
clad quarters: $52.25

latest interesting find : 1930's Kissproof USA mini lipstick

Nice ring, man! I'm surprised to see it come in at 10-05. But, I am a new user. This really opens the eyes. Thank you very much for the Target Card.

Nice finds.Great work on self training. You will learn and retain more of what you learned, than if someone showed you. Keep asking questions, put the knowledge to use in the field and FIND STUFF!!! Great job on the target card too. I'm gonna copy it. GL

Congrats on the Gold ! The E-trak will find it, Just listen for the low tones.
Just a Suggestion, open up (remove the black line ) the top right corner of your program, that is where the Big silver comes in at.
I'll just follow you with My E-trac, Sov GT,or GoldBug Pro.
