    First Hunt With Impact

    Took the Impact to my favorite park and tried different modes and frequencies. This park seems to give up one or two decent coins for every four hours of hunting and today was no different. I dug loads of junk trying to figure the detector out. The dominant signal seemed to be 96-98 which all turned out to be deep, rusty iron. I had layed a clad nickel on the ground at the beginning of the morning and it read a solid 30.

    There just are not too many coin signals left in this park and the ones that are left, seem to be in the nickel range(28-35). I was looking for the 28-30 signals and had passed on many of the mid thirties signals. I finally got to an area where I had found several Buffalo nickels and got a tight, repeatable 34 signal. Because I was bored and had not found many coins, I dug it. From 4 inches I saw a nickel sized coin. I was expecting a Buffalo, but was please to see a "V" on the back. 1906 in excellent condition. I probably passed over several older nickels looking for lower numbers, but "live and learn".

    I was hoping that the Impact would be an Anfibio with a trigger, but I don't think the Impact is an Anfibio clone. For a heavy detector, the Impact is extremely well balanced. I think it will be a deep detector. You have to pay close attention to the numbers when you change frequencies and modes. They will and change by four or five digits. I have not been real thorough reading the manual to see if there is an "ID normalization" function to keep things uniform. After four hours, the Impact seems like it might be a keeper.

    ID normalization works great on the Impact. I'll never get rid of mine.
    Good luck from a fellow NE Ohioan.
