    TRX so far....

    Had it out for the first time today. Hogeeeeee is it sensitive! I am used to the carrot clone which gets 1 1/4 inches on a dime. They oughtta call the TRX the T-Rex. I have to work on getting used to it and probably set the sensitivity down a couple clicks. One thing 4 sure...I can pinpoint an object in the ground within a hairsbreadth. THAT I like...just have to figure out all the boo-beeps after getting setup mode. I think a couple to three inches is plenty deep so I will try to set it up like that by Detuning it. Did I say sensitive? Wow!

    Update: found the TRX extended user manual on line. I have set the T-REX to send #2, and beep only. Holding the unit OFF THE GROUND after ground balancing, and above the suspected target location, I do a slow criss-cross until I start getting click/beeps, then find where they are most common/fastest. Then I simply drop right to ground level and lightly do a small circular swirl until the beeps are most frequent. I keep in mind the depth the Patriot readout was. Most times all I had to do was pop the coin out with my hand DIGGER. Deeper targets became a snap. Right in the center of the plug and I purposely cut the plugs right at readout depth. In totlots, this thing is unbelievable...General point with detector and sweep the rough location with fingers in the wood chips. GB the REX, and then sweep lightly until it screams. I felt like a guy called Mudpuppy who specializes in stoop and stab. Yesterday I found 10 dollars in clad and a defunct(but silver) pocketwatch. Oh....in about 3 1/2 hours. I felt like a pro! All that aside, it DOES take some getting used to the sensitivity, so...of COURSE I am gonna go practice some more! Hope this helps those who are looking at pointers. (I still like my clone and there were times the LOW sensitivity was helpful, but I also learned how to ratchet down the send on the REX....so now the wife might inherit the clone and I can borrow it from her as a backup. Many thanx to Quality Metal Detectors for a great deal too!

    I really like the TRX, but I have just one problem. I wish it was full submersible. It will shake off rain and a little dunking but nothing more.

    I hear ya. I have been extra careful. I don't hunt local water just land. Still, I am thinking of using Goodell to anchor a membrane over the speaker. It's an expensive little sucker but man do it grab them targets.

    The TRX is a very good pin pointer.
