So I have had my Cibola for about 6 months now. I've searched a few places that I know relics are at, but I haven't really found anything. I was wondering if maybe I'm not doing my settings right. I figured out how to get rid of square nail signal, but I'm afraid I'm losing bullets and all the other fun stuff. Anyone else use a Cibola for relic hunting, and if so what settings do you use?

The cibola is a relic machine, just set it just below 5 cent range and dig all solid hits. HH

The problem is that the Cibola has fixed ground balance which may or may not the correct ground balance setting for your soils. In hot ground the Cibola can lose depth fast. You may need a unit with
manual adjustable ground balance to regain depth. You might be better served trading up to the Vaquero. And adding a 10x12 searchcoil.
