    Garret GTI 2500 Gremlin

    All right, I have been metal detecting now for twenty years; usually with simple dial machines, which worked fairly well. However, about a year ago I decided to upgrade to a Garret GTI 2500 to help me save time from digging up junk. Ever since I bought the (new) machine, though I have been disappointed by regular wolf tones and phantom beeps. For example, I will be out in the field and get a good beep which the machine says is a dime or something but when I pass the coil over the location a second time the signal disappears only to come back on the ninth sweep. I have successfully bench tested the machine before I go into the field and have even sent it back to garret to but still find the same problem.

    My Garrett 250 does the same thing. My experience is its usually attributed to a small rusted target standing on end, like a tiny nail or staple.

    My detectors do the same, I think that most of them do. I think that the discrimination might be fooled on some passes and as soon as you try to find the target the discrimination does make it dissapear. I say this because I hunt in a mode called Stereo mixed mode, so that means that in my left year I have a all metal sound and on my right I have the discrimination sound. So once I have a good beep on my right ear and than dissapears, I can still hear the signal on my left ear, so it is there, there is metal under the dirt, but most likely junk.
