Thread: I Popped 2 Aleve And Went To A Hard Hit Site

    Nice finds Tabman. I'm sure you will like adding the 600 to your arsenal of detectors. My 800 has already sniffed out some very nice coins over the 6 months that I've had it.

Pulled out tons of clad no rings or silver with the CTX Hit it again with my son dual at pros and my son pulled a gold band where I know for a fact had waived the CTX over it multiple times. Probably proof that owning and using more than one brand of detector is a wise idea. Let your SO's know what you need for X MAS
    Yeah, I'm always amazed after hitting a site super hard with one detector and then switch detectors and start finding stuff that I missed with the first detector. The CTX and Deus make a good team.

I about shat myself the first time I saw that. Silver and copper coins? The CTX gobbles those things up like candy in about any site,proper coil installed...
    The statement was...have a couple of units. Again,great advice given!
    You got that right!

The Mueller braces are used when the knee(s) starts giving ANY issues,the knee pads are used religiously on every hunt. Without these two items I am out of business. Literally.
    A little bird told me one time that when in SUPER heavy trash with the CTX,to turn OFF Auto Tracking and to manually GB the machine on an adjacent piece of clean ground. The reasoning is that this will let the machine identify the trash and handle it as such instead of seeing it as the ground matrix and trying to track it out. Basically, itís apparently more effective for it to deal with the trash in the disc circuit than it is via the GB system. Also...Fast ON, Gain 10. Test it out and see what happens...
    Thanks for the info about the knee brace, I'm going to check that out for sure. I'm going to give setting the gain at 10 a try, I've been running mine at 21. I've got a lot to learn about the CTX. I'd like to know all the settings that you use at a trashy site littered with both can slaw and nails.

    Thanks! I always love seeing silver pop out of the ground, even if it's just a Rosie.

    Thanks! I'm surprised that many wheat pennies and silver coins were found at that site since I've hit it hard many times before. I bet that there are scores of more silver coins and gold rings hiding there that will never be found.

    Thanks! Aleve works a whole lot better for me than Advil does. I always get the genic brand at Walmart, It works just as good and cost a whole lot less.

    Thanks! Using a different detector sometimes works better at unmasking certain masked targets. Besides it's fun to try out different detectors at same sites, it keeps things interesting. I've been through a bunch.

    Good God! You cleaned it out pretty darn good! You won't find too much based on what I've seen of those high end detectors. I sure want to see the results though!

    I'm going to jump back on that site with the Nox as soon as it stops raining. It's loaded up with nails and trash and has been hit pretty hard, so it should be a good test for the Nox.
