    I Popped 2 Aleve And Went To A Hard Hit Site

    I haven't been doing too much detecting lately because I'm having a little problem with one of my knees. It's not really bad, just annoying at times. I decided to hit the site where a few years back I found a Rosie, a Mercury Dime, A Barber Dime, and A Seated Dime during one hunt and all were within 20 feet of one another. I've hit that site several times since then with several different detectors, but not with the CTX and Deus.

    The very first target that I dug was a Rosie with the CTX. About halfway through the hunt, I switched over to the Deus. With both detectors, I managed to find 17 wheat pennies and 5 silver coins before calling it a day. The area that I'm detecting is around 40 yds x 40 yds in size. This site should be a good test for my NOX 600 that's arriving in the mail on Thursday. I can't wait to see how it does.

    There is a lot to be said about the CTX once you spend 10 years learning how to use it! AT pro is my go to unless I am in areas where the AU and silver lurk. With that said I pounded a 10 x 20 foot area where kids hang out after school. 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

    Pretty much everyone knows I’m a hardcore CTX user and fanboy,but I agree TOTALLY with owning at least a couple machines,and one being multi freq while the other is single seems to work for a lot of people. NO single machine will harvest everything,and that’s not something I easily concede. If my 14k 6 gram wedding band is on edge, my CTX WILL NOT SEE IT. My IDXPro will,same test,similar sized coils. 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!

    Tabman...2 things have saved my knees that have had a rough life,being attached to a 25 year auto mechanic and all...Mueller knee braces(the 60$ ones with metal hinges) and good,padded full sized knee pads. 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, it’s 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 30. Test it out and see what happens...

    Congrats Tabman and I see a great opportunity for you! Aleve hires you to do a TV advertisement showing you taking two Aleve and heading out with your CTX and finding all that silver! They will pay you to detect, WIN-WIN!
