    New set up on the 800 rewards me from a pounded out Fort.

    Saw a guy who recommended using speed 8 with the 6” on trashy, both iron square nails and modern trash areas. Well that sounded like my spot, the old Rev Fort and now a forgotten park (land). So I’ve gone the last 5 times with nothing to show for it and it’s a hour away, but I couldn’t sleep and knew I’d be making that trip. I just woke up from yesterday at noon. Lol

    I alway thought the good stuff if any was deep with the iron all being masked by the modern trash on top. Try speed 8 that half dime was only 3” deep!

    Ive got to play around with my 6" coil more around some cellars.

    could you describe exactly your swing technique and what youre listening for? are you hearing clear high tones?

    Nice job on the keepers. You might have a lipstick case instead of a match holder. Sounds like a great place!

    I put it on speed 8 swung at a regular speed. I had my high tones high and volume high from 17 up. If I wait for a “clear” high tone I’d probably never dig. I dig a lot of plugs but not as many as I use too! Lol

    It looks small but then again you could probably only hold 4 matches in there at the most. So not sure what it may be.

    Truth, great hunt, definitely some nice finds. Question, what were the rest of settings that you used on the 800 (update: just saw the settings in your video, thanks). Good luck with your hunts. Walt

    See I always thought the good stuff was deep that other couldn’t get to and mixed in among the iron nails while the modern trash was 1-3” on top. So this setting showed me fast recovery got a half dime between trash that the bigger coil missed and the 6” hit a 7” 3 ringer while still on 8 recovery so I’m excited.
