    ok I found my first ring today after a long spell. 99.9% of the time i dig pull tabs, when the dfx says ring/pulltab I took my wedding band off and the vdi is 44, but today the ring i found was 22-23 range under the preprogrammed settings, coin and jewelry. What vdi are you guys seeing when you find rings?? 20s. 30s or 40s?? Pull tabs are usually vdi 33, 34 Range any advice? i really want more rings and no pull tabs, atleast not 99% of the time.

    Re: VDI FOR RINGS DFX 300??

    Now that's a tuff order. Rings, depending on size and makeup can cover the entire range you mentioned. If you decide to skip targets you think could be a pull tab then you will chance missing a ring. You might really be interested in the book, "DFX Gold Methods" by Clive Clynick, it is a great resource on the topic.

    You mentioned that you are using the Coin & Jewelry program. Have you tried increasing your Preamp to 3 or 4 and your AC Sensitivity to 70 - 75? These settings will give you a nice boost in depth. Another thing you could try is hunting in all-metal mode (toggle switch locked forward) until you get a target signal, then pull and release the trigger to go back to motion mode to check the VDI of the target. All-metal mode will normally give you more depth than motion mode.

    Re: VDI FOR RINGS DFX 300??

    Well there is sadly no way around that digging that I am aware about.
    The one gold that I found rang in around 10-20. (air test)
    But as some one said: "Location, location, location..."
    A beach is a great place to try your luck, especially if you can go into the shallow water.
    Easier to loose your ring, with all that stuff around; i.e. slippery skin, water and so on.

    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.
