    Georgia is only 300 miles away and far different soil than here. Getting someone from the same exact area that knows all about manual ground balancing to respond ended up being a challenge. But he knew exactly what i was talking about and knows how manual ground balance works on a detector. I...

    Neither both sides are so far out they can’t seem to understand anything in simple terms. Everything has to made more complicated than it really is

    Just simply trying to get the best detector for my soil conditions here within a budget. Cant exactly afford a xp or any really high end detectors great in all conditions. And the conditions are different all across the country. Nothing more nothing less

    Falling??! Just asking same question nobody able to actually answer I think people are getting confused thinking their auto gb detector is a manual gb detector If the detector does it for you its auto not manual True manual YOU actually have to turn, push knobs until its set Sorry guys not...

    Here has been my response just read through the thread n my original post I explained how I started metal detecting over 15 years ago and had detectors such as sovereign gt, cibola , vaquero, ace 250, xterra 505, silver umax, and for the beach on of my favorites excalliber II. As you see i...

    Here is a tesoro cortez one of many detectors with a here is a picture of a tesoro cortez picked it only because easy to see the manual gb knob You turn it either to more positive or negative until its just right and to determine that instructions are to pump coil listen for sound and turn knob...

    It sets itself if its a auto ground balancing machine a manual gb detector it has a knob or buttons that you have to adjust manually, hence manual ground balance, depending on weather it is positive or negative and that is determined by pumping the coil up and down and listening to the tone...

    Sorry but no. In my original post I explained how I started metal detecting over 15 years ago and had detectors such as sovereign gt, cibola , vaquero, ace 250, xterra 505, silver umax, and for the beach on of my favorites excalliber II. As you see i tend to favor minelabe and Tesoro but have...

    Yeah you can see why i get confused and maybe im not explaining it right but just going by what others are saying The way it reads like the detector has both fixed and manual gb maybe some do but I don’t know for sure but would think if its fixed you cant adjust it. I could be wrong
  15. Looking for ground balance tech info maybe better luck in this thread

    Ok here is an example of a response i got and makes sense not that yours doesn’t. No metal detector i had or seen has a zero setting or off button. I guess thats what makes it confusing different detectors are set up different and i never experienced one with a off button for gb or a zero...

    Yes i have no mineralization here unless i am on the beach in salt water compared to most who have at least some mineralization again i think this is part of the confusion but how do you turn off ground balance on a detector as he suggested? It either is automatic, “fixed” at a certain point...
  17. Looking for ground balance tech info maybe better luck in this thread

    Ok hold on and let me see If i can get some quotations This might be the disconnect the terminologies. I just repeat what i read and from what i read people say that soil that is not mineralized weather it be from iron, clay, salt water is considered to be “neutral” soil. If this is the correct...

    Your right that im probably overthinking and obsessing about it usually do with some things lol but still would like a good understanding as well. I probably am misunderstanding as to why im also trying to learn little more about it. I know some don’t understand the workings of things nor care...

    I have neutral soil just wondering how gb works in neutral soil weather its a fixed gb machine or auto. Does it just shut off the gb part of the machine or something not really understanding what is going on in the detector when it has nothing to balance
