Yesterday went out with the ATP trying out new setting using Iron Audio and pulled up clad along with a 1954 Dime!!!! Woohoo!
Using the iron audio helped me distinguish more slaw...or did it? 😳
I'm used to digging everything but the beer tops were getting annoying!
Set it in Pro Coin 35 discrim + IA. Still learning and having a blast!

Not a bad day. I always hunt in the Pro coin and Jewelry with iron set at 35. To each his own. Cannot stand the noise in Pro zero.

The chatter on Pro Coin with 35 Disc is trying for sure...I am trying to discriminate bottle caps out...they are everywhere! Iron audio helps with the change in tone as well as the numeric change. Still learning here trying to find the best setting related to the hunt. On the ATP I don't have a "Jewelry" setting, just Zero, Coin and Custom. Haven't found any jewelry yet....hmmmm.

Mus, you should get a bouncing # but more important and the easiest for me is they will have a sligh ceackle in the audio.the ones bent in half are real tuff. they hit like silver or Ile dollars.

Thanks everyone! The iron audio feature helped a lot. I think my ears get fatigued before my arm does. Nickels are tough for me, they ring at 52 the same as a pull tab or 1 above it.

Lol. Man if it was that easy..... ;)

So if I am understanding correctly, in order to find "Gold" I'm going to have to dig a lot of pull tabs! How does a Gold coin ring in? Man oh man!!! I just love this hobby!!!

Yeah lots of tabs, nickels, can slaw, foil, etc. Gold rings will vary depending on caret, size, weight, depth, angle also. My wedding bands have ID'd slightly higher than a nickel. Large gold like class rings can be much higher, while toe rings and thin diamond rings much lower. There is no formula per say so there is no reason to try to figure it out. You have to dig the whole range and get lucky a little too. There are so many different types of tabs that they can come in all over the place. Then there's the bent ones and the ones cut in half.... If it was easy.... Well you know the rest. Good luck out there!

Not a bad day. I always hunt in the Pro coin and Jewelry with iron set at 35. To each his own. Cannot stand the noise in Pro zero.

Just before freeze up I was running, balanced, Pro Zero and notched out 65 and under, in an old school yard. I was still able to pull out nice older silvers and deep old quiet signal pennies. It is a peaceful way for me to use the machine in a hi trash location. I love those softer repeatable signals.
