Sensitivity: As high as poss without chatter. (Important to use high sensitivity with the X Terra as depth capability can drop dramaticly below 25ish)
Volume: max (adjust with headphones)
Noise cancel: Auto
Threshold: To suit user
Tones: 2
Ground balance: Auto
Track: on
Search pattern: All metal
This is the set up i use on 99% of sites i visit and has served me very well indeed.
Dig all high tones, ignore solid low tones. On very noisy sites i may use pattern 1 with -8 & -6 blocked out and slow my sweep speed right down.
my favourite coil is the 10.5 round DD med freq 7.5, Its a brilliant coil that offers the best depth, stability and is sensitive to the smallest hammered coins. It seems much more decisive on signals than the high frequency coils.
Happy Hunting.  Grin

My hammered coin rate went up with John's program, very simple and very effective!

John and I found 2 seperate cut halfs within meters of each other with no problems

On the trashy sites, i pop my 70 into pattern 1 and pump the threshold up to 10, iron will give you a blank in the threshold background hum. Watching John in the field is a lesson worth learning, very clinical and always gets results
