Teknetics T2 settings.

Post by ianr1979 » Thu Jan 25, 2018 5:31 pm

Hi all, I have recently upgraded my machine from the ace 300i to the T2. I was wondering if anyone could advise me on the best settings to get me started until I get used to machine? I have had a couple of hours on pasture with a little success. Using the following settings 75-35-2+.

You'll get a lot of different answers on this one. When I had a T2 I found the best settings depth wise were Gary's River Bank Pasture Settings:-

Sensitivity 95
Discrimination 35
Tone 1

You can get Gary's full review here. ::g

For me rather than stick at the same settings, I find I have to vary them depending on the field.
Usually start at 80 sen and 10 disc and alter the sensitivity up or down depending on how sparky it is. Same with Disc if there is iron grunts everywhere turn it up or down if it is a quiet field, I do use 2+ tones most of the time though.
T2 classic, GP Pointer and a bucket full of optimism :D

I would run my T2 Red Hot
80 plus Disc 0 2 plus tones..... Plenty of Snap crackle and pop!!! It Wouldn't Suit every one, but I always knew I was running the T2 on the limits...Never failed me,, ::g

Just to add, don't take sensitivity recommendations as set in stone, you might end up with a machine so chattery as to be effectively useless due to the distraction of it constantly sounding off, set as high as your level of concentration will allow, I cannot ever remember setting the sensitivity of my former T2 over 72, and keep in mind you do not always get more depth, just louder audio on signals!

What machine are you now using matey ? And reason for changing from the t2 .

If you don’t mind that is ::g
I use a Macro Racer 2, XP GMP and an Equinox 600, I sold the T2 to a mate and almost instantly regretted it, so I ended up buying the Racer which has a lot of similarities.

I think DiggerDave`s spot on with this statement above .
The less discrim windows you open the more you can help restrict your depth power.
" Discrimination " , is exactly what it says it is ,and due to the fact that when in all metal mode,the T2 will give you a Discrim "Value" readout figure of your Target without actually discriminating the target has to be one of the most revolutionary discoveries in modern day metal detecting.
Actually hearing whats under your coil and evaluating what its telling you as you go along is a rewarding amount of info your detector can give you.
Of course inevitably ,most new to detecting will find it all irritating and some who`ve also been at detecting a while will find the so called "snap crackle & pop " annoying ,yet ! it really is informative. It can tell you when to reduce your sensitivity ,or up it as and when desired.
So its never a good thing to ignore what your detector can tell ,you regardless of the way it does it.
