My advice to anyone is avoid the preset coins mode - it rejects an enormous range of "good stuff" and has a dramatic effect on depth. I have switched off the bell tone and treasure talk, not sure that they add anything for me!
In both the motion and non-motion modes it is capable of phenomenal depths (OK its only an in air test but still impressive) I will post a YouTube clip of these soon. Towards the maximum depth the meter does seem to fail to lock onto an id segment though.
Recovery seems relatively fast with the detector picking up a coin next to a lump of iron.
Only had a chance to test it in the garden once and it is full of targets, broken toy cars etc etc. I managed 5 minutes before it rained. I managed a decimal 1/2p though
Going to take it out to the dry sand tomorrow to see how it copes.
So far I am very impressed with this old model detector!
