Yesterday afternoon I spent a couple of hours on rotted stubble where the regrowth had also been sprayed off. It was soft and easy so I intend to try my Ultimate on it next time out.
I have had my E-Trac for just over a year but used it a lot.
When the stubble was hard, freshly cut and the ground dry, the loss of depth made finds few and far between but once the soil got damp and the stubble softer, it was much easier to get the coil down nearer the ground and things improved dramatically on the same area.
As for settings, much will depend upon your ground conditions. In general though, a small amount of discrimination in the bottom right hand corner of the screen (tadpole) and sensitivity on Auto+3 is currently serving me very well.
I have found the E-Trac takes a lot of learning, which is still work in progress here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have
