Dirt Fishing with the Berkut
Quote this message in a reply
Took me awhile to get this detector dialed in to where  it worked to my liking when it came to Canadian clad.
Did a lot of program changes last night, it basically runs silent in all metal mode now. Sometimes you wonder if its even turned on.
It hits the clad really well, newer and older. Love it when the quarters at 6" down come in nice and clear using the 6" coil, as do the pulltabs.
This new 2016 version I think is more powerful than the older version I had last spring. Found I was overpowering it with a Gain setting of 16-20.
It's happy as can be with a gain set at 7-9. What is nice the 6" coil was getting the 6" targets with no problem, even pencil eraser tops at that setting
and I was not picking up all the deeper trash that drove me crazy the other day with the higher Gain setting.
Now is set perfectly to find the Clad as well as gold rings and jewelry, just have to put the coil over it.
