sensitivity 9 compared to 18+

Post by oneday on Mon 21 Mar 2016, 6:50 am

I tinker with my Z every time I have it out bush and one thing I have noticed is the marked difference the low mark 9 on sensitivity compared with my normal setting of 18-20 has on a target.

I found targets that the 5K with the Elite coil didn't find yet they were as clear as the sun rising on the Z.

any one else notice the same effect.

Yeah ,but the 18" is out today and your depth advantage just went out the window

At least I'm hoping

Hi Ray,
Are you saying that the lower sensitivity setting is better than the high ?

just saying I have more chances of finding gold in the high numbers especially rocky schist country.
I run mine on 18-20 most occasions.

only had the zed a coupla weeks

Thanks Ray, I'm looking forward to this season with the upgrade and will crank up my machine and see how it goes.

Speciman, I'd suggest you try playing with the settings when you get a target and see if you can improve it before digging,pay close attention to swing speed.....slowwww is the go

Hi All,

Minelab state that if your GPZ can detect a ten cent coin at 19" your good to go, some can get 21-23"

In case you didn't realise that was an air test, so catch up fella's

Now flypoop that's another matter

Cheers Ron
