Hi; Welcome to the forum. I have had similar problems here in North Carolina when trying to use all metal mode in red clay. I just figured it was because I was new to the machine (AT-Max) and didn't know what I was doing. There was an area I wanted to detect for relics but the all metal mode on that red clay freaked me out and I gave it up for the time being. I think the next time I will try manual ground balancing after I automatically ground balance. My learning curve seems to be coming along nicely in the other modes. Good luck with your red clay.
