As for myself, I don't. And don't recall anyone else using it in any of the videos or threads which is where I learned the info.

Pitch hold,,,I've played with some,,,IMO better used when targets are few and far between.

Sorta like a wake up call,,,when you hadn't hit anything in a while.

Minelab made a mistake here,,,they should have made ferrous line adjustable while using 2TF,,,if they would have,,,a big plus.

CTX,,I beleive a user has the flexibility to do.

Forgot to say,,,folks who love where dirt is milder like in Midwest can get away with using 2TF more,,and not leave good targets in the ground.

My area,,2TF is a no no.
Agreed. I live in TN as well and have tried ttf as much as anyone else but I seem to have the most luck in multi conductive
