Yeah, the never-ending search for the better coil or better machine, while unfortunately the limits of VLF technology stay much the same...

Don't know what they "claimed", but the Racer 2 works very well in my environment. Finding the right setting is the key.

John Edmonton pretty much said the same thing when the Nox 800 began to ship. Know your machine and you will find stuff. If you're on a lot or field where there isn't any stuff, it won't matter what machine you use. You'll still find nothing.

Racer2 worked great for me too, but itís probably not for everyone.

I used the Racer 2 in a field and only was able to dig scrap metal that it called coins. Pieces of metal 1 1/2" to 3" wide, 6" to 12" long and 1/4" to 3/4" thick. I was using 3 tone with the OOR coil 4.5"x5" even with the pieces on our porch not near any nails they give a good tone and number. They didn't give any iron sound or overload. I even set the tone break clear up to 79 and that didn't help.

I used other detectors going down the same corn rows and found coins, buttons and tokens that the Racer 2 couldn't find.
