Default What numbers are you digging on the NOX?

Here a look at a relic and its VDI numbers.

Another awesome video Calabash.

I dig everything from 1-=40.

I've seen videos of people digging gold on the beach as low as 1!

To me, if it's repeatable and/or sounds hood...i'm digging it.

IMHO...people who notch out numbers on the vdi with discrimination are gonna miss stuff.

Thanks for the video dude.

Matt.

I never disc anything out and usually run in all metal just to hear everything, but I normally only dig solid numbers 8 and above, but it depends where I'm hunting. Sometimes at the soccer field I'll dig lower numbers.

It depends on where I'm hunting.

In my tot lots its anything 1 or above. For this I have customized coin 2 program.

For coin hunting I have 12-13 open and 18+ open. Everything else is blocked. For this I use a customized Coin 1. I use this at most parks/schools/yards.

For relics I use my tot lot program. Basically anything above a 1 give a tone, but, I watch for stable numbers before I make a decision to recover.

I'm pretty sure he means no bouncing VDI

This tiny gold was a solid tone going from 8-9. I almost passed on it, but this site has very few targets left that are a solid tone above iron. Found with my 600 in park 1, 23 sensitivity, all metal.
