Good vid Calabash.

I can see how some folk would cringe at the results, but on some sites i run my detector with a tone break level where small nails start to high tone, I'll couple it with running the iron voulme at a level where the iron tone doesn't overpower the high tone, i will dig some small nails, but it finds me items like buttons with a steel back, maybe a nice buckle or other mixed metal items, BUT the big difference is that I THE USER, once my site is depleated to a point, choose to set my machine at that level.

It seems the Max can't disc above this point, and the noise it makes is dreadful and without iron volume.

I was running disc wide open on 44.... they are saying to turn the iron audio on and disc at 44 and it will tell ferrous or non ferrous but it there is a bit of iron within 10 inchs of a nonferrous target it gives the iron buzz.. No iron vol was a bad move for garrett.The boast is its deep in all metal and it is but if you cant use that feature what good is it?? I could never use it around here there is iron to some degree on all my sites and to me it has a weakness when any iron is close to a target. even 8 or 10 inchs away from it still gives the iron buzz. I would love to see a live dig video of someone hunting in all metal with this machine ,from what I showed in the test video if their relying on the iron audio they will be leaving all kinds of non ferrous in the ground unless they have a site with no iron.

Better to know whats going on instead of thinking your cleaning the ground out. If you know then you can adjust your hunting style some what to help.

Good vid! A lot has been said already about turning around targets for tones.
It works all day with my Impact and ATmax. I always do the 180 around hard to read targets.

What do you do if you get a good signal and turn on it and it goes bad?
