Default NEL Thunder gets silver

Recently got a Thunder coil for my AT Gold. Started hitting my usual yards that Iíve been at for the last two years. Yesterday I was at a 1903 house that Iíve scoured extensively. About three hours got me a 1926 Mexico 1 cent, 1912 Barber dime (my second Barber ever) and a 1905 V nickel. Iím not exactly sold on the coil just yet. A lot of time wasted on ghost signals. I pretty much have to start out each day doing a hard reset on the detector. If not, the random chatter starts as soon as I start swinging. And almost all yards now ground balance at 0, when that previously wasnít the case. But these three coins were definitely in areas that were hit hard before, so I know itís working, just have to sort through the signals.

Nice coins. Give us an update after you have used it more. I was thinking about getting one for my ATP.

Mixed, four to eight inches. Soil here is unpredictable. Some of it is packed harder than a brick, and some is super soft. The dime was about four inches but soil was hard. Iíd already been over this spot at least three times with the stock coil.

I'm surprised the stock coil didn't pick those up.
