Well, I took my new 12" EVO out for a stroll last Saturday. Sorry to say no GOLD but I was really on a mental health day, enjoying the delightful day on a familiar hill and seeing how this new coil handled things. I skimmed through old areas where nuggets had been found for the past 20 years by every machine known to man and by some of the very best detectorist/miners in the game. This coil behaved very nicely on my 4500. I was able to run in General search mode with the gain at 12, sensitive smooth and timings in Enhanced. I am very impressed with the fact that I am able to scrub the ground and bang it into bushes and rocks without false signals. It has no trouble going on its side or upside down, the threshold stays rock solid. While there was lots of airplane traffic, not one bothered me at all. Occasional ground balancing due to the red hot soil is normal for this hill and the EVO responded perfectly. I did notice that there was only one particular hot rock that sounds like a target, the stuff that looks like baked sand, all grainy looking but move it out of the way with my boot and problem solved. I did not use a bungee as working in the thick bush is harder with one but the ability to put the coil in from the top then slide it around bushes, without false targets by banging into things is just what I have been looking for, get as close to the gold as possible. I did find a boot tack, ¼” long and small diameter at 2 inches and should have been found before, sounded like a ¼ dwt at 3 inches. We did do an air test with a 5000 and a 14” by 9” mono, non blitz but extremely a deadly elliptical coil on a 1/4 dwt. flake. I am 5 or 6 inches to his 3. Made me a believer to keep it on and find some deeper stuff myself. Can’t wait to get back out and find some gold.
