Fantastic depth, discrinination needs improving.John S MacPherson in UK -
I have owned a 1220R now for just over three years and I must admit that for all its habits, good and bad, I love the machine.
In G/D mode the depth is fantastic. In air 17 inches and in ground 14 inches with a 5p (dime). Who could ask for more. Switch to discrimination and there the fun begins. The same 5p is rejected at anything over 4 inches in all three modes.
Air tests with basic ring pull, silver coin, iron nail, gold ring and copper coin all tested at 6 inches in G/D mode. All above blows your ears off and once you adjust the discrimination setting whilst in D mode, the 1220R will show good or bad. However this is not always true with soil tests. Wet soil and almost all are rejected at over 2 inches deep but on dry soil discrimination works well up to about 5 inches. Deeper than that and everything is rejected. As C-scope say, you will lose some depth in D mode but they don't tell you that you lose over 60%.
Still its depth happily makes up for the poor discrimination. Smallest object found so far is a 3/4 inch copper pin at 11 inches. One day I will find that gold coin I am looking for, I just have to remember to dig every dodgy signal.
Happy hunting folks.
