how come

Come to think of it nobody posts any CZ comments to speak of. I had a CZ5 and always wanted to try a CZ70. The CZ3D with that hightone low conductor mode didn't fit into hunting trashy parks so many of us wouldn't consider it although the Salt mode does work as a regular CZ i believe

I had a cz6, now a 3d, but it'd been a couple of years since I used any machine or the 6. I'd read something about that salt mode in trashy parks but can't find it again. Only had the 3d out twice but it seemed almost the same as the 6. I really liked the 6, sorry it got away on me.

I tried listening to it in '0' mode but got tired of the iron buzz and was looking for nickels and up. Park is 150 yrs old. After 6 hrs, so was I, lol.

Not sure what you mean by hightone low conductor mode. If I recall the cz5 was the non splash proof plus speaker version of the 6? Think this 3d has same four tones as my 6 did.

Any advice or observations appreciated!

Hi awshucks,

I never used a 3D but try to keep up a little on detector models i liked such as the CZ's. What i meant by the Hightone lowconductor mode is the "Enhanced mode" that within certain parameters will allow lower conductive targets such as nickels,gold, and other older coins such as 2 cent pieces and IH's etc to respond with a Hightone audio response yet ID them on the meter as a low to midrange target. Supposed to work best at less trashy older sites as some pulltabs will peak a lot of hightones.

thanks bill

my 6 was fond of calling old copper w/ patina 'zinc' and nickels were a crapshoot, lol.

I dug one high tone pop top already, 1st of many I'm sure. I made some amazing [to me] finds w/ the 6 in Illinois. I found a Merc at 10-12", a SLQ at a foot or so, ect. Course lots of old nails too. I have a bad habit of checking signals I know are no good in the hopes of finding silver on edge.

Thanks!

Speaking of fun, I took my gal pal's 9 yr old to a spot [circle, about 50 yds across] where the local MD club has salted coins for kids and new folks to hunt. Wheats, IH, clad, some silver. He found an IH, silver 1/2 BU in coin folder, a bunch of wheats, and an Ike clad SD.

All their coins are at most 2" down. Not my cup of tea, but I was fooling around w/ the cz3 to 'find' good places for him to check w/ cheapy model I borrowed for him.

I got a good hit about 5" down and knew it was a silver dime. Best described w/ a cz as sweet, clear, and small signal. It was a Merc but the real pleasure for me was remembering those sounds from my 6.

It wasn't a club plant. I'd met the guys in club at a shoot there a week prior and they told me we were welcome to hunt it. I pointed to an adjacent area and said I was going to hunt it. The officer told me he didn't plant any coins there. I told him that's why I wanted to hunt it, lol.
