Vista RG 1000 V2
Real Field Test for the RG 1000 V2
First test was done on highly mineralised ground on a medieval site. I set up and manually ground balanced the detector making sure there was no metal under the coil. Lifting the metal detector up and down and turning the GB button clockwise or anti clockwise in a matter of minutes the detector was stable and silent ground balanced ready to metal detect. The first thing I noticed was this detector was very stable and when I got a target this detector give a good clear signal. Next after about 1 hour or so I had noticed the RG was picking up small targets like small pieces of lead with very good clear readings. I was detecting with a guy that had an XP Goldmaxx Power.and my other friend with Minelab Safari.
When I was getting readings I was asking my friends to check the same reading with the XP and the Safari to compare. A little while later I a got a clear but faint signal, I called my friends over to check the reading they said they thought it was either deep iron or junk, anyway I was getting a good reading so I dug it. This reading turned out to be the first hammered of the day at around 6 inches. Without exaggeration the other machines could not read the signal without thinking it was Iron or junk so this made me very pleased this detector had just give a clear signal on this hammered coin, remember this was on very bad ground.
Another great thing about the RG 1000 you can flick a switch under the control box and this gives a high pitch tone on good targets and low pitch tone on iron or junk. I love this feature and it give a positive reading on the coin we found. This was one of the short tests we give this detector and more to come.
