The XP ADX
200 metal detector
I have just been out testing the new XP ADX 200 metal detector and must say I am very impressed, before you say "here we go its another field test from a person who sells detectors" let me stop you there. All my reports are honest and written as an independent detectorist.

which is all metal searching, this mode will find literally all metals.
I started my search at the settings D1 with the discrimination set to 12 o'clock which rejected nails very well but allowed large Iron to come through as a loud dull signal. When I found a large piece of Iron I turned the discrimination up to the 1-2 o'clock position so that it was completely rejected (see pic).
I searched on with these settings and
found some very deep targets indeed, using my probe to ensure the targets were
at the bottom of the hole and not in the side.
I was convinced it would be lost by my
untouched discrimination settings, to my amazement it was a lovely clear signal,
even with the D1 turned fully up. I flicked the switch to the D2 expecting my
target to disappear or at best be broken, but no still clear as a bell.
Marks an easy 9.5/10
