    Thanks David. I may have to look at an upgrade. I refuse to completely retire my trusty100 (as it has served so well over the past 10+ years), but maybe I can talk my boss into adding an 800HL to my repertoire.
    I seek not to know the answers, but to understand the questions.

    Developing a talent of gauging the target becomes a real skill, when you challenge yourself by staying on the edge...

    I consider this technique- pendulum locating

    Its the same mentality as in martial arts training- challenging your physical/mental limits of breaking cinder blocks and boards....

    Different people have different techniques. It's what make the world fun. I only gain out to sweep, then I am in as narrow as possible to isolate and run. I never liked the pendulum style, and I found that swinging it too wide could make it chirp on anything, and sometimes on nothing. Guess it was a skill I just could't learn.
    Sort of the same for the boards and ciderblocks. I tried it, but never really liked it. I just wanted to learn to defend myself and family, and then it became a fun way to exercise (not to mention a great stress relief). These days, I am getting more into the philosophy aspect.
    Kind of like locating; I did not really understand the science behind it for the first few years. I spend that time just trying to keep no shows down. I started to really learn after the first damage

    Good Method. I like to stagger my transmitter at intervals when I suspect multiple targets. The goal is to let my signal "bleed" to where I want it to go or in opposite of a known target that may be obscuring another target.

    Definitely agree. I've used my 800HL on a gas line when the contractor failed to pull the trace wire up through the ground. I placed it on the ground by the regulator and lit it up with the 480KHz; tracing it to the road. Then back-traced it from the road back to the regulator. About 120ft. total. My Metro. 810 could not do this!!
