Some of you already know how easy to use and what these multi purpose detectors have to offer, for those who don't here's my approach too certain conditions.
My Take on the BLISS'S basic requirements in certain ground field conditions.
When the BLISS V3 is set at GAIN 2-3 it will compete with any other detector out there with that machines standard coil and the BLISS standard coil for depth, the reason I draw this comparison is this.
Would you go onto a dry field, a highly mineralised field or a highly mineralised dry field with your detectors running close or on full blast ! No, because if you did your detector would become unstable or just pretend to be detecting happily, like some I could mention.
So I hope you understand my basic thoughts of preparation depending depth required, ground conditions and task in hand.
PARK PROGRAMME approach.
When detecting a park most if not all the finds are within the top ten inches and they could be amongst tat and foils etc,
What we would need is a BLISS that could detect fairly shallow for the BLISS ( 10 ") so the GAIN would be set at MIN which in turn will free your DISC DEPTH ( from say 8 to 4-5) because it is not being depended on to disc out the deep small nails etc.
In turn this speeds up the detector because the processor is freed up (not waiting for the deep info and discrimination requirements,).
In turn the BLISS becomes very fast, but obviously if you are searching deeper the signal return WILL take longer to be processed as it has further to travel.(too and from).
So yes the BLISS has a Very fast recovery speed when the bliss is being utilised properly in balance to the GROUND conditions and the task in hand.
Ground dry open pasture low to med, mineralisation.
deep pasture In these conditions I would choose to use the Gain set at 1-3 and DD at 5- 7 the ground will not allow great depth because it is too dry so set the GAIN to suit.
Same ground conditions as above but damp soil,= GAIN 4 - 9. DD 8-10
Park or ploughed Roman site,
Regardless of ground, Search top 10-12" .
GAIN-min -1 DD 3-4 Disc toggle I (to clear top inches of small ferrous pollutants)
Once this sort of approach is used then you will begin to realise the BLISS is not just a deep seeker it is also a very fast surface searcher that loves silver.
Stay with this principle and you wont go far wrong.
Hope this helps.
