interestingly Reg says that the SAD 7000 with the 19" coil could not hear this target at all! zilch , nothing!!!
Yep saw the 5.5 oz detected at 28" ... not bad eh?
So on this test the QED defeats the SAD7000! The QED can also detect some small gold and specimens that the SDC cannot!
Hmmm... musing over test facts & realities, not imaginings, this means 0" for the 7000, and 28" for the QED. (Inches = points in Bugs' cumulative comparison.)
Now, even assuming / believing the 19" is "~30% better than the 14" coil" (unproven, untested by Reg). That
is the same as saying the 14" is ~30% worse than the 19"!!
30% worse than 0" is still 0 (or less?). Lets be generous & say its the same as the 19".
Taking small liberties (just as marketeers do):
On the Bugs' scoring system if we include the 5.5 oz (slug) of buried lead into the target mix & compared results to a 7000 (14") only.
..... the QED scores an extra 28 points.
The QED Marketing Team assures me that this IS rational & scoring results gives:
- QED (with 12" coil) scores 248+28 = 276
- 7000 (with std 14") = 232+0= 232
So, the difference Doug becomes even more convincing!! SAD isnt it?
But the "QED marketing team", feeling quite restrained, will not
make % claims of this difference, even if this alarming finding is from an independant tester. Keep it "in house" a source of growing amusement.
