It's not wise to discriminate foil because many rings fall into the range of foil. I'd hate to miss a wedding band because of that. As to the iron, the Tesoro machines are made mostly for relic hunting and most of those are iron.

Don't worry too much about it. Most of the pros here dig every target anyway.

Discrimination only works when the targets are a moderate distance from the coil. In my Tesoro machines, that means more than 4 inches away.
