I think a slow recovery speed means that if two items are close to each other then with your sweep you would pick up the first item but your machine would not recover quickly enough to pick up the second item. For instance i might drop some silver foil out of my pocket along with my diamond ring. They may fall to ground next to each other and so a machine with a slow recovery speed might pick up the silver foil if it was the first target on the swing then miss the ring.

Wouldn't matter if you dug everything and reswept the area but you might have been tempted to ignore the foil and so wouldn't then have hit the ring.

I think this is way on a very trashy area you want a fast recovering machine as it will help distinguish spot the items next to each other.

I think slowing down your swing speed will help counteract the slow recovery speed.

I also think that if you are doing a not very trashy area with signals few and far between a slow recovery machine doesn't matter that much as there are unlikely to be many items next to each other.

As you can tell i don't really know if i'm right!" onclick=";return false;
