    Are you ground balancing it properly? Try swinging your coil Parallel to the water Instead of crossing varieing degrees of compaction and salt content.
    And ground balance each time you change the conditions your swinging over.
    You shouldn't be getting constant False signals.. some is normal.. but they're easy to tell apart from repeating targets.

    Anything involving saltwater requires to be rinsed off at the end of the day! Otherwise you get this!

    Not all saltwater beaches are the same as for salt concentrations and black sand. This can even change on the same beach whether in the water of on the wet sand. This is why many say it is not a Saltwater detector. Only the double freq detectors or PI's operate without falsing at wet sand saltwater beaches. AT Pro works on the dry sand and some of the wet stuff and is a good freshwater unit too. Though again somebody is going to complain about a leak and totally bad mouth it. It is not a water detector guys.

    Well put.
    I do routinely use mine in 1-3 foot depth saltwater with no problems.

    Yeah.. mine is too.. it happens.
    Try to make sure you rinse it real well before retracting the shaft..little bits of sand can get in and act like sandpaper.

    The AT PRO is the true dream machine. Gets great depth even on small jewelry without any false signals. Picks up gold chains. Quiet operation even in black sand. A dream in the salty surf, it is so stable. The guys that use them where I hunt always kill it. That will be my next machine for sure!

    Mine falsed some at Myrtle (wet sand and and surf) but can't wait to give it another go next month in Jersey. Now that i got a decent scoop, I'm curious how it will perform there. Def prefer the stock coil over the 5x8 at the beach.
