Hello David and welcome to TreasureNet... Are you a new hunter or do you have experience......? If your new then recommend you look at a VLF detector like the Minelab Excalibur or Fisher CZ 21, multifreq detectors are much more stable in salt water conditions including the sand. If your new I advise you stay away from the PIs till you get more experience. I have known at least a 6 or 7 new hunters who bought PIs and everyone got rid of them due to the frustration of digging every tiny piece of iron on a beach... PIs are good, especially on clean beaches, but it takes a while to learn them....

What ever you get good luck and again welcome to TreasureNet....

I have hit alot of spots peppered by guys with minelabs - I have followed them with Pi and Cz (in all metal)- dug iron they passed by and have gotten many old gold next to and under iron - not just one or 2 rings - im talking probably 20 gold rings at least over the yrs

The mistake these guys are making Casper is they are not checking each null found with a 90 degree different sweep, when it nulls you HAVE TO rescan the target again but from a 90 degree difference direction from the first sweep... You can't just let it null and walk off thinking it was just iron, it works I have found gold with iron, but got a solid null on first sweep one direction, moved to a 90 degree difference from first sweep and got a tone for the gold.........

Great point treasure hunter. The details often make the difference between a so so day and a great day in the water.
