    Treasure Hunter.......Every beach is different, even different parts of same beach sometimes are different. What I do is set sensitivity so it is stable then bump it up just a hair hotter. If it isn't stable you will constantly be hearing false signals.
    I agree with treasure hunter but one little detail to add specially on older or sanded in beach's where targets can be Just out of range. I do as Treasure hunter said then as I find a deep faint target then I will adjust to the best report in PP. From there I will set it up a notch to where it falses a little (On the edge). After hunting this way I have got use to good and false targets, (most of the time). Checking iffy targets and faints with the wiggle-wiggle of the coil has really made a different in my 2015 totals.

    I knew my CTX went deep but this was a bit much for a silver ring. Click image for larger version.
