    What are your thoughts on the Garrett Sea Hunter? Does anyone have any experience with one?
    Not a popular machine. Whites Dual Field would be a better choice if you MUST have a PI machine. Just a friendly reminder that I have my 8-month-old Equinox 600 up for sale in the Classifieds.

    Terry, Sorry to keep picking your brain, but why do you think it is not a popular detector? Also, I thought PI's didn't have descrimination, but in videos the Sea Hunter seems to?

    The Sea Hunter is heavy and unbalanced. It does NOT "discriminate," it "eliminates." This is one of the reasons I dislike the machine - it's hobbled from the get go. Less depth than the Sand Shark, or Dual Field. When you flip it into "Standard" or "Discrete" trash ELIMINATION you instantly lose an inch in depth, and are guaranteed to miss small gold rings.

    Seriously, if you have to have a PI, and you don't, go with the Dual Field. I'm so sure you should get the Equinox that I'm willing to knock off another $25 on mine - but ONLY for you, because the machine will change your hobby life forever. Good luck no matter what you decide, but if you really want a machine that will work in saltwater and wet sand, then go effortlessly into farm fields, woods, parks, wherever, buy a new Equinox 600 where I bought mine! 3720-0001 | Minelab Equinox 600 | Fort Bedford Metal Detectors
