    Aluminum cans at 2 feet will sound good with any machine you get. If you want discrimination where you won't dig as much iron, get a multifrequency machine, such as a CTX, Excalibur, Equinox, or CZ21. If you don't have much iron to contend with, your Sand Shark is a good machine for salt water. With an 8" coil, it's a bit small for wet/dry sand coverage though.

    I dont believe you would be gaining much with the Nox 15" over the standard but coverage. Have you thought about one of the 3 new machines thats out or coming out? MDT8000, TDI with a hotter battery, or the Fisher Manta.....

    GPX 5000 with a Coiltek Goldstalker.

    22" Goldstalker
    https://www.coiltek.com.au/coils/gol...2-goldstalker/

    This is the serious prospectors coil of choice for maximum depth and coverage whether searching for treasure or gold. It is known in the treasure hunting regions worldwide as the Cache coil with many users finding ancient artefacts at great depths, some as deep as 7 feet when used with a GPX detector. In open terrain on gold fields its outstanding for patch finding and deep nugget hunting. The Double-D (DD) configuration can utilise the Iron Discrimination function on GPX detectors.

    Compatible with all Minelab SD/GP and GPX detectors.

    Size: 540mm
    Weight: 1100g / 38.8oz
    Configuration: Monoloop (MONO) and Double-D (DD) coil

    GPX 5000
    https://www.minelab.com/eur/metal-de...ctors/gpx-5000

    Features:

    MPS, DVT & SETA Technology
    8 Timings make the GPX 5000 very versatile. It's like having 8 detectors in 1. In addition to five of the Timings found on the previous model the GPX 5000 introduces three new Timings: Coin/Relic, Salt/Gold and Fine Gold.
    Fine Gold Timing gives even more depth and sensitivity than Enhance — bring home more nuggets even from ground thought to be completely worked out!
    Salt/Gold Timing is great for all nugget sizes in salty ground — outstanding at the beach!
    Coin/Relic Timing is the deepest ever for benign ground conditions.
    Improved Enhance Timing for more depth
    Improved electronics for increased target sensitivity and ground balance performance
    Six preset Search Modes gives you easy switch on and go detecting. In addition to General and Deep search are: Hi-Mineral, Patch, Hi-Trash and Pinpoint. All six Search Modes can be modified to your personal favourite settings. Menu accessible Search Modes can also be renamed.
    Increased Rx Gain adjustment allows you more precise sensitivity control for optimum performance.
    Automatic Ground balance options make it easy to adjust the detector to suit all ground conditions. e.g. (Fixed, Tracking, Tracking speed, Ground Balance Type, Quick-Trac button).
    Audio adjustments to maximize target signals for your personal hearing ability e.g. (Threshold, Tone, Audio Type, Signal Peak, Response, Target Volume, Volume limit, Stabilizer).
    Iron Reject adjustable to suit the iron trash level where you are detecting.
    Motion control, adjustable to match your sweep speed and optimise target responses.
    Tune (also known as Noise Cancel) - Automatic and Manual options to minimize electrical interference.
    Backlight so that you can read the LCD menu in any light, allowing you to detect day or night. The back light also has an adjustable timeout to help preserve battery power.
    Lightweight Li-ion Battery with inbuilt Speaker Booster capability

    Ive got a White’s PI Dual Field Metal Detector I’d sell for $455 shipped to lower 48. It has a new coil and has been gone over by White’s since last used.
