    With the advances of multifrequency VLF detectors, PI machines have become less relevent , but, not worthless. They have their place in the tool box.....mainly for deep targets and relatively trash free sites.

    I use a TDI Beachunter, I had the choice of a Nox but stuck with PI as I had a C scope before. As said, PIs are deeper...even than the Nox...VLFs don't work well where I am, highly mineralised sand and you have to back off the sens on most machines therefore losing depth. When my old PI was getting fixed I used my Deus and nearly snapped it in a temper it gave so many false signals ��
    I dig everything BUT I don't hunt top or mid only low, we have a huge tidal range and I hunt for history therefore I actually want Iron etc (cannonballs, shells) so the PI suits. If I was hunting rings then perhaps I'd go Nox as they seem to work well from seeing friends use them.

    So, the PI suits me and the conditions I hunt in, I think you need to figure out if it will suit you ��

    I have used a Whites Dual Field for several years. I've only found 5 or 6 gold rings rings so far. One chest deep in salt water the rest on wet salt sand. It's not much fun to use it waist to chest deep deep because the coil floats. I found a size 12 Tifanny Platinum 950 band that retails for $2000.00 at around 16" deep in the wet sand. That and the other rings gave a loud solid signal so I only dig those loud solid signals. Double beeps are small wire usually. It's unbelievable how much iron is under the sand. It is a lot heavier than the Equinox but will find stuff that vlf detectors can't especially if there is Black Sand. And if you have a Stealth scoop you will get a good workout

    LOVE my Whites Surf PI. She's getting old and needs some repairs but still a favorite!
