    Too many rocks?

    I was at a Cape Cod Bay beach in Brewster that has way too many rocks from small to potato size everywhere that produced a lot of false signals and gave small old rusted bits of iron a positive number. Maybe some of these rocks contain trace amount of minerals that would make it difficult for the Nox not to mention extremely hard digging. I kept moving away but many times I would get a repeatable #14, dig it and it would disappear. A lot of sand movement at all the Bay beaches exposing gravel pits. The sugar sand in Fl must be really nice. I tried different sensitivity even as low as 16. I switched recovery speed from 4 back to 6. That didn't help much either. Slim pickins only two pennies, small rusted iron bits and two pull tabs at around 10 inches. My wife insists that I go wading with it again. With my luck it will leak again. Maybe I should. It's only 1 year old on a 3 year warranty.

    I love finding rocks on my beaches. That's when I start finding the old stuff. Don't be afraid to turn the Equinox sensitivity down.....even under 10 if necessary. It will still pick up some fairly deep signals and better than getting falsies all day long. Yeah, digging in that cobble can be exhausting, but, the rewards can be worth it.
