    Maybe a little trick.

    I was just looking through the Garrett catalog and found something interesting and hopefully useful for all my Sea Hunter brothers and sisters. It says and I quote " To help determine if a target is ferrous (iron), some users employ a reverse discrimination technique to check the item. With either Garrett pulse detector (meaning the ATX and Sea Hunter) simply increase Discrimination to maxium. If the target still produces a substantial signal, there is a good chance it is iron". Hope this helps speed up the learning curve.

    Have you tried doing this yet? Im curious to know. Sounds like it would work though seeing how the Sea Hunter does not discriminate out iron.

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    I had a Sea Hunter II and I will be trying it this weekend. Very cool idea and in principle it should work.

    Sea Hunter II - detecting iron

    I tried the discrimination technique this weekend and it works sometimes more on shallower targets than on deeper targets. For example, a shallow bottle cap will give a broken tone that tells you something isn't quite right still can't be sure unless you want to rely on that or dig to be sure. You still need to always dig deeper targets to know for sure. Let's face it, this machine is better off in the water, and I always knew that when I bought it.
