    Playgrounds

    Most of the Parks I go to have the steel posts for the playground equipment. Normally my XS starts beeping if I get within a foot of these post. Any tips on how I can stop this interference? I'm missing a lot of potentally prime areas.

    Re: Playgrounds

    There are three ways to do this.

    1. Don't use a detector.
    2. Use a smaller coil.
    3. Turn down sensitivity a lot. You'll still reach down a good ways since the detector isn't messing with much ground matrix.

    Good Luck,

    Another possibility is to get a Sunray Stealth X-5 coil

    It is kind of expensive but opens up new areas where the stock 10.5" coil doesn't work.
