    I have used the surveyor flags on my grid pattern for many years. I cut the wire to 6" and have a place in my belt bag to carry a hand full of them.

    Exactly what I do when gridding. Just keep hopscotching the back pair of flags. 😁

    I either use small flags like they use to mark buried phone and electrical lines or I use landmarks and focus on a spot each pass. I did a 60 acre soccer park one time and it took me 2 months to grid hunt it. One that site I used about 10 flags and moved one every pass.

    I like the tennis ball idea and may try that.

    I don't detect for the stuff I find, I detect for the stuff I haven't found.

    If I didn't find it I hope you did.

    And go slowly. Also keep in mind that after rain or winter frost heaves targets my now be within your detectors depth range.
