    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.

    Have you thought of those day glow golf balls? I've made up 11 (used to be 12) with SS welding rod (4"long) in a drilled hole with a drop of superglue. Those lil boogers are handy as heck! They don't roll, good markers, and great for holding the tip of your long tape measure. Made a few for a friend that was tying surveyors tape on everything in sight except his legs. Only time I found they didn't work was with my labby. She kept bringing em to me. How do you explain to a dog, no I meant to leave it there.... sheeze......

    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!
