    Macro Gold Racer - Salt water beach

    Will the MGR perform well at a salt water beach for coins and jewellery. Thanks

    Running at over 50kHz, the Makro Gold Racer will not work well in the wet sand, and not at all in the water. In the DRY sand you'll do fine.

    I'm still trying to learn this machine and how change the settings and what it is changing. You say running over 50kHz, is there a way to lower that or is that a factory setting?

    Nope. The Gold Racer is a gold prospecting machine - period. It was designed to find very SMALL low conducting targets (like gold pickers and nuggets). Saltwater beaches require machines that can handle the extreme mineralization from salt and other minerals in high concentrations.

    Pulse induction, and Multi-frequency machines are used in saltwater, and on wet saltwater sand.

    Really a Fisher 1280? Why, because it's waterproof? Crappy saltwater beach detector. In my 40+ years beach detecting experience I say NOT. The rest, its just a matter of their ranking.
