The major benefit to PI machines is their superior depth in highly mineralized areas like salt water beaches. Frequency and depth have an inverse relationship, so the higher you get, the less depth you’ll get on coin-sized targets.
I am leaning toward your advice to get 1 fisher gold bug 2 and 1 minelab PI the SDC 2300. I live in Northern British Columbia, Canada and I was wondering which unit would be best for black sand, hot rocks and mineralized ground… The Equinox 800 or the Garrett Infinium LS.
I want to thank you for taking the time to to share your knowledge and experience with with us. There’s no need to buy the most expensive detector right away and have no idea what you’re doing.
Practice in your yard first, it’s helpful if you bury different objects such as trash, gold, and coins to figure out the best technique for your machine. It needs to be sufficiently close to the soil or sand so the magnetic field can penetrate, but not so low that you bash the sensitive coil on stones and clods of earth. If the detector still doesn’t work it may be time to change the batteries. Batteries transmit electricity down the detector’s shaft via cables to the coil.
eBay determines this price through a machine learned model of the product’s sale prices within the last 90 days. This is one of the more expensive models with the screw on coil cable so that you can easily put different coils on it depending on where you are detecting. Whether you’re a hop over to here metal-detecting expert or novice, we keep it simple. And, by the way, my 7 year old son Juanito found a nickel yesterday when he took his detector out for the first time!

As you increase discrimination the machine will ignore other metals like tin foil, can tabs, nails, and coins. A machine with ground balancing detects what type of ground you’re on, and eliminates the unwanted minerals in response. Using maximum sensitivity means ALL metal signals will ring out, including minerals and trash. An elliptical coil works in just the same way, albeit covers less ground in one swing, but it can reach into small, awkward spaces.
You need adjustable sensitivity to pick out the good stuff and not go insane with constant false signals. Experienced detectorists have a range of coils and chose one to suit the area they want to search.
