Hi 400i is still work in progress, frinton was a bit busy I'm trying a custom setting, notching out anything below 70 and using iron audio. Tried Thorpe bay last sunday, plenty of junk there ring pulls lumps of ali .
have a watch of Geoff beepingmad on YouTube, he has some great videos of the 400 working on wet sand too, I couldn't detect like that but he has it working, my problem is that by notching out all them numbers your missing so much of the good stuff, unless your just hunting for modern coins its all good.

perhaps one day we can actually arrange an MDF beach dig.. that would be good!! [:) ::g


Warm regards

Hi Adam, yep I've been looking at all the videos on the 400 as you do. I'll be back at Thorpe bay soon for another session to test me new pointer when it arrives ;)) . As you say discriminate too much and you loose stuff.
An mdf beach meet would be good, though I suspect better weather would be more conducive.

Keep at it Tony, I've now managed to get a couple of hrs out early tomorrow, but the tides are all wrong at 6.30am. It could be a very short trip to Southend. Roll on next weekend.
A bit nippy I got there at 7am left at 9 with a pound ( 400i breaks it duck) and plenty of ali fragments and other junk.

Regards Neil

I've just joined this forum having been detecting for around five years (but having taken the last couple of years off due to health) - and am quite literally itching to get out. I'm not flush with regards to permissions, but beach detecting as you've all put above ticks all of the boxes. I'm located in Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire (Midlands) and usually enjoy a day-trip up to Talacre (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talacre).

The main beach is approved to be detected on, plenty of history in the area (Training range within the second world war, numerous old beach-properties that have since been knocked down that were situated on the beach and nearby dunes) - and have pulled some fantastic little military relics out of the ground there! I appreciate it's getting colder and darker, but should anybody feel relatively robust, feel free to drop me a private message (or post here) and we can all get out. More the merrier! :D ::g
