Upgrade time / beach detecting - Credo DDM

Post by ScoopyDoo » Sun Aug 28, 2016 1:19 pm

I'm mostly into beach detecting, and currently use a CScope 990XD. It's a great machine for a few reasons, one, it's non motion which I really like, and two, I love working with the tones that it produces, which really help me know when it's time to dig, and what I can expect to find. The thing that lets it down, is depth.

I'm considering a Credo DDM as it seems like a lot of detector for the money, and my hope is that it could be a natural step up from what I'm used to. So I would be very interested to hear from anyone that has spent a lot of time using one on the beach. What are its pros and cons, etc.

When beach detecting on the wet sand, I find that PI detectors give a much better result in respect of depth. Of course there is a limit to the depth which is more to do with the hole filling in and collapsing.

With Credo DDM and 10"DD coil you can expect 1 pound coin at 10" on the tidal line. A little bit away to the dry sand you will get it deeper.
You will not find any white gold items as they are rejected together with the salt water.
Yellow gold and all other metals are within maximum range.

Hi Nexus
I know this is an old post but could you explain more about the white gold rejection as I believed white gold was only a plating a few microns thick over yellow gold and a true 'white' gold is impossible.
It is quite worrying if a few microns of plating would make the machine reject a gold item.

I read this as I am searching Nexus machines in view of buying one against the other top brands > £750

Hello Cabbie.

White gold is a solid alloy not just a few microns overlay.
On the wet sand white gold is rejected together with all of the tiny gold chains, because they have the same phase shift as the salt water and this goes for all IB detectors. Most manufacturers never bother to mention this.

I have never heard of a yellow gold jewellery been plated white on top as white gold is actually cheaper than yellow gold. However a few microns of white gold on top of a solid yellow gold item will not stop the detector of finding that target.
