Beach detecting - settings?

Post by LloydF »

So dry sand you can pretty much run your normal settings?

I've seen the video on set-up for wet sand. Essentially, discriminate below 70/80, reduce sensitivity until falsing stops, my question is, if you discrimate below 80, are you drastically reducing your chances of finding gold? And, am I right in thinking that most of the falsing on wet sand would be in the 50-70 range?

Going for my first beach hunt next week, interested in any tips if you use your 400i on the beach?

Have always used the 400i on discrim below 60, inland and dry sand. Wet sand will false at 60+.
Not found any Gold but coins will come in at mainly 70-85.
Silvers at 92-93, Pre dec 6d at 62.
Sensitivity 2 bars off Max, Custom Setting.
Believe the chances of finding Gold are minute, so stick to the above on dry.
