Post by shotwell » Wed Sep 27, 2017 8:39 am

Been looking at lazer scout with 8 inch coil polo the use would be for woodland and trashy ground
and some foreshore hunting .
Would this be a good machine to have for these situations if I were getting 6 inch of depth with this
I would be happy .
Any thoughts from you guys as need some advice as I do have chance to buy one at moment
Advice sooner the better much appreciated . :-/

Kinda of topic as it doesn't relate to the Scout.

First some woodlands the buildup of leaves year in year out make old finds out of reach. Deciduous woodland that has little wind or slope you will find WW2 artifacts are already 12" or more down.

If there is no room to swing easily a no motion detector is the way to go.

Some of the best copper alloy Saxon finds I have seen have come from beech woodland that have a slop

Whatever you deside I wish you happy hunting.

PS. I use to have a Bandido with a 5 1/2" coil that was no motion in all metal mode. This was ideal around tree roots and the solid coil didn't get caught up in the bramble like a spider coil does.

I have a scout and hawkeye, and really love the scout. My permissions are both pasture and woodland, and always use the scout in the woods - it's so pointable and light and the iron discrim is brilliant. It may seem limited with no display and one tone, but you will soon learn the difference between the quick chirps of junk and the fuller beep of coins etc. It just loves coins, musket balls, buckles and bullets. The Thames mudlarks favour the scout too. I got mine secondhand for £120 and for that kind of money, I think it's great. Pentechnics do a boost for the scout too, which claims to give an extra couple inches depth, which I may try at the same time as getting it serviced, but in all honesty it doesn't really need it! I would recommend one to anyone! I have also used it on the beach and find it very good. May need to turn sensitivity down a little on the really wet stuff, but generally very stable. Good luck!
I've done the 'buckle boogie', the 'musket-ball mambo' and even the 'silver shuffle', but sadly still no 'gold dance'. You're really gonna know it when you see it though!
