trident 2 on the sand

Post by russ 1 » Wed Aug 22, 2018 8:46 pm

Hi all, recently got a nice birthday pressie from the gang a laser Trident 2 or Tesoro vaquero and having used it several times have found it a fab machine to use as I had hoped I was surprised though when I popped to a couple of beaches in my area, thought Id try the dry sand and see what I could find , bit by bit I moved down onto the wet sand black sand and in the water at low tide with no problems of false signals etc I use the auto ground balance setting on the sand and its quiet as a mouse, until a signal just like on a field, hey I m not complaining its great but is this detector supposed to be good on beach as well as land? cheers, well happy. :))

Very few machines have a auto ground balance feature.
What you do have is a fixed setting and a manual setting .
You were lucky the fixed suited the wet stuff as it wont be optimum for both beach /inland . More a compromised setting .
This highlights what it says in manual that ground balancing to each site is very important .
Is yours fitted with concentric spider coil or DD?

I use the manual ground balance normally on land but even on land I ll use auto now and again and its still pretty deep
