I have been detecting since the 1970s and have tried most machines, some good and not so good. I have spent good money on top spec machines and have been disappointed with the results of their performance. Over the years, I have found that 'simple' is best, and 'digging them all' does pay off, believe me!
I have been detecting for many years on the beach, and this machine takes some beating. This detector with only two knobs is so simple to use: switch on, adjust the pulse, and away down the beach to the wet sand. Highly recommend this for the beach. I have not tried it on the land, so can't say how it performs there.
I have always believed that discriminating is overrated. Dig it all up and discard what you don't want. Best finds this way even if it takes longer - patience wins in the end.
PI machines have the ability to find all and that's it. If it's there, they'll find it. So you can keep your discriminators with all their whistles and bells, and give me a PI for the beach every time. Good hunting!

Powerfull Easy To Use Quality Detector - Great for Beach!

Mark in uk - best
Just recently I bought a CS4PI (264 inc h/fones/coil cover + batts) which is a good price in the UK. I have had various brands of detectors for dry land use including Garett, Minelab and White's. The CS4PI is a refreshingly simple machine to use - only 2 settings, and away you go and, boy, does she go deep 10 inches + easily! And having the option of hip mountable control box is great! Coupled with my PI Vibra-probe 580, it makes beach/wet sand detecting easy and as good as a Garrett Sea Hunter, as long as you don't want to submerge the control box. Happy using 1.2v rechargeable batteries (using h/fones saves on battery). A great product which I've been told is a legendary back-up from C-Scope!

My New Best Mate

Russ in uk - best
Just got a 4pi. I dont know much about detectors and haven't been doing it long but want to move to the beach and the 4pi seems a good sensibly priced machine. I have tried it in a field and it worked fine.
I found lots of stuff nothing valuable but the tone does sound clearer or louder for different things. After a lot of use, it should get easier. I can't wait to get it to a beach. I had a mishap with the control box retaining clip, emailed cscope, and they sent one out straight away. I was supprised how soon it came. So well done, cscope! And beaches full of lolly - here I come. By the way, I don't mind lots of digging. I don't use much disc on my other detector anyway.

Best Metal Detecter by Far

Gerald Longman in u/k - three stars
Hi! I use my 4psi for land and beach. I've been detecting for 30 years and used most of the detectors. To date, this is the best machine I have had. My advise: listen to your p/i! You will be the discriminator, not the machine. PI detector goes deep. I only dig on a clear signal. Yes, at times, I get false ones. In given time, you will pick them out as you do iron. The p/i is well made fit for the job. I sold my 3 mx because the p/i is better all around. I only dig about 12 inches deep. On land or beach, most things are found at that depth. WHY dig forever? It is only a good hobby. But that is me. At least my p/i is going deeper than most machines at a good price. Ok, on land I run her at 3.00 in green and just off the threshold. On land - 3.30 green, and just switch on Silent. After many days out, these I find the best settings. Who needs dials to tell you, "maybe it's gold, etc." YOU CAN DO THAT yourself if you listen to your detector's signals. This machine will save you money. Good hunting and enjoy!

CS 4PI is the best beach detector by miles. I have found gold rings in the black sand. My moto is "dig everything!" One never can tell just what is down there.

Beach Machine

JB in usa - best
If you just hunt the sand (control box is not waterproof), then this unit is for you. It's well made, light, easy to use, and it punches deeeep. You will not be disappointed! Happy hunting!
