Beach Hunter ID Usage.

Sandman in Florida right now - best
This detector is very easy to use for dry sand or wading in shallow water. With its 3 different tones it IDs most targets accurately. Though it can identify some targets with the same conductivity right, but we may think it lied. The main advantage to using this ID feature is to adjust it to hear and ID all items and not retrieve the low tones (iron) or high tones (mainly coins) and just dig the mid tones (rings and pull tabs.) This allows you not to waste time digging coins and concentrate on the gold rings only. If this detector has a disadvantage, it is the floating coil. You need to force it down in the water, but it is lighter to use on the beach this way. At least, a weighted coil is available for this detector from Whites. Unlike the Minelab Excalibur, this detector will discriminate out both iron and a good target that is near the iron. This is a no-no for beach hunters as there are a lot of nails and bobby pins in the sand.
