Metal Detector Used: Beach Series (621-0167)


February 27th, 2014

I have been using a Surfmaster PI Dual Field detector for the last six months and it has located targets at depths that I did not believe were possible. This past fall, I was using my Surfmaster on a salt water beach. I was following directly behind several other people using VLF detectors from a different manufacturer. Despite this beach being hammered by other detectors over the years, including the ones directly in front of me, I got a clean signal knee-deep in the water. Utilizing my long-handled stainless steel scoop I started to dig in the surf. Struggling against the incoming tide I removed scoop after scoop of sand. It seemed as though I would have to dig forever. Finally, I located the target at just over 20 inches deep in the sand. It was a 1940 Mercury dime... Yes, a silver dime at over 20 inches deep, incredible! Due to the extreme depth, I'm sure that many other detectors passed right over this target without so much as a beep. All of The Pulse Induction detectors from White's ensure maximum depth in highly mineralized environments. That additional depth translates into a major advantage over "standard" detectors on a salt water beach. My beach finds have increased dramatically since I've been using the Surfmaster PI Dual Field. Overall, I am very impressed with the performance of this machine. Thank you for making such a great product! Sincerely, Tom (PA)
