The detectorist suggesting a figure 8 swing may have been referring to the very end of the swing where you reverse direction; a figure 8 at each end of the swing. [The figure 8 would not cross at the middle) I often do this in the surf, where at the end of my swing I do not simply stop and reverse course; but rather, do more of a loop motion and in this sense my coil never really comes to a complete stop at the end of my swing (as it would when simply stopping and reversing direction).
