You cannot look at an air test with PI's. It is no where near accurate.
Its the opposite with VLF machines. The air test is as good as it can get depending on ground conditions.
Agree on all counts... except that the infinium sucks dogs balls in wet sand, compared to air tests. The infinium must be the only PI that performs worse in wet sand than in my kitchen, on gold and silver, not on bottle tops. Tested this and used it for almost 3 years, STAY AWAY.

You must have a broken unit because mine has been by far the best PI I have used in wet sand here in NJ, and I have used most all of them. But that's for me and as we all know, conditions as well as the hunter involved dictate performance.

If it runs better in your kitchen than outside, something is not right.

You must have been using a broken machine, should have sent it in to be checked out. I know with my Infinium after about an hour of hunting the wet sand, I stop digging the whispers, because whispers are so painfully deep I waste all my energy and spend 5 minutes digging each whisper target. That is in the wet sand, I dont even dig whispers in the water, because they are impossible to recover before the sand fills in. This is in California, some of the hottest ground in the U.S.

You either weren't ground balancing correctly, or your machine was broken...

I did get it checked out, mainly because of other infinium users telling much more "promising" tales about the infinium and how well it works. There was nothing wrong with mine.

If you're going well with your infinium, there's nothing to worry about. I didn't do well with it so moved onto other detectors and I started doing well.

Well, when you scream to "STAY AWAY" from the Infinium... and say it "sucks dogs balls" on wet sand... that's completely false in my experience. Must have been a ground balancing problem...
