Not much saltwater beach detecting in that video. A little underwhelming it was.

Plus the fact that we have no idea what the differences might be between his test unit and final production software.

Finally a real bit of footage.

Thanks Dr. Tone and Minelab.

Probably still limited as to how much they are allowed to show.

But it was good to see some IDs and hear a little of the tones.

Detector, have you seen the Neil Jones salt water video? While not the high quality editing of Dr Tonesí videos, I found it pretty enlightening. Super stable, and hitting a deep coin on edge.

Zeemang, itís a darn Facebook video, but Iíll link a post below that has it (the first link in the first post takes you to Facebook, DONíT click that one!) scroll down to Steveís post (fourth post I believe) and youíll see the video.

Anxious to hear what you think.

If you did, your neck would be hurting when you woke up.

I really don't want to log in to facebook to watch the video, I guess I will wait for someone to post it on youtube.

No need to go to Facebook, itís linked FROM that pesky Facebook. Here is a direct link to the post:

http://www.detectorprospector.com/fo...&comment=52537

I hope you watch it, it shows a lot more than Dr Tonesí video. They bury a coin on edge at least 7 inches deep, maybe more in wet sand, with waves spilling over and with sensitivity maxed its super stable and still hits the deep coin. Itís pretty eye opening (in my opinion).

Ah yeah, that was pretty wild. Not sure the coin was on edge as he stomped it down pretty hard but Iím thinking after that stomp it was even a little deeper. Geez that wind was gusting hard, pretty good demo being right on the sand surf tide line with maxed sensitivity, really stable as far as sound. Wish we could have seen how stable the ID was.
