FWIW every salt beach also changes in other words. Say even if you are using say a CTX the sand shifts, salt content changes from rain, tide, etc. You can be going along smoothly then get some bad signals, etc. Single frequency can work in the dry sand good. But hit that wet stuff and youll wish you had a pulse induction or multi frequency. But PIs aren't for everyone. I have owned several and don't care to ever buy another one for beach hunting. Bobbie pins, hooks, rusty iron chips can make you dig thousands of worthless holes.

In the battle of Thermopylae the Persian Armies demanded that the Greeks surrender their weapons. King Leonidas responded saying "Molon Labe." Translation "Come and get it".

The salinity of water varies on the location too! Having coworkers that take daily water and soil samples has provided me with a lot of info. We found the salt (PPM) content of some beaches can be as much as double as that on others. Then add mineral deposits and it is certainly easy to understand why some folks have issues while others don't.
