I have had the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw 2 for three years. I got married on an island in Casco Bay Maine and one of my wedding guests lost her ring on the beach. Since I stayed there for an extra week, I baught the metal detector with wedding money and found her ring.
Since then I have had no luck. My main problem seems to be constant false positives. My detector beepr indicating that theres someting 6-8 inches down. I dig and then the sound stops, nothing in the pile, nothing there. This happens repeatedly. Today I dub 20+ holes (and filled them back in) and found nothing and I don't even know what is setting off the detector. I suspect the beaches have some metal rocks deep down that are messing up my experience.
Any help would be much appreciated. Any help with the notch settings or sensitivity settings would be great. Also, where on the beach should I look? Nobody's been over the beaches I go to in decades and I'd love to find some cool stuff.
I'm going out tomorrow again but an a bit discouraged with the experiences that I have. The thing beeps every few feet, and nothing is ever there!
Thanks in advance for some tips.
