Thinking of getting into the MDing. I've been trying to do my homework, spent the last 2-3 days reading lots of info here. Thanks for the great site.
I live in central Fl, about 45 minutes from beaches in Tampa, St Pete area. Are any of these suitable for shallow salt water, wet sand, or strictly dry sand use? Also plan on searching the normal areas, but am thinking more jewelry gets lost at the beach. Lots of traffic, lots of area.
Are any suitable for meteorites?
Should I invest in a DD coil on the F2? What advantage does the coil have over the standard coil? Should I buy the F2 with regular coil and buy the DD coil later?
I would probably be MDing with the wife. Is it possible to use 2 detectors 20-30 feet apart without interference if they are different frequencies? I thought about getting the F2 and maybe a Compadre if they would be OK together.
I'm leaning toward the F2 right now. Quicker reset and 5yr warranty. I would like to stay around $300 for one, or up to $450 for both.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Maybe dropping in on Flphil tomorrow.
thanks in advance,
