Seems it will detect a nickle to at least 14Ē deep in wet salt sand in Florida.
Sounds pretty deep to me in this environment.
Just because this unit is not multi freq, donít mean it canít do so em things very well innsalt water, even black sand. Not a typical single freq unit.

Wonder how deep Equinox in beach 2 will hit a nickle in wet salt sand in Florida?
Or even beach 1?.
And the coil the Tarsacci carries is 11Ēx9Ē,, So smaller than Equinox stocker.
