Garrett Seahunter mk2,wet sand
High tide Early today so had the Garrett Seahunter MK2 on this trip, and changed from the usual large coil to the standard coil.
It really did impress me for a change today, as there wasnt much iron around.
I Stayed out detecting with the Seahunter longer than i normally would with a PULSE detector, as it was really finding plenty of good targerts today.
And also a very short hunt with the CTX3030 and 17" coil, but really the seahunter did the majority of the detecting and found lots of coins and a nice old ring, tried the CTX3030 with the 17" coil to see if i could get that bit of extra depth, but it wasnt really going anywhere with that today.
Managed to pick out plenty of coins and the bonus find of a ring.
SEAHUNTER is Fitted with the ANDERSON Carbon Shaft, which really does take the wrist strain away and also makes it much better balanced.

seahunter settingsIts not too often i'll write a "how to piece" on setting up a metal detector as everyone has their own preferances, although everytime i do get asked when im out people often comment "You use Discrimination?"
Well when i use the either the Garrett Seahunter MkII or the Garrett ATX, yes they both have a somewhat crude form of discrimination even though they are Pulse Induction metal Detectors.

The Seahunter has the discrimination knob on the rear of the control panel
Along with the ON/Off Control and also the Threshold knob.
Usually for Detecting on "Wet" Sand i have the discrimination set at "0" and the threshold at just above audiable so i can hear the tone, it is a tone and not a hum as with many detectors including my CTX3030.

seahunter thresholdThis is my setting for the threshold

My Discrimination Setting for "Wet" Sand

Now the Setting for Discrimination on the Dry Sand. I use this mainly to not pick up bottle tops and Bobby/Hair pins.
It is i would say 80% ok but yes i do still did bottle tops but not as many.. I Do not turn any higher and try to loose ring pulls or tabs as this also in the range of some fine jewellry, ie gold... and even on my CTX 3030 i do not discriminate out those, i did everything on the beach if it sounds good, but with a PI detector it will pick up everything..

I Have the dial at About 6 or just slighty under... this does also Affect the depth that this will now Seek the goodies, ive found it reduces to about 6"-7" maximum, but on the dry sand where losses are usually fresh this isnt really too much of an issue..

Now the Discreat Discrimination setting, is pretty handy as you hear the threshold but without all the background noise of the standard setting.

But on the wet sand i have this on standard as to hear everything thats going on, usually on the beaches i detect its very noisy as there littered with iron.

So there you have it, these are the best setting for me when coin shooting with the Garrett Seahunter 2. you may find them useful, or they may not work for you and where you detect. At the end of the day there arn't many controls so just have a twiddle..
Feel Free to comment if they work for you or not..

3 metal detectors on the beach to have a look at which is the better, the Seahunter and ATX are both Pulse Induction Detectors and the CTX3030 is a multi frequency detector, all 3 performed ok (ish) as the beach has alot of iron scrap on it, did manage to find a viccy halfpenny and a clip of live .303 rounds from the war.
