Hi Rohana
wet sand detectors are a speciality machine very few perform well , vlf machines struggle , the top machines for wet sand use are.... the last link has a mix of land and water/wet sand detectors .

1:rohana, i got the same detector as you!!

im no expert as ive been detecting once ever!!
i can give you just one little bit of advise, go slow and close to the ground, then go slower, and closer. then dont lift and the end of a swing,
i reckon i went over the same target 20 times before i come could get a consistant noise from it... it was a piece of lead.

but then again i bet there is a thousand ppl that use this site, and all of them would know more then me drunken drunken

anyhow, good luck and happy swingin,. maybe we could learn from each other about these machines, cheers steve

HI Rohana,

The golden Micromax is not realy suited to saltwater beach detecting.
The detector has fixed preset ground rejection in both discriminate and All Metal mode, The level of GB Reject is not high enough to cover wet salty sand conditions but should work to a usable degree in the dry sand.

Try the disc mode with zero disc set in or set no higher than about 1/4 up from minimum.and then set the sensitivity to a position where you can raise and lower the coil a few inches off the ground without the detector sounding off.
If it sounds off no matter where the sensitivity is set then you will have to raise the coil above the ground enough to get stable operation. If you put the coil on the sand it will overload and detect nothing.

If you use the No Motion All Metal mode make sure disc is at zero and set the sensitivity to where you can raise and lower the coil a few inches above the sand whithout any change in the threshold. don't be affraid to lower the sensitivity to almost zero. A little bit of ground noise is ok and you will still hear rings and coins but if the detector continues to scream loud at you then you will have to settle for detecting other than salt beaches.

Some VLF detectors that can handle salt beaches:
Sovereign XS, Sov GT, Excalibur, BHID(Bounty Hunter ID), CZ 20, CZ 21, Safari, Any of the Explorer series, 1280X is so so in salt but usable, Stingray, Tiger Shark,

Of the above detectors I have a soft spot for the old SOV XS and the Excalibur, these detectors eat saltwater beaches for breakfast

There are several others but after them you have to start looking at Pulse Induction types.
