Hi Ivanll.
Sorry I was not able to answer earlier.
If I had to choose between the PIs that I have for salt beach detecting and wanted a good chance of  nailing some gold chains I would go for the SDC by a country mile. Second choice would be either the Sea Hunter or the Infinium, third is the sand Shark and last  the CS4PI. If I had an ATX it would be first choice. I am unsure of the TDI because I have never used one.
If I was looking for deep-ish large Aussie coin then any of those tectas will do the job in wet sand..
The Sea Hunter signals better on our one and two dollar coins than the Infinium although if you set the disc at approx 1 to 1.5 the tones for the Inf improve a bit...and also for sub g gold.
The CS4 is tragic for gold chains and struggles on an 22g 9k Albert chain.inc the t bar. I would hope that it is better on 18k or higher.

Minus the T bar. The Infinium can get this chain at 5+ inches no probs. The sea Hunter at 6 inches and the sand shark at 4.5 to 5 inches max. I could not get a recognisable response from the CS4PI on this chain above the background EMI. The SDC2300 can find it at 9.to 10 inches approx. in Max Normal mode and 8 inches in Max salt setting.

Chain is 38cm L

Just some thought.s

How do the CS4PI or your other PI's compare to the SDC 2300 on a wet beach. ?

Seen a beach video where the ATX was compared to the 2300 on a fine gold chain.

Hi Ivanll.
I have modified my previous post (that you quoted) in regard to the CS4. in case you are wondering why it does not match anymore.

I have never seen an SDC-2300 being used on a beach up this way, GPXs a few over the years, looks like all the talk about going deep with the "best" PI detectors is all wasted.
When I have time on hand I use PI's, when I want to get on with it and search as big an area as possible while it's low tide then it's VLF with tone info.

A mate here uses his SDC 2300 on our beaches and it's a killer , i have found it's pointless walking behind him with my detectors and that includes the White's surf p.i.

Yeah I agree Ivanll. I use the PIs in the wet sand and water and use the Gold Bug Pro, Sov, and even my XLT occasionally over the dry sand. The GB and sov handle the wet sand fine. The safari is another older detector that is great at the beach that can detect the previously mentioned 22g chain at 8 inches with a NEL 12.5 inch Tornado DD fitted.
My Gold Bug Pro with 5 x 10 SEF DD can respond to a 3.2g 18k chain at 6 inches. Disc at zero and gain at approx 75%. Gain at 50% = 4 inches (100mm)
Just because a detector is out of date does not mean that it cannot detect as well as the latest and greatest.
Yesterday I tried running the Sea Hunter in Discrete Elimination and Disc set to almost eliminate  steel bottle caps. I did not get many signals but what I did get was one and two dollar coins and one sil ring...An interesting exercise but I think I will stick to Dig em all and take an educated guess at what the TID displays & tones of the VLFs are telling me and if any doubt check it out.

Adrain SS , sorry mate I have not been in this section for a while & missed your question untill now . Adrain in all honesty I have not been back to the beach since i found that 20 cent piece ( a while now ) so I can not give any info sorry as it still has had no real use , 2 very quick hunts is it . This is why I have decided to sell the cscope as it is just sitting in the office , also I am planning on buying a etrac or equinox so have started a fund to get the $ up :) so if anyone is interested in a hardly used cscope ;) Gazza

No worries.
Good luck with the Equinox. Sounds like it will be a good one for coins n relics etc......and hopefully gold chains that seem to beat most metal detectors.
