Wader Question...Mr. Bill?

Been reading along for the past several months about the claims of depth of the waders/divers. Seems to me either people tend to strech the truth or my wader may not be up to par. Average depth (in the ground) at the low minerlized beach I hunt I get a quarter about 7" nickles 5/6" dimes seem to do better at 8". Is this about normal from ya'lls experince?

I think it may be a combination of both mentioned things, and maybe a couple of other things. A little exaggeration is always present when people are excited about their finds, and there always the good possibility your Wader needs a tune up.

Well The beach I hunt is a white sand fresh water beach
most of the area is very low in minerals on this beach
worst thing is rusty nails. I hunt Sens at 8-9 and disc at 2-3 most of the time.
Thanks for the reply, will be sending it it soon

8 is what I would consider a bit low on sensitivity. 9 is so so, 10 is where I try to put it.
There is a big difference between #8 and #10 in sensitivity.
If your in a low mineralzation area, you should be able to run your sens. at #10.
Redo your coin test at that setting.
Later

yeah I too hunt at 8 in Galveston. Sometimes I can get away with 9 but not often. When I'm away from the beach though and in parks or other areas then 10 it is with no problems

I was at a shop today, the air test on a dime was about 6" with sensitivity mav, disc 0. is that about right for an air test?

NO there's something out of whack here

Like I just said in my post to Buddy, 9" to 10" on a dime.
Perhaps the batterys were near dead ? On a dime with 0 discrimination, and max. sensitivity should produce 9" anyway.

So what the signal for low batteries?
Crazy.

The first time my batteries were low it just kind of didn't"sound" right when I hit a target. Even a dime at 2-3 inches sounded far off and distant

With my diver, when the batteries are failing depth fades as Mr Bill says and on complete failure: (Ooops, I used cheap general 9 volts batteries from the dollar store)
....it would hit hard on the target initially then the signal would almost disappear on the second sweep.
