What type of hunting are you doing? I've been using two tone, iron volume low, modulation on in thick nails with heavy can slaw. Listen to the audio then double check with the tid when you hear something good as the numbers are fairly accurate. Even when just coin hunting in a park I find myself using the two tone more often than not with the mxs. I just notch out anything that's not a coin and use the reject volume so I can still hear hits that might be rings or jewelry but don't get overwhelmed by them in heavy trash. HH!

Expect some heavy iron on the beaches of Galveston, lived and detected there. I think from all the storms trash has been buried there. I was there to work when hurricane Ike went thru there

On many beaches, soft spot in the sand will fill with more salt water compared to the surrounding sand. With all single frequency models, these soft sand salt water pockets like to respond like a metal target. However, when you go to the pinpoint mode, the signal becomes very large / wide, and very soft sounding, nothing like a real metal target. Huge, wide / soft pinpoints, ignore and move on. That will save you a lot of time and frustration!

How would the 950 concentric coil do in this same area ? ?. . . . . . anyone tried a 950 concentric on the MX Sport on a wet salt beach.?

Many do prefer the 9.5 concentric search coil on the MX Sport for East Coast USA salt beaches. West coast USA high mineral black sand, the "DD" loops tend to work better.
