positive or negative ground balance in moist/wet salt sand?

What is everyone's thoughts about manually adjusting the ground balance on a gold bug pro in moist or wet salt sand at the beach? I was under the impression that simply using ground grab was the best idea, but then read a few posts where some folks were setting it to slightly positive? I have heard that with other detectors you can lose depth by going even slightly positive or negative of the correct ground balance...

Slightly positive makes the detector a little more sensitive to the smaller gold targets. In wet saltwater sand, I try to neutral balance the machine but may go slightly positive if it runs more stable there. I feel stability is the most important so you're actually hearing targets and not false signals or chatter.
