Beach hunting with a G2 ?- Florida/ Keys way

Hi Guys

Just wondering if any of you have ever used the G2 or Goldbug Pro on "island type" beach such as the ones you get in Florida or in the Keys?...or any tropical islands. I'm due to go to Mauritius soon and was wondering if it's worth bringing the G2 or if it will false. Beaches there are white sand

Thanks



Eurotek Pro
Teknetics G2
Nokta RS Pinpointer
Xpointer (amazing pinpointer!!)

Best finds:
1696 William 3rd x2
Silver six pences
Brooches and various UK relics

Still looking for a hoard of gold Staters...any ideas?

It'll probably deliver a fairly decent performance. You will probably have to ground balance manually. If in the dry stuff you don't hear any mineral to balance to, just set it to about 40, which will provide sensitivity to the broadest range of targets. In the wet stuff you'll have to do down to about zero.

Remember also that this is not a weatherproof machine, and salt air can corrode stuff. (I used to live 3 blocks from Ocean Beach in S.F. and even inside the house, everything but stainless steel would corrode.) So put a plastic bag over its head and secure it with a rubber band.
