Finally getting the hang of ATX my pinpoint problems were i wasnt digging deep enough , still amazed how deep this detector goes. running simple settings sens 11-13 no disc on 1 ground balancing and checking freq . Anyways first couple of weeks i really hated this detector now with beaches sanded in its my go to detector over my ctx actually atx is becoming my favorite detector. Cant seem to run non motion mode alot of falsing i think its picking up the saltwater or maybe my sens is to high. Anybody using non motion mode and have any tips for it thanks jimmy

I have to lower sensitivity to 3 or 4 at some beaches, hardly ever getting above 8 or 9. I did not like the non-motion mode, so I seldom use it. More than likely the surf was causing too much noise. 99% use is under the salt water.

I just got to take my new ATX out yesterday for the first yime... Oh man is it a powerful and awesome machine. I dug up a bit of foil 20" down through highly mineralized red dirt silt and black sand using the DD - Holy Cow!!! I did get it on video and it will be on my upcoming upload to YouTube. As far as the non-motion mode... In my research and watching a ton of videos, I see it being most effectively used "in hole" and with the 8" Monocoil, mostly when nugget shooting.
