2nd attempt with tdi, beach and land

Well, took the p.i to the beach for my 2nd session with it and turned up the usual rubbish, about 25 bits in total, most between the low and high water mark, best 2 bits if you can call them that were the ring and bracelet, tat!!
However I changed my route home and to my surprise they were re-drilling a pea field, nearly 100 acres in total We've had insufficient rain here on the east coast (UK) and they'd failed, now this is one of the fields I've bought a p.i for. It's produced 11 hammered silver since being ploughed last autumn and we know there's stuff there. Yes I dug a few iron bits, but I did have it set to accept all, however dug 3 non ferrous, 2 bits of lead and a broken buckle. I still have to work out the best way to use the p.i in this situation, my guess is quiet whispery signals only. Am back tomorrow when it's been rolled.

Well, that's proved some YouTube videos wrong, yes you can eliminate nails using the GB but anything under the surface still rings through. I've got a bagful of iron to prove it. May have to invest in a mono coil also, as have noticed that the dual coil fitted is only responsive under the tdi logo. Found 1 piece of non ferrous which was a bicycle tyre valve.

Wow nice. I have a whites tdi sl sitting here wanting to take it out. The last time I took it to the beach all I had was the original coil. What size coil do you have on yours ?
At the moment it's fitted with the 12" dual coil, however I think it may be faulty or not suitable for inland searching. Never tested it "in air" till today and it only seems sensitive under the tdi logo.
