Adding another hobby

New to metal detecting. In late April, I bought an X-Terra Pro from my local Sportsman's Warehouse and a Fisher F-Pulse from Amazon. So far, I've detected around baseball fields several times, and I go to a nearby beach daily. I'm finding plenty of pull tabs, other assorted junk metal and a bunch of clad coins. I'm learning as I go listening to the tones first and VDI second, but it's hard not to look at the screen when it sounds good. I will move up to an SMF detector eventually.

Edit: Yesterday, I bought a Vanquish 440 and a Pro-Find 35 off marketplace for $240. The lady bought them in April and took them to the beach one time. The tones and VDI are different, it'll be interesting. I've surface tested coins and took note of the differences. The pro-find reacts different than the F-Pulse.

Also, I've joined 4 MD forums, so you may see this post on the others. I am just gaining knowledge from a myriad of sources.
