Beach hunting has been a crap shoot most of this past year. There have been a few better days that stand out and today was one of em! I planned on a LONG walk today (covered over 6 miles in about 5.5 hours!) and it was worth it. The winds and storm the night before moved some sand around and pushed out quite a few targets. The two heavy tungsten rings popped out first and then it was just clad, clad, clad for a while. I got a nice solid "9" on the Equinox 800 and it sounded great and looked even better. The second was just a few blocks further down. It too sounded great and rang up as an "8" on the Nox. The silver earring came later along with a junk ring and some other odds and ends. Dug a metric-crap-ton of clad today, over $11. I'm beat, time for a Bourbon or two! Good luck all!
