Whites surfmaster pi
Since I done that to my surf master I have found much more gold at a good depth of 13 to 15 inches with a wedding band, but you probably get even more depth on lot heaver rings if you can get them out the wet sand, but give it a go see how you get on coz I reckon that the factory setting are just not set right & you cant go wrong the screw only turns half way & you can put it back to the same setting where it sits back with the red paint,over than that GREAT MACHINE FOR THE WET. Good luck happy hunting, wagg bournemouth UK

Surfmaster pi ,one excellent detector
You will dig a lot of junk costume jewelery and iron too but you have to if you want to find the good stuff. One tip if you don't want to dig a lot of bobby pins and nails is when Xing the target if it gives a double beep one direction and there is only a faint beep the other direction its trash.
This is one great detector and it will go in for a surfscanners upgrade this winter which will make it more sensitive. If you want to hunt wet salt water beaches and you want superior depth get a surfmaster P.I.

An EXCELLENT detector!
I buried a man's 14K gold "Eagle ring" 5 inches into the soil on the side of a hill, and also a women's silver ring far enough away from the gold ring so that there would be no cross-over detection. I used my Fisher cz-70, my Minelab Sovereign Elite Pro, my Compass Scanner R&C and the Surfmaster PI.
The Fisher and Compass both found the rings up to 4 inches off the ground over the targets while in all-metal, 4+5=9 inches.. The Minelab did 3 inches over it, 5+3=8 inches. 9 inches was the best any of them could do.
In discriminate it was a different story, the Minelab beat the Compass by one inch (8 inches total), and the Compass beat the Fisher by one inch (7 inches total). The Fisher read it 6 inches away from the coil (5+1=6). None of them did any better than 3 inches off the ground, or, 5+3 inches = 8 inches.
All three of the VLF's were set to cancel up to and including "nails". All tinfoil was accepted.
The White's Surfmaster gave a reading of 5 inches over the top of the two targets which roughly equates to 5+5 inches = 10 inches.
Clearly, the White's Surfmaster PI beat all the other three in depth of detection. There is another plus to this too, that being that the PI also discriminates tinfoil and certain other small metal objects without affecting detector depth. it acts like small tinfoil isn't even in the ground, and the Pulse machine also handled the ground MUCH better than did the other three detectors, including the Minelab. The Pulse was MUCH smoother, and as most people know, the halo effect after a coin has been in the ground for some time will give a PI an even BIGGER advantage over a VLF, or, multi-freq like the Minelab.
I recently tried a White's Surfmaster Pro 2, and found the (older) Surfmaster to be superior to the newer Pro 2, because it has at least some discrimination built right into it , even on the lowest setting. And incidentally, both the older and newer PI's got the same air-depth reading, 8 inches. PI's ALWAYS get more depth "in the ground".
I am more pleased with this machine than with any other machine White's has ever made, including the old (superior all-metal mode) 5000di, and the DFX and MXT. What a nice piece of machinery this is!

This really is a unit made BY beach hunters for beach hunters. Lightweight, very sturdy, very handy. Long battery life. Only one source of linkage so it's easy to prevent it (the square joint). Very "sure" on targets. Great coil coverage.
For snorkeling use the yellow weighted loop. I highly recommend the modification of the pulse delay from 25us to 15us made my surfscanners detectors. It gives more depth and enables to detect small gold items.
