Most helpful review for Headhunter Pulse

Headhunter Pulse
I recently purchased a pulse headhunter detector to use in the carribean on vacation to hunt for rings and coins. I live in colorado and won't be going on vacation for a couple of months.

I took the detector to a nearby park where they have sand around the playground equipment. I found a penny at 7 inches and a 3 inch long nail at 13 inches. I planted a ladies gold ring at 6 inches and received good tone, a man's gold wedding band at 10 inches and a nickel at 13 inches. These gave good hard repeatable tones, something you would definately dig.

I couldn't get good hard repeatable tones deeper than these depths. I was very impressed with this detector and the depths it gets. I have been detecting for about 14 years and have owned 8 other detectors.

I am posting this review because i couldn't find very much information on this machine before i purchased it.

Surf Master PI Pro
Call it bang for the buck. I've used this PI PRO two full seasons and I can't be more pleased. It goes deep doesn't everyone say that. I often scoop holes so deep that during the recovery I have to bounce on the scoop to get it to bite then step out and to the side of the hole and pull the scoop out. I'd be over my head otherwise.

I've recovered very small thin rings that were approx 1/2 dwt. a small white gold floating heart that was almost 2/3 dwt. The larger gold and platinum wasn't able to hide as well.

I use a Fisher shaft weight as I have the lighter coil, works well, minimum effort to keep it on the bottom. If you are going to hunt mostly in the water like me you should consider the weighted coil. Otherwise just get the shaft weight and light coil, if you like to hunt the wet sand too.

The PI PRO is not my first choice for dry sand (the big ashtray) as there is usually so much trash & foil I grab a VLF. But dry sand is a night hunt thing for me, while the sharks are feeding.
Battery life is fine, I keep track of my time and change them when I get to about 20 hours to avoid having to do it when I'm hunting and the PI is wet. You also should break down and clean the rods after each salt water hunt so they don't freeze.
One nice feature is being able to use the edge of the coil to pinpiont or detect crevices in the rocks.
You'll hear the SAT doing it's thing as you lower the coil beneath the surface then get it to the bottom where it gets smooth and does not false. It will pick up red bricks though and every piece of junk around. Hey, I've pulled gold, silver and old coins out of the ocean that were under iron.

I can buy any detector Aquastar, Excal etc. but the PI PRO performance price break is unbeatable IMHO. So with the cash saved over the other choices I bought a new CZ-20 too. So goes life with a PI PRO...dig it all leave the place cleaner than you found it. You can see some PI finds of mine at Whites web site under customer stories.
