Hey fellas...new to this forum, but frequent some of the others. Thought I'd check this one out. I have the Orx headed my way. Maybe get some ideas on some good settings for Civil War hunting? I hunt mostly in Central Va...soil conditions where I hunt is usually not so bad. Plenty of time to learn the detector for now until the fall of the year...my time to hunt. Thanks for any ideas and good luck hunting.

I have recently been using my Equinox 800 for saltwater hunting. The obvious settings, Beach 2, Iron off. Since I am forced to a slower swing, I drop recovery speed to about 2-3 (4-5 on beach).
I am forced to drop the sensitivity to 15 or below. I have noticed the waves will cause signals and dips in the sand too. This has become frustrating as I use a CTX-3030 and do not get nearly the false signals. Any suggestions to try?
I have been busy making quite a few finds recently. After more than a year with the Equinox, it continues to impress me with it's capabilities.
Some of my recent finds include some early 1630's Kettle Points and Turtle Effigy, Spanish Silver, KG's and more. I even have had it scuba diving. Unfortunately I wasn't impressed with the volume with the Grey Ghost headphones. I have a new pair of Tony Eisenhower headphones ready to try out with the hopes that the volume is better. We shall see.
