I've been looking for a beach detector and came across the CS4PI and this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEQZd08QZSs I am considering buying one but unsure if I should or not so would be great if any owners/previous owners could give me their opinion Smiley

I'm not sure if your new to detecting? On the beaches. This machine is deep but be prepared to dig iron as with all pulse machines, they outshine all other machines for deep Gold but it's whether you can put up with digging scrap. Also you need a good strong back..lol...my advice look for a Minelab Sovereign, Explorer etc,

                         Oh my! A CS4PI! A superb detector on both dry and wet saline beach sand. It detects the smallest of targets and it punches deep for them.

                          What else can I say? Well I used one for a couple of years on my regular beach and it had me digging for the olympics. I would say that it is best used on the low water line, in combination with a sturdy long handled sand scoop. I 'personally' would never have used it inland. It comes with one fixed coil, that is not interchangeable; in it's self, not a problem.

                         Will it be your only detector?

                        Just had a peep at your profile and I see that you have a couple of detectors and have been detecting for some time. You can probably pick up a CS4PI second hand, at a reasonable price. I swapped mine off for an air rifle, after all that digging did my back in! Wink

I did have one as others have said its a dig all machine that goes deep, I got fed up of digging lots and lots of scrap, but a good machine for the beach thou. I sold mine  [which was as new condition]  for 140 I think it was although I have seen people selling them for more. hope this helps you.

Appreciate the feedback Smiley I just ordered the newest model with the newer Elliptical 8" x 11" coil for 250 so this will bring me up to 3 detectors, hopefully my brother decides to come outside for once lol

I recall seeing them going for 30-50 quid but now they are 160 or so

I met these guys down Llansteffan when I was fishing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEA2PK3oXiI who were using one

What are they doing, they are throwing the rubbish away on the beach. Probably so that they can find it again the next time they go back. 🤡🤡🤡

                           I look forward to seeing a beach report from you.

                           When I first started using my CS4PI I was a bit disappointed on the depth at which I lost the test signals for my gent's gold wedding ring but upon slowly winding the right hand knob clockwise I was able to chase the ring down to 14"  +.   

                          Do some depth testing on known targets in the wet sand and see how you go.
