Considering CS4PI

Post by Goldstar »

I'm pretty sure that buying the CS4PI is the right way to go but looking for that final nudge/assurance so to speak. I have the Garrett ACE 250 for land use and looking for a detector specifically designed for beach use. The plan is to have a 2 detector combination to cover all terrains.
I realise this detector uses Pulse Induction technology and does not have any discrimination, so digging for everything appears to be norm until you become more experienced apparently.
If anybody has bought one recently and can let me know how you are getting on with it, that would be very much appreciated.

Regards
GS

I have a sc4pi , and I can't fault it .I have found gold sliver and lots of coins , I've found a lot of junk as well .but that's just part of the fun , people say about it not having any discrimination and you have to dig every thing I don't mind digging , when you have a goods sand scoop it's half of battle , I have a ctx3030 but still love to take the sc4pi more on the beach ,but that's just me and my preference . You can pick a 4pi up cheep if you look about , and cscope customers service is second to none . Good luck with your decision , and health to swing

I have one too, and i really enjoy it. Even though you dig everything, you don't have as much trash in the wet sand as you do in the dry, so it is not too bad

Thanks Landuse
Although the 4PI does not have a discrimination function, is it possible to know whether an target is worth digging for based on the audio response you receive/gut feeling and experience.?
I guess digging for everything is the only sure way of finding out. :-)

I owned a CS4PI before I upgraded,?, to a whites dual field PI, both the same in my opinion on depth, but the CS4PI with good headphones has a better audio response and large iron has an echo ring to it at the end of the sweep, the CS4PI is defiantly a fantastic detector for the price.

Although I’ve not found any rings as yet, it does detect very well and to great depth. Managed a couple of hours today and found just 1p. It’s a good machine and still very pleased with it.
Just need to spend more time out on the beaches with it.

The CS4PI is working very well and I found the coins as per the attached image.
If the detected “sweep” is small (As in a blip) for example, it’s “usually” a small object.

Despite the CS4PI not having any discrimination function and yes I have dug up fishing weights, tent pegs ETC, it’s proved to be an excellent machine as designed for beach use.
Clearing the beach of such items is rewarding as well.

The depth of detection is very impressive those tiny changes in tone does warrant further investigation, albeit it could be another fishing weight or similar.

Looking back, I actually bought it in 2016 and haven’t used it that much really.
I do have other hobbies/sports that consumes most of my time during the summer months so I really need to allocate more time beach detecting.
