CS4PI. What a cracking machine.

Post by janner53 » Wed Sep 12, 2018 12:15 pm

I've got a new CScope CS4PI as an early Birthday/Retirement present. Living on the coast and love beach detecting I thought it fitting to get a proper beach detector. By 'proper beach detector' I mean a detector that was designed especially for beach detecting. I did buy a second hand CS4PI a few years ago for a short time but had a mishap with it so never really got to know it proper, but back then it looked promising. So after my little experience with this machine, and reading a lot of info here on this forum, also watching countless videos all over the net I felt pretty confident about using it before it arrived.

After 3 weeks of owning it I'm very happy. This detector is deep, very easy to use and finds stuff, right down to small hairgrips. I knew because of its no discrimination that I would be digging mostly junk finds, but hey, digging in sand is easy and pleasant, even small kids do it at the beach.... ok, I will agree it can be very hard work and frustrating if your beach is full of bits of iron or aluminium, but the thought of the next target signal being a tasty find keeps one going.

Below are pics of yesterdays outing, my 4th time out with my new CS4PI. The first pic consists of 36 coins totaling £12.17. Second row right at the bottom with a lighthouse showing is a Isle of Man 10p piece, keeping that one. The second pic shows all the junk finds I dug. The larger pieces of junk I threw in a bin everytime I went back to the car for a drink of tea.

Well done. ::g Beaches can be frustrating places but you will gradually clear out the more obvious junk. If you haven't already done so do start a scrap bucket for the brass, lead and copper as it soon builds up and actually has considerable value. :D

Good haul there, with all the typical beach finds.
Not used my CS4PI for 2 years but will be using it again for wet sand work this winter.
Just checked and luckily I took the batteries out.
Good luck and look forward to seeing further posts. ::g

Well done janner, nice haul of coins there. ::g

I use a Pi machine on the beach but get less coinage than you, folk are a bit tight here up North but they leave the same amount of junk.

Never had those tent pegs to deal with when I first started 29yrs ago and after clearing tonnes of scrap off of one beach it never seems to get any better but I am a Pi addict.

Some good replies there, many thanks ::g

What got me excited yesterday was a chat with a fellow detectorist who knew this beach well. He told me its well sanded up. So I'm thinking roll on the winter months and hopefully the gales will clear some of the sand off.

Hi Janner53 – You’ve done very well in a short space of time. Seeing what you have found has inspired me to get back to the beach very soon. Would have liked to have gone out today, but the weather is pretty awful today.

I am impressed! Very decent haul and ....probably more than that....what stamina! :)) We are planning to move back to the UK and are hoping to buy in Wales....so I will need something that will do the biz and my GMP is useless on the beach. So this machine may well fit the bill.
