depends on the sand.
a really slow sweep speed, lower sensitivity and higher discrimination will make a few beaches double. Some down in the SW has to be very even dampness and very flat.
But the vast majority it a big fat no. Sorry.

I used an ACE just over a year ago, and from memory I am afraid that it was 'not the best' for deep wet sand. However, on saying that, I did find Victorian silver, military stuff, and pre decimal coins in areas where the sand was not deep. I was most successful on areas of the beach where old items could become trapped, e.g. very shallow rock pools, shingly areas, etc.
I would however like to add that I think the ACE is a very good entry level machine, and I got some nice finds from it (mainly inland, and on dry sand.)
