Fisher CZ7a

Hi, newbie at detecting here, had my first day out yesterday on my local beach(UK) with my Fisher CZ7a, when I got to the beach I forgot how to ground balance the machine!, so just detected anyway, still found some stuff, mostly junk, a 1 penny(my first coin) at about a good 6 inches down in wet sand, a couple of buttons(nothing special though), aluminium washer, electrical wire, plenty of Iron, and so on!.

Didn't dig a single ring pull, that was a surprise to me!.

Was in All Metal Mode, was happy with the way the machine was working, pin point is very good on this machine, wasn't so sure about when I switched to I-D mode as the LCD screen was hard to make sense of what with being in the UK.

Need to take the manual next time so I can remember how to ground balance properly. And need to learn the tones better, and when to dig and when not too!, I just dug everything and the beach I was on had a LOT of Iron.

Was a great time, definitely addicted and happy I took up this hobby.

Welcome from the Blue Mountains of northeastern Oregon!   Welcome  You're on the right track to take your manual with you to the field!  It just takes a lot of practice and getting to know the functions of your detector!  Good to know you are hooked already!  Good luck!                 Detecting
