Video: Metal Detector Swinging Technique – Beginner’s Need to See!

On your first metal detecting outing, you may have found a few coins, nails and metal debris. You might not be excited, but there’s a reason why! Don’t get discouraged. Your swing technique really IS important! Here are 4 expert “Swing Technique” tips:

  1. Keep your search coil as close to the ground as possible. Swing parallel to the ground. The biggest mistake is swinging like a pendulum or an ark. You will miss targets this way.
  2. Swing slow. Each pass should be at least 2-4 seconds.
  3. Overlap swings to make sure you don’t miss valuable targets.
  4. To guarantee you are covering the most ground, go over the ground in the opposite direction in a grid like fashion with your detector.
