Thoughts and questions..

I like the telescoping rod, red back light, and claims about "waterproof(er?)".

My main area of curiosity is with the increased notch segments and enhanced audio, how much more information will this give me on junk like bottlecaps and multiple items under the coil?

I've never paid too much attention to target id's in the iron range, concentrating more on "iron present or not". I do know that certain conditions can cause a desirable target to ring up in the iron range, at least initially. Makes me wonder if the bent rusty nails will stay iron with 19 minus segments or is the door open for more falsing?

I want my detector to be tough enough for a little bouncing around in the truck on those ghost town dirt roads so, the hardening of the shaft and coil ears is appealing.

All of that being said, my 800 has been hands down the most enjoyable machine I've owned and I'm in no hurry to walk away from it. If the 900 proves itself to be next level in actual performance over and above the 800, I'm a likely buyer.

Rich, I'm equally curious what does/doesn't jump out at you? I sort of see a repeat of the Etrac vs. 3030 happening here with the new Nox's and Manticore hitting the showroom at the same time. ML is gonna win big time in sales, hopefully we will too in quality.
