1. G2+ Easy to set up, ergonomics great, good separation, controllable in EMI It is new to me.
The G2, G2+ as well as Omega 8000 and 8500 all share that nice T2 grip design which is really comfortable and makes for great ergonomics. I agree about the separation ability of that 19 kHz model, and usually the EMI wasn't as bad as other models I tried at the same locations.

2. Omega 8000 light quick EMI nightmare at times I miss it.
From 3-'10 thru 8-'15 the Omega 8000 was my favorite urban Coin & Jewelry Hunting detector where I wanted Target ID. Very comfortable, and after the first month or so I had it I switched to the round 8" Concentric off a Delta. That made it an even better performing model for me than with the elliptical coil. I used the 5" DD in very dense litter, but otherwise the round 8" Concentric. Three years ago I picked up two Omega 8000's but switched to the round 7" Concentric coil, and for typical littered urban sites, that was by far my favorite coil on the Omega 8000. I let those Omega's go because I was thinning things down at the time as I had too many detectors. I missed them, but will state that they were a favorite C&J device .... that I mainly used away from challenging power sources because the EMI was very annoying. I had to use a lot of Sensitivity reduction to get them to calm down.

3 Patriot lots of settings and deepest of the lot. great with fisher 5 x10 and the Nels snake.
The F70 / Patriot is one of their models I haven't tried yet. Thought about it. But I usually had a T2 around so I was fine.

4. Gamma 6000 found more jewelry with it than the omega, it had that 8 inch CC coil that I should have used on the Omega in stead of trying the Sharp Shooter.
I had all of the Teknetics models ten years ago after I got my Omega and then started dealing in the brand. I found far more with my Omega (other than in tot-lots or ghost town / Relic Hunting sites) than I did the other models simply because I used it the most for Coin Hunting. Even more than my T2 in urban applications. The Gamma 6000 had the 8" coil, but I was already using it on my Omega. I preferred the ergonomics of the Omega, didn't like some adjustments on the Gamma, such as the Volume control, but wished the Omega was more EMI resistant like the Gamma was.

5. BH Landstar Used it for 7 years paid for itself every 1.5 years with clad and found lots of jewelry till it went dead. Found more gold jewelry than the top 4 detectors have all together. Of coarse it had that 8 inch cc coil. Lots more to find in the mid to late 90's.
I never owned one, but I used them at times since some friends had them or some who attended one of my seminars. Clunky-looking by today's standards, but for typical hobbyist Coin Hunting they worked fine in average sites. Glad to hear you enjoyed some success with yours.

We don't have the amount of lost coins to find these days in many places because too many people, young and old, don't get out and use our park and school playgrounds and sports fields like they used to. Sadly, that 'electronic era' struct after the '80s and slow-but-sure, there has been less loss to go look for. However, we never should give up hope because we have some very good detectors to use, and all we need to do is work them more patiently and finds some sites that have been overlooked.

Due to age and health limitations that have hampered my mobility, i have been transitioning back into more urban Coin & Jewelry Hunting this year, and that means I have been making adjustments in my detector group. I have been, and am, thinning out a lot of detectors as I trim the total number of devices I tote around or have on-hand in my den, and with the multi-model detector review I am working on, it looks like one Fisher model and one Teknetics model I recently purchased are going to be hanging around. It's now going to be their turn to help me find a lot of the left-overs out there.thumbs up

I'm surprised I don't see more adjusted prices on them.

More thinking to do.
