CZ's and other personal favorites.

March 30, 2022 10:30AM avatar
I have owned, or borrowed in the case of some newer CZ's, almost all of them and, for whatever reason, the CZ5 was the one I favored. I have, just about forever, owned a lot of detectors and have them on hand and I hunted a LOT, but for some sites where I might have wanted a wee bit more depth although generally not needed for coins in the 6" to maybe 9" depth range, I grabbed my Sovereign XS 2a Pro or CZ5.

Most of the time, with most brands, a 'factory tuned' or a 'custom tuned' detector works fine and shouldn't get out-of-tune or calibration. So either my factory CZ3D or the Tom Tuned device should have worked okay, but they didn't.

Compared with the CZ5, and White's XLT, XL Pro, modified IDX Pro, non-display Tesoro, and even a Garrett GTAx 1350, the CZ3D's didn't find a US Nickel or respond well on one another detector found with a good audio as well as TID read-out.

I did seem to find mire trash with them than the CZ5, as well. Doesn't matter now, anyway, because ALL of those CZ models were heavier and less balanced and comfortable for me so I wouldn't get another CZ anyway.

I know I have and use some models others might not like, but if anyone enjoys a particular model or design style, then that is what we all strive for in a detector. Likeable and with performance that satisfies us. Glad you like what you have and wish you the best success on your next trip afield.
