Now, a RE-organized Detector Outfit to prepare for 2020.

First, let me apologize for the AHRPS Forums down-time. I hope all of you took advantage of the time to get out detecting and find stuff to bring up on the Forums. I did, a little, but weather conditions hampered me doing it, so I have spent a lot of internet down-time evaluating all my detectors and a few others, using a couple of other Test Scenarios I put together and I've made a few more 'adjustments' in the detectors I am going to hang onto.

Health and mobility have limited my hunt time duration and covering some sites, and I also have had to trim some units that were heavier, for me, and just go as light as possible while maintaining good balance and comfort while not hindering in-the-field performance.

Looking at my Signature below you'll see where I stand today, and absent are a few models I'll be selling or trading and even one or two of those listed might still be thinned out before year's end. A lot of units? Yes, but they all work and have their strengths or they wouldn't be listed. Could I trim my Detector Outfit down? Yes, but there's no need to. However, if pressed, I could select from this list and just keep five top picks and have a 5-Unit Outfit, but it would be a little tough to let one or two go. Bet you can't guess what those 5 would be, either.thinking

We are going into Cabin Fever Season, at least many of us, so while not able to get out detecting, don't ignore your detectors. Make sure they are clean and in proper working order. If necessary, you might want to re-read the Owner's Manual for a memory refresher, or just gather an assortment of test samples and do some indoor air-tests to better learn that detector's audio responses, Tone ID, numeric VDI read-out, and strengths and weaknesses.

Prepare now for 2020 ... and hope it is a short-lived winter, too.

My old-time 'sentimental' models still work well.

Detector picks, site selection, older coins, and the 'fun-factor.'

There are several things needed to stay in the game in the metal detector world.
