Rich, a very nice post to get folks thinking.

This past few years I have been making adjustments. Kind of a usual thing, but last year and this year I have had to make a lot of decisions on where I'm still able to hunt and changes in my Detector Outfit as well. I have thinned out a lot of detectors over the past 24 months, but I have added a few along the way. Some of them I will still thin out, but a few I am definitely keeping because they provide the very light-weight and comfortable balance I need.

Staying in my Outfit, as of this evening, are a Fisher F-44, Nokta / Makro Racer 2, FORS Relic and Simplex +, Teknetics T2+, Tesoro Bandido II µMAX and Silver Sabre µMAX, modified White's IDX Pro and XP ORX That's nine units but I still might thin one or two of them, or perhaps let a duplicate go. (I do have a duplicate of 5 of these models.)

I added the ORX w/5X9½ DD HF coil this year as well as the modified IDX Pro w/6½" Concentric coil. Also, as of tonight, I have at least 6 excellent new or as-new units I am selling.

I've watched almost as many You Tube videos this past couple of years than I did western movies in the '50s and '60s, or so it feels, and I've tried to decide if there is anything out there that interests me enough to invest. Right now, I can only think of two possible models. Don't ask, but if I make a purchase I am sure you'll read about it.

For now, due to health issues and impaired mobility, I am realizing I have to drastically limit any Relic Hunting to easy-access sites that are mainly level and not too brushy (aka tripable), and make a more pronounced change back to doing more easy-access urban Coin Hunting.

It will be interesting to see what makes and models have grabbed the interest of others.
