So, what detectors do we own and use, and what do we use them for?

I think it would be fair to also include a description of the search coils we prefer on the detectors we have. Both the search coil size and search coil type.

There are many hobbyists who feel satisfied with only one or maybe two detectors. There are some of us who have a larger selection have units because we feel we have I want or need for them. To some observers, it might seem illogical for us to own more than one or two detectors, then there are those who wish they could have more but finances don't allow them to do so, or they might have a spouse who puts their foot down and limits what they have because they consider it excess or clutter.

Naturally, a few people will be envious of some of the models or search coils we use and wonder about them, and are curious of the performance results we enjoy.

Since I opened the door for this topic, let me step out and explain what I have, or soon will have, and why I like them and what I use them for. Here we go:


My dedicated, 'get serious' set-ups for dense iron Relic Hunting:

A Nokta FORS CoRe w/'OOR' DD, FORS Relic w/5" DD, XP ORX w/5X9½ DD and DeepTech Vista 'X" w/5.7 DD.


My 'general-purpose' team for urban sites and fringe-areas of old sites:

Nokta / Makro Simplex + w/5X9½ DD (out soon), Minelab Vanquish 540 w/5X8 DD, Tesoro's Bandido 2 microMAX (µMAX) and Silver Saber µMAX, both with 6" Concentric coils, and a White's XLT w/6½" Concentric coil.

My general purpose team of detectors are the ones I select from to travel in my vehicle on a daily basis, and when I set out for ghost towns or other very iron challenging sites, I add my 'get serious' team.

Now, let us hear what you use and why you use it.

I got the humor, Dan. Problem is that I feel about as aged as that old lady sitting there, holding a flag. N/T
