I concur with regard to experience. However, it brings this thought to mind.

Monte,

I think the anfibio is a great choice actually. The only reason I give pause is having to start from scratch with the learning process. I have hundreds and hundreds of hours into my 800 the last 2 1/2 years, in many different venues with loads of finds. It would seem a shame to toss that aside without good cause as if there was no value there.

Rich,

A very good point and well understood. I think that's one reason why I still have a few of my all-time favorite detectors in my arsenal. Because they have proven themselves to me, and I know them well. So I'm really not in a hurry change completely. I have others that I also like, but I still have the proven reliable units that I don't want to part with. I'm ust learning some of the newer devices to see if they are a 'keeper' or one to 'part with.'

Of course, this brings me to ask a new question that I'll post in a while and then we'll see what kind of replies we get. Since it seems kind of quiet on everybody's forums, we'll just get the think-tank going a little bit here on this one.

The one thought your post brings to mind is the simple fact that many of us already had a lot of experience, meaning many more years in some cases, with the models we had before those we now consider a Top Choice. So just because we have a model now that seems to fit the ticket for many applications, a lot of the detectors we had before also did. And yet we changed from them.

So in this case, with a question I asked, if you were all of a sudden void of every detector you have, and you know what the Equinox 800 can do, if you were shopping and considering a new detector, I think the Anfibio Multi unit could well be one model you would check out before making that final purchase decision.
