Since we're pretty slow at my business today I'll answer this now while I have time.

Detectors in my current outfit:
Minelab GPX 4000
Tarsacci MDT 8000
XP Deus
Minelab Equinox 800
Makro Racer 2
Fisher F19
Nokta Makro Simplex
Whites XLT

What detectors I would consider that I don't currently own
Fisher F75/Teknetics T2
Garrett Apex
XP ORX
Minelab Vanquish 540
Minelab GPX 5000
Fisher Impilse AQ
Nokta Makro Anfibio

What I would select and Why
The Metal detector I would select is the Minelab GPX 5000 with the stock 11" DD coil and a 14" Coiltek DD coil. This might be an odd choice for some but I have a good reason I would select this particular metal detector. I usually attend Diggin in Virginia for 5 days in the fall and 5 days in the Spring. The ground is really hot there so VLF metal detectors don't do well. I also feel right at home using it for my relic sites around here in Utah. It's also a great salt water beach detector and I could use it hear at the Great Salt Lake or on my vacations in California. If I did go to a ghost town I would look for bottle dumps or privies to dig.

Yes, Rich, a good answer and for now will put another check in the Garrett Apex column.
