Any Ideas?

First off I want to thank everyone that has replied. Didn't think it would generate this much attention. Overall, it seems to kinda come down between the XP offerings (ORX) and the Apex.

In all honesty, the ORX was my first thought before I even started this post. Its very lite, has a good mid-size coil and even if only hunting the fringe areas, should i encounter nasty areas it is still more than capable of handling that as well. And as Kickndirt said, the wireless headphones are very nice and loud. That has been one big disappointment for me, is the wireless headphones that Nokta/Makro puts out........for me I just quite can't hear them. I have to squint, so to speak" to try and hear them. If it's a windy day forget it.
As far as recharging everything, guess it's not that big of deal. If I forget to charge or it peters out during a hunt, I'll just go get the trusty Fors CoRe and keep hunting.
I only wish now, when Monte actually had one I would have played with it and tried it more. But.........

The Apex also has my attention. It meets the bill as far as what I really want to do with a lite machine for doing the open areas and fringe areas ( assuming they get a nice coil selection out for it) It offers plenty of features.

And then there are other machines to look at and consider such as the Vanquish and 1st Texas offerings. But as my detecting season is all but over, I am in no rush to make a decision yet. Lets see what coils come out for the Apex, maybe something new might come down the pike or ???

But again thanks for all the replies. I am going to re-read them all agian as mostly the first time was with my smart phone. It is much nicer to sit at the big computer moniter with a cup of coffee to read and reply to.

Gregg, if you decide on an XP ORX, I almost agree with Andrew's suggestion.
