What are your 'Top Five' favorite models?

September 05, 2021 06:58PM avatar
To clarify, I am asking about the 'Top Five' favorite models that you have owned and used for each manufacturer. If you haven't owned and used them, then they couldn't be a 'favorite'. Also, the specific model could be old, middle aged or current. It might have had a brief life before the company discontinued that model, or they might have been sold in big numbers over a length of time, or they could be current manufacture and maybe not even on the market very long.

I am just curious which models, per manufacturer, make YOUR 'Top Five' 'favorites'. You can list them in the order from #1 to #5 .... IF there have been five of them. Maybe a detector company only made one or two or three that you liked, and if so, just list them in order, but no more than five per manufacturer. That came up in a discussion I had so I thought I'd throw it out to everyone out of curiosity.

To be fair, I guess I ought to start off by listing my 'favorites':

Compass:
• Challenger X-100
• 'Custom' Liberty 150 (made or me by co-founder and engineer Henry Gorgas, in '88)
• Gold Scanner Pro
• Yukon 94 Auto
• Coin Hustler

Fisher:
• Orion 121
• F-44
• CZ-5

Garrett:
• Apex
• American S2 TR
• Ground Hog
• Scorpion Gold Stinger
• Master Hunter TR-Disc.

Gold Mountain:
• VIP Deluxe

Gold Mountain Technologies:
• GMT 1650 ... also under the name GMT Cobra
• King Cobra

Makro:
• Racer 2
• Gold Racer

Minelab:
• Sovereign Xs2a Pro
• Explorer II

Nokta:
• FORS CoRe
• FORS Relic

Nokta / Makro:
• Simplex +
• Anfibio Multi

Teknetics:
• T2+
• Omega 80000 Ver. 4

Tesoro:
• Bandido II µMAX
• Silver Sabre µMAX
• Pantera
• Bandido II
• Inca

White's:
• XLT
• 6000 Pro Xl changed to XL Pro
• MX-7
• MXT Pro
• IDX Pro (with modifications)

XP:
• ORX


I've owned many other models and other brands, but those are the ones that come to mind right now if I selected my top models, no more than five, from various manufacturers. It was a little tough with Garrett, Tesoro and White's, but doable.

How about you and your picks? Curiosity gets the best of us sometimes. confused smiley

Only 1 from Nokta, 1 from Tesoro, 2 from White's and 1 from XP?

Monte 391 September 06, 2021 02:12PM

If I only was allowed 5 detectors...those that I picked are the most fun to use and would be the last to be sold! I hope that is more clearly stated for all readers. N/T
