i have not owned enough to say really. i am to the point use what ya got, they all find something! some of my best finds have been with low end detectors. what i could afford at the time and simple is easy to learn on.

and on that subject..not to hijack a thread..so Monte if this needs moving .. my friend learned on a Fisher 1235X. Los Banos made model.


SOOOO ...I am looking for a Fisher 1235 X Los Banos. He's a superfriend, had his "stolen" years ago. He sent it out of state to a guy who was making coil adaptors and something else like depth multipliers. , the guy agreed to do it for nominal if he could use his to set them up for Fishers. the guy never panned out and moved, never sent it back, had to be tracked down on line, finally an email that his son sold it at a yardsale. this was on the east coast and my net buddy friend of years lives on the west coast. the guy moved without a forwarding and ripped several folks off. no way to prosecute over a small amount from California to the east. the guy dropped out of sight too. i call it plain theft. this unit was my friends first ever unit and this guy was supposedly a TECH and was going to do wonderful stuff, check it for capacitors etc... yea and did not offer to replace it. dissappeared.

I would love to purchase a Fisher 1235X "Los Banos" unit. OR .... Monte. Kickindirt... guys and gals.. dont faint... i would trade a SimplEx for it. My SimplEx is stock simple no wireless phones or anything, and a slight smudge on the face by accident rub in my trunk against something, prob another unit. but works well, i just dont gel with it. i still have the box. its clean, not that many hours, have charging cord. My friend means a lot to me... even though we have never met in person we communicate weekly almost daily. for years we have..only non family that gets Christmas present lol... hope to meet up after my retirement and when the viruses calm down. that still could be 3 yrs lol on retirement.

The Los Banos were California made in Fisher labs Los Banos California. where i cannot replace his original, i might can find the same version. this would mean a lot to him. and me.... as this simple machine like Montes Bandido II µmax, a forever favorite of his. look around folks.. need to do a trade .

May the last hole i dig be my own, and will a fellow detectorist cover me up. And you can have the pulltab!

Monte 100 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
