So, what am I missing?

February 22, 2023 10:40AM
With going through the fight for my health, I have the thought that when I'm cured a new detector is in order. I've bounced around the need for this detector or that one. I've spent a ton of time watching utube videos on how this new detector performs compared to the other ones. But I haven't seen a detector hunting in the wild pulling so much more treasure that it would warrant spending 15K to upgrade my detector arsenal. With the exception of a few deep digs at the beaches, the targets I've watched being dug are well within the range of the detectors I use and similar to targets I've dug.

I can foresee the possibility of a beach detector in the mix in the future. The beaches are a bit far from me and I don't see the 6-hour drive being something I'll be doing often at this time, but maybe it is in the cards for the future. I hunt mostly inland or freshwater. The history where I live starts around 1800, but an hour east and it can go towards the 1600s. With all the finds I've made so far, it's hard for me to believe I'm actually walking over and missing a lot of targets even though I still run old technology machines.

So, I'm looking to you guys with the years of experience to show me or explain to me what I'm missing. How much better will my detecting experience be with the newest line of detectors and their up-dated tech? Am I actually walking over so many targets that a new $1500 detector is needed? or would a couple different coils serve just as well?
