In the end it boils down to most good targets being relatively shallow and not in a dense ferrous debris mix. Most any detector with the right coil, and good search coil presentation will find them. Best settings and using what you happen to enjoy can make the best general-purpose detector.

Beyond that, a more experienced detectorist might find certain benefits using a different make, model, coil for some 'specialty' type applications ... if they enjoy using them. I have an assortment of SF and SMF units that I happen to enjoy using so that makes them a desired unit, for me, for what I like to do. No bickering about my choices, just my opinion.
