Detectors and such -

July 02, 2018 12:05PM avatar
I consider being able to have a 'few' detectors a bonus at the moment. For many years (decades) I was a 1 detector guy and had a detector that, in my opinion, performed best hunting the yards around old homes. I had a hunting partner and this is what we enjoyed doing. Lots of great road trips going to big and little places alike, knocking on doors, visiting with older people, talking about the old days. We had some wonderful experiences and made some great finds.

The last few years, I've tried to 'open up' to other venues and have necessarily added detector(s) more appropriate to the type of locations Monte, Gregg and yourself frequent. Plus, I've wanted to do some shallow water hunting so I've needed an appropriate detector for that. I added a Racer 2 last year and more recently a Fors CoRe and Equinox 800. I did have a very hard look at the Deus and have watched some of the forums in the UK and have seen the success Deus users are having there. I have no doubt the Deus is one of those all-around detectors (with some water hunting limitations). Accessory coils are prices out of my league though $$, so I decided on another route. I believe the Equinox 800 will prove to be one of these all purpose detectors as well, and without any water limitations. Still, Minelab has been slow in bringing out the accessory coils and while I am impressed with the performance of the 11" in sorting through trashy areas, I think the 6" coil will be the correct coil to select in these areas when and if it ever shows up.

My current core of detectors at the moment are my Etrac, 800, Racer 2 and CoRe and I think that between them I have the bases that I visit pretty well covered in a way I can afford. On occasion I do get some spousal pressure to keep things reasonable in the amount of $$ and time I 'invest' in detecting. If it ever comes down to having just 1 or perhaps 2 detectors, I'll deal with it. but for the moment I don't have to. grinning smiley I cross that bridge if I come to it.

To tell the truth, there are a few reasons why they aren't.

Yes, Rich, it was kind of a 'teaser' post.
