Yes features are nice, in fact, I have posted numerous times that I wish the Fors Core would have had Iron Audio Volume. It doesn't. But I continue to use it and because of lack of features, I hear everything from Iron on up the scale, I do this for the simple fact, there are not too many other machines out there that will do in iron infested sites like a Fors Core. Features are nice, but I put performance first. And I extend that thought to the M6 and MXT Pro as well. They may not be feature-rich, but in their simplistic/performance way......they do work fine.

Its been a long day. They say a picture is worth 1000 words. So I randomly picked 7 pictures. So technically this is a long post 7000 words + what I actually typed smiling smiley This is possibly the longest post I have ever made...............

Pic # 1 The big brother of the M6, the MXT pro. 1891 Morgan Silver dollar

Pic #2 an M6 find, a 1903 barber half dollar

Pic #3 M6 find, Pheasant Pendent

Pic # 4, my most recent and last find of the year using the M6, an 1894 Barber Quarter, the token was found with the MXT. The two finds that made me realize it was a shame to throw the M6 and MXT in the closet not to be used again for almost 5 years sad smiley

Pic # 5 M6 finds, a neat ghost town key fob and 1899 Barber Quarter

Pic # 6 M6 find. 1900 barber quarter with excellent detail.

Pic #7 MXT Pro 1910 Barber Half and token

After all the posts and BS of finding a good ON THE FRINGE DETECTORalls you had to do was check your closet. LMFAO!!! Killing me smalls!! Well you found a good one but not a great one sounds like. Just my opinion. If the fors core is so good and is your favorite weapon of choice why not just put the stock 11x7" and be done?

I agree 100% however, I still favor a smaller coil like the 7" Detech or the Detech 4.5 x7" for the simple fact that a bit smaller coils will slow you down: ie..the bigger the coil the faster you try to cover an area. The smaller coils keep me in check, if you will, and I tend to do a slower methodical sweep speed vs, a larger coil. I'm perfectly happy swinging a 7" coil all day.
This is why I think ya should try a XP ORX/Deus with 9" coil. Most forgiving detector in the business when it comes to swing speed forgiveness. Yes you can swing them a bit faster a get away with it.

Funny how people easily forget these detectors are designed to find stuff in the ground more than sitting on the surface. That doesn't mean some aren't excellent at finding stuff on the surface. Im saying don't let a few surface test decide if a detector is great or not. A lot of machines don't do great on the surface tests so much but go out in the field with them and learn them and see for yourself what they can do. A good example would be the EQ, vanquish, orx/deus, T2, f75 and so many more. Sounds like can put your MXT and M6 on that list too. IDK thats how I make my decision if a machine is a keeper or not. Spend a decent amount of time and learn them then decide if its a keeper or by how it performs for me at my old sites, how it handles tuff ground. I challenge ya to buy yourself a high end detector and learn it. Bet the rest will be history.
