Great response Monte,
I have what I consider modern, and some “current state of the art”, detectors, and some past masters units which stirred up some enthusiasm in their day.
As you frequently point out this hobby should be first and foremost “Fun”. As a relative newcomer, or maybe sophomore Detectorist ,(having started in around the mid to late 90’s ) I have a fascination with the hardware so to speak. Using older machines to hunt my regular sites is just that, fun!
When I see a unit that intrigues me from past manufacturers or just older machines that were well regarded in their day, for sale at reasonable prices and in good to excellent condition I may be compelled to snap them up. (I’m not in Sven’s league mind you)winking smiley.
It is very instructive to take these older units out and put in some hours behind them, It takes one back to hunting as it was.
I found the XL Pro to be a very good performer on Canadian coins for instance. My first foray with a Bill Crabtree modified Classic 3 SL produced silver in my neighborhood park.smiling smiley
Maybe just call the forum Past production detectors to allow a broad brush approach and include people’s favorites that may have ceased being built anytime outside current manufacture.
