Well, we have said it before, a secondhand DFX for 350 ish is about as good as you can get for the money for both land and beach, excellent machine, not as deep as the Sov as standard but superb, light and nicely balanced with a great display...  Sold mine to Merriman88 and it's bringing home the goods.  Probably should have kept it LOL !

Ok a bad review for the beach and youve answered my question about garrets.

See i said im no expert.

You are going to need to spend nearer 600 + to buy any detector that will give decent results on both wet and black sand and on fields.  

You need to decide how much of your time will be spent on what sort of ground. If you intend to do mostly beach detecting then buy a good beach detector .
If you intend to spend 75% of your time on fields then buy a good land detector with a reasonable beach performance,like the Garrett Ace 250 or Euroace . I would thoroughly recommend the garrett Ace 250 or Euroace at 250 or less . You'll  unlikely to do better for an all round lightweight value for money detector in my opinion.

Wet sand requires a specialist detector type which will not do well on both wet sand and earth unless you are prepared to spend a lot of money.

ps my advice would be to disregard recomendations based upon what people have found with which detector . The best detector in the world can miss stuff if there is nothing there to start with and plenty of hoards have been discovered without detectors so what does that prove ?

Whereabouts in the Country do you live ? if you put your location there is bound to be someone in your area that can take you out and let you have a go at their detector so you can make a more informed choice

Well bigger coil on the Eurorace more descrim but more expensive, to be honest they both do the same job i did have a ace 250 but like i said many times if you want to go on wet sand its not the machine you will need but you said you just started so a Ace 250 wll be a good start i find romans , gold ring , so the machine is working well but you will eventuallly want to upgrade your machine so start by the ace 250 and if you hooked with metal detecting get a bettter detector in the following year i have done that and its for the best , The ace 250 at 120.00 is a cracking price so dont wait to long . Good Luck  Wink .Nap
