Think it depends on budget but there is good machines out there all doing the same thing. Just get yourself something that's simple too use. I myself started with a garrett ace week after got a minelab Xs and now 4 and half years later I've a ace 150 and 250. MinelabXs. And  c scope. Plus an at pro which im selling for my buddy. A good starter at a reasonable price would be the garrett range for sure.  Wink

OK well there is no such thing as beginners machines only budget machines, metal detecting isn't rocket science and starting off on any machine has it's learning curve and so your choice is going to be driven by cost but if beach detecting is going to take a large part of your time then my stock answer is a second hand Minelab Sovereign (any version) as there is no better VLF beach machine, you should be able to pick one up under 350.

Val...... on that bad site of yours, if you get the opportunity try using P3 and dropping sensitivity down to 70 (yes, that low) it will make a huge difference, you are trying to drive in fog on high beam, try low beam, less is more sometimes.

Thanks for that advice Nigel. This is an old thread but I assume you're referring to the heavily mineralised fields I mentioned.
I do still occasionally get drawn back there, it's only 12 mins away, never find much and can't see why not. Maybe you've given me the answer.
70 - 85 is what Deus recommends for the beach and it works quit well. I'll give it a try.

Some people are discouraged to get metal detectors because they think that products are expensive. However, the good news is that prices of metal hunting devices have gone down, partly because of the increased competition from manufacturers. The price range of basic metal detectors can range from $50 to $300. Top of the line products, which are used by professionals, can be priced from $300 to $900. Whatever your budget, you can consider the company who made the device, included accessories, and of course the main features.

Did we ever hear what happened to Chef Geoff ?....
When he used to participate on this forum he was an absolute Guru with his vast amount of detecting knowledge and expertise.
He wisely advised me on many a topic... anyway,thanks GEOFF wherever you are..👍
