This is a very good article to read and goes some way to explaining why one persons opinion is as about as useful as a chocolate teapot. Wink

I don't think anyone can say which machine is best,ive seen people use top price machines and run round fields with them with there arm going like mad then deciding to get another detecter because they aint fnding much,i agree with the comment that if you know your machine that's half the battle won include a good productive site {sorry guys sometimes in places there is nothing to be found}and get in as many hours as you can.

None because all detector do 1 job is finding metals you can have a 5k machine and a land full of merde and nothing , or you can get a 250 00 machine and une land tres bueno  and you going  home with the best detector in the world Grin

Surely some detectors go deeper and are more accurate??? Different MHz,different discriminations ....

So I must disagree with the statement 'all detectors are the same!!!!!!'

kHz not mHz
Depth is more dependant on size of target in relation to mineralisation. On a heavy mineralised site all detectors are basically the same if looking for a cut half, in normal mineralised soil then the higher frequency is (on paper) better but large objects at depth then lower frequency machines are going to be the tool to use.
No one machine does it all not even the Deus or the Etrac, if you learn the technology and more importantly it's limitations you'll soon find that all the statements of "Deus is the best" or "Minelab is tops" just insults your intelligence. Wink

I personally believe its the person not the machine, I have an etrac and my bro has an ace 250 and he's found better coins than me. I do find more but it sometimes comes down to 'right place,right time!'

RelicRead I know what you mean about the Ace 250 its a great coin shooting machine I must say, with the ultimate coil..... Stever always surprises me when we go out coin shooting he hits coin after coin, from all around me, but taking my machine the tejon to a ploughed site is awesome, if I ever up graded to anther machine for my sites I don't think it would make any difference in finds, its more to do with the reason we get board and want change.
Anyway I just bought a Xp 4khz machine for pasture, last weekend for a little fun just to compare the differences between my 17khz machine, now I got one at each end of the scale Wink to see the benefits myself Roll Eyes

I ran the 4khz Advantis 2 over my test bed, If I remember right it only found 2-3 targets out of 6 targets, plus a very quick field test in ploughed soil, using a little button at two inches, the machine did not even flick, the Tejon was hitting it a couple of inches above the ground.......so to be honest it got sold and never used, for my type of hunting, I would miss to many finds using the 4khz Smiley

I agree - having both machines now. In this weather, I've been using the Deus (partly because I am trying to learn it) because I can hide the earphones under my hood and keep dry - however I find that I am digging much more rubbish (maybe because I am learning it) than I would the E-TRAC. Personally I'd still favour the E-TRAC in a park because I've got a much better idea of what I'm digging / looking for. I also probably favour the Deus on freshly ploughed land, but haven't had the opportunity to really see if it is 'better' yet

Of course the land makes a big difference. I don't tend to find much because the land is mostly pasture and it's been detected for 20 years - one of these days I'll pluck up courage to ask for some new land from someone - hopefully with lots of hammies on it Smiley
