Hi all i just wanted to let anyone who may be interested know that after having a very unstable sov gt (now sold) i got an elite and it is 100% better, no falsing at all on the beach and after a good day out with a decent sovereign i can now see what all the fuss is about, im not saying the gt isn't as good as the elite im just saying mine wasn't.  there was someone else on here with the same problems as me.

so basically this thread is for anyone who wonders why their sov gt is not as good as people make them out to be,there must be a batch of lemons about.

Generally the problem with any version of the Sov is going to be with the coil rather than the machine and I can guarantee you 100% there is absolutely no difference in performance between the original Sov from 92 to the GT, people get used to and comfortable with one version and the way it works and therefore they say that's the best one Wink

The sovereign elite is A great detector but I got rid of mine because I was pi---ed of having to come of the beaches when it started to rain hard (did have A cover on it ) and was always worrying when I put it down on the beach to retrieve any items in case A wave covered it so I  got A White's Surf PI Dual Field for beaches superb detector  and A e trac for inland  Wink
