The Best Metal Detectors
The true secret is really to find a detector that you are comfortable with, thus you will be more likely to learn the machine and be able to use it proficiently.
Being comfortable means different things to each metal detector user. To some, best metal detectors indicate those of a certain brand like the more popular White's, Garrett, Tesoro and other manufacturers. To others, it is the physical feel and balance of a metal detector. It can also be a correlation to what the metal detector cost. Each of these will be explained below.
Probably the most recognized best metal detectors factor is how well the machine performs in the field, especially in terms of how deep it will detect. Typically, a comparison of major brands per price range will show little difference in capability. On occasion, I have found pronounced differences between two metal detectors of the same brand and model!
Some users, especially those that have been metal detecting for many years, classify the best metal detectors as those of a specific brand or brands. Like myself, I prefer some of the older models because I have had good luck with them in the past. This is all individual preference based on lengthy use and becoming familiar with certain machines. Each metal detector manufacturer uses their own circuit design, thus the audible and visual response to targets can vary between brands. This has been a factor in my best metal detectors decisions, especially when it comes to the tones emitted. Some brands just don't sound pleasing to my ears, and I would miss targets because of it.
An important factor in finding the best metal detectors is to find one that physically feels good in your hands. One with a good balance allows you to swing it all day long without getting tired. The metal detectors of today have come a long way in this aspect. Most of the newer detectors are balanced really well. If you find an older, heavier detector that you must use, consider converting it to a hip mount configuration so you can relieve the problem of swinging a heavy weight. I converted a White's Coinmaster 6000D Series 2 to hip mount and loved it! It was one of my best metal detectors for many years.
