Hello all. I have recently discovered an interest in detecting. The only experience I have is the detecter we used to find arrows in the grass when we missed the target. I need information on which detectors are reasonably simple to use and understand but won't cost a second mortgage. Please, no bickering about your personal preference. I respect your choice, Just help me make an intelligent one, Thank you!

Teknetics Omega or if you want to spend and get some more performance and flexibility, then the F75 LTD and yes, I've owned and used the MXT but I'd recommend either of the ones I mentioned over it.
Tbe F75 trumped the MXT every time, in pretty much every measure of a machine. I have NOT however used the MXT in good old Va though (although linda has a few times) in hot dirt, so cant comment on its effectiveness against the F75 in that dirt. All I can say is that HERE, ( sweet old Northern Pa dirt) I much prefer the Fisher. Streak!

DEEP, lightning recovery speed, EXCELLENT target separation, super light, and lasts 40 hours on 4 AA batteries. Very easy to use too.
I've detected 40 years, and used virtually everything on the planet, and you couldnt pry my F75 out of my cold dead hands. Streak!

Easy to use and deep enough.
