Most helpful review for Fisher F-19

Good for relic and gold.
Great metal detector. Deep on relics, 19kHz. Also very sensitive to gold nuggets, and rejects hot rocks very well. Not the best on the beach. It also works well on GB and f75 coils. Good in hot ground conditions, versatile, and very durable. Locks onto targets very quickly. Deepest target was a 19 gram gold ring at 17". Picks up 1 grain of gold at 3-5" depending on ground conditions.

Most helpful review for Nautilus DMC-IIB

For Serious Relic or Coin Hunters Nothing is Better
Look how old the Nautilus technology is (About 20 years give or take a little). Boy they were and still are way ahead of their time. They still blow away the competition. There is absolutely no comparison in the depth department and the Nautilus is also more sensitive to smaller targets.
The circuitry of the DMC2's is more adjustable and relays more signal information to the user than any other detector. Also if you know how to use the Nautilus I believe it is just as good in iron as a Tesoro, especially if you use a 6 or 8 inch coil. (They have a great selection of coils - 6",8",10",&15") I own a T2 and several Tesoro's and they will get targets that my Nautilus misses but my Nautilus gets a lot more targets behind the T2 and Tejon.

If I had to have one detector it would be a Nautilus DMC 2B hands down. For the price Nautilus sells for they are by far the absolute best bargain in detectors out there (I see used ones often in the 300.00 range). I have dug buttons close to 20" in good sandy soil with the 2B using a 10" coil -- none of my other detectors have ever come close to that!! In my book NAUTILUS RULES!!
