Most helpful review for Makro RacerOutstanding detector
The Makro Racer is the third metal detector that I own and use. I am amazed by the quick response of this unit while working in trash. The depth of recovery is unlike any machine that I have hunted with. I'm finding coins at 18 to 20 inches and I know it will do even better. It's very easy to use. It's very sturdy build but very light weight so you can hunt all day.

Most helpful review for Tesoro Bandido II uMaxBandido II uMax
This is a good detector, and it's what I currently use. I've had it about 1 year, and bought it used on eBay. I did have a short in the coil, which Tesoro promptly serviced for me. This detector takes quite a bit of time and practice to get used to, as it's a single-tone discriminator. It's the only detector that I've found gold with, but you've gotta be willing to dig the pulltabs.
With all my detectors, the 4" coil is a must-have accessory, as the stock coil is only used at the beach. I also use the widescan coil, while expensive, can work great in the right conditions.
