Fisher f22
Just got my new Fisher F22. Fantastic machine. It goes as deep as you would aspect and more. Thinking I would have some basic machine turned out to work wounders. Its easy to use and finds the target's with ease. I have seen reviews and knew what I was in for. But what the hell. I must have a defect machine as it goes deeper then I thought. 12incs so far and still getting to use it. This was on a Australian 10cent. Very Happy and cheap. Best price range out there and weatherproof. I can find all metals of simply pick what I want to find. Awesome.

Silver uMax -- Can't Beat It
I have been detecting for several years and have used several different detectors. My main interests are parks and swimming holes. However, I am rarely out in the open without a detector attached to my arm. The Tesoro Silver uMax gives crisp clear signals and responds to items that are quite deep in the ground.

The discrimination circuit is rock solid and can be used to ID targets. One of my favorite finds with the Silver uMax was a Canadian silver five cent piece dug from about 10 inches. It had holes drilled in the sides, so must have been part of a jewelry piece. To be honest, almost all my great finds have come from the Silver uMax. It has found gold and silver 'a plenty. It is easy to use.

When I am ready to detect, I turn one knob and start working. The detector performs very well in most conditions. The only place it gives me a little trouble is in highly mineralized areas. I tried using it at a swimming beach on the banks of the Columbia River, and it was erratic due to the black sand. If you need something that will give the same admirable performance as the Silver uMax, but can handle a wider variety of ground, you might try the Vaquero. I have used a Lobo a lot too, but am addicted to the lightweight ergonomic design of the uMax models. They are really a pleasure to use.

Other detectors I have owned or own:
Minelab Sovereign Elite (great, but heavy)
Minelab Excaliber (waterproof Sovereign)
Minelab xTerra 705 (love it, very versatile)
Minelab Musketeer (great, but heavy)
Minelab Explorer (FBS good, but not that good)
Tesoro Lobo Super Traq (a favorite)
Tesoro Diablo (no discrimination)
Tesoro Bandido (o.k.)
Tesoro Compadre (good for wife and kids)
White's MXT (good machine, but bulky)
White's Classic 5 (good machine, but bulky)
Fisher 1212X (wonderful detector)
Fisher Gold Bug (no discrimination)
Garret Ace 250 (not so great)
Garret GTA 350 (not so great)

Overall, Tesoro and Minelab are my favorite.
