What is the best metal detector for you?

If you are on this page, you are probably new to metal detecting and most likely overwhelmed with all the different detector choices, different options and pricing. You want to buy the best detector that suits your needs and budget.

Before we continue, keep in mind that "best" is not always "the newest" or "the most expensive." Don't be put off by the fact that a detector was made 10 years ago, because some of the older models can do the same thing for a lot less money and are made to last a lifetime.
Of course, if you're buying a gift for a person you love, you probably want to go with a brand new shiny detector.

So, define "your best" and the more options you choose, the shorter the list will become.
