Minelab Equinox 800 Metal Detector

Minelab Equinox 800
  • Multi frequency
  • Completely waterproof down to 10ft
  • Weighs 2 pounds

The Minelab Equinox 800 Metal Detector just may be the hottest and most popular metal detector to ever hit the market!

The Minelab Equinox is Minelab’s newest technology and it is proving itself to be a force in the metal detecting world! The Equinox 800 operates on a true multi frequency platform… which means it is very similar to the BBS and FBS technology! You also have the ability to run the Equinox 800 metal detector in a multi frequency mode and 5 other single frequency modes!

You cannot beat this metal detector for under a thousand dollars if your wanting an all around good metal detector for just about any situation!

The Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector is completely waterproof down to 10ft, only weighs 2 pounds, comes with wireless headphones, gets excellent depth, superior target separation, rechargeable batteries and is very simple to use!

This metal detector even operates amazingly in saltwater and the wet salt sand! Now… I know what your thinking … if this detector is so great then why buy a Minelab CTX 3030? I said this metal detector is the best all around hunting metal detector for under a thousand dollars. It does not offer you quite the features and target information that the CTX 3030 offers.

Minelab ETRAC Metal Detector

Minelab E-TRAC
  • picking 28 of the frequencies at a time
  • Superior target identification
  • Superior depth

The Minelab ETRAC Metal Detector is a work horse! This metal detector has been around for a while now and it can still hold its own with any metal detector on the market!

The ETRAC very well may be the best metal detector on the market for straight up performance in finding deep silver coins! The Minelab ETRAC metal detector operates on Minelab FBS technology and hunts on 1.5khz – 100khz frequencies picking 28 of them at a time and cycling through them simultaneously which results in superior target identification and depth!

The Minelab ETRAC is seriously deep on silver coins and excellent at just cherry picking silver coins out of parks, yards and school yards!

The ETRAC is not a bad Relic machine either if you have the right programs and settings! Like I said before this detector is a work horse and has proven itself for years! People are still buying this metal detector today!

One of the things I like the most about the ETRAC is you have a ton of aftermarket and Minelab coils that are designed for this metal detector! You have large coils for extreme depth and small coils for great target separation!

Some of the best Metal Detectorists I know use this machine and they have mastered it … whether it be hunting silver coins or hunting Civil War Relics!

The only down side to the Minelab ETRAC is it is not waterproof and it can get a little heavy by the end of a long day of detecting! But if you don’t need a waterproof metal detector then I would highly consider the ETRAC especially if your interested in finding silver coins!

XP Deus Metal Detector

XP Deus
  • light weight
  • wireless
  • ultimate Metal Detector for Relic Hunting

XP DEUS – If you can afford this detector – GET IT!!!!

This metal detector is great in iron infested areas, there is no metal detector that will touch the recovery speed of the XP Deus.

You think the F75’s , T2’s and AT Pro’s are fast, you can set the XP Deus’s reactivity on 3 which is the mid setting and it is still faster than any of these!!!!

Some people say it does not get good depth which honestly if your just running factory preset programs the majority of them are designed for iron infested areas so there for you will not get superior depth unless your in the relic program, but there are plenty of custom set ups that will make the XP Deus a deep seeking machine which I would be more than happy to share with you.

It is light weight, wireless, easy to travel with and with the options that XP are working on like the waterproof kit, downloadable upgrades and new coils the XP Deus Metal Detector will be the ultimate all around metal detector to meet all of your Treasure Hunting needs.

Once you buy the XP Deus Metal Detector you will not have to worry about trading it in for a new detector because all you have to do is download the newest version from your computer to the XP Deus remote and instantly you have a NEW Metal Detector, also the brains of the XP Deus is in its Coils, so if you have the stock coil and the 11 DD coil you basically have two separate metal detectors.

The XP Deus Metal Detector is basically 4 different Metal Detectors in 1. With the ability to switch from it 4 different frequencies you have the Ultimate Metal Detector for Relic Hunting, Coin & Jewelry Hunting, Gold Prospecting and Beach Hunting!

The XP Deus Metal Detector is one of the best over all metal detectors that you can buy!

Garrett AT MAX Metal Detector

Garrett AT MAX
  • very simple to use
  • waterproof down to 10ft
  • wireless headphones

Garrett AT MAX – This meta detector is all terrain and has a mid grade metal detector price tag.

This metal detector is very simple to use and can basically be a good turn on and go metal detector straight out of the box! This metal detector can also be used in salt water by notching down the ground balance which is a big plus for a VLF detector.

I personally don’t recommend this metal detector for the wet salt sand or shallow salt water but if its all you have or you only go the beach once a year then it will be fine but does lack in performance when compared to other detectors on the wet salt sand and shallow salt water.

This detector is basically a combination of what everyone loved on the AT Pro metal detector and AT Gold metal Detector. You get a back light, wireless headphones, all metal mode, AT Gold tones and threshold setting! This metal detector is completely waterproof down to 10ft and is very effective in fresh water rivers and lakes!

This metal detector has decent depth, discrimination, target separation with the small coils and a variety of large aftermarket coils to get some serious depth out of this metal detector and that makes this detector one of Treasure Mountains Top 5 Metal Detectors to have!

Teknetics T2 SE LTD

Teknetics T2
  • great detector for a beginner as well as a pro
  • super depth
  • designed to find large deep objects

Teknetics T2 SE LTD comes in at #5 and for one reason DEPTH!!!!

Out of the 20 years I have been detecting, I have never used a VLF detector that gets this kind of depth. Treasure Mountains infamous challenging test field which is known to make the top end detectors fail miserably (except for a few) the Teknetics T2 Se LTD passed with ease!!!!

I have a silver quarter BURIED at 12 inches and the T2 picked it up like it was 3-4 inches deep, so I raised the coil about another 3-4 inches off the ground (so know were talking about 15-16 inches BURIED and the T2 still picked it up!!!!!

Where the T2 really shines is in Relic Hunting and the reason for this is because Teknetics designed the software specifically for Relics by allowing the T2 to accept more iron targets that would normally be trash on other detectors readings and tones but comes in as good target to dig on the T2.

The T2 team wins the Grand National Relic Shootout every year and you can not go wrong with this detector whether your hunting Relics, Coins or Jewelry!
