    I use both the CZ and a dual field. Iíve had 2 PI Pros and overall think I liked the PI Pro over the dual field. The dual field tends to be front heavy even though I use a straight rod and have the electronics package mounted behind my elbow to help the balance. Iíd still vote for a PI Pro or similar for anyone doing only salt water and beaches. After some use you can get pretty crafty with the PI. Just gotta tune your brain to the machine. If itís there the PI will find it. The Bobby pins you take out this week wonít be there next time!

    These might be gone, but, the next crop will be in on your next search! Women are still using them. Add those to the new pallets being burned and you'll find areas almost unhuntable with a PI machine.

    If I were in your shoes, I'd buy the following with my $1,000:
    (Quoted prices are approximate but close)

    Equinox 600: $650 (15% discount if you're military or a vet)
    Stealth or Xtreme scoop: $200
    Carbon Fiber handle: $150.

    If you have any room left in the budget, a nice finds pouch: $35

    Of course you don't need the carbon fiber handle...a wood handle for much less would do which would leave you more money for that finds pouch and a nice pair of beach shoes.

    Just the view from my $1,000 foxhole...

    No argument there. That does become an issue. I usually just move and find another less pinned area. Other side of that is when it gets bad I switch to the CZ.

    I'd have to agree with the majority I've owned both and the PI is gone. Hearing the difference between targets is a long process with any detector. Hair pins are usually pretty shallow targets and can sound like much deeper coins. Having one that disciminates some of the trash makes it much more enjoyable. That taken with the lighter weight and shorter learning process make it an easy decision. You can always add the PI later on. A used CZ or Excal are excellent on the beach but lots of us who own both have gone to the Nox as the go to machine.
