ID:	1878273 I used the Orx on the beach and in the water this whole summer and made some great finds. While some say it’s not a dedicated beach machine and I don’t think XP’s intentions were to make it one but the Orx is awesome on the beach. My At pro is now my back up beach machine.

    No offense intended. However, that list is missing a few giants...

    Yeah, the fact that the Excalibur isn't even in the top 7 makes that list suspect... But not downing the Orx at all, glad you are enjoying it.

    I know those are supposed to be the “big dogs” of the beach but those big dogs are starting to become old dogs. Slow recovery, heavy, not upgradable (not the CTX),..too expensive when you can buy something cheaper just as good or better.

    I only have one on the list, but, I've used (and sold off) two of the others. An AT Max on the list for hunting a salt water beach?.....please.... The V3i isn't much better. The PI machines have a place, mainly on a beach without much iron junk, but, I'd put them farther down the list if you need discrimination.

    Did you negative ground balance your AT max in the salt water? You have to do more than just ground balance it, you have to negatively ground balance it in salt water and wet salt sand, just like the AT Pro, it’ll run way smoother.

    If you look a little deeper in to techmetalsresearch.com you will see Mr Simon is about making money by using Amazon and possibly others.... By the way it looks if you purchase something from his web pages he makes a profit. Which I suspect has greatly influenced his choices. "TechMetalsResearch.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associate Program and as an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases." Therefore the lists and recommendations provided I would take with a grain of salt.. Other then the Minelab Nox.

    Yep, i'm gonna come out and say it...that list sucks. No disrespect Irishgoldhound..

    Hi cudamark I see you and a couple of other guys have the new Fisher AQ, what are your thoughts and have you used it long enough to give an in depth analysis?

    I'm still playing with mine, so, the jury is still out. So far, not a big fan, but, I need to put in more hours before I decide if it's something I want to use or not. I've used a few PI machines before and didn't particularly care for them. I just spent too much time digging iron junk. I figured this would be better because it's supposed to have some discrimination, but, so far, I haven't found it to be reliable enough to ignore "bad" signals. Still, if it will find gold deeper than any other machine, that's pretty much what I bought it for. So far, I haven't found any good target that my other machines wouldn't have found. Deep iron, sure, it finds that junk 2 feet down, but, that's not what I'm looking for. The lower clevis just broke a few days ago, so, it's down at the moment until the new one arrives. Also, the factory battery life sucks. Fisher says it will get 3 1/2 hours on a charge, which is kinda pitiful this day and age, but, I knew that from the start and could live with it......if it actually got that. The problem is, I haven't even got 3 hours of use time yet, even though the battery has been cycled many times now. I did manage to get a custom long life battery for it, and it's sitting here waiting to go on it's maiden voyage as soon as the lower shaft gets here.

    I first bought the AT Max, and found it finicky at the beach. I then bought the Nox 800 and it performs extremely well in the surf.. then the ORX for no particular reason, works very well at the beach, but not as smooth and consistent as the Nox. The others, I know nothing, all I can say is on my limited experience with those three, the Nox wins, ORX second, and the AT Max stays in the trunk when I'm at the beach.
