    thinking about a new detector

    Hi all. I am thinking about buying a new detector. It's a toss up between the Explorer and a DFX. Anyone who uses either of these or both of these want to give me some pro's and con's of the two machines?
    Right now I think I am leaning towards the Explorer but I still am undecided.
    Any input would be great.

    I think that you should choose carefully consider where you will use this,
    I would read all the reviews go to http://metaldetectorreviews.net/
    also go to your local dealer put both in your hand check weight and balance, ask questions
    also see if your dealer will rent you one for the weekend

    I have the DFX and EXP II. And between the two, I would say get the CZ 3D. Actually the DFX and EXP II are both nice detectors, and it's hard to go wrong with either one.
    But just to throw a dark horse into the race. You might want to check out the CZ 3D as well. I got one a few months ago and the more I've used it the more I like it. In my opinion it's up there with the dfx and exp II. It has great depth and I think a unique tone ID that really helps to pick the good targets out of the junk. Plus it's a much quicker detector than the other two.
    But you better check it out soon before Bounty Hunter gets a hold of it. Then it'll probably be the R2 D2 and getting all of 3 inches of depth. HH

    I live in Pittsburgh Pa also. The dfx performs really well here in the soils. You can't go wrong with any of the 2. You just have to take alot of hrs to learn them.

    I love my 3d for bronze, but I would think about where you are hunting too...I am in the jungle a lot and small caves and holes, so I need something small and light!
