    Need advice!!

    Hey hey,
    I'm going to get going this spring with my first metal detector,
    And my budget is about $600 to
    $800 and I need something that is water proof and can go pretty deep,
    On beaches,woods,old properties,
    Creeks ect, multi purpose.
    And must deliver great results too.
    So can anyone suggest a top5
    I can research?
    I'm willing to as high as $1000 if need be I guess lol
    I have so meany places I want to check, and so it has to be reliable.
    But not a crazy complicated detector lol

    I heard, kelly co/Phisher,Mind lab
    Are some great ones

    Any sound advice for this newbie
    Would be great!!

    If you plan to dive deeper water than 10 Ft.
    Used Minelab Xcal salt and freshwater....little heavy for meter...but will work great.
    Used Fisher CZ-21 same as meter
    Fisher 1280 freshwater some land ...little meter
    Detector Pro don`t know the model # meter
    Garrett AT Pro or Gold only to 10 Ft. some say good in salt ...some say it sucks...depends where you use it.
    salt or freshwater....make a difference.
    Save some money for the scoop.
