    You will get about 100 different opinions.

    Honestly, you really need to research this one a bit.

    I'll vote the Tesoro Golden u-Max.

    Don't even worry about notching. Just run with discrimination low to get maximum depth and dig all the high tones.

    That simple.

    If you want nickels and "zincolns", dig the mid tones too, but you also start getting some garbage like pulltabs.

    Now only about 98 different opinions to go!

    Golden Umax, heck any one of the tesoro's scream when there's clad under the coil, makes it hard when primarily looking for gold.

    I also use the F70 and love it. In my soil with the 11DD coil it competes exceptionally well against the four digit $ machines. Which part of the country do you detect in?

    I dont use those other weapons but for a Whites in that price range the M6 is a coin killer with good depth too

    I used the Minelab 705 and I have to say that in hunting coins and relics it did very well .
    And with all the coils and frequency's with the coils it would run it made it very useful in just about any place you wanted to hunt.
    For being under 800 USD it was a very good machine . I was happy with it .
    Few things I love to do is , Metal Detecting for anything of the past!
    Making Detectors better ! Tuning and finding ways to upgrade Detector hardware , To make them work the Best that is possable !

    Don't underestimate the AT Pro... I bought one a few weeks ago as a back up to my E-Trac (for when it rains)... and here's 2 pics of a 1/2 hours at a local park. I ran it as hot as it would go (sensitivity all the way up) and thru some chatter it hit HARD on coins. 11 coins and one was a silver 1946 dime.

    Is it better than my E-Trac for coinshooting? heck no! BUT....

    I got a strong hit on the quarter (in the pic), dug a nice V-cut, flipped it back, put the Pro Pointer in, stirred around like some soup... NOTHING! started cussing about garrett, the hype, stupid pinpointing never center, garbage detectors, etc... ran the AT Pro back over the hole, STILL HIT!... dug down deeper and BANG! the quarter! I was pretty shocked! The Pro Pointer didn't pick it up cause I was in a 4" hole-or-so... and the quarter was about 10" ! ! ! I had to dig deeper for it to hit it!

    waterproof...waterproof...waterproof... over and over.... the AT Pro is actually a pretty darn good and deep machine! I think I have a great duo now! E-trac as my main, AT Pro as my back up, and my F2 as my loaner....

    I heard a lot of F70...F70...F70...

    I would consider the F70 too, even tho I never used/seen one. I own a Fisher F2 and think it is the best-bang-for-a-buck-and-then-some for a $200 detector and have actually found some great stuff with it! I also had a Teknetics T2, which is almost a cookie cutter F75, and it was VERY impressive, even more with the SEF 12x15" coil, but decided to keep the E-Trac instead of it. The F70 is the step below the F75 and above the F4 and F5, and I bet the F70 is amazing! it has to be!
