Most efficient Metal Detector?
What metal detectors have 100% of power, or close, going into it's detecting ability? I would guess one without all the lights , bells and whistles? hh

Well, Rapidroy, I will say this. ALL metal detector companies would and could put enough into the detecting aspect to get as deep a penetration as possible. But that is not always what has to be done to sell a product. The bells and whistles are EXTRA so one product would be more enticing than another. Bigger and better does not always equate to deeper and more sensitive. The best detector on the market is no good unless the "brain housing group" puts the bells and whistles to best use. TTC

Hmmm, I'd say that any detector, that will alert you in any fashion when over metal, is a winner

Thank you TerryC , sure wasnt trying to start brand war, hope people can take things with a grain of salt on a open forum?People dont like to be sold anything but they love 2 buy!I guess you could say brain housing groups if you included my dense noggin?HH 2all

Only a few detectors have the ability to use much peak to peak power. If you want a U.S. machine its the Nautilus DMC series (up to 44 volts), Golden Mask Power can manage 120 volts. Most detectors use six to eight volts.
Almost forgot to add that any detection system using a degree of discrimination on the primary, or in the case of most detectors, only search mode, just can't be efficient as discrimination still costs you depth as it always did. Nautilus thought about the problem and came up with a working solution years back which is why there's never been a need for an upgrade apart from improving weight/balance.

Any detector that will run in a true all metal mode will use all it's power for finding metal. It's when you start running power through discrimination circuits and all the bells and whistles is when you start missing targets. Depth and sensitivity to very small targets comes with true all metal. Tesoro machines come to mind.

You then have to define "true all metal" , most old-timers would say it has to be non motion and thats true for most older designs but if you try some newer detectors that have the choice of motion or non-motion, all metal motion often has the edge.

Thanks Swartzie and Brian alot of good info!I went through some of that with my first machine Tesoro compadre with E.D. 180 vs. E.D. 120, with the 180 being true all-metal.When I got my T-2 i E-mailed Teknetics wondering what the T-2 used 120 or 180 boy was that a mistake!lol but i think the T-2 is true all-metal also? Now I own a CZ-5 and 3d wich became my highest and lowest running khz all in one unit. HH rr7

Tesoro's are hard to beat (imo) as far as battery life...
