    #31 Not sure, too many machines listed, rattlesnake button

    #32 Equinox 800 or Makro Racer (mold)

    #33 AT Pro Confederate buckle

    #34 Xterra 705 Gold coin

    #35 XP Deus and a big shovel

    That's it for now. Quick, somebody go dig something magnificent!'


    Again, this just reflects what machines found the banners. Nothing more.

    cat-smokey, interesting thread. But there's other factors to take into account : The fact that XP Deus shows up a lot on the list, could simply be that a lot of hard-core relic guys have those, for awesome east coast site hunting. Thus, go figure, if you swing it enough over prime ground, and dig enough beeps, they'll of course eventually have chart-topper show & tells. But I'll bet that if you flooded those same fields with Ace 250's, a lot of those same targets would probably have been found. Because it might just be a function of "location location location".

    When I attended the GNRS, I noticed very few Whites, Fishers, or Garrets. There was predominantly Minelabs (of various shades/stripes) and the XP Deus. And when/if you DID bump into someone swinging an MXT or Ace or whatever, they tended to be more in the beginner caliber. Most of the hardcore guys you'd talk to (who had scores of LCs and CW finds in their home collections) tended to be swinging the Minelabs and Deus.

    Thus it could just be a question of demographics. If someone is more advanced/experienced, and if that caliber hunter tends to use only 1 of 4 or 5 different types of machines, then go figure: They'll show up on the banner list a lot. So it could just be a reflection of A) the user, and B) the sites. And not the machine itself so much.

    Then there are people that keep the banner finds to themselves.
    You never know what they are swinging. I have found numerous...what I’d consider “banner worthy” finds. They were found with 3 different brands/detectors, only one on the list so far. I expect there are far more “Banner Finds”’that never get shared than what you end up seeing.

    It is interesting. Smokey, thanks for taking the time to put that list together.

    Plus lots of folks who detect don't have any idea this website exists. So...it's just a list, not an indictment, or promotion for any machine. Just a list for comparison purposes. I just bought a less expensive machine in order to go to one specific site that needs that specific configuration to go after deep minie balls. There is no one size fits all machine. Just a list.

    Smokey, nice thread, just to add some general information, I like how you added every machine. This also brings to mind a needed profile up date as to what machines I continue to use as apposed to what I have used.
    Fun Thread!

    I need to add my new Tesoro to the list. But it's not here yet. Maybe tomorrow. Sucker goes very deep and almost as light weight as a Deus.

    So my vote for the best machine is the one that you know well and use often.
    BINGO!!!!

    Word up Tom!

    Also if I recall correct , a few years back the ATP was finding a-lot of Banners & great relics.
