    The ATP's are still doing great. I bought a Tesoro Vaquero. Sucker is deeper than you might want to dig something, not quite as deep as a PI machine but I have competed successfully against a few PI machines and done well. And they're built like tanks, hard to break. Though I'd get one while they were still available.

    I found one banner find with my Ace250 and #52 with a Nox. The best machine imo would be a combo of both machines. Low cost, limited adjustments and simple operation of the Ace with the speed-separation, blue tooth and waterproof of the Nox. But as others have stated research, location and good old fashioned luck are more important than equipment and user skill, again imo. Really, the best machine is probably my computer and Google...

    Or, Gare, flip that in reverse, and dig it all let God sort it out. When gold can come up at the same VDI # as a thick piece of aluminum, the VDI is useless. My Tesoro Cibola with no meter has STILL found my highest priced relic, a 1774 Gold Guinea from shipwreck. VDI's should be guides only. Doesn't matter what brand. You don't have to fully understand a machine or have hundreds of hours on it to get good stuff, you have to be over a good target and decide to dig it.

    And face it, some locations are just better than others. Remember, in the pre Civil War days, folks didn't have a lot of coinage to begin with, there was a severe shortage. So it where you find it.

    What i mean is for someone to get a detector they can use and know what the machine is telling them. Some machines maybe to complicated for some people to use. I know My c=CTX's and Etracs are kind of complicated and i would hate for a beginner to try and understand all the settings. New people have to be ABLE KNOW how to use there machines. and NOT so much as to whats in the ground but how the machine opperates

    Gare, I'm with you. I set my Deus on "idiot" mode, don't really mess with the settings and do very well. The Cibola doesn't really have any settings, and I do well with it also.

    Some of my best finds could have (almost) been made with a pie pan on a stick and a 9 volt battery. Just kidding, but when a Civil War plate is 6" deep, even around beer cans, you just dig it all.

    The best machine, is yours, learn it until it sings to you.....The first unit I had was a Garrett BFO, I had a heck of a time learning it, but when I had it mastered I did ok, not a deep seeker but it taught me to LISTEN...

    Alaskaseeker, I still know someone who uses an antique Nautilus machine! 1970's vintage or so.
