    Beginning Metal Detector

    Fisher F22
    Garrett ACE 300
    Tesoro Compadre
    Teknetics Eurotek Pro

    These are the 4 I have decided to consider...
    Any input relative to what one I should get is welcomed.

    I like the Fisher and Teknetics because of the readout Display.

    A Troy X2 will teach you more in 6 weeks than you could ever hope for.

    Well worth considering.

    All those you lister are good machines I recommend you watch some videos on each one to hear their tones and get an idea of the target ID displays and their capabilities. Larger coils normally equates to more depth thus I mainly use the 9"x11" DD coil. I use the kellyco site to compare the specifications of multiple machines, side by side. I know you can view 3 at a time, maybe 4 now??

    Fisher F22 if I got one it would have the DD coil
    Garrett 300 not a bad machine, I particularly don't care for the Garrett bell tones
    Tesoro Compadre a simple no frill machine. I prefer multiple tones and a target ID display thus I do not have one of these. This only has one tone... everything
    sounds the same

    Teknetics Eurotek Pro similar to the F22, I am not a concentric coil guy so I'd buy one with a DD coil

    You may like the garrett bell tones better than the standard tones on both the Teknetics and Fisher. Heck you may like one tone the best like the compadre has. You need to make the decision on which one fits your personal preferences the best, they are all comparable to each other as to their capabilities.


    Good Luck in whatever you choose

    I have been looking at the Simplex w/wireless for a carry in the car detector. I have see a few reviews and for about $339 dollars seems like a good deal.

    Good Luck in your search.
