    Look no further than this net. SEVERAL guys that post can advise you. Try Mike of Woodland Detectors, for one. TRY to buy local. The net's advertisers are also knowledgable, such as Kellyco. I have owned several, and still do. Since the choices to you are mindblowing, I will leave that choice to you. TTC

    The best type is just somebody's opinion and there is no best type. I recommend more specific questions that address particular metal tectin goals. Perhaps you are a fresh water beach hunter, and you want to dive with the machine. Or you may be a gold nugget shooter out in the wild hills somewhere. As far as web sites, do you mean for purchasing a metal detector, or for research? Its a tough topic to nail down.

    Buying a detector is a lot like taking a wife or husband. You have to find one that fits your needs and is able to put up with your quirks.

    Best talk to some experienced people who do your type of hunting.

    Ford or Chevy? Lots of choices, you can get a decent machine for shallow coin hunting for as little as $200+-. Give me a call or email if I can help you narrow your choices!

    As anyone will tell you, go with a major name brand and the type of detecting. For coins you will find Tesoro,Whites,Garett & minelab have great "Coin machines". Continue to google "youtube" and see the videos of many machines in action and their finds! You can take it from there, it is always not to go into something blind. Everybody has an oppinion and a favorite.
    Stick with TNET if any questions, many good members here will give you good input. Good luck friend.

    So true! That's why some folks poo poo a brand that others love. And, like a marriage, you have to work at it sometimes.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Be sure you get a popular name brand that has good customer service. (Some made out of the USA could possibly hold you up on customer service.) A brand that has a great popular track record with youtube videos of it in action so you can not just take oppinions but see for yourself production & at a fair cost. Got to cover your bases, this is your investment so be the judge so later you can enjoy your hobby than later wishing that you would have got one that was better or more suited for your type of use.(Or over spent when a lower cost MD preforms as good or better than a higher priced one you bought. (Take your time and buy smart, Just to help out), good luck friend.

    There are so many choices it's hard to make a decision, at least for me. I want to buy one next month. Good luck on your decision. Best regards. Paul
