Decent Metal Detector in $200 - $300 range.
Looking to get a good metal detector in the $200 to $300 range. It would be used for general detecting on mostly dry fields, river banks, and occasionally on the beach around the Texas gulf area.
Any comments and suggestions would be really appreciated.

I started this year with a garrett ace 150. Cost @ $150. Its certainly not a top of the line...but im happy with it. It defintly finds metal. I've dug $90+ in clad and my specials are a 1893s barber dime- 1797 draped bust large cent-1852 3 cent piece-1864 indian head cent. Bunch of wheats. I did spend some money on garretts pro pointer which anyone will tell you is an invaluable tool. So for under 300 bucks ive had some fun and made a lil bit of money. Next year im gonna upgrade the coil but im still happy with the machine. No matter what you get you'll be hooked.

I got a Fisher F2, came with 2 coils and a Pin Pointer. I think I paid a little over 200 on amazon.

I have an X-70 with 2 coils for $330 in very good shape. PM me if interested and I'll explain payment. I don't want cash I need a part for my Jeep that you would order for me in trade for the X-70.
