    The Cz21 and Excal are both excellent salt water machines. I've had an Excal for 6 yrs and still running strong w no complaints. I do heavy surf and beach hunting on black sand beaches sometimes covered in rocks. - The best time for hunting after Winter weather removes the sand from the beaches revealing the underlayment and gold.

    Given your needs and budget, I'd say run with the AT Pro, get both a capable land and water hunting machine out of one machine with the ability to swap coil sizes. Should work fantastic in freshwater environments and offer you a lot of versatility.

    Wish I had $600... I'd get that AT Pro. Looks like hands down the best across land and water.

    On a side note... which unit were you with in Iraq?

    My next detector will be the garret AT pro for its water abilities and mid to high user capabilities and then from there will be the XP Duess

    I know it is over your price some, but well worth it.

    Thats way over my price LOL!! I have 2 PI machines so Im looking for a VLF. One that I can use on land and in water. unfortunately the closest beach is about 700 miles away. Unless you want to count the Great Salt Lake. I dont like fighting tiny little gnats and deer flies so I dont go there too often.

    Started with a Garrett. I think I've probably tried everything make and model from 1977, all the way to the up to the E-trac and GPX 4800. Nothing new as for me now, I am pretty much handicapped.

    The least expensive VLF water machine would be the AT Pro. It's good for fresh water, so, it won't be too good at the GSL. Use your PI detectors there. With a higher budget there are more and better choices, but, it's a decent all around machine.
