    I have to say, I got pretty good at doing exactly that with a $99 machine. I liked the analog disc knob on my BH so much that upgrading to a Tesoro was an easy choice. I wonder how much people's first detectors influence their upgrade paths. Mine certainly did. I tried my mom's pushbutton Fishers and hated their controls and their sounds.

    Price doesn't always equate with performance, and even when it does the difference isn't always worth the price. To have your question answered properly, you should join a local club and talk to members about their machines and go on hunts with them to observe their machines in action. You should also look at comparison tests here and on other forums and on youtube (but take those with a grain of salt).
