    I like my F75 ltd. Ive found alot with it. I still like my Pro. But all around my Deus will be my choice because it's lighter and smarter than me. Which doesn't take much. Thanks for the question.

    I know that on paper my Equinox 800 and XP Deus are superior to my Tesoro Lobo Super Traq but the LST found me so much gold. Tesoro made the discrimination on this machine so good that i vote for the Lobo Super Traq. I just sold today my Fisher Goldbug Pro that has the same frequency as the LST and has more bells and wistles but never gave me the results i have/had with the LST.

    I'm not really liking my nox 800.

    I like the form factor, light weight and recharge setup- but the function other than speed and finding small stuff blows IMO. I greatly prefer the stability and info that the CTX gives me.

    I started off with a BH Prospector that I picked up used for $25. I got used to working the analog knobs and not having VDI. After trying it my mom's push button Fisher, I bought my Vaquero. I've always been happy with it. I haven't experienced digging anything super deep. However, last time I hunted with my brother, I could hear a couple moderately deep targets that he couldn't with his $400ish First Texas machine (I forget exactly which one.. it's blue, haha.) With fresh batteries, I'm confident that I'm not missing anything that I could find without a much more expensive machine.
