    My all time favorite was the White's Eagle II that I bought in 1989 and used until 2014. I found tons of good things with it and it never had any repairs. I decided to treat myself to a new machine in 2014 and bought White's M6 and that machine has also found a ton of stuff. In October 2018 I won a Garrett AT Pro at a seeded hunt and have been using it on my hunts. So far I like it, but the jury is still out if I'll like it more than the White's machines.

    Like others who have detected for decades, my favorites have changed over the years. Each "upgrade" improved my quantity and quality of finds, and usually ergonomics and enjoyment of using it. My first machine, a cheap BFO unit, found me lots of silver and made me more money than my job back when I was a teenager making $1.65hr doing it. Once I got a real good machine years later (White's Eagle 2 SL90) I didn't think anything could do better than that, until I tried to hunt salt water beaches with it. Enter the Excalibur. What a difference! It opened up a whole new world of detecting and became my favorite for that venue. That was my first Minelab and got me thinking.....what kind of land machines do they have? Once I got the Etrac, it became my favorite and the Eagle stayed in the closet. Now with the Nox, with it's speed, light weight, and versatility, it's becoming my best friend. There were many other machines in between the ones I mentioned, but, these ones stick in my mind the most.
