    How many detectors do you own and use of them

    Might be old questions, but thought I'd ask. How many detectors do you own? Do you own just one make of detector? When out detecting, do you take more than one detector? I own 3, a Garrette Freedom 3, 29 years old, the detector I cut my teeth own, AT Pro, my first serious detector, now getting a Equinox 800 this week. Time to spend some $$$. OOPS, forgot a couple, a $50 Radio Shack, it did OK. One I still wish I had. Back in the 60's I had a surplus green WW2 detector. Dug lots of minie balls, but it hated wet ground.

    I have the Deus Full with the WS-4's and the MI-6. Also have the Minelab Equinox 800. With the 800 I use the Garrett Z-Lynk Wireless System and the Garrett Pro-Pointer AT Z-Lynk and the Deus FX-02 wired backphones
    I hunt mainly parks and have a bit of a hearing problem and being able to hear my detector and pinpointer in my headphones is almost a must for me. My main detector is the Deus and I have only had the 800 for a couple of weeks and will have to put more hours of use on it before I can really comment on it.

    I own too many. Excal, Safari, Equinox, AT pro, Infinium (only one thats never tried to pay for itsself and the first on the sell list) and a Whites prism 4 (my first machine so beat up it hardly works). The Equinox is the only machine I didn't get used and they've all paid themselves off except the Equinox but she's close. It depends what a NJ state copper's worth (to me) and if one large stamped but suspect ring is actually gold. I only ever sell modern jewelry anyway but I like to know the ladies are earning their keep.
    Somehow the AT pro paid itsself off amazingly quickly in the first few outings and landed her fair share of gold rings (4+ ). She's taking on dust since I got the Equinox but the Equinox has been much less lucky for me. I just love the way it handles the salt water and its tones and behavior are like the Safari so its a natural choice. I think I was lucky with the AT pro because I was digging everything and two of the rings came in just like pennies and one was a pull tab signal. I wonder how many rings I've missed with the Equinox outfoxing myself skipping those 18-22 numbers when the pennies and pull tabs are too thick. Sorry to prattle on but you've made me realize a few things here.

    I currently have three detectors but recently had five. I have a White's m6 and I have a White's Treasuremaster that my girlfriend uses. A few weeks ago I won an AT Pro which I've used ever since getting it. After winning the pro I sold my White's TreasurePro and Fisher F2.

    Still own every last one that I got since the early eighties, wife owns all the ones she has ever had, 2 eldest kids one teen and one just under owns all theirs still and my five year old just started off with her first one, only one more kid to go.

    Only MD I do not keep is the pinpointers.

    The way I see it is no matter how old it is, if you take care of it then it is like any gun, fishing gear, ammo or bike, you have to keep it because you just never know if you will need it again.

    Guess it could be worse, some folks keep canned goods forever. LOL

    Currently? 13. Some are specialty ones, others are just a bit outdated and collecting dust. I guess I need to clean house! Want to buy some?

    Two.

    I keep one as a loaner and spare.

    I don't do a lot of buying and selling. The only other one I've ever owned was a Radio Shack kit I gave to my nephews to play with when they were toddlers.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Four Excalibur water machines, and enough parts to build 4 more. I find this hobby to be very addictive...

    Effort is Important, But knowing where, can make all the difference!

    When I got the Minelab Equinox 600, I sold five machines, keeping only my Tesoro Mojave (as my car trunk machine), and my GPZ7000 for gold prospecting.
