    Top 5 metal detectors for 2018.

    I'm sure it's probably around but I haven't seen it....so since we have a bunch of new machines out I want you all to vote for the ones you think are the top five. Let's say no pi machines, and considering the following: price vs value, depth, separation, build quality, ease of use and also just being enjoyable to use. Can't wait to hear from you guys! Thanks!

    Honestly. If I knew about the Tek Patriot I would have bought it before my AT Max. Since I've only had two those are my picks.

    1) Teknetics Patriot
    2) Garrett AT Max

    Arrrghhh! Now you tell me! I splurged for the Nox800 and quite honestly, after about 60 hours, it is still a machine beyond my capability. I’ve been falling back on my AT Pro more and more frequently. Sadly, I have an incurable case of “Gottadigititis”. If the machine beeps, I gotta dig it. You never know when the machine mistakes a gold ring or a colonial coin for a pull tab or a square nail.

    I like all the answers but I’m surprised nobody even mentioned the goldbug pro. I think it’s still a great machine.

    Only manual ground balance, no back light, sucks in salt water, at 19kh, not a great tiny nugget machine or particularly deep. They tried to make it a good all around machine, but, it's only OK. The Nox (and others) will run circles around it at about the same price.
