    Looking for a New Detector...NEED HELP!!!!

    Ok, I have 400 bucks to spend on a detector...i am currently using an old whites coinmaster classic.. I have been online for a month now trying to make a decision... I have narrowed down to what I think may be the best to get... 1. Garrett ace 250pro, the minelab x-terra 30, the whites classic 5id, and the titan xd 3000 from First Texas..
    I have an old garrett vlf/tr model, and like the garrett name. The 250 looks to be a good detector but no ground balance. same with the minlab, the whites classic, well haven't heard much about it... and the titan.. I called a dealer that carries all of these brands and they reccommended the titan because of the gb, price, and warranty. I've seen some really good reviews on this detector... SO IF SOMEONE HAS THEIR 2ct's on these, especially the titan, please respond...thanks
    sorry left out that i am interested in coin hunting and some relics, live in south central oklahoma, some red clay. I just want a detector that will tell me when it is iron and foil instead of the same sounds that all the coins are making on my whites coinmaster...i'm hoping an visual id and newer electronics will fix that....

    Re: Looking for a New Detector...NEED HELP!!!!

    I have only spent two hours hunting with my T2 but I am liking it more and more everytime I use it. I have a 6000 Di Pro and a Fisher ID Excel. The T2 blows them away. My hearing is not all that good and I pick up the tone better with the T2. It also seperates junk that is laying right next to the good stuff.
    Just my opinion.

    Think USED DETECTOR. Lots of bargains out there. Ebay, classifieds on TN, Findmall, Treasure Depot. A lot of dealers have a used detector section.
    It just seems that you are an experienced detectorist and should be upgrading beyond the entry level detectors you listed.

    Just my 2 cents

    I'd add another to your list. You might look at the Tesoro Golden. Lifetime warranty, 4 tone I.D., notchable, etc. Price is just a bit over the $400 range.

    Stoney,, my wife saw where I had printed off the tesoro line, she also slapped the crap out of me because I laid the info next to the bed where my "wish" stuff usually goes. she said" I told you nothing over $400. ... I guess I'll have to smooze a little(alot) to get up over $400... .

    I'll repeat what George said.. USED DETECTOR!! You'll get twice the machine for half the price. I picked up a detector that would blow any of the ones you've got listed (and some high end detectors too) away for only $150. Just look at how many posts a seller has made and the quality. That should give you an idea as to whether you should send your hard earned cash. ..Willy.

    What part of central OK. Im in okc. You might consider the Vaquero by Tesoro its a very good machine in your price range with manual ground balance. Call me at 405-685-3130. Me and my dad own Wayne's Detector Sales in OKC. We carry both White's and Tesoro.

    I'll bet you can find a used Whites 6000 Xl Pro or XL Pro on Ebay for $400.00
    I got mine for $350.00 and it surpassed my air test of my older 5900 DI Pro Plus
    by a long shot.................Have had a chance to get it outside. (Ice & Snow)

    I ended up with the Tesoro Vaquero... I am really enjoying it and love how easy it is to ground balance and pinpoint... i don't even use the pinpoint button, but to tell what kind of metal it is by the sound.... The machine is well worth the money... thanks for all of the advice... Evan
