    totally agree with you on the sounds, they tell a story for sure. I’m like you, I can see it coming but I LOVE my safari and will probably always have it.

    Minelab will continue to produce a product as long as sales are high enough to support it. When a detector is discontinued it is because sales dropped to a point cost of producing and marketing it was no longer profitable.

    It's days may be numbered, but it's still a really good machine. I may have taken the battery's out mine, (using the 800), but I'll always keep it.

    I can't imagine what it would be like as a new detectorist whose first machine is a Safari...lol. I have never used one, almost bought one when transitioning from single band to FBS machines. I know I would not have been disappointed. Before my Etrac, I swung an Explorer SE and loved it. Finds bumped up unquestionably. But they are slow machines imho...and that takes special diligence when in the field...to let the machine work. I need to get more time with my Etrac though. Havent been out much at all this year with it.

    Itís such a unique machine. So underestimated. I couldnít think of a better machine in that price level (used). Iíve said this before - my salesperson told me that it will be the last machine I ever need, unless I wanted completely waterproof. He was right. And he could have sold me on the ctx or xp deus.

    it might have been a benefit in my case. When I turned it on it was the first time if ever swung ANY detector so all the sounds that it makes I just thought "ok, this is just what they do". Sure I dug a LOT of trash but that's part of learning the machine. And yes they are slow but being a beginner I was constantly reading "go low and slow" so its just how I learned. The weight of a Nox is pretty alluring I have to admit.

    There is a good reason why Safari is about $1,000 now a long time out go new is was $699 the reason they were selling out because of one video
