Hello everyone. New member here and excited to find a community to share my passion with. I have been using entry level machines for a few years now mainly due to financial reasons, I can now afford to step up to better equipment. I am looking for a new machine in the $600-$1000 range and the more I research the more confused about what I want I get. I will be hunting primarily on the beachs and wet salty areas in SE North Carolina. I am hoping there are some users out there in the same area that might be able to fill me on machines they have had success with. Detectors I am looking at are Garrett at pro & max, minelab nox 600 & 800, fisher f75, Nokta legend, Garrett ace, vanquish 540. I don’t mind spending the money if it makes a difference but hate to drop a wad of money on a new machine that isn’t going to perform any better in the salty wet areas I tend to hunt. Really appreciate any advice from anyone. Thanks in advance.
