hello my name is chris i am new to this hobby. i have been doing research to the point my brain is fried. i want to get the best detector for my needs but i am getting frustrated on which one. i have been looking at the minelab etrac but i am not to fond of the way the display is set up, I know you are supposed to listen to the sounds first but good visual setup is nice also. i like the multi freq of the minelab but i would like to buy an american made machine, with that said what would be a comparable whites machine if there is one. maybe neither one will work for me. I will have to have a detector that works good in very trashy areas, (i will be hunting old homesteads) the soil here is what i call hardpan or (clay) some sand and gravel also.
