What would you do....................

If you had a machine that works perfect in your area ............... But you prefer a different detector for comfort..and you just like the way it feels.

It's not as deep..it misses finds your other machine finds..Yet you still like it better.

Which machine would you use ??

Perfect working ??

Perfect feeling ??

Perfect working: ETRAC have to go slow and it's heavy.

Perfect feeling: Xterra 70 cover more ground and lighter. Still good depth.

I would use them both. Use the perfect feeling one on a spot for a while and then use the perfect working one for cleaning up the spot. HH jim tn

Elton: At 70 I think I am with oak, have no health or mobility problems, however after retiring I find that I am using the lighter weight detectors more often, depending on what I am hunting for. Enjoying using detectors that I have used very little that I have collected over the last 35 yrs., I now have time to learn them, some have been very surprising. I have 32 to choose from, hope to live long enough to learn them all HH Steve

Assuming that any of the options will do a reasonable job of detecting I opt for the one that's more fun. In my case that's the lighter one(s). Depth isn't everything all the time.
