My answer would have to be from the early years to now. I will start with the Whites 5900 and then go to the Whites XLT then to the Minelab Sovereign's also include the Excalibur.. As we move forward to the Troy X5. And now the E-Trac and the CTX 3030 to the Equinox 800. I think something import to mention is the type hunting I do is Beach, Relic and coins. I still own all of the above except the Sovereign and Excalibur. I don't use all of them much but I do own and believe in them. Sorry I even use the GPX 4800 for Relic hunting. One machine will not cover everything for me.

Classic. Discovery Electronics Treasure Baron Cointrax 2. I'll probably have and use one (or two) till I die.
Modern. Makro Multi Kruzer. A fantastic do-it all machine. At under $500 on the used market it's one of the best bargains out there.
And I agree with Simpsonslammer on the Compass X-80. One fine machine for its day. Can't say that I miss the weight or all those batteries though.

My current best machine is my Teknetics T2 Classic. However, my all time favorite machine was my Bounty Hunter Pioneer 505. I had more fun with the Pioneer 505. It was my first serious metal detector that actually found lots of coins and good finds and was able to discriminate the trash from the treasure.

Hands Down! Whites DFX, I got one used it about 3 years and got a Minelab Quattro. Thinking this must be better can't wait, sold it went back back to the DFX.
P.S.S. I did the same thing. saying the same thing 3 more times and again went back to the DFX. I just new how to push every bit of POWER out of it. Fantastic MACHINE!!!

I would have to go with my Troy X5. It was light, well balanced. For some it was a love it or hate it machine but I worked well with it. A nickle magnet.

And deeeep! Great machine.

E-Trac and lots of coils. If it doesn’t find it, it’s not there!
