Like others have is location location location.
My experience with the following units is just experience.

If you are ONLY hunting old Tesoro Stingray 2 or Tiger Shark just cannot be beat. But get it near salt water and it's a worthless stick.
Excal : gets great depth, awesome in salt water. Have had coil wire issues/failures.
CTX : put the 6” coil on this and it is awesome! Handles salt water with no issues and very good depth. But take it out of the water and it goes from water neutral weight to a HEAVY unit on land.
Equinox 800 : I truly like this unit, handles salt water easily, good tones, very good depth. Don’t like the small window of signal numbers...extremely rare to get a number above 30. So all numbers are concentrated.
CZ-21 & CZ-20: actually my “go-to” water units. Easy to use....3 tones. Good depth. Handles salt water great. Extremely lightweight when hip mounted and have had mine for 15 years with not one failure. Built like a tank.
Have never used a Whites or Garrett water units.

Good Post Kieth !N/T

I have an Equinox 800 and love it! I had a Fisher CZ20 but it died on me. I got the 15” coil but so far haven’t had luck with it. I switched back to the stock coil. I wish the NOX went deeper than three meters. I don’t scuba but I freedive and Would like to go deeper. I’m thinking of picking up an older Tesoro water machine for going deeper.
