Question for Ziggy and Richard, and any others who have experience with any combination of the Vista machines listed.
I want a simple to use unit to carry along in the truck for opportunistic digs while out driving, and and 4x4'ing back country roads.
I would really appreciate your informed opinions on best Deeptech machine for mixed use, park hunting, bark chip playgrounds, forest/relic and general beep dig action.
Machine & coil combo recommendations please gentlemen.
Thanks, & HH,
Drew.

Allo there, a good general all rounder would be the Vista Smart +
It’s still great on finding small stuff but it’s not as twitchy as with the likes of the VG or the VGG, so for the areas you have mentioned this would be great, but it you wish for that little extra discrimination to eliminate foil then the sprite will give you that extra cover when your disc is past the 12 o’clock mark and with the coke button pressed, but either way these machines will be fine for your needs providing you don’t want to disc out more, but go too far with disc on any machines you’ll be losing nice items.

Too right Ziggy.
I will be using my original VG for the backwoods here, relics, and old gold mining areas and ghost town sites.
I currently have a number of machines that are suitable for manicured sites where one doesn't want to be digging numerous holes.
What I will be waiting and watching for is a new Deeptech North America Edition with an extended disc range suitable for parks, etc.
If they can put in a simple three tone audio ID, (low, medium, and high tones), and a true non-motion pinpoint, (no auto-tune!) so it can be used for sizing, and tracing a targets profile then I am in for sure, (and I expect I will have a lot of company).
Cheers,
Drew.

A Deep Tech with those tweeks for North America would certainly be looked at real hard.

Tesoro didn't listen to Keith Southerns valid suggestions regarding improving the Tejon that would turn it into a supreme machine, where are they now.........................

Americans are offering to boost DT's acceptance and boost customer base with a machine that fits their needs. Nokta/Makro saw the opportunity.

Here's DT's chance.

A big plus would be a smaller control box.

Like Drew said, 2-3 tone, non-motion pinpoint, with movable break point like the Gold, clear crisp definable audio and expanded disc range-up to or past US nickel would be a plus.



Nokta/Makro Anfibio-Multi, Makro Multi-Kruzer, and few others
Self built Mirage Pi's --- they work great in trashy areas!!

Yes Please!
(I want to be able knock out up to zinc for some sites, better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it)
You can always drop your disc, but you can't add to it.
JMHO.

Awesome news Ziggy.

Any machine with expanded discrimination Santa, these two, (expanded disc & concentric coils), go hand in hand for many sites.
Also adds versatility, hunt with DD, then hunt again with concentric.
Horses for courses right Ziggy.
Oh, and I have been good this year.:please:
