Harold said:Ole' Duggr! I remember not too long ago when you had a whole slew of vintage highly sought after detectors. Like Mark I's,Compass gold scanner Pro's and Xl-pros with the Tone MOD. Man they were sweet for sure!

Technically it is Vintage 1980's.
I have many older machines that still work great. Are you from S. Illinois?I still have my near mint original Red Mark I that I bought in the 80's. It still performs like new. My only drawback is since I added the easier to swing handle for the coil back in the 80's as well, I have to carry the machine in my left hand and have the wire in front of me. I can go all day swinging like that, but it is a hassle two handing my machine. But I still love it as I did when I first learned it. I can go behind other guys and find the goods they miss. I found my one and only silver dollar at a farm in Southern Illinois with it. I've tried many machines, but I still think the Teknetics Mark I is the best machine ever made and it can still out perform even alot of the new stuff. That's my opinion though. We all have our own. Happy dirt fishing everyone.
