Rick, many years ago, you were the "go to guy" with Sovereign advice and I distinctly remember your advice helping me understand the Sovereign. Had to be over 20 years ago. Where does the time go!I have started in 1973 detecting and forced to slow down or quit detecting for health reasons, but I have tried many different detectors over the years. I like the whites MXT as it put the fun back in detecting, the Fisher F75 is my favorite Fisher. I used the Teknetics Mark 1 and once learned it I got some of the greatest finds in many worked out area. Along came Troy Shadows and found the X5 is the one I liked the best of the Troy Shadows and showed up several Explorers as I could ID better. On Minelab I like most of them and once I really learned the Minelab Sovereign XS I was told no way I was finding the coins in so many well worked area, so I took some of these people with me to show them what it could do. I used all the different Sovereign and for me the XS and the GT are my favorite. I used all the different Explorer and didnt do as well and found the E Trac worked better for me because I am very hard of hearing and tone change were hard to hear, as the Sovereign kept the last tone it seen so i went slower to hunt then do the Sovereign wiggle. I even went with CTX 3030, but didnt workout for me as there is too many controls to adjust or missadjust. I got one of the first Equinox 800 just before my health issue and used it less than 5 hours since I got it, but was learning it and the first find was a 1906 V nickle at around 10-11 inches deep in a well worked area that a good friend James(ND) had worked hard with his Explorers and missed it.
For me the Sovereign GT I have works the best for me as the tones and changing of them is easier to hear. I wish I could work with the Equinox 800 more and learn it, but unless my health gets better it just might have to go along with my Shadow X5, but think the Sovereign GT will have to stay when and if I can go out.
