What has been your # 1 detector in years passed

My favorite beep and dig metal detector the Fisher 1235X light weight, fast response and good depth. Great value a very under priced detector. This may still be a good choice for a seeded hunt?

Toss up - I can't let my Compadre go (so light and simplistic) beep & dig - but years ago I spent many hours with the 6000/Di Pro (1st new in box detector I bought after used detectors) and the 6000 gave many nice finds.
I been down for years and now getting back in finally swung the Compadre just today I still like it but still kicking myself for giving the Vaquero & Tejon away.
I also had given my 6000 away years ago, replaced with a V3i and will soon have to re-learn it.
I'll be swinging the Compadre for awhile (medical reasons) + old & crunchy and the little cheap thing still works (just doesn't go deep but that's okay with me).
Enjoyed reading other's favorites.
 
List your favorite detector of all times :)
Well, at 85, I have to think. The first was a Compass and then a Whites. And from there was another Whites (XLt then DFX) which were really good. {remember) Dave Z who helped me and who could blow the "doors off of Minelabs!) And then the Tesoro which I fell in love with! Next was a Troy X5 That I fell in love with and still have with coils. All gave me happiness!

I have the X5 also and am really liking the X5 a lot, been trying to find the 5 inch coil for my X5 currently have the other three coils for the X5

Up until I started using these beep and digs my favorite detector I use and still own is the Xterra 705

I have all the coils including the 5 inch. The 10 inch I was privileged to run tests on for Troy.
I guess I just can't seem to sell the entire outfit although I will be honest and
admit I doubt I will hunt again.

I have had a few favorites. Minelab Excalibur 800 is my favorite metal detector. Great for hunting in the water . Just would like to find another 8 inch coil for it. Also the Minelab E-trac for land hunting. Fisher cz 6 was a nice machine too. Whites with the big foot coil was nice in it's day.
