whats the best detector you ever had

In your hunting adventures what has been the best detector you ever had:):)
I have to say that all but my first detector was my favorite at some point. My first was a Predator III from KellyCo (a rebadged Garrett Treasure Ace 300) and all I can say is that it was a miserable machine to use. My next machine was the first run White's MXT followed by a Tesoro Compadre and then a White's Prizm 6T.

I’ve had a lot of good machines, so it’s hard to say. However, the most fun to use and least painful after hours on end, packed in a tiny backpack, was like having several machines wrapped into one…. XP Deus.

At the end of the day the i's have it! lol That's right! The V3i!
I love to learn,
and the White's Spectra V3i has an unspoken title: Instructor!
To my knowledge opposed to popular opinion it is the 'only' multi-freq., 'simultaneous' metal detector that reflects on the screen the 'simultaneous' freq? ? ?
My V3i has taught me a lot! The dominate freq. in scan. Likewise, in pinpoint the dominate freq. And in performing an (EMI) electromagnetic interference
indicates the dominate freq.
allowing me to change to another freq. circumventing the unpleasant noise, and shows the filters that can alter the EMI premised on the mineralization
in the ground. It has normalized some of the VDI. C/P from the manual. White’s has chosen to normalize them all to a standard VDI scale. Therefore, a US nickel detected with a 6kHz detector will have the same VDI as with a 15kHz detector. For historical reasons, the standard VDI scale is based on a 6.592kHz detector. Ante. I will never sell my V3i! It is a collectable! It is worth as much as it originally cost! If it is not worth as much today 'go buy one'! lol R O F L I have only known a handful that practiced patience and learned from the V3i and it has taught them quite well.

Garrett needs to update the V3I, make it light weight, water proof, & a easier to use interface, for the massas & re release it, as the Spectra v3i + or something similar.

Explorer XS and Sovereign GT.
Still own em. Still run em occasionally.
Getting heavy after recovering from both shoulders ripped up. Simplex becoming a more used detector because of injuries. Anxiously awaiting a Manticore.
For fun I still love my oll Garrett Master Hunter CX3 Power. Still finds good stuff. Hearing that voice is just Fun. Especially around kids on the beach.
