WHICH MINELAB ???
« on: November 05, 2006, 01:15:38 PM »
I'm a new member to this forum, so hello everyone.
I'm thinking of buying a new Minelab, but cannot decide which to go for. I have studdied for on the Explorer, Quattro and the XT70, all o0f which are super machines.
My main search areas would be the beach "wet sand" but also a bit of inland, so I need an all rounder with maximum depth.
I have detected before, many years ago but had to stop through ill health. I used a CZ6 and a Goldscan2, sadly the CZ6 went a number of years ago but I would not part with the GS2, still a brilliant machine although it needs new batteries. 
So, any advice would be most welcome.
Thanks,
Mal

Hello Mal, Welcome to the forum!

You probably can't go far wrong with any of the Minelabs, after all, they are the brand that all the other manufacturers are trying (and often failing) to keep up with. The Explorer II was king, but Minelab recently released the Explorer SE, which I haven't heard much about yet.

Stick with the Goldscan for the wet sand, I doubt even the mighty (and very heavy) Explorer 2 could keep up with it.

Have you thought about a Whites?

I have just started a thread, " what detector do you use" and my own detector is a white spectrum XLT.  I have added a link to the spectrum review
good luck, and good hunting
