What is the best metal detector?
We had noted that there is a multitude of detectors. Not only do the detectors, but also the conditions of the terrain and the search, as well as the type of objects searched vary. These differences lead to an emphasis on different features in different detectors. It is imperative to choose the correct detector for the task.
For instance, a treasure scanner would not be ideal to search gold nugget in a mineral-rich environment. Indeed, the Treasure Scanners are built to detect larger targets, instead of spotting small pieces of metal in the terrain. This helps the user ignore the deceptive signals from small pieces of metal in the surface.
For the "Treasure Scanner" is all about finding large targets buried deep. High-end Treasure Scanners can detect gaps and metals. Yet they are less sensitive with respect to smaller objects. The purpose of Treasure Detectors is to detect much larger objects.
On the other hand, "Gold Detector" is sensitive for much smaller pieces of metals, and most importantly for gold. Its design principles aim to achieve highest sensitivity for smaller objects. It is capable of detecting all precious metals and gold which the treasure detector may not be able to spot.
On the other hand, "Single Coin and Hobby" detectors provide better results in medium depth levels, and work best in spotting coins or various metal objects (gold, silver, copper) scattered around. Some models make use of advanced technology to make it more adaptive to the mineral structure of the soil. They may also be equipped with water-resistant coils allowing use in marine, river, and beach environments. They are used with pleasure by many users.
Yet, another question may then arise:
Is there a "best" among the detectors in a single category?
The answer would lie with the customer, the person to use the detector.
It is not fair to compare detectors built for distinct purposes.
The detectors in the market vary by intended depth, stability, ergonomics, total weight, price, support, warranty, and brand name. The customer will make the choice on the basis of these variables, and select the "best" one for his/her needs and priorities.
