Without proper Id you don't know what your digging,and if your ok with that just get a Tesoro Tejon,set it up for coin check and hope it's a coin.Save you a lot of money and the same usable depth compared to fishers and deus as far as visual Id goes.
Depth isn't everything,that's a big misconception of this hobby.Most midpriced metal detectors get a good solid 8 inches with better than average identification visually.I mean how far do you wanna dig for a memorial,because it seems I find more deeper clad than I do coins that are silver or old coppers.If your not finding anything chances are it's just not there,or you need to grid search the area.
I us to be one of the guys who worried that I went over a spot with xy machine,then took zs machine back over it and found so much the other machine missed.
Don't work that way,maybe a different direction,different coil or swing speed would have found it with the first machine.Remember,nothing's ever hunted out right.
