What are Cadillacs? They are big, expensive, luxurious, and require expensive dealer repairs when they break down. Most people can't afford them, and they certainly aren't the "right" car for most people, but there are a lot of people who want them just because of the status symbol they represent. They are a great car, but not "perfect"
What detector fits those attributes? I'd say the Minelab CTX. It's great at a lot of things, but certainly not the "perfect" detector (which doesn't exist). I'll pick another for scuba detecting, another for gold nugget hunting, and another if being light-weight is important. But what it does do, it does very well. Just don't confuse "cadillac" with "perfect for all situations"
You'll be glad to know about the new "Cadillac Subscription Service" where, for a monthly fee, you get your choice of popular Cadillac models for however long you want the model, then the ability to switch to another model.
Maybe metal detetcor manufacturers will start similar services?
