I think you mean a Bentley. Cadillacs are so 1980's...

I was just joshing bud. It is funny though, what was considered luxury back in the day vs now. When this thread first appeared I was thinking "who would want a Cadillac?"...but being 40 and born in the 70's, I knew the gist of what the OP meant.

OH I know, I'm just clowning and have been this entire thread, I was never mad or upset or any of that. It's been comical IMO.

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?

Awesome! I could swap out my CTX for an excal when I go the Caribbean, then for a GPX or GPZ when I go to the gold fields or deep relic hunting.

It all depends on how much the manufacturer wants to spend on marketing.

If it hasn't been said....the one YOU know how to use. I see a fair amount of people skipping from this to that...learn a machine. "Overall all around versatility and capability"? CTX. Results don't lie. Others are VERY good,but all around goes to the CTX. This is from some experience and looking at what has been found and with what,and the conditions in which things were found. Most of the time,it's after several other hunters and machines have combed the area for years. It's in the signal processing....IMHO. Is it "best" in every category? No.
