Default Back after some time. In the market for a new detector.

I used to own a tesoro compadre but had to get rid of it awhile back and leave the hobby. Been away from the scene and don't know what's good.

I was hoping for something a bit more advanced and not as entry level.

I want to be able to find deeper hits.

Tons out there nowadays.
I used a Compadre, F2, Vaquero Mojave and an F70.
Currently I grab for the Mojave for fun and profit and the F70 most of all because of the massive amount of power, features and settings I can control and change.
You want deep...this one can get you there.
The $700 F70 is discontinued, the Patriot took its place for $400 which right now is one heck of a deal for the price.
Plus there are many others.

Contact a forum sponsor to discuss pricing. The sponsors often get pre-owned machines as well as offer new machine discounts to forum folks.
