Default Everybody has a favorite, but...

...IF you could swap for another detector, what would it be?

If $ were an issue...would you pick another?

My First detector is the Sovereign GT. Once I learned its language if fell in love with those sweet tones. I liked it so well that I bought a backup shortly after they quit making it. I have the Excalibur II for the beach/Water hunting. Trade????? Nah aint gonna happen.

Out Of the GPX 5000, ORX, XLT, AT Gold, I could only let go of my fresh water detector AT Gold and that's only because one of my other VLF's could get the job done, but the Gold is a sweet water unit. I'd trade in for Minelabs GPZ.

I wouldn't trade my detectors for anything else...I'm very happy with them.
