Default need a new detector

Just a simple question. I want a new detector and with all the rigging of the reviews, i'm just not sure which way to go. I think it would make me feel better to just take a poll from fellow hunters and see what detector they prefer. If you were given the option to have whatever detector you wanted, what would it be? I hunt in North Texas and enjoy coins, relics, jewelry, and such as this. Thanks in advance for your help!

I feel like I have the two detectors I wanted, the White's MXT and the Minelab X-Terra 705 Gold Pack. Both are multi use-machines meaning if the weather is too bad to travel out to the gold fields, I can still use them for coin/relic/jewelry hunting around town. My Fisher Gold Bug S.E. serves those purposes as well and I use it in windy conditions since it has a smaller profile. There are more expensive detectors, but I believe in K.I.S.S...........BTW, I'm a San Antonio native, living in south central Colorado. The difference is amazing!!!!

Depends on your buying budget...I like Tesoro machines for their relative simplicity and light weight, and my better half likes his minelabs machines.

I will be back down in May 2011, maybe we could meet up, or if your are ever in the Houston area I could take you to some of our hunting spots.

I saw on the news that the City of San Antonio banned detecting from its parks.

Seems like it is happening every where these days.

I just bought a Garrett GTI 2500. Do research on this detector - I am very pleased so far. Will be worth your time to check it out. Good luck on your choice.
