Odds on favorite would be any fbs like Minelab explorer or Etrac or fbs2 like Minelab CTX.
A Minelab Equinox might work.

Fisher F75 with dst good choice too.

No guarantees though.

Go with a small coil. It can make a huge difference.

Etrac or Nokta Impact both handle EMI better than the Nox with the stock coils in my opinion. EMI to me is one of the Nox's short comings. Slap the 6" coil on the Nox and it does do better at EMI prone sites.

I have used X-Terra 705 and F75 LTD DST with little to no problems. The best I have heard of is any CZ tuned by Tom Dankowski. I have run a CZ 3D Tom tuned in places that I can't run a Racer 2 with the small coil or the Equinox 800 with the standard coil, with no problems on the CZ 3D.

I had a Whites M6 that did well, my short ownership of the Nox 600 proved it to be not EMI proof. It was jumpy even in normal use. My ATMax seems to do well.
