If you want to hunt the wet sand, the CZ5 is the only multi-frequency machine in your line up. It will be super stable in the conductive wet sand....which is prime hunting especially if you can hit the low tides. It is equally effective in the dry, trashy areas too.

No matter what, take at least one of them and try your luck.

I have the M6 and wet salt sand is not friendly to that machine. multifrequency is the way to go.

X2. The CZ5 is the dirt version of the CZ-20/21 I believe. There is no other choice.

Cz5 with the 8" is really your only option (salt water). Good luck
