As far as the machines you listed, they will all work to find gold. The challenge is that most of what you are in the area to find is likely gold flakes and pieces that are less than 0.5 grams. Those machines are not going find that. Now if you happen to stumble across a 2-3 gram nugget, all of them should find it if you are using proper swing techniques and the nugget is within range of the coil.
