Well I have had only had 2 detectors since 1974. A whites 6/DB and a Whites MXT that I bought when I retired. In '74 I think I paid $300 for the 6/DB. I told my wife I'd pay it off in 3 months with my finds. It only took a month and a half lol, I ran that machine every year till 2013 without a problem. Treated myself to the MXT on retirement. And yes it has paid for itself.

So, with that said, I'll cast a vote for a Whites, Sweet Home, Oregon

I have a Minelab exxterra 70 with several coils. It does well. I've been using a Fisher F70 as of late, mostly because of the Sun Ray inline probe I put on it. All the major manufactors make good stuff. I would buy whatever your budget allows. Allow $ for a pin pointer if you don't already have one. More importantly than buying a certain brand, I would buy locally. It may be a few bucks more, but their help and support is worth alot. I would NOT buy off ebay unless its a licensed dealer. Too many chinese clones out there.

There's a lot of nice machines out there but I would go with the AT Pro with the waterproof feature for hot summer days in the water and add a waterproof pinpointer.
See what machine feels good to you weight wise and fit.

Hi guys, new member here. I think this is my 2nd post.
Anyway, I think I'd like to try this hobby. I've done some research from these threads. I'm looking at whites mx sport.
I would like an all around detector to start.
So any other suggestions?
