Go Up Go Down

I'm planning some ghost towning trips this summer and am looking for a good backup detector.
Preferably something lightweight, with pinpointing ability.   It gets extra points if it breaks down well to be attached to a backpack.

I'll post more on the models I'm considering, as I get closer to going.

My ideal detector (what I'm really looking for, but can't afford at any price I've seen so far)
is a Fisher CZ-3D.   Not that it fits my description above, but just that I've always wanted one.

But please, message me with suggestions, and if you have a whole bunch of detectors, and you have one lying around that you've been thinking of shedding for a few years but were "waiting for a sign"..... here's a sign.  I'm interested.

Prices negotiable, and I have some fun items for trade as well.

Cheers

Chris

Tesoro---Cibola  may be exactly what you are looking for unless you are also tied to a visual display (it has the benefits of being a decent nugget hunter too).   The other Tesoro's are also worth looking at.

The Garrett AT-Pro is another good candidate as are both the Fisher F5 and F70.

That's a good question.   I'm looking for 2 detectors I suppose, a backup and a gold detector.  For the backup i' looking for coins And caches mostly, tho I do like to hit beaches here and there, but that will be a whole other detector unless I can get ahold of a used cz3d

Look into the Garrett AT-Pro.      Water tight to 10ft.    15Khz is good for gold.
