There has always been a controversy over which metal detector is the best. The truth is there is no “best” metal detector because it really depends on a number of factors.
It’s sort of like vehicles. If you ask 100 people what vehicle is the best you will get 100 different answers based upon the specific needs of each individual. If you live in the country a 4×4 truck would be ideal but someone from the city might opt for a fuel efficient car.
