All metal detectors are definitely not created equal. The best metal detectors will help you find more good targets so choosing the right one is important. There’s always a lot a controversy over which metal detectors are the best so we’ve created a list of what we think the best ones are.
For this top 10 list we’ve chosen the most popular detectors that are professional models and have a lot of praise in the community. If you’re looking for a general use or coinshooting detector that is top of the line then you should consider the following:
Minelab CTX3030 – Excellent land machine that is known for deep silver coins and also 100% waterproof for detecting under water.
Minelab Etrac – If you’re looking for a silver coin magnet then the etrac is known as one of the best.
White’s V3i – Excellent all around machine.
White’s MXT – Extremely popular all around machine.
Fisher F-75 – Another very popular detector for general use.
Fisher F-70 – Another great all around detector.
XP-Deus – Known for being extremely lightweight, wireless, and a super fast recovery speed.
Teknetics T2 – Great on silver coins and for general detecting. Also known as a good relic machine.
Teknetics Omega 8000 – Another great all around detector.
Garrett AT Pro – Very stable and pretty good land hunting detector that’s also 100% waterproof to 10 ft. Although I wouldn’t really consider it a “top of the line” model. It’s in my opinion one of the best detectors out there for the money because of the price and underwater capability.
