Top 10 Best Metal Detectors for General Use

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.
