    New to AD

    Hello from NH
    Been interested in Detecting for a couple years. Had A Whites mx6 a while ago, never used it, sold it. It's time to try again.
    Looking forward to learning hobby and meeting new people.

    Welcome to the forum, Brian!

    Many detectorists in your part of the country seem to do extremely well with Whites machines. Do you have any idea what type of machine you would be getting next? There is certainly a lot of history there in New Hampshire, it is prime metal detecting territory.

    Best of luck!

    No idea what to get yet.
    I read many good reviews on Teknetics eurotek pro wit 11" DD search coil. More my price range to start.
    Any suggestion in the $300 to $400 range.
    Interested in coin, relic and jewelry hunting. Occasional beach hunting.
    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forum. I started using Bounty Hunters for cheaper than your taking about, and have done pretty well with them around here. Good luck in your search.

    Welcome from Northern Illinois.

    One machine you might want to consider is the Garrett AT pro.
    Quite of few people I know have used it and liked it.

    Check out You Tube and do a little research, see what people are using in your area.
    Good Luck to you and HH
