Default Deep in the Woods!

Hey everyone!

I've been through 35 years of metal detecting and at least a dozen different machines, including my first one was a "Turtle" if anyone remembers that one

Right now I have a White's TM-808 2-box and a Garrett AT-Pro.

My interest now is hunting for the buried treasures. Mason jars, pipes, etc.. in the woods.

I love walking the woods all day waiting for the beep!

I'm not to keen on the TM-808. I used to have the Gemini-3 and liked it better, but I would rather have a stick machine instead of 2-box.

I have a budget of no more than $5,000.00

I've been looking at the:

Garrett ATX Deepseeker, Minelab CTX 3030 and Nokta Deephunter 3D Pro

I will only use the new machine for large objects that are 1' - 4'+ deep

Am I looking at the best options? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...

I'm not familiar with 2 box detectors but since you're looking for stuff deeper than a foot maybe you should look into some of the Pulse induction pull along detectors. I quickly searched and take a look at the golden mask deep hunter detectors.
