Did you ever have a detector you ALWAYS seem to come back to (- General)

I've always been the type to try every new detector that comes down the pike. I've used and tried just about all the major manufacturers' "heavy hitters". Funny thing is I always seem to come back to the Minelab Sovereign. Of course Minelab no longer makes them but what a cult following this detector still has! I guess it can be attributed to the fact that I have the most time in with this machine since it was the first one I started with and I have found more keepers at hunted out sites with it then all others combined. It's definitely not without faults and drawbacks, that's for sure. But because of those drawbacks, it's taught me to swing low and slow. And as far as the lousy ergonomics go, I actually enjoyed modifying them all to my liking. This machine just has such a unique language and great modulated audio that I just can't give it up. I actually prefer the earlier versions as well. They are built like tanks and seem to last forever. How bout you guys? Any older, out of production detectors you still have a soft spot for in your heart? HH George Fatizzi
