I like the looks of some of the new detectors and with the new electronics they have the jump on some of the ones I use but at my age I can't really justify buying one. I just got the CZ 21 and didn't really make much use of it at the beach. I hope to hit some of the old swimming holes around here if it ever warms up 😀 We usually get snow on the ground by late Oct. and it stays until mid march on the open ground and later on the wooded sites. It hasn't been above freezing for quite some time. Supposed to warm a little tomorrow for snow, then be down to -15 F by the end of the week.
