Minelab Pro-Find 35 vs XP MI-6. Depth comparison

On the one hand, it’s a usual comparative test of the Minelab Pro-Find 35, XP MI-6 and Garrett Pro-Pointer AT probes.

Comparison: Makro Multi Kruzer vs Minelab Equinox 800. Ground test

Here’s a comparison: Makro Multi Kruzer vs Minelab Equinox 800. Which machine sees deeper and doesn’t read non-ferrous objects as ferrous ones? Is it the Makro Multi Kruzer?
