Is anyone here familiar with the relatively new Minelab 20-40-60 series? From what I see, it is a decent detector, but also compact enough to carry on my scooter..

Mine came over on the Mayflower, but even though it was a cheap price 20 years ago, it does a good job and will even discriminate.
I would bet that they are all good, but I don't know if there are different sizes.
good luck.

I can't speak for this particular model, but Minelabs are probably the best detectors made. The "flutey" sounds take some getting used to though. I'm still trying to get used to my X-Terra 70, but that thing will detect a single 7 1/2 shot at about 3 inches, and a quarter to about 9 inches.

I have long suspected that the Minelabs were a "cut above" most brands.
