    Question Which EM Locator is your favorite?

    I started out using the metrotech Loc2 transmitter and receiver, and am not using the Ridgid ST-33Q+. I love the ridged transmitter, but I prefer the VlocPro2 Receiver over the Ridgid SR-20.

    I'm curious as to which transmitter and receiver set ups you all prefer?

    I was using the ViVax Vloc. Good for deep lines but much like the old English sports cars, spent way too much time in the shop being repaired. I am favorably impressed with the Radio Detection line, they work well and are durable. I liked to also keep as a second locator, no one does everything, an old Metrotech 810.

    Why do you prefer the vivax over the seektech? I have both and am just curious, the vivax beats the seektech into the ground for mapping and modern features but the seektech has the ability to narrow focus the bandwidth on deep locates. The vivax is terrible at detecting interference so I use them all for different things, and the coil design on the seektech transmitter is the best out there for induction and you can write any freq you want to use with anybodys equipment so it handles almost everything you could need except higher than 33k frequency for inductive. But nothing does it all.
