Hi Nick, depends on how 'crashed up' you are. I have always been a Minelab man, upgrading from a 505 to a Safari. They are heavy. A serious motorcycle accident mid 2017 (broken femur) left me out of action for 6 months but am now using the Safari for 4+ hours. How is your balance? I went over to wireless headphones to stop tripping over; If you are a beginner you probably need an 'out of the box' machine; something you can use on standard settings. Budget is also an issue.
All the best

The important thing to keep in mind, is don't rush things before you really are fit enough to walk without having any concerns. Until then, you can do a shed full of 'armchair detecting' it all counts towards the 'learning curve'.

This is a great time to enjoy reading through all of the sub-forums in the blue panel to the left of this page and check out the many detecting related video's on the 'tube'.

There are no 'silly'questions and most of them have been answered before.
All the best and enjoy - ::g Regards ss47
