    I am seriously considering purchasing the armada pr0700 wire locator. I can get it for $575 but before i spend this much money does anyone have any comments, suggestions, etc. About this locator and the price?

    Thanks for your help!

    My understanding is it is pretty similar to 521. I wouldn't trade in a working 521 thinking it is a major upgrade. Has some features I like though. Longer wand, uses different batteries(D cell I think). i think this is a price point issue.

    A used in good shape 521 at 350.00 or a new Armada at 575.00. I guess I'd go with the Armada since I'm tired of bending over with the old style 521.

    Good morn'

    I have the older/original protech 600.

    I likes it. I never used a 521, so can't compare.

    I have found valves with it, thou.
