Like to get an idea on the best detectors for meteorites

Any detector made for hunting gold nuggets will work best. However, any detector with an all-metal mode and a ground balance control will work. Also a good magnet on a pole or walking cane is good. https://www.detectorprospector.com/magazine/steves-guides/steve-guide-gold-nugget-detectors/

Good luck! Jim

It might depend on where you want to hunt. If you're lóoking for a new strewn field or single falls, a magnet on a stick and a pair of sharp eyes will suffice. 

If you want to hunt an old strewn field, any metal detector used for gold would  suffice...but some are better than others.

Gold Bug 2 is a staple among meteorite hunters, but as has been mentioned, your eyes are the best detector, and a magnet is the best discriminator.
