Like a Completely New Site

I discovered the same civil war camp twice, well it seems like I have. After finding a camp in 2005 my buddy John and I had hunted it hard ever since. After the relic finds slowed down I decided to buy a X-TERRA 705, and added the medium freq. coil. I hunted the same site my first day with the X-TERRA. It was like a completely new site, my first twelve holes were nice dropped 54 caliber and 36 caliber Teradrops.

Since that day I have revisited several old sites and had the same success! Not only do I get extreme depth but I also lock in on smaller brass and lead as well. The signals are so smooth and clear, it's just a better detector all around. I hunt in all metal, two tone and it's a super detector! Just yesterday we went to another old site we have hunted for 6 years, within a hour I had dug a beautiful Barber 1906 silver half dollar! As I was walking toward my buddy John, bam, another solid signal, I dug down about the depth of my digging tool, around a foot and there was another Barber, this time a 1909 Quarter! I also dug deep bullets, as a matter of fact this is the deepest detector I have ever used. I marked my shovel with the depth of the bullet and measured it back home, 15 inches!

I now use this detector all the time, it's just the best out there in my opinion. For the conditions here in SW Missouri it can't be beat. We jumper across the street to a vacant lot and I dug five civil war buttons! Now I cannot wait for this weekend and get to another hard hunted site, because with the X-TERRA 705 it's like a brand new camp! Thanks for making such a amazing detector!
