Minelab X-Terra 505 Metal Detector

Minelab X-Terra 505 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on April 8, 2008):
It’s spring at last here in the Midwest and I have been just itching to get out metal detecting with my Minelab X-Terra 50. All winter long I make little notes of places I want to "hit" once the snow melts and the time has finally arrived. One and 1/2 weeks ago I had a heart attack and was already out last weekend with my detector. That's the only thing I could think of while "resting". I am so thankful that this metal detector is as light as it is. Even in my recuperating condition, I could be out without getting exhausted. I got the "bug" when I was a little girl and have always dreamed of finding a treasure. I have been detecting now for approximately 4 years and even though I can't get out in the winter months and work 40 - 46 hours a week, I find time to relax doing one of my favorite hobbies.

I basically enjoy searching for coins and relics and have found plenty of each. This is my second detector and it has increased my productivity quite a bit. It is so easy to use. Believe me, I am not a pro by any means, but the panel is pretty self explanatory. When I purchased the detector, I watched the CD that came with it at least 3 times then off I went. I would much rather learn by watching than reading, but the few times I have referred back to the owners manual, I found exactly what I was looking for with ease. My family owns a couple hundred acres of wooded land and I have been very lucky to find an old logging camp that I have been digging for a couple years. Last summer I finally found an old license plate that gave me the year 1934. Oh the fun I have. I wish everyone had a hobby they enjoy as much as I do with metal detecting. We'd all be happy people.
