Minelab X-Terra 305 Metal Detector

Minelab X-Terra 305 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on April 7, 2014):
I purchased the Minelab X-Terra 305 after detecting with the mother-in-law's fiancé he currently uses a 705 series and I was impressed. I came from using a 1st Texas Pilot detector which worked surprisingly well for its price. Upon getting the X-Terra 305, its performance is head and shoulders above the Pilot. It assembled easily (I didn't bother screwing the unit to the shaft, it doesn't move at all regardless) and I used it the following day. It's accuracy is outstanding, the manual ground balance is a welcome feature (I prefer to adjust it myself instead of the fixed GB) and the signals are very sharp. It's accurate enough to where switching to the pinpointer mode, the target is typically in the center of the coil anyway. I also appreciate that the volume can be adjusted, something that really annoyed me with the Pilot. The package that came from Kellyco was also fantastic, typically Amazon or Ebay sells the detector alone for $399, and with Kellyco I chose Option 2 ($419) and the audio headphones that came with are awesome, the gator tool works well (I still prefer the Lesche though) and the 1st Texas pinpointer (again, I use the ML Profind) will work well for when we have a friend tag along using my now defunct Pilot. I was having a hard time deciding between the 305 and the Garrett Ace 350, and I feel I made a fantastic choice. This detector will do everything I need it to, and do it well unless I decide to venture into $1,000+ detectors.
