Minelab X-Terra 705 Dual Pack Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on May 16, 2016):
- This detector is good with the stock coil and totally kick ass with the 5x10" 18.75 kHz coil. Spend the extra coin and get the Dual Pack. The 705 has great discrimination to iron, you're still going to be digging small pieces of foil and pull tabs but that's pretty standard with any detector. FOILED AGAIN AARGGG. Pinpointing is right on with both coils. The 18.75kHz coil takes a bit to get used to because it is very sensitive, but once ya get the tones down you won't even have to look at the display. I use the display for more of a second opinion on the target. I have not seen any technical data on the gold prospecting mode, but what it acts like is a ultra hyper sensitive detector setting with minimal to no discrimination. The Iron mask works pretty well on canceling out hot rocks. In gold mode you will find GOLD IF: #1 there is gold and #2 there is not a lot of trash. .22 rounds will drive ya crazy, they mark clean just like gold. Lead and gold have very similar properties. Switching between prospecting mode and coin mode you can pretty much screen your targets. Anyways, it does work, the unit is very light, easy on batteries, super easy to use, the back light is cool. This is a very consistent detector, I would recommend it. Hope this helped, have a good one and fill your holes.
