Minelab X-Terra 505 Metal Detector

Minelab X-Terra 505 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on April 12, 2008):
I love my Minelab X-Terra 50! With my X-Terra 50, I have found 22 gold and silver rings, jewelry and 25 silver coins in the past two years detecting with it. Of course I have found tons of clad coins with it also - 4723 coins to date to be exact equaling about $125 total! The X-Terra 50 is very easy to learn. The most important thing is ground balancing every time you fire the detector up. Every so often a quick adjustment keeps it in optimum treasure finding mode. The treasure id numbers are extremely accurate also- 36 is always a copper penny or a dime, 42 a quarter or sometimes a 50 cent piece, 9 or 12 is usually a nickel or if lucky enough a gold ring!

The battery life is awesome. I usually get at least 25 to 30 hours with four name brand quality AA batteries. Also the pinpoint mode works very well. I usually can dig a small plug and come up with the target every time, especially on coin sized objects. I love the light weight of the X-Terra 50 as well. Since I try to detect at least 2-3 hours every time I'm out, the light weight of the detector keeps my back and arms very happy. I have even tried a little water detecting with my X-Terra 50. I'm very careful to keep the computer dry, usually covering it with a Ziploc bag duct taped around it. I've even found a couple rings and wheat pennies in the water so far with it.

Overall, for the features, ease of use, and nice price of the Minelab X-Terra 50 I would recommend it to all my detecting buddies. It is just a great little detector!
