X-Terra 705 10.5 DD 7.5 Coil combo Rocks
March 19, 2011
"Wow" Pretty much sums up how I feel about this machine. Have it for about
a month now and really getting to feel like an extension of my arm. The
ground tracking feature rocks and the DD coil just got a hit on a half
dollar 16 inches down!!! I kept digging and digging and thought there is
nothing here but I didn't give up and man am I a happy digger! Cant go
wrong with this combo.
X-terra 705 pecos river trail relics
March 14, 2011
I recently bought a 705 and just detected a 1800 site on the pecos river
that I shot with a bounty hunter last fall. This time with the 10.5 dd
Man what a difference, over the same area I found numerous targets,
including belted conicals, musket balls, and last but not least a
confederate shielded eagle button.
The x-terra 705 is a top notch detector. I really like the 18.75dd
elliptical for parks. Its light and great for pinpointing. Locate then back
off then sweep forward when you locate stop, your target will be directly
under the tip of the coil.

Had some problems at first, Kellyco took care of the first and replaced the
unit, The second was replaced by Minelab without a hitch after using it for
9 months. 3rd ones the charm! Great on the beach, especially dirty ones
and finds small gold in the Mtns. of NC and GA. You can swing this baby all
day, its as light as a feather. Oh the DD elpitical is a must for beach and

Got my Minelab X-Terra 705 Gold Pack last week and took it out today for a
real test drive in a couple of old stream beds. The first thing I realized
is how light the machine is compared to my friend's MXT. The display is a
bit different than what I'm used to, but it really makes more sense after
you use it awhile. The "iron mask" default setting is
"5" but I had it on "zero" since I was in an area with
little or no trash. Sure enough, after about 20 minutes, I got my first
hit on a small flake of gold!! Another 2 1/2 hours got several more hits
and the total for the day came in at 1.7 grams. It's not enough to start
another gold rush, but the 705 does what it's supposed to........ it finds

I've had my Minelab Xterra 705 for about a year now and I love it. I bought
it mainly for its light weight due to a shoulder problem I have.
I use it both in-land and on the the beach and have been very succesful
Year to date - I have have 8 rings and other misc. jewlery.
Minelab X-terra 705 garbage!

This is the worst detector ever. I have an ounce of gold and it wont even
detect it, and the accept/reject button doesn't work just seems to be a
very bad detector for the price and I don't wanna call the company because
even that will cost me money.
Just a bad detector all around will never buy another minelab again, good
luck with it if you buy one of these monsters.

I love it

I have had my minelab xterra 705 for about 4 months and just love it. I was
using a Bounty hunter landstar before that and that machine did a good job
for the $$$, but as I got more into the hobby I wanted a machine that was
simple to use with good depth and dependable. I payed about $800(Canadian)
for it and it was worth it.
Learning the machine was not bad at all
and it is spot on with depth and pinpointing. I have found all sorts of
things with it from rings to old coins and much more.
It is light
weight and battery life is very good, you can also get 6 or 7 after market
coils, so you can upgrade it to your preference. The control box is weather
resistant but I did invest in the enviromental cover for about $15. I have
used a few detectors like whites dfx and xlt and they worked great too but
they are a few hundred dollars more so if you are serious about detecting
or just starting out the xterra 705 is an all around GREAT machine.
