Most helpful review for Minelab Xterra 705I 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.

Most helpful review for Fisher CZ 7a ProCZ7a - fast, easy, all around detector
The Cz7a has been a real treat to own and use. I have found like all machines you must get to know it for it to be of any use. Once you know how to operate and use the fun begins. I have found things such as a buried womens purse with gold necklace inside (20 years buried)at 5 inches deep, gold ladies ring (gave foil signal)lost at park, owner found, 1876 Indian penny, old military buttons,at a road construction site 7 inches deep,1916 lincoln Penny at 8 inches deep, all around detector.
Time + knowledge = finds with this machine. Like others have said, you will always dig trash to get the good stuff. Pick up a used one and try the notch buttons on the touch pad screen to just look for coins, or release to pick up the signals for pop tabs and foil when at the beach,might just find a ring or two, use in salt water or fresh, with the 7a pro you can detach the box and wade up to your butt in the surf. Do the research, grab your CZ 7a and go have some fun. Best fun for the money spent. If all you find is modern coins until you get more experience take this money and buy a coin or gold that will grow in value.We all have our own learning curve. I have come home with rashes on my legs from carrying the coins in my pants pockets found with this machine. Buy one and take your grandchildern "treasure hunting"
You will always find coins with this machine. You will find rare coins, you will find jewlery with this machine. Best of all you will find fun. I have the CZ7a and the CZ7a pro. I do not work for Fisher Corporation, Enjoy!
