Most helpful review for Blisstool LTC64X v3Its good for parks.
I recently purchased this Blisstool detector and have got out for few times now. So far what I have read is that no good for public parks or areas with a lot of trash, however I have gone to few local parks and some others in the Longview area and so far I have been successfully hunting with it.
On my first day out with it it took me little of time to set the ground balance correctly but once I tuned in it was just great. Down in Longview I found a silver earing about 7" down and on each target that I found I was rising the coil to see how dip from the coil will it see each target and I am impressed with the depth of this machine.
Each time that I have been able to use it's just little less hard to set the balance correctly and on the Manual mode it's just great to use it.
I have to said that If there are targets dipper than 12" inches this will get them with no problem at all. That same day I got a copper washer that was about 13" down and it sound loud and solid on each pass.
On my next trip to a different park in Vancouver I found a Nice 925 Italy silver pendent and few feet away I found the chain for it, the pendent was at 7" and the chain at 4".
So on my opinion it's a great detector, the only thing that I don't like is the fact that it's a single tone machine but the discrimination to nails it's great and compensates for the one tone future.
The discrimination is so good that it has a discrimination depth and it will discriminate correctly down to 10", more than 11" the discrimination is not so good but the tone will not be as good as with a non ferrous target.

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.
