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.

I have been using my Troy Shadow X5 for several months now and have been impressed with the performance and quality of this machine. It is simply one of the best built metal detectors I have ever owned.
The X5 is deadly on coins and relics. Small, and I mean small gold, copper and lead items can't get away from it. Small brass fish hooks and small lead split shot fishing weights are common finds around lakes and beaches. The pinpointing feature is excellent with the large spider coil that ships stock with the X5.
This detector is as light as they come and a pleasure to swing for extended periods of time. It is also water resistant so you can use it in the rain or spray and not have to worry with covers. The controls are well thought out and easy to use.
The one complaint I do have is the size and throw of the target check toggle switch. It wears on you finger after a few hours if you are not wearing some kind of glove. The shaft of the toggle switch could have been a bit bigger, longer and rounded to make it more comfortable.
It does take a few hours to get used to the X5 but once you begin to have some confidence in the machine it's a snap to tell memorial pennies from wheat pennies with the Target Check Switch.
All in all it's a nice machine. A bit high priced but should last for many years of serious metal detecting.
