Most helpful review for Fisher F-19

Good for relic and gold.
Great metal detector. Deep on relics, 19kHz. Also very sensitive to gold nuggets, and rejects hot rocks very well. Not the best on the beach. It also works well on GB and f75 coils. Good in hot ground conditions, versatile, and very durable. Locks onto targets very quickly. Deepest target was a 19 gram gold ring at 17". Picks up 1 grain of gold at 3-5" depending on ground conditions.

Most helpful review for Minelab Xterra 705

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.
