minelab xterra 305 Review by sfox54
recently i won an xterra 305 in a contest on barts big boys forums. In the past i have owned a bounty hunter and a teknetics detector, which i may add are both great machines. At first i didn't like the 305, but i committed to learning this machine. As i have gained experience it has out performed both of my previous machines in all areas of find including coins and jewelry. It has super depth, pinpointing and target i.d. With a little patience i came to understand what the 305 is telling me. in over a month my silver finds have more than doubled the total silver finds of both my previous machines and I am finding deeper coins in sites i have hunted before. I like the fact that with a coil change you can make a frequency change and it is like having a whole new detector again. The controls are very easy to use and to understand and the various settings seem almost endless. assenbly was a breeze with easy to follow instructions and only takes 10-15 minutes. there really are too many features to list here, and i went from initially not caring for this detector to one i will never part with. great all around detector.
