Admin nuggethunting Posted April 24, 2006 Admin Report Share Posted April 24, 2006 Hello All, I just wanted to give you all a brief update on the new Minelab X-Terra 70 that just got released a while back. Well I must say I'm more impressed than ever, especially after what my hunting partner found out in the Bradshaw's this weekend. I was skeptical about the "Nuggethunting" abilities (Prospecting Mode) of the new unit. However, my partner Glenn this weekend found a dinky-ass nugget with it this weekend just experimenting. Now before I jump the gun, he found the target, but couldn't get a good pinpoint on it cause of the coil design. He new it was a small target, but had trouble pinpointing since the X-Terra's coil isn't hot on the outside edge. He came back with the Minelab GP3000 and Coiltek Joey and low and behold it was a 2-3 grain nugget in a small crack! Just goes to show it will find small gold, which I was not real certain about. This weekend Leaverite and I played around with it and the discrimination is awesome, much better than the White's MXT in my opinion. I could actually cancel out targets completely, which is a feature of the Minelab Explorer II. Now I still think the Minelab Explorer II is the best coil/relic machine and it's one of my hottest selling units to archeologist now (Thanks You Know Who!). However, from what I'm seeing the new X-Terra 70 had a lot of similar features like the Explorer II and then some good gold prospecting abilities. More testing needs to be done, but I'm quite impressed to say the least. The depth is very impressive.P.S. I have plenty X-Terra 70's in stock and you will also get a FREE 3kHz Searhcoil with the purchase of one (limited time only). Take care,Rob Allison Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
