G'day from SA
« on: February 09, 2017, 12:42 »
G'day everyone my name is Dave and I'm from Salisbury SA.  I got an x-terra 705 for xmas and didn't realise metal detecting was hard work.  Nothing but ring pulls and bottle caps with the odd coin here and there, I was starting to get frustrated till I found this site. Read everything I could about the x-terra and tried again.  Wow this thing picks up everything.  I've collected over 200 coins from the one local park.  i can't wait to get to the beach and try it there. 
So to everyone who has ever posted anything about the x-terra 705 Thank you.

Welcome Dave,
Its not all gold sovs and silver rings unfortunately but once you get your brain dialled into your machine the coins flow.
Awesome machine the 705 and that is what started my journey.
Was just talking to a SA detectorist on the phone this morning, certainly a fair few of you down that way.
Thanks for taking the time to post and glad you got sorted with some help from the members.
Happy Hunting Bloke
