    treasure hunter model # xj9-3050. any good?

    hi all! ive decided to get into the metal decting again.(not that i ever was except when i was 15 yrs old i had a $50 radio shack detector.i found a $3000 wedding ring under my great grandmas wooden porch.turned out to be my uncles wedding ring and he took it from me,sold it to the pawn shop and drank it away without even a" thank you"he has been devorced for years before i found it.)ok,back to the main subject....i bought a treasure hunter xj9-3050 and i was wondering if anyone here has used one,and if it is a good one to start out with? it has a 32bit prosessor chip and the extra large coil.any advice or info on this subject would be helpful.i live in northern michigan and am starting to do some research about my area.there are some 100+year old abandoned logging camps with 100 year old apple trees all around where they used to set up camp and get lit after a hard days work.my leads are from a old timer that lives nearby and he is 90 years old.i think this would be a good place to start,since you cannot see any apple trees from the little dirt trail that goes past it and its deep in the forest so hopefully it hasnt been hit by another people with the same idea.

    BRAND NEW FACTORY SEALED TREASURE HUNTER XJ9-3050 DEEP SEARCH METAL DETECTOR






    ----------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------



    THE ALL NEW XJ9-3050 METAL DETECTOR BY TREASURE HUNTER

    One of Treasure Hunters newest innovations for 2009. The Treasure Hunter XJ9-3050 is Treasure Hunters top of the line model. This detector was designed for the advanced user that is serious about treasure hunting. The 3050 has an amazing combination of technology to make it truly second to none among its peers. The 3050 has Treasure Hunters patented multi-frequency deep search technology found only in Treasure Hunter 3019, and XJ9-3050 metal detectors. This model is equipped with a powerful 32 bit Z-TEX Computer Microprocessor for increased depth and discrimination. The large LCD screen will visually indentify the target, the depth of the target, and pinpoint the target. This detector can achieve depths of 30cm (12") for a coin the size of a US quarter. Can detect a silver dollar at 16" depth. At the same time, this detector will tell the difference between an old wheat penny from the new zinc type of penny. This detector uses multi-frequency technology to achieve greater depths and increased discrimination. With the multi-frequency technology the XJ9-3050 can recover coins, relics, treasure as well as gold nuggets at greater depths than ever before. This turn on and go fully automatic advanced treasure hunting machine has already left a huge impression on the metal detecting community.



    Modes of operation:

    1) All Metals Mode: This mode is the high sensitivity and no discrimination mode and any metal item will be detected. The sensitivity is completely adjustable in this mode. The automatic ground balance can be used in this mode, or for advanced use, the ground balancing can be manually adjusted. Motion is not required in this mode.

    2) Motion Discrimination: This is probably the most commonly used discrimination mode. This is the motion detecting mode and the detector will discriminate with different audible tones and also will identify the target on the large LCD screen. The detector will also give the depth of the target on the screen. The ground balance is automatic in this mode and the sensitivity and discrimination are fully adjustable.

    3) Automatic Notch Filter: The 3050 deep search detector comes with pre-set programming to search for certain targets. The detector can be set to auto-notch for a specific target like gold rings and then it will only identify gold rings and other targets within the specific phase response of gold rings. The ground balance is automatic in this mode, and the sensitivity is fully adjustable.

    4) Selective Notch Filter: The discrimination notch can be manually set to find any specifically desired target. The notch can be set so that the detector can find only 1/2 dollars, or only silver dollars, or only gold nuggets, or the desired relics, etc.... The possibilities are endless. The ground balance is automatic, or manual and the sensitivity is adjustable.

    5) Deep Search with Surface Elimination: This setting is for deep searching and ignoring trash on the surface. It can be used in combination with any of the modes above and is for the hard to recover, or previously missed targets. This feature can be a very powerful treasure hunting tool when combined with the motion discrimination mode, or the notch filters. Using this feature, the 3019 can become a highly specialized tool set to find only gold nuggets at depths of up to 12".

    6) Pinpointing mode: Motion is not required in this mode. The detector will give off a steady tone that will increase as you get closer to the target. The LCD will also indicate the location of the target. This mode can use the automatic ground balance, or ground balance can be manually adjusted or finely tuned for advanced pinpointing. Sensitivity and discrimination is fully adjustable in this mode.

    This detector has all the great functions of the beloved 3019 with a slightly more powerful on-board computer to increase accuracy of discrimination. The XJ9-3050 has all these high technology features like multi-frequency detection, increased depth, pinpointing, surface elimination, improved notch discrimination capabilities, and much more. This detector has all the features and depth of the 3019 with the increased discrimination provided by the Z-TEX computer microprocessor. This detector gives a unique combination of depth and functionality that simply can not be found with any other detector. Please see the comparison with the Garret Ace 250, and Bounty Hunter Time Ranger at the bottom of this page. This detector uses NASA space age carbon and fiberglass lower stem with unbreakable non-metallic nylon connecting hardware to ensure the sensitivity and accuracy of the unit will not be compromised. This is Treasure Hunters premium deep search metal detector.

    What is (AGB) Automatic Ground Balancing?

    AGB refers to the ability of the detector to track the changes in ground mineralization and automatically adjust the ground balance to suit. This ensures perfect ground balance and full detection depth and eliminates the need for the operator to stop and manually adjust the detector as the ground conditions change.

    What is Very Low Frequency (VLF) Technology?

    Conventional VLF detectors transmit a continuous magnetic field into the ground on one set frequency. This frequency as the name implies, is on the lower end of the metal detecting spectrum 3kHz- 50kHz. The 3050 Professional detector operates at the very low end of this spectrum ~6.6kHz. The lower the detector's frequency, the deeper it will penetrate. However, its sensitivity to smaller targets may be reduced. On the other hand, the higher the detector's frequency, the higher its sensitivity to even the smallest targets, but it may not penetrate as deeply. The TH 3050 achieves extreme depths due to its VLF and magnetic field expander technology combined with astonishingly accurate sensitivity and discrimination, it does this through its patented multi-frequency technology. The Treasure Hunter 3019 and 3050 detectors use a multi-frequency technology to combine the benefit of deep penetration with the high discrimination possible with higher frequencies.

    What is Multi Frequency Technology?

    The Treasure Hunter 3019 and 3050 uses the VLF technology combined with higher frequencies up to 20kHz to give increased depth and discrimination. These higher frequencies combined with VLF technology are best for finding gold at large depths. This frequency is automatically given off and does not need to be adjusted. The increase in frequency gives a greater response to little tiny bits of gold, the 3050's increased response to small targets is about ten times as much gain as general purpose detectors. For gold searching, you must set the discrimination to the lowest setting.

    What is Target ID and how does it work?

    Treasure Hunters Patented Target ID circuitry is a very accurate measure of the target's phase response. But unfortunately some targets have identical, or nearly so, target responses. That is why you may lose a few good gold rings if you believe your ID is correct each time it tells you the target is a pull-tab. The ID is just another form of information that you, the operator, must interpret before deciding whether you will dig the target. But Fortunately, Treasure Hunters Target ID is from top of the line circuitry and the best Target ID accurate at depths of 12" for a coin and 16" for a good size ring (3019 and 3050 deep search models only). As you can see from the picture of the LCD above, the 3050 will tell you just how likely your target is to be a gold ring if it is in the range. Don't forget, your treasure Hunter 3050 also has target depth indication.

    it looks like a cheap walmart onsale metal detector. Ok here is what you need to get. Ebay, Garrett 250 only 250.00 with out that cheap shovels and stuff. Other is a Whites classic 5id thats what i have. Its the greatest only 300.00 used maybe 100.00 to 200.00. Then if you want to go big get a whites eagle. I think new is like 1,000.00 used maybe 500.00.

    A lot of Tesoro's don't have a strap. That has NOTHING to do with performance. That's a comfort feature.

    My first detector was a XJ9 pro? I found some decent stuff with it. I didnt feel like spending hundreds of dollars if i didnt know I wanted to get back into the hobby. ONce I found out i liked it again, i saved my money and bought a different machine. I keep hearing bounty hunters are wal mart detectors too. But I have seen people pull some great things out of the ground with them and pretty deep too!!! Hissinroaches, you keep us posted on the good things you will find and happy hunting!!

    I'm sure by now your detector has arrived and you've had a chance to check it out. Could you please give us a review of your impressions and test results you found. The specs on it sound good and I'm sure there are others, like myself, that would be interested in your findings. Thanks
