    X-Terra 305 Good? Bad?

    Seems to be a pretty good deal going on the X-Terra 305 here in the UK at the moment however I am a bit stuck as to where to go for it or the Quest Q20...or even a Go Find 44.

    The X-Terra 305 is better built than the Go Find but I am thinking in terms of performance, especially on the beach. I live just 12 miles from some of the best beaches in the UK so that is my number one search area for now.

    Any thoughts on the X-Terra 305?

    The X-Terra will blow away a Go Find.
    I got a 305 on a trade and ended up buying a 705 for the extra features.
    The 705 is still my daily driver if you will.

    Thanks. I had a feeling the Go Find would be not such a good buy so will leave that for now.

    Someone gave me a list of options to look at:


    X-Terra 305
    Fisher F22
    Teknetics Eurotek Pro
    Whites Treasure Master Pro.

    Very confusing all this. Was a lot easier that last time I was doing this but that was 25 years ago!

    Metal Detecting
    I recently got back into detecting after pursuing other interests for a few years.
    Beings I sold off my previous acquirement I purchased a new X-Terra 305 and I really happy with it. Using my previous old test garden I find the target ID numbers are much stabler and it detects deeper than any of my previous detectors.

    I like it!!

    Thanks for that. I am still considering the X-Terra 305 but also the Liberator too. It's a little more money but a lot more features. As I need to buy two detectors I may get that or the 305 plus a Quest X5.
