So I am not sure if its because I am just too used to my Garrett ace 350 or if these detectors are acting wonky on me. The XLT works great but seemingly at random It will just start falsing like crazy and sometimes it goes away on its own in a minute or two and other times a battery pull doesn't even change anything. Redoing the ground balance has 0 effect on this crazy falsing, I suspected maybe it was overcompensating for the ground mineralization but since rebalancing doesn't change anything I don't think that's the issue here. I have tried different areas and made sure to not carry my phone and still had falsing issues randomly. Other than that it works great and I have found a handful of common clad so far in the past week. Ok as far as the beach hunter...I am completely new to manual ground balancing, but I seem to have gotten over that slight learning curve but I noticed the ground balance drifts constantly and I find myself having to fiddle with it every 5 minutes or so to get it back in sync. I pulled a few pull tabs and 2 clad pennies from the beach so I know it works but that seems crazy to have to adjust that often. First hung out in the sand for half an hour then moved into the water for half an hour and both places I had to adjust balance seemingly too often. So What I'm looking for here is someone who owns one or both to relate and let me know if they have the same issues or if this is odd to them. Also would be great if someone from whites could actually chime in here.
