Title: Time for a change. If it were your money...
Post by: Dusty on June 08, 2015, 04:09:52 PM
What would it be, Xterra 705 or a Whites M6?

Plenty of reviews for the Minelab but not much about for the Whites..? The Americans seems to like them but can't make out if there's a little bias because they are built in the states or that they are just a good machine?

Both very nice machines to use but my vote would have to go to the Xterra as I had some great finds with mine, it's lighter and you can alter the frequency if you feel inclined by changing the coil ;)

Ah yeah, didn't you have one at one time Geoff but got shot of it?

Should really have bought the 705 when Amazon had them at 393 but missed out while looking at getting the cheaper M6.

Personal recommendation is always useful when making a decission so I'll probably stick with the Minelab. Miss my Safari and the wacky sounds.

Mmmmmm, It grieves me paying that much when they've been a lot less, especially in April - missed out there  >:(

See if my bottle holds out for a cheaper price. Flubit were a waste of time, saving me a whole 1%!
