Did this video help you?

micmoable: Is the ground typically very mineralized in the UK where you hunt?

micmoable: THANKS

PopulationcontrolNow: For land use only i had set my mind on a s/h gmp as an upgrade to my 3mx.I have heard so many good things about the 705 i am wondering if it is on a par with the gmp?Ploughed land primary use with pasture the usual growing season fallback.

malcolmpotter: Never used the GMP but the 705 is easy to use and goes deep as you will have seen in the videos. Its basically two detectors in one. Set up as general searching in Coins and Treasure mode or as a deep seeking Prospecting mode with iron mask disc. My 705 is available for sale if you are interested as CTX is now main detector.

malcolmpotter: 705 not very good on the wet sand. Use my Etrac and Excalibur II on a wet beach. 705 a coin killer on the dry sand though.

malcolmpotter: Have you used one.for some time to comment? Most people who make these comments have not. The chassis is the same just the software/functionality is different. Much underrated/competitivly priced against other like detectors. Most detectorists buy for the fun of it not to make a living, its a hobby and a very satisfing one. I have been detecting for over 38 years and every detector I have owned has paid for itsself but that s not why I do it. I just love finding old coins for my collection.

malcolmpotter: Thanks for the sub.

SuperJammygit: 705 will be my next detector,are they as good on these little hammies as i here?,,i only run the laser hawkeye,,and for the money very good,,trouble is only 10kh

Lyndon Ryan: mal, could you do a beach set-up on the xTerra 705.

malcolmpotter: Thanks for the comment. I am glad my little vid helped. Let me know how you get on and what you find. Happy hunting

malcolmpotter: If you are just going to search the beaches its best to buy a detector designed for them. If only dry sand detecting 705 is fine but forget the 705 and a waterproof coil if you are going to search all the beach. For the beach without going into the water, depending on budget. Cheapest Sovereign GT, Explorer SE, ETrac. If also water hunting Excalibur or unlimited budget CTX.

152snook: I just ordered the 705 w/9in coil said it was waterproof why not in water? help please

152snook: Hi Malcolm it's the 9" convent 7.5khz

malcolmpotter: Hi Arjun, The simple answer is no it wont. There are many things this metal detector can do but its limit is about probably 400/500mm for a target that size. There are specialist gold detecors that could do this but in houses there is electrical interference and metal reinforcing. 1k of gold is a nice target and I hope you find it but I think you need to resolve to mechanical means to remove the floor to get down to the soil to stand any chance of finding it. Good luck and hope you can find it.

malcolmpotter: Which coil have you ordered? Let me know which. Concentric coils normally waterproof to 1m deep but DD coils are not suitable for water use.

malcolmpotter: In the video "XTerra 705 First outing" It was the first time I used the 705 and I found the little Richard II hammie, thats a small as they get and found at 4". Also found Henry III penny and of course the Charles shilling at about 10". I used to have a Tesoro Silver Sabre many years ago and the 705 is in my opinion better at small silver. Had the 705 for nine months now and becoming my favourite scouting detector.

malcolmpotter: Basically for the dry sand use the same set-up. If you have any falsing press and hold the ground balance for three to four seconds until the BEACH ground balance icon appears on top right of screen. The 705 is a great dry sand and shingle beach detector but not much use on wet sand . On wet sand you need the Excalibur, CTX or a dedicated wet sand detector. 705 loses a lot of depth and stability on wet sand so you would miss more than you find.

malcolmpotter: Different sizes/ weights of rings give differing signals as carat type, Same with all detectors. As for 18ct I tested a few I have and they all sound positive at 8 so you dont need to hunt in AM to find them. You probably have the 6/8 segments disc out. Air tests with Minelabs are not accurate or conclusive as they need to see the find in the ground. PM gives even clearer signals. Coil I used was 10.5" 7.5kHz DD. The 18kHz will give a better signal but its not as deep searching as the 7.5 kHz.

malcolmpotter: 9" concentric is waterproof to 1m deep in water. Dont go any deeper as you may get water into the control box. If water hunting its worth having a poly bag over the box and seal it beneath the control box. Better safe than sorry

pixalotal: Thank you :)

relics1864: Nice Video on the 705...But if I may add to your demo....The higher the Ground Balance number on the 705 the better the ground...it's opposite most machine's...Also you said the threshold is set up for your headphones at 11 but the threshold does not carry over once headphones are plugged in you get another threshold setting for that..also the volume does not carry over from non headphones to headphone's...those 2 settings are dependent on headphones plugged in or not... Good Video..

G Arjun: hai mal it is very nice vedio..i had one dought.......can it detect treasure like one kilo of gold under stone floor of 1 meter depth?because in india houses are floored with stone.

pixalotal: Bummer. I have been trying on the beach on the wet soil and nothing. If I have had it on number 1 instead of 4 would I be missing a lot of things? I've found coins and. Steel ring so far. I think I could keep the drink factory in pull tops for a year lol

micmoable: I'm first viewer Malcom--ha ha! Only problem is I don't own a 705---but I bet they are really decent detectors. Wonder if it'll work on wet saltwater sand down at beach?

malcolmpotter: Just scroll cursor by pressing - button to 6/8 segment and press accept button

Chronosphere Steen: yeah thats the sad truth but also, YOU DONT know if there is someone who struck riches in the ground, i doubt you have been lookin all over the world and tbh in many decades people burid treasure in group but ofc very rare indd. BUT people today win over 100mill in lottery all over the world saving their life. i seen many people get by by selling their artifacts BECUASE people with money is intressted in this and if poor poeple hunt for them THEY PAY YOU FOR THE JOB! dont write of u cant see pic

micmoable: THAT JUST MEANS THEY PISSED IN THE YARD ALL THE TIME---HA HA HA!

malcolmpotter: The farm that I am searching at the moment the soil conditions vary greatly. This field has a high mineralised content (60) but the field across the stream is a lot lower (43). It seems the nearer you get to the farmhouse the higher the reading.

pixalotal: Thank you so much for a great video! I have watched a couple but this one I actually understand lol. I got my 705 for Xmas and the husbands proberbly getting sick of me complaining I don't find much haha. Maybe now I know the settings better i will have more luck :) mel

pixalotal: I know I can't buy a waterproof coil for the xterra. It's the 6" round one. Is it worth getting or do you think or better to get a water dedicated machine? Thanks so much for answering my questions. I've watched that many videos and been all over the forums trying to get ideas. I'm totally addicted already :)
