    Picked Up A Minelab Pro-Sonic

    I was able to take this out a week ago and got a few hours in on it with my sdc2300. although I didn't find any gold it was really nice not getting tangled up on the bushes. as far as the volume goes it is plenty loud with the head phones but when I would unplug them to let my friend here the target, the speaker was way to low. I plugged in my amp and external speaker and it was much better. I couldn't notice any delay at all with the unit although I would get some kind of interference every once in a while as if the unit was loosing connection. I tried wiggling the wires and other things but could not figure out what was doing it. I plugged it in my friends x-terra 705 for a few minutes and didn't seem to have any interference. I hope to get out with it some more soon to see if it was the area I was in or its my detector not playing nice with it.

    Picked Up A Minelab Pro-Sonic

    i hope to get out this weekend with it hooked to my sdc so well see how it does by itself and with the treasure screamer plugged in.

    X-Terra 705 ID Targets

    I'm not sure, there different types of metal nuggets I found at a lake that is low right now and usually cant metal detect. I was hoping for a way to id them. I'll have to do some research for that area to see if there's any natural material around or if the metal is from someone's boat engine just blew up.

    X-Terra 705 ID Targets

    thanks for all the feedback. I figured it would be hard to identify since even just waiving the items around gave me different id's.
  6. i've been looking all around for a target id chart for raw metals for my x-terra 705. all i've been able to find is ones listing coins and when i try to look up what material the coins are to cross reference them, they all seem to be made primarily of copper. if anyone have suggestions what these might be or another target id chart out there i would appreciate it.
