Waiting for the XLT-e

Not like it's a new thing from whites but it will be new for me. Should arrive this saturday. I been watching a lot, and I mean a lot of videos about the XLT on YouTube. I can't believe there's not a lot of choices for coils but I imagine there's thousand of the few that for it out there that one can obtain at a decent price.
I'm looking forward to trying the vast variety of programs offered here. Thanks to all XLT pros we have here.

I really enjoy my XLT. I use the 5.3 bulls eye coil 90% of the time and feel it is a MUST have coil. I have learned it well over the past year with the help of members on this forum and reading all the back posts and have created a few custom programs that work quit well for my area and the type of hunting I do. I well never part with it. I thought about getting a V3i and glad I did not now that the the MX Sport has come out. I will be buying A MX sport soon and feel it will be a good fit for me along side my XLT.

I had a couple of XLTs for a short time. I did like them very much but I also had the DFX which was the follow on to the XLT.. Had there been more coil choices for the XLT I think I may have kept it and sold the DFX as it was a very solid performer and a little less touchy with EMI. You really want to take the time to lean and understand the 5 or 6 performance options that need to be altered to fit the site you are hunting.. You will find with in a short time, you only need one configuration (program) which gets tweaked for the site.. I had the same idea .. collected a bunch of custom configs, plugged them all into a spread sheet and could see they were virtual the same except for a few options that need to be set per site. .and some that are personal preference..

For instance, I like Tone ID .. and with it on I can tell if the target is iron or not, so I never discriminate anything.. wide open from -85 to +95..I like VOC on, and a couple of other items that are about how things look and sound .. that stuff is all saved to my custom program and the site specific stuff gets tweaked in the first 10 minutes of the hut.. Doing the spread sheet thing was helpful to learn these options. Also having had the DFX first and studying Digging Deeper with the DFX made for a no learning curve on the XLT as the 2 machines are identical except for the Multi frequency options and digital ground filtering. I would recommend the DIggging Deeper with the DFX for anyone just starting out with the XLT as much of the info is applicable

She just arrived tonight and I just figured out how to turn her on to play with it for some air tests.


Are there any decent after market coils out there?

How are you liking you XLT? Any notable finds? how deep?

Well it certainly does have a learning curve. I've only been able to use it a couple times though. I only been using the preset programs with the Ac sensitivity turned up a touch. Not much depth noted but the signiture graph is a wonderful tool.
I did purchase a book by John Harris for DFX, Spectrum and XLTs. I got cuz he, like my father, is a chiropractor. Who's name is also John! Ha ha.
And it really helped me understand the XLT better. I can't wait to get out to try his settings. Espicially his All Metal settings.

Must have read 10 XLT books or so but John Harris tops them all as far as I am concerned...Where did you pick up the book as its been out of print for years...
His settings are one thing but his input overall is whats tops....
