It really all depends on how bad a detectorist wants to own the combo:thumbup: I already have mine that I will never part with cause it works for me (in my ground conditions) and Troy made some quality units!



Experiencing the adventure a lot of times will be your best find!

People are willing to pay way too much for this units. They are good but do not perform any better than a any better than a Silver Sabre uMax. The only advantage they have over the Sabre is the coin check and my 3D or Triple Discrimination mod beats that hands down. You can do a search under my name and see several posts on it. A video that another fellow can be viewed HERE.

Now to answer your question. I sold a Troy X2, that I had upgraded to my 3D discrimination, here on this forum a couple of years ago for $220. I personally think they are worth in the $175 to $200 range.

I have bought three separate Silver Sabre uMax machines between $145 and $175. Its true that you have to wait for a machine in this price range because these also bid to excessive levels.

I don't know why it is not mentioned in relation to talk of X2's and Silver Sabre uMax's more often, but the Cibola is the descendant of those machines. It is a fine machine, and is functionally identical to them, less the coin check on the X2.

Troy didn't make the units, just a rebranded Silver Sabre by Tesoro. His babies were actually the X3 and X5 that he had Fisher manufacturer to his design.

BLeaver is right the cult following of the Machines are just that . they are great little detectors and super 7 coil is one of the best coils around . but people want to keep or place a price far out of its range unless it is new mint in box unused . I have owned three of them at the same time and paid over 275.00 for all of them except the one mentioned he had and I paid the 220.00 for it and still have it and use it as the Mod he did is absolutely outstanding . I want sell it ever .

Barry,

I'm happy that you still appreciate your X2 with the 3D Modification. As you know the mod It makes your X2 discrimination system equivalent to a Golden Sabre uMax with out tones. The categorization of targets with the switch makes tones a moot point as activating the switch tells you which range the target is in.
I've seen the threads become active recently bemoaning the unavailability of the Golden Sabre. I never post with any reference to the Golden in the Subject line as I am sure the post would be removed. It is a shame as it is a much easier change than is the ground balance mod that is so popular. The increase in good targets recovered much more impressive with the 3d triple discrimination mod than the ground balance mod will ever produce for the majority of detectorists. That is my opinion, admittedly a biased one.

I saw one go for more than that earlier in the year. I am about to post it on here also.

325.00 in my opinion! But must be in great condition.

The troy x5 is no better than the Nautilus 2b,these are cult machines and certain people try to keep this info quiet.

A 9 inch Troy coil is highly sought after.
