X-Terra coils.... water proof vs water resistant......from Minelab USA

Definitions:
Water resistant: May be splashed, washed, used in drizzling rain, or moved through wet grass. Must not be submersed under water.
Water proof: Submersible to 1 meter. Ideal for shallow water wading and gold prospecting in shallow streams.

You'll never know for sure......unless you dig it! HH "Digger"




After more than 46-years of detecting, and having owned dozens of different detectors, I've come to the conclusion that maintaining success in the field is largely dependent on three things..... choice of site, acquiring a proper skill set for the detector and the detector itself..... in that order. Research, practice and persistence. There are no substitutes.

Good info, thanks...HHN/T

Great info, can't argue when it comes straight from the source. I found out the hard way that the 10 X 5 Double-D coil is not water proof. Lucky for me the service department at Minelab fix the problem. Thank you Minelab for the good will on getting my X-Terra 70 back up and running, Quality detectors are not cheap and it is nice to know you stand behind your product, even if the owners make a mistake.

Thanks Digger.

Its a relief to do away with conjecture and finally get this subject cleared up.

Now the question is: "why doesn't Minelab just go ahead and make all their X-T coils waterproof, rather than a little over half of them"???

Where would a guy go for prices on these coils? Great information on this post. Great question on why don't they make them all water proof?
