Anyone Still Using The 70 or 705?

Off topic, but besides weight, what turns you off about the Explorer series, my 2010 model se pro is still my lone detector. I'm obviously not well versed in a variety of detectors, but I "think" it still can hold its own with the best?
Weight and the cost of replacement battery packs are the two big ones. Beyond that I really don't have an issue with my SE, which is why I still have it.

I don't know exactly what it is about the 705 that entices me to stick with it, but it seems to speak to me, and it has a much more extensive language than a lot of other machines and I've grown accustomed to it.


I have 2 70's and a 705. Have just bought the Nox 800 and have hard time weening off of the X-Terra. They have been real good to me since the beginning. Some have touted the Nox 800 is a replacement for the X-Terra, I see no compare to the X-Terras at this point. Keep in mind that I'm a strict old home place, CW Relic hunter and could care less about stepping foot in a city park. The 10.5 DD 18khz coil rules as far as I'm concerned.
Still use my 705. Great detector still today, and I won’t sell it, it’s a keeper for sure.
I use the X-Terra at archeological digs here in Sweden, it’s my work machine next to XP Deus. I like the signals on the Minelab, and the little 6” coil is fantastic.

Really I am 68 and still detect
I won the lottery. A year ago I got to to take a $75,000 dollar flight up to Tucson, as I developed an aneurysm on my aorta. They told me I would most likely not survive the night. Survived surgery and 10 days in intensive care. But, still highly at risk and take enough heart medication to kill most people. Life’s short, enjoy it.
