My opinion on the 705 and my finds from 12 June 2013

Many of you have the Terra whether it be the 30/50/70 or the newer 305/505/705 . I have the 705 , have had the 50 and the 70 but did not appreciate the capability till i bought the one before this (had a few)!
At the end of 2010 i decided it was time to get the a 705 and really learn it on the beach , my local beaches are mostly shingle (stones) and some when the long tides occur have sand too.
At the beginning of 2011 i stated to use the 705 and i was surprised to find that the Terra would hold its own against my other machines including the ET and i felt it would put many 2 or 3 times the price to shame in some places .

Since getting my 705, I have not used my ET much. Ended up getting the LF concentric, the HF 6 inch DD and the LF "Digger coil' for it in addition to the standard MF concentric.

For me, the 705's light weight, fast recovery, tone ID and visual ID and the ability to change frequency via coils makes for a super set up for almost all applications.

A couple of other detectorists that search the same beach say i am a bull*****er and lie about my finds just to show off , well one of them finds good totals aswell and the other is plain jealous i think . There is no reason for me to lie , he uses a Quattro and that is a good machine and i cant see the reason why he isn't doing good scores unless he is trying to belittle me on the forums, its one reason why i dont go on the other forum much now . If i were going to lie about finds then why not add Gold to the tally ? . I know the total look high at times but it rare that anything over

If you find a shingle beach that is busy then that is where is gets really good.

I am like a soldier in battle with his rifle when i am out with it, cant let it go.
