X terra 70 observation


Active member
I have an X terra 70 that I just acquired and it seems to run much smoother and have more solid ID's than the 705's that I have owned over the years, I thought the internals of the 70 and the 705 were pretty much the same as far as the processing goes, Is this just my imagination? Or did I get lucky and find a real good one.

I've heard some folks say similar things over the years. I don't know if it's a real thing or not.
All I know is that the 705 has features that the 70 doesn't, and that equates to even more available options at your disposal to glean information about potential targets with.
I guess it's all about what each individual likes....what you're looking to get out of your machine.
I got an old 70 and the coil, but I got to get a whole shaft for it, the main part and the coil was given to me, so if anybody here's of one around let me know

I have had several of both and I liked the older 70’s a lot better. Smoother and ran Nel coils way better.
Yea them old ones are nice, I tried the one that was given to me just with the coil and unit, and it works great, just got to get thee whole shaft for it.
