Minelab X-TERRA 305

The entry model in Minelab’s Adventure Detectors line of products, the X-TERRA 305 is the perfect machine to introduce you to the exciting world of metal detecting. Designed with ease of use in mind, it is guaranteed to provide lots of fun and great memories for everyone in the family. A shorter shaft is also available making it suitable for even the youngest detectorist.

Designed to offer tremendous value and durability, the included 9 inch concentric search coil is also waterproof. Being a single frequency design, Minelab’s unique digital VFLEX technology improves flexibility and functionality with the use of optional high or medium frequency coils suit different needs.

Despite being geared to provide the best value, the 305 still manages to bundle features usually only found in more expensive models. The large monochrome LCD integrates important features like depth indication icons and a 12-segment Discrimination scale. It also packs several methods to minimize problems with ground mineralization.

There are two preset Discrimination patterns which can be tweaked manually, and a separate All Metal mode is also available. Ground balance settings can be easily adjusted on the control box from a scale of 0 to 20 to better filter out unwanted noise.

The 305 also boasts rapid recovery technology so one can seamlessly switch between Pinpoint mode and Detect mode. There are 3 available audio tones along with multi-tone Target ID responses. An internal speaker is built-in for hassle-free audio confirmation. A standard 3.5mm headphone jack is also available for connecting optional headphones.
