Hi Guys,

Wanting to upgrade to a new machine in the 250-400 price range so anyone who knows of any for sale and can recommend any that would be great.

Was thinking of going for one of the above - still doing research but heard minelab are the bees.

Chris,
I have had several Minelabs, like them all.
However in your price range I would push it and get a 705.
I am using one now and its really good, I had a 305 before and there is a large difference.
I still use the Etrac but not as much as I used to.

My opinion. :)

seen an explorer for £380 and an X-Terra 70 for £335.

Thinking explorer at the moment unless anyone thinks an X-Terra is better?
