X-Terra 705 Gold vs Nokta Fors gold

Is one of these any better than the other for nugget hunting or are they about the same?  How do they stack up to the GMT? Any input appreciated as always. Thanks

Owned a GMT for years, great gold machine, especially versatile with several size coils :black_knight_standing:Never swung a Nokta. Tried a 705 for a few hours, it did not impress :idunno:

It will be a while before they are for sale used, just because it is a good detector for recovering gold, person what owns it still has to find the gold spot first :old: Then having good equipment is the best way to go. Never seen a detector yet that I could let go and would fetch me up some nuggets :Just_Cuz_06: So there will be used ones around in a spell. Get good with what ya ya got and wait.... If you were or are military the GM 1000 is 679.15 at Nugget Shooter with lessons and a lucky hat :ya:

I have hunted a lot with my 705 and it has NEVER found anything.  I know it has been over gold.  An example drywashing in a wash with dirt on inch or two deep, I pulled a .3 gram nugget from the drywasher I had been over plenty of times with the exterra.  Makes me think how much other gold that thing was over without detecting it.  Also, for the local soil, it becomes very sensitive to hot rocks, to the point that I can't detect a lot of places.

I did see it pull gold out of the ground on the Gold Fever show.  The co-host detected with that and she pulled gold out.

I can't speak to the other detector, but if I had a good deal on an Exterra, I would not buy it and wait until I could get a Gold Monster.
