I don't really understand the appeal of these machines. Manufacture is gone, so if anything goes wrong with it, you're on your own, and there are far better detectors out there these days. If someone just wants a nostalgic walk down memory lane to play with these old machines, then sure I can see it. I always wanted to play around with a Treasure Barron with all the modules, but unless I found one cheap, I'd probably just stick to my Racer2, Multi Kruzer and Equinox 800, they seem to be doing pretty good.

I bought a brand new Troy X5 with the stock coil and the 10x6 coil,as these are a very rare detector here in the UK due to shipping and taxes etc,i thought i was in for a tremendous detecting journey,i had the X5 just under 2 years i guess and gave it 100s and 100s of hours of use but how ever hard i tried and even called Troy on the phone many times,i can say it was the worst detector that i have ever owned and also the only detector that i have ever sold.

Someone wanted a X5 badly as he had heard that they had been one of the best detector currently on the market at the time,i mentioned that i had a minter and he basically offered what i had paid for it.but driving over i used maybe $20 of petrol,so not technically got all my money back smiling smiley that thing had the worst discrimination setup going and just loved iron,i could not get back in my truck quick enough and get away before he changed his mind.

Without doubt the worst detector that i have ever owned and also the only one that i have ever sold as well.
