Druid,

There is a Jimmy Sierra Spectrum chest mount version available, saw one on ebY today. I had one back in the 90’s. I also had a pair of hip-mounted Teknetics Mark 1’s and a hip-mounted Whites Eagle previous to the Spectrum. With the hip-mounts, It was nice to remove the weight of those older, heavier machines from the arm, but the hip-mounting brought along a new set of wiring and mounting location issues that became their own problems. The chest mounted Spectrum was sold and I tried a few other things and then tried a regular Spectrum XLT. I had nobody to compare notes with to become really proficient programming it and after a year sold it for a CZ-6a that I kept for close to 5 years.

I didn’t find the detecting forums until after 2000’s. Looking back, I think I could have done well with the XLT for my type of hunting had things been a little different.

Rich(Utah), I am sure the XLT would have worked quite well for you.
