I'd pass on anything with 'Eagle' as a prefix.

The 'original' White's Eagle was a first step forward from White's, and it kind of worked but had glitches, so they came out with the Eagle II and also offered an update chip for the original Eagle. Some had one and liked it and said it worked for them, but how much hunting did they do, how much did they really know about detectors, and just how good, or bad, were those models?

Then the last step they made was to the slimmer housing and improved display and circuitry of the Eagle Spectrum which wasn't too bad, and that was the last model before they took care of doing better engineering and both circuitry design and physical packaging and brought out the Spectrum XLT Version 1.0 then very soon updated that to the Version 1.1 and that basic software version stayed the rest of the XLT's life. The XLT e-series was simply a move to get rid of the rainbow decal and change from the unrepairable thin 950 coil to the new 950 that could be repaired.

They got it right and had a really impressive top-end detector. thumbs up

I wouldn't concern myself at all with any of the predecessors to the XLT.
