Looking for an XLT? Get that BigFoot coil mounted on the right detector!

The VDI numbers, and some other things, will be off with the Vx3 or V3i, but if it's the 6.59 version BigFoot, then an XLT would make a good combination for it. So it you're shopping for an 'OK' condition XLT, just drop me a line or give me a call. I've been 'readjusting' my regular-Use Detector Outfit this year and errantly let a very nice condition XLT go.

I found over half of my silver coins with it last year using my preferred coil, the white-colored Blue Max 600, a 6½" Concentric. I let that coil go as well, like a knuckle-head, so when I was buying, selling, trading early in 2019 and could notice I have regained a percentage of my right shoulder & arm strength and mobility I started latching onto detector here and there.

One that I got is a mostly really good XLT e-series I paid $235 for, with 950 coil, and I then spent $90 to add a 6½" Concentric coil to the package. Coils are very good to practically new, and the detector really isn't that bad except for a little ding and paint chip in a spot or two. It looks better than about 90% of the XLT's I encounter these days, but it is an excess detector I need to sell.

I pamper all my detectors, and have since '71, and even my Regular-Use Team look very clean and tidy, even to pass as a Dealer's Demo units. Well, I made a trade for a near pristine XLT e-series ('Thank You' UtahRichsmileys with diet Dr. Pepper float) in May and I only need one. And while I've said it before, this time I mean it .... 'This XLT is going no-where and will be around until I can no longer go detecting!' I have the 950 and 8" Concentric coils in my Accessory Coil Tote and keep a 6½" Concentric mounted full-time and ready-to-go.

So I'm going to sell the other XLT w/stock 950 and the 6½" Concentric I bought for it for $350. The 2-coil package, delivered in the lower 48 states for $350, and ready to accept a BigFoot coil if someone has a burning desire. Interested? Just drop me an e-mail to either address.

If you are one of the BigFoot fans for park-like and sports field coverage, now's the time to do it right. Those coils are not easy to come by.

Surprised to read of that Bigfoot working on a 'Spectra' series model.

I bought my XLT new in 1994 when they first went on sale.
