An Affordable Way to Become a Detectorist 

New X-TERRA PRO offers modern technology in a durable, waterproof, and affordable package

Chicago, IL (April 26, 2023) – Its technical rugged good looks aren’t by accident. It’s that kind of detector – durable, full-of-features, and, yes, waterproof… If you’ve been intrigued by the burgeoning outdoor activity of treasure hunting, but haven’t yet stepped in the ring, now’s the time to join the growing crowd.

Minelab, the international leader in metal detection, proudly introduces the X-TERRA PRO. Priced to be a gateway into the sport, the X-TERRA PRO offers more for the money than any metal detector, ever.

Topping the list of attributes is simplicity. The X-TERRA PRO was engineered to be easily operated, while still providing the technical edge Minelab is known for. And that advanced simplicity begins with preset Search Modes that instantly operate on frequencies best suited for specific environments, to include parks, fields, and beaches. In fact, each of those terrains offer two unique settings within, to further accommodate specifically what’s under your feet. And when it’s time to take control of your own detecting destiny, Minelab’s exclusive PRO-SWITCH™ technology turns over the reins so you can switch frequencies from 5, 8, 10, and 15 kHz, and detect even deeper.

The X-TERRA PRO’s large, backlit, LCD screen displays easily identified icons for each Search Mode. Moreover, the screen reveals other important intelligence like signal strength, frequency, battery power, volume, and more. More seasoned hunters can refine settings quickly and easily, too. 

The soft-touch button array located below the screen is equally as straightforward. Quick button pushes let the user adjust frequency and sensitivity, change terrain settings, employ an All Metal Shortcut, pinpoint targets, and more.   

With multiple tone audio options, the sound of treasure has never been clearer — X-TERRA PRO’s advanced audio means you’ll not only ‘hear’ if a target is trash or treasure, but you’ll also be able to gauge its size and depth simply by listening. Enjoy the crystal-clear audio with in-built Speaker (included) or lightning-fast low latency wireless headphones, wired headphones, and waterproof headphones – all compatible and available Minelab accessories. 

The daylight may have ended, but that doesn’t mean your hunt has to — with control pod flashlight, red backlight display, backlit keypad, and handgrip vibration you can power on long after the sun has gone.

Feel free to detect creek beds and those shallow tidal waters because the X-TERRA PRO is fully waterproof down to 16-feet (5 meters). So not only can you detect underwater, but you’re also protected in rain and if by chance the detector takes an unexpected dunk in the drink. 

Quite frankly, X-TERRA PRO dominates at the beach and a dedicated Beach Mode handles the most difficult saltwater conditions.

And because Minelab is committed to leading the pack for performance and support, the X-TERRA PRO is backed by Minelab’s global network and has up a to 3-year warranty.

X-TERRA PRO offers an array of waterproof coils and is compatible with V12X™ 12″x 9″ Elliptical Double-D (included), V8X™ 8″x5″ Elliptical Double-D, and V10X™ 10″x7″ Elliptical Double-D coils (accessory) so you’ll be prepared for any terrain. X-TERRA PRO is also compatible with all EQUINOX® series coils.
