First Permission - 705 or Sov?

Post by cottlad » Fri Apr 08, 2016 8:03 pm

So I'm still vey new to detecting after a few swings on a few beaches and a couple of hours in a zero productive field. Today though I got permission for about 4 acres of pasture that slopes down to the Humber. Could be interesting.
Anyways, my question is which detector to take... Xterra 705 or Sov? There seems to be a lot more info on the 705 and I bought the Sov for beach work but obviously want to take whichever will perform best.

Any advice?

I would use the sov as it punches very deep on pasture as long as the ground is pretty clean, well done on gaining a permission its not easy round our end
