i have a garrett infinium ls.i'm considering buying a minelab x terra 70/705 or a tesoro lobo super trac for hunting in the gold fields here in north queensland,australia.i have read on a forum that one should have a pi unit and a vlf to cover both aspects of this endevour.i have read many of your posts with great interest and i feel that you could nudge me in the right direction,while i hunt in my shorts and t shirt here.blowfly.hh

Personally I would find a Fisher Gold Bug 2 new or used. Hopefully JP will show up and chime in.

How is the Infinium working for you.
