The MInelab E-trac is an advanced detector incorporating Minelab's Full Band Spectrum (FBS) technology and SmartfindTM discrimination. It's sleek, sturdy design, innovative control panel, intuitive menus, clear LCD screen, robust lightweight coil and comprehensive targeting options set the E-TRAC apart from other brands.
The E-TRAC Xchange program enables you to connect your metal detector to your home computer to download and upload your E-TRAC settings, user modes and discrimination patterns.You can build a resource library charting your success with your E-TRAC storing your valuable settings for your favourite sites - never worry about losing your most successful settings again! This advanced feature is also designed to allow you to quickly configure the E-TRAC at the touch of a button to particular detecting environments and preferred targets so you can spend less time messing about with settings and more time out in the field doing what you love doing, detecting.
The E-TRAC will locate valuable metal objects in a variety of mineralised ground conditions such as extremely salty soils, seawater, wet beach sand and highly magnetic ground conditions. By using the E-TRAC you can become one of the many successful detectorists who combine their passion for the outdoors with the excitement of discovering valuable coins, relics, gold and jewellery on a regular basis.
“First impression... Wow! Where do I start? Two search patterns (Quick Mask), larger viewable screen and a lighter overall feel are going to be real winners. The choice of tones selection modes is a welcome addition. And I like the extra control I now have to adjust the way the detector performs on bad ground (using the 'Trash Density' and 'Ground' controls).”
“..I dug a lot of very deep signals….and found a Roman silver siliquae and Charles I hammered half crown at exceptional depths.” “Coin mode….This is a very good starter program for first time users of the E-Trac. In fact….a good program for experienced users to use as well. On a pasture yesterday, I switched from my custom program to ‘Coin mode’ and immediately dug two Roman coins at over 10” depth!”
“Relic mode: Damn this is a good program! This is also the perfect base ‘Pro’ setting, the starting point for all really advanced programs. All I needed to do to customise the E-Trac to my style of detecting was to change ‘Sounds’ from ‘Ferrous’ to ‘Conduct’ and then add my own custom disc pattern.
In this mode...on a British 5p coin it gave a positive signal response at 12.”
“Although I never used auto sensitivity on the SE, I’m impressed with the way this works on the E-TRAC, a great improvement."
"The recovery rate is noticeably faster. I am really looking forward for the crops to come off so I can get this on my best fields."
"I like the louder clearer signals to small target... I tested a cut quarter next to iron rejecting just 'nails' and the response was identifiable."
"This evening I've been detecting on a site where the soil is more mineralised. In fact the performance of the E-TRAC was bloomin’ fantastic!!! It banged out loud clear signals on finds ... and the signal quality was a lot better on the deep small native targets with the E-TRAC (sharper and clearer audio responses)... some of the trickier SE signals just wouldn't have been dug if the E-TRAC hadn't already given positive signal on them."
"This is a great machine and it's going to earn me a lot of money. Well-done!”
Minelab have listened to customer feed back and addressed issues such as weight and balance which is now near perfect. The Control panel and menu initially look daunting but are surprisingly straight forward and intuitive, it almost leads you to where you need to be. For that reason this the one top of the range unit we can confidently recommend to a beginner as well as the seasoned enthusiast. (In fact the only reason we would not recommend this to a novice is that experience of other metal detectors is advantagous simply to understand how good the Minelab actually E-Trac is!) Having clocked up many hours use with a Minelab E-Trac to say we are impressed is an understatement.
(Don't forget, part exchange of your old metal detector (or even metal detectors!) is always welcome. Just call us on 01724 845608 for a quote.)
