I am interested in hearing from other divers that have used the Garrett sea hunter XL500. Any important finds...? How do you like or rate this metal detectors ( please compare to other models as I am looking for the best underwater metal detector for saltwater). What are the pros and cons compared to other underwater detectors?

The Sea Hunter tends to leak and the Pulse 8X is way overpriced. I would recommend buying a CZ-20 / CZ-21 or Aquapulse detector.

Christian

My good friend John Crawley bought a Garrett and had trouble with it from day one it spent more time with the seller Don Cooper of Adelaide in South Australia than John was able to use it.  When eventually it was returned to him for use there were only a few days left on the warranty.  It lasted long enough for the warranty to expire before it went down again.
It was one machine I would not test tesoro made one as well I did test it but screws that hold the knobs on the control box rusted and I returned that machine to the retailer.
Id recommend an Impulse or a CZ20-CZ21 they are a sturdy machine well made and well presented and have a good guarantee and back up.

the garrett xl500 is not bad but it is not very sensitive compared to the minelab excalibre 1000 ...I think the xcaliber1000 is the best for saltwater.
