White's Electronics,

My summer water hunting season started off with a bang this year. With my hunting buddy Mike, We made a trip to one of our favorite nearby lakes that has a great roped off swimming area. Mike entered the water first and waded toward the left side and I slowly moved toward the middle section near the warning rope. As the water rose to about chest high, I got that sweet middle tone for gold and a strong yellow light, I was sure I had a nice gold ring under my feet.

As I pinpointed the signal and marked it with my foot, I moved my scoop in front of my foot and took a big scoop of sand off the bottom. As I saw the sand sift out the holes of my scoop I was disappointed to see a new nickel looking back at me in the morning sun.

Just before I moved on I checked the hole again and WOW there was that same good signal in my ears. I scooped another load of sand into my scoop. Just as my scoop broke the water surface my eyes were blinded by the sparkle of diamonds in the sun. I could not believe I had made such a find. There was a man's large diamond anniversary band with just over a full caret of very high grade diamonds. I went the next day to our local jeweler where he cleaned it and said I was right in my appraisal of about $1200-1400 retail.

Thanks White's for all your great detectors and the wonderful support you give all your customers and our many metal detecting clubs across the world.
