White's Electronics,

I recently purchased a White's Coinmaster Pro for my wife and a White's MXT Pro for myself and have been really pleased with the results! I have been detecting for a while with other brands of detectors and am fairly confident in my abilities. My wife is a true beginner and she is hooked on the hobby now. I have wanted to get a White's detector for a while because I know the quality and service of White's detectors are above reproach!

I am so happy I made the switch to White's. After receiving our new detectors we went to a small town park that I have been hunting with other detectors. I know this park really well and I knew it was loaded with clad coins, a perfect place to test our new detectors and for my wife to get a handle on the hobby. We hunted for about an hour and both of us were getting our fair share of pennies dimes and a few quarters all of which were dated from the mid seventies to now. The detectors did really well and I was pleased. My wife loved the ease of use of her detector and was now sold on it.

I decided to let her try my MXT Pro to get a feel of hunting with a threshold. She no longer had the MXT pro more than 5 minutes when she told me to dig this one signal she was getting. She said the VDI numbers was bouncing between 40 and 42. Well of course being the seasoned veteran I felt I was I kind of shrugged thinking it was a pulltab since it was bouncing. I dug down about 3 inches (the detector read 4) and to my surprise I seen the glimmer of silver!!

I dug carefully around the target and pulled up 2 sterling silver necklaces entangled together!!! I told my wife and she was excited!! One had a heart pendant with what looked like small diamonds on it and the other had a squiggly design charm with bigger diamond-like stones (don’t know if they are real but they sparkle like the sun!!). After finding the prizes of the day my wife handed me back my MXT Pro as if to say "Now that is how it’s done now you give it a whirl". I was very proud of my wife even though she had the first big find with MY detector but now we have a hobby we can share together!

Thanks White's!! She now proudly wears her trophy around her neck to remind me of why I enjoy this so much!
