      Hi White's,

I am a professional beach metal detectorist that uses the Surfmaster PI Pro metal detector on a daily basis. One day, there was just simply too much iron to use my PI. This is rare. So, I thought I would try my White's IDX Pro.

Once I got out on the beach, I was having some trouble because of the iron factor. After tuning it correctly, I was able to find all this money in three, 1 and ½ hour hunts. Remarkably, it was all done on the wet sand. The discrimination on this model is really good!

It even found coins over a foot deep. Not only did I find all those coins, but just when I thought I wouldn't get any jewelry and was just about to leave, this nice little gold ring with a small diamond and aquamarine popped out!

Thanks White's for making such good equipment! A 10 year old detector that finds like that! WOW!
