White's Electronics,

While hunting the east coast beaches of Florida I have been using my old White’s Coinmaster 5500/d for quite a while. I have had this machine for 15-20 years and never skips a beat. I wanted to get more serious about hunting at the beaches on both the East and West coast so I got a new Dual Field just for the beach.

Well it has increased my finds 10 fold. Man this thing finds the smallest of things deep. I have found a good number of rings last year along with a few chains, scads of earrings and such. Last Sunday I was hunting my usual beach with the DF and was picking up a few coins here and there but then BAM I dig a nice strong signal and out pops a beauty of a ring. It is over 10 grams and has 7 nice diamonds in it. I think with that find I have the wife convinced to let me buy a new DFX to replace the old Coinmaster I have. I can't wait until this weekend to hit the beach again and let the dually do its thing. Since it’s my birthday tomorrow, I think I might just make a day trip to Daytona and see what I can scratch out up there.
