Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0284-LSP)


February 10th, 2009

White's Electronics,


I just wanted to thank White's for making such a great metal detector in the DFX. I recently purchased a 4x6 shooter coil for it. On the way to my father's house one day I stopped along a bridge that had tons of gravel and dirt dumped around the footings, after a flood a couple of years ago.


I thought that this might be a good chance to try out the new coil I had just bought and try to find some small fishing lures and jigs. Shortly after starting I got a signal of a +06 I made another swing and +06 again. I thought that it might be a sinker.


I started digging down check with my Bullseye II along the way. At about 4.5" I lost the signal. I started sifting through the dirt that I had dug and checking it against my coil. Soon I got a tone. I started looking real careful and using my Bullseye and I finally saw what had been hiding in the hole. A 4 grain nugget!! I couldn't believe it. My first nugget while I wasn't even prospecting!!! All I can say is thank you. Since then I have purchased a MXT and a Goldmaster and I am very impressed. Please keep up the good work.
