Dear White's,

I just got my new White's XLT recently and wanted to tell you about my very first hunt with it. All I can say is Wow! I was using the White's XL Pro and decided to upgrade to the XLT. I have heard a lot of good things about it and really wanted to try one out. Well, when I received it and got it put together I just had to take it out to a local park I have been hunting with my XL Pro.

I got there and fired it up. Set it on the coin / jewelry mode and started detecting. I started finding coins right off the bat, and quite a few were deep coins. I didn’t have long to detect that evening, just a couple of hours, so I was moving around pretty good. I decided to go over by the basket ball courts after the people cleared out a little. I hadn’t been there for more than a few minutes and got a good hit. I began to dig down and out popped a nice heavy 14K gold bracelet my first day out.

I just got the XLT and it is already paying for itself. I have attached is a picture of my finds in my first 2 hours with my new XLT. I have already ordered my new 5.3 coil for it.

Thanks again for a great machine!
