Dear White's,

Just when you think it couldn’t get any better. Man White’s machines ROCK! Last year I switched from another brand of detector to White’s. My first White’s was a MXT. Fell in love with it and have had great success. My goal last year was to find enough gold, silver and clad to buy a DFX. It took me all last year hunting, but the hard work paid off. Two months ago I bought the DFX. Can it get any better than this?

My first day out, 30 minutes in and Bam – one 14k gold men’s diamond ring. The second day out and Bam I found one gold 18k and a .925 silver ring. And on the third day out Bam a ladies 18k gold ring. So three trips out and 4 rings to show for it.

I also found something I was afraid to pick up. It turned out to be 10k plated over silver teeth grill. And not to mention all the clad found. I haven’t totaled the clad yet as I like to wait to the end of the season for totals. Just when I thought it can’t get better than the MXT. Might take a few years to master all the DFX’s capabilities but I’m having a blast doing it. I keep this up and the V3i might be in my future.

Thanks for making awesome machines!
