Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0293)


January 1st, 2011
     Dear White's,

Just wanted to take a quick minute to thank you for making the best machines out there! I have been metal detecting off and on for the past 17 years but have really gotten serious (read as addicted!) to the sport during the last two. I own two of your machines: an M6 for land and a BHID for the water. With gold prices rising the way that they are I have been concentrating mainly on that over the past 12 months. Here is my take:

M6
Being derived from a gold machine this detector certainly has a nose for the yellow stuff. Since acquiring my M6 2 years ago I finally found my first gold ring on land. That day was followed by 5 more just like it! All of the finds were between 1 and 4 inches deep at public sporting complexes. The M6 has a way of letting me know what's junk and what's not. It matters not if it's a ring or pendant; the tones are so much richer over a piece of gold!

BHID
This season your Beach Hunter ID yielded me the find of a lifetime!! I was detecting in about 4 and a half feet of water when I received a solid midtone 'gold' response in my headphones. The target took 3 large scoops to bring to the surface---it was deep in the muck. I shook the scoop clean in the water and there it was resting in between a bunch of shells. When I first saw it my initial response was 'that it had to be fake because it is too big'. I didn't even take it to a jeweler's for a week. When I did, I quickly found out that ALL 33 rocks were genuine diamonds set in 10k gold! Value: around $7000.

Thanks again and keep making the world's best!

Sincerely,

John (PA)
