February 1st, 2013

Dear White's,

I have now owned my MXT 300 for 2 years. Without a doubt, it is the most productive detector I have ever owned. And after 35 years of metal detecting, I have owned and used too many to mention. The MXT could very well be considered the professional's choice of tools. With the variety of coils, there is nothing you can't find with it.

I am a jewelry hunter. I can't believe how much jewelry is lost on a daily basis. Weather in a park or tot lot, there is always something of value to be found. I feel I can brag a little, saying I have found over 300 rings, many gold and silver, untold number of gold and silver pendant’s and chains, not to mention pounds of costume jewelry, coins, tokens, and just about anything else you can think of. Nothing can hide from my MXT 300.

Just to give you an example of its strength, here is one of many of my favorite stories. With the MXT 300 mounted with the 5.3 coil, I started working this tot lot and it appeared no one had been there yet. I was finding several coins and found 2 silver rings. I was under the swings and the detector hits and reads dime 2".

I dig down and there were 2 dimes in the wood chips. Out of habit I made my recheck swing and the detector hits a target at 5". Thinking more coins, I dig a silver ring. I am on a rush now. A three ring day all silver.

I get up, another courtesy swing and bam. Another hit in the same hole. At 7", you guessed it, another silver ring. Now I am wishing I was with someone to brag too. This is the best ring day I have ever had. I get up and swing once again over my glory hole and the detector hits another target. This time it reads pull tab at 11". I am thinking there is no way this detector can go that deep and hit a tab. I have got to make this detector honest.

So now I am excavating. I am so deep. I was thinking I should tie a rope around me and to the swing just in case I fall in the hole. At 11" or so, there it was a beautiful sterling ring with a turquoise stone. No need to tell you how I felt, I just had a 5 ring day, all silver, three in one hole. (don’t worry I cover all my holes)

The stories of great finds from this detector could fill a web site. So I'll just end this one with a "Thanks White’s for such a great detector".
