Dear White’s!

About six years ago, I sent for a catalog and $50 coupon from White's, and researched your detectors, but never followed through. Even twenty-five years ago as a kid I thought it would be really neat to have a detector, but it never came to be.

Sometime in early 2006, my girlfriend and I started talking about buying a detector, after seeing a White's ad and watching several "treasure-hunting" shows. I love to go scavenging for can deposits and gem mining with my 4 year old son, so I decided finally it was time to buy a detector, and it HAD to be a White's.

This Christmas, my parents and my three sisters gave me $240 in gift cards to the Kittery Trading Post, in Kittery, ME, so I could buy my Prizm III. I ended up buying a Prizm II on sale, and a sand sifter, with change to spare! I figured I didn't need Depth indication for the price difference, since the detector only reads as deep as it is wide...I thought. In fact, I can attest to the Prizm II giving accurate readings as deep as 16" in packed sand!

I live about 400' from Old Orchard Beach, ME. Within five minutes of taking the Prizm II out of the box, my girlfriend and I got our very first indication on the preset sensitivity and discrimination. The screen showed a medium ring/tab/penny. After fifteen minutes of digging and scanning, she said, "There's NOTHING in this hole". Then I saw it.

What amounts to a several-carat, emerald cut clear stone, with a .33ish carat triangle cut clear stone either side in a silver setting. You've never seen two idiots jumping up and down and screaming on the freezing cold empty beach at eleven o'clock at night like we were!

Literally five minutes out of the box we got the indication and in twenty minutes we were sitting at home drinking coffee, with a shiny old ring!! I've told EVERYBODY. And I told them not to buy ANYTHING but a White's!!!

You guys rule,

Jeffrey \& Amy
