Dual Field Finds Lost Wedding Ring in HI

We were vacationing in HI and I found a wedding band that was just lost by a newly-wed couple. The ring was in about waist-deep water and after about 5 minutes the ring was found.

One just-married couple from Toronto, Christel and Paul, were in Waikiki and the husband had lost his wedding band in the ocean. Christel has searched a long stretch of beach for someone with a detector and found me just heading out to detect.

I was able to retrieve the ring with my White’s Surf PI Dual Field. Since airline regulations are strict with luggage weight, I only brought my MXT and had to leave my Dual Field at home. I have a gracious friend Terry who lives in Honolulu who let me borrow his Dual Field to find the ring.

I now have 3 White's metal detectors. They are the best but the MXT is my favorite.
