My BeachHunter 300 is My Dream Come True
In February 2012 I bought my BeachHunter 300. Since then you will see how happy I am with it. I started using it the next day and got tons of everything. I thought I was at a disco night club the way the lights were going off on my BeachHunter 300. I was getting hit after hit. My hits were one inch to China it seem like, from metal, to gold, to coins, to silver, to iron,,bottle caps pull tabs, bobby pins, and ect., and the lights on the BeachHunter 300 were right on. I am very happy with my BeachHunter 300. Way to go White's, and by the way 95% of this was found in the water. My wife just bought the Coinmaster GT last week and already started ...

My BeachHunter 300 Recovers $25,000 Ring

I received a call from a woman in Long beach Island,New Jersey today that needed help to find her 2 wedding/engagement rings that were possibly lost on the beach the day before. Although I had other plans for today I could tell the urgency as she was crying on the phone so I responded to her that I was on my way! Upon arriving at the site with my White's BHID 300 on the beach where she was laying out with the kids yesterday and set up at again we went through what may have happened to the rings if in fact they were there at all as she was not positive. With everyone on the beach now watching what I was doing I asked her to move all of...

First Beach Find of the Summer

I would like to share my ice breaker story with you with my Beachhunter 300. I have 2 m/d my Beachhunter and my V3i. I decide now that the weather is getting warmer and the beaches are getting more activity I would take my Beachhunter out of hibernation and see what was waiting for me at my local beach.

A Super Week of Detecting and Great Deeds

As a member of The Ring Finders lost jewelry recovery network I received 4 calls this week from people who lost jewelry items at the beach here in New Jersey.

The 1st call was for a Tungsten wedding band that had been lost in the dry sand 2 days prior to the call and offered a $100.00 reward. The owner was able to provide detailed information to the area of the loss and within minutes of turning on my BeachHunter 300 I had the ring in my scoop! I called the owner who was very happy and amazed that I found it. I met up with his very thankful wife and returned the ring.

Thanks for Many Satisfying Detecting Hours

It was a year ago in January, the 16th of 2011 to be exact. I was out in the water for the first time with my brand new White’s BeachHunter 300. I got a hit a few minutes out, a sterling silver charm glimmered nicely in the sun. Then came hit number two, a stainless steel serving spoon, also glimmering in the sun! Shortly thereafter came hit number three… much to my disbelief I pulled up a Platinum Tiffany Eternity ring with 28 Lucida cut diamonds totaling 1.5 carrots! I would later find out that this ring retails new for $8,350.00

My BeachHunter 300 is as Good as New

I know you enjoy hearing true stories of finding treasure with White’s Detectors, so I had to share this one with you. I sent my BeachHunter 300 ID in for repairs and got it back the first of the week. I took it out in the lake and it worked like new.

BeachHunter 300 Finds Couples Lost Ring

Returning home to France from vacation, we stopped on the coast of Italy. I decided to take my BHID 300 with me in case I had a chance to do some detecting. We were in a town called Sanremo near the French border and the weather was great. While 'tecting' at several small beaches, many people were asking about the detector (apparently not seen in this area often). This was someone of an inconvenience since they spoke Italian and I only speak English and French...

Awesome Day of Metal Detecting at the Beach

This past week at the Jersey shore there was a free concert on the beach of a well-known country singer which drew a crowd of approximately 30,000 people into one area. With that in mind I planned on a trip to that beach a.s.a.p. which turned out to be 2 days after the event.

Thanks to the BH 300, I returned a Lost Ring!

Hello all, thanks to the BeachHunter 300 this was the first high school ring return for me and it was well worth it. Josh lost his ring three years ago at the beach and just knew he would never see it again. He was so excited when we finally talked and could not believe what he was hearing, saying "no way" over and over.

BeachHunter 300 Goes Deep!

I want to tell you how great the Beach Hunter ID is with your new Super 12 coil. I have found the new coil to go deeper, still find tiny targets and run very stable in wet salt sand! The beaches have been very sanded in lately so I have been using my Beach Hunter ID in some fields and old farms in my town…my town was est. in 1655.
