Hooked on White's Thanks to My M6

I took my new White's M6 metal detector out today for the second time and detected an old grange fair park. I found a hand full of coin including a 1952 silver dime, over 10+ wheat pennies and this jem.

V3i Saves a Mother's Day

I thought I would send this after reading the owners rendition of the whole scenario. It seems that there was more to the story over the loss and the history of the earring than I knew ahead of taking the V3i to the field. This was found yesterday, May 21st, out in an open field, using my V3i. Her friend was swinging my M6, Cathy and I have been working together for a month or two since she decided to get into detecting, she using my M6. We had the other earring to sample before the hunt in order to get proper tone and VDI. The owner's story was mainly why I felt that White’s would appreciate reading this. I am also pleased that...

My 13-year old son and I went out detecting at a new spot last weekend in hopes of finding some silver coins. Since I upgraded to the V3i last year, he uses my M6 and does extremely well with it.

V3i Finds a Spanish Cob in NJ

While detecting an old farm field in New Jersey I got a nice repeatable tone with a VDI of 72 on my V3i. The depth read at four inches. I dug up this Spanish cob. At first I thought it was a dime until I picked off the dirt.

I Am Really Enjoying My V3i

I want to thank you for building such superior metal detectors. After several months of investigating different types of metal detectors and talking to metal detecting companies, I found Jimmy Sierra and his son Jim, who are distributors of your product. They are very professional and knowledgeable. I bought my first MXT then my second was the DFX and now I’m the proud owner of the V3i. It is unbelievable!

My Dual Field is Killing it at the Beach

Our beaches have been hit hard by Nor’easters this winter removing lots of sand. My two friends and I went out for a day of detecting. We were getting lots of targets...I was clearly getting more depth and more targets than the two other detectors (Excal & Etrac). I ended the day with over 100 coins, some silver, many old bullets & musket balls and some silver jewelry.

MXt Picks Up a Colonial Shoe Buckel

In my area of town in central Pennsylvania a new bridge was under construction crossing the Susquehanna River. I would go to the construction site from time to time to check out the progress. One day taking a walk around the site I saw where that a lot of topsoil had been removed. I noticed shards of colonial pottery lying about and I knew what I was looking at because I am a colonial hunter.

My 1st Year is a Big Success

My first year using the V3i was a big success! I started with the standard Coin and Jewelry program and was rather quickly able to create my very own custom program which is working extremely well. It varies somewhat between sites however the on the fly tuning with the live control bar makes fine tuning easy in order to zero in on long hidden and deeper targets.

Hitting the Hills with My GMT and 4x6 Coil

I went down to Sonora, CA. for 2 day trip to meet up with my friend to go out mining. We got out to the tailing piles and I turned on my GMT with my new 4x6 coil put my gain on 8, VSAT on 2 and threshold on a slight crackle. Within the first minute I got a nice zip zip, my first piece of gold then another one. My friend turned on his detector put it to the ground and it went off there was a piece right in front of him what luck.
