Review by Jeff F. on January 19, 2017

I recently purchased a Garrett GTAx 550 after coming back to detecting after a few years. The ground types I hunt are a mix of clay, iron ore and sandy loam. The detector didn't handle the soil types well and I was disappointed. I contacted Kellyco and they helped in the return of the detector and helped me in a replacement that could handle the different ground types I have in my area. I researched what they said and purchased a Matrix M6. I have owned a Garrett GTI 2500 and all the treasure Aces. I also have owned a Minelab Explorer but the White's by far exceeds the others in ease of use and depth in my area. The ground balance on the Matrix is perfect for the changing soil types we have in Arkansas. I have pulled several coins in areas I have worked with other detectors. The Matrix is an MXT without the capability of prospecting. I have personally dug a quarter at 10 inches and a dime at 8 inches and several wheat cents beyond 7 inches. In two days of detecting off and on, I have dug 70 coins that were left by other detectors. I would recommend this detector to anyone.

Let me say first that I have avoided owning a White's detector since I began detecting about 4 years ago because I was told they are "too noisy", "too heavy", and that they are over-priced for what you get, and being a woman in a hobby that for some is just for the guys does not help either! Well I have owned 2 other top brands formerly before owning my White's M6 and the only complaints I have are about the other two brands! Thanks to online auction, I was able to sell the other two detectors to buy my White's M6 from a "certain" very reputable company" (Hm, who could that be!) and it is the best purchase I have ever made! It is well balanced, not heavy at all. You can also look at this machine in awe because it's sturdy metal construction beats the other two plastic models I owned! The choice of multi-tone or single tone is a great idea, the target ID is right on and the control switches are so easy to understand. No programs or settings on keypads here! The first time I took it out was at the beach, the last detector I owned went crazy even though it had "manual ground balance" ( I never knew if I had it set right or not!... talk about a lack of confidence in your machine!) So when I turned on my M6 and started swinging it and it was quiet I had to throw a penny in the sand to make sure it was working! Well it certainly was, as a matter of fact the "BEACH MODE" is an awesome feature, you already have an edge in the salt sand because the setting is specialized for BEACH hunting! The spot I go is a rocky to sandy beach with some black sand here and there, it is a difficult beach to detect but it is near one of the first settlements in New England and was a former military bunker in the 1800's, my other detectors only worked in certain areas so I knew I was missing out! Well let me tell you I was very impressed with my M6, it did chatter a bit at first but all it took was a little turn of the sensitivity and the chatter stopped.

I’ve been out and about 6 times. Mostly at two parks, and I've found over 150 coins. Most coins were under 4" deep. Those parks are a cash cow. I had hits for 55 quarters and came up with 52 of them (pretty good). Of the 4 false hits, 2 were large washers, one was an electrical box wire pop out, and the other was a car wash token with a picture of a model T. 5 cents and pop tops are quite hard to verify though. The M6 is very, very easy to use. My best find is a cross country race award about the size of a Kennedy half dollar worn around the neck. Older homes and deeper finds are next. For the person new at this, go to your local baseball fields and check along first and third base line where people sit. The coins just ROLL out. Good luck. 4.5 stars.

Best Machine For The Money - NO QUESTION

Review by Eric W on December 17, 2013

The M6 is without a doubt a GEM. It is extremely simple to use and has great features as well as depth. Two knobs & two toggles - that's it ! Out of the box, it can be assembled in minutes. I ONLY beach hunt, and in the dry sand I have recovered coins as much as 10+ inches deep. It also has a "Beach" mode that actually works! Ground balancing is as easy as raising and lowering the coil 3-4 times. Granted, you'll have to adjust sensitivity as well as discrimination, but in most wet sand here on the East coast of Florida, it runs silently with very little noise at all. The VDI is extremely accurate and it pinpoints like a marksman. This combined with depth readings as well as ID probability bars on the VDI and 7 tones, make this machine hard to beat. Buy one and you will not regret it!!!!

I've been using my White's M6 for about 8 months now with continuing success. I upgraded to it from a Garrett ACE 250. The M6 is so much better at locating and identifying what I'm digging and what I'm not digging. I have doubled my ring finds from 4 to more than 15 since receiving my M6. I put over $158.00 in clad coins in the bank last year also. My best find so far this year is a 10k gold nugget ring. I will be going to Louisiana in April for the "Louisiana Bayou Hunt" where, along with about forty treasure hunters and friends, we will be digging up history for an entire weekend!
