White's TREASUREpro Metal Detector

White's TREASUREpro Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on April 29, 2016):
As a guy who needs the best in gadgetry of any kind, I was a little apprehensive to think a $370 detector could provide a real 'professional' treasure hunting experience. I'm familiar with White's stuff and have always liked their detectors but I'm usually at the $700-$1500 level.

I was really surprised to see what this little machine offers. I don't know of any other detector in its class that has true automatic GB with tracking, a backlit display, threshold hunt, VDI numbers, a real all metal mode (that will still ID a target with VDI - just like the higher end White's so it should make for a respectable, affordable relic machine) and a number of other features that put it way ahead of it's class.

The touch-pad interface is exceptionally laid out and logical. It's also rain-friendly. Display is big and bold and is backlit with a nice, evenly lit light. Runs on 2, count 'em 2! AA batteries! And White's claims 20 hours of run time with a set of 2 alkalines. That is awesome. I can find battery money for this in no time now...

The stock 10" DD coil is a lot of coil for the price point of this machine too. Air tests were at 9.5" on a quarter with Sens set to 7. Max sens is 8 and it was chattery but in all fairness, I was indoors.

My only complaint is the quality of the tones. They sound a little 'cheap' for lack of a better way of describing it. I wish they tighten up the tones to sound a little more staccato and analog and not so digital and "nasally". Also, I'm not sure if it's EMI but at times, if you're hunting with a threshold, the threshold volume will 'swell' when you swing the coil making you think it's a low-tone indicator. I have my T-Pro set to 2 tones. But, it doesn't take long to get used to that behavior.

All in all, it's a great little machine and an excellent backup or buddy detector. I'm keeping it and getting rid of my other backup detector, because compared to the T-Pro it now feels like a toy.
