White's Surfmaster PI Dual Field Metal Detector

White's Surfmaster PI Dual Field Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on November 22, 2016):
My husband started detecting when he was a young man spending more time swinging that detector then he spent with me. Finding myself jealous of his new hobby and unbeknownst to him, I cashed in the rings and coins he had found and bought my own detector (the White's Surfmaster PI) Needless to say when he found out I had sold his finds he wasn't very happy. The next day we were at our city park just swinging the day away. Three hours later I was finished - my arm, back and shoulder hurt. Even though I was done after three short hours, I still had found four silver dimes, a handful of wheat pennies and a lot of junk. Thirty years ago, if you could even find a dealer in your area chances are it wasn't going to be a top of the line dealer. We both had the same model of detectors which worked on the same frequency. We didn't know it before we started out that morning but we soon learned that when two detectors are working in the same frequency, they can't work too close together or they will interfere with each others signal. Well so much for that. Modern detectors work on at least two frequencies that an operator can change with the flip of a switch. For a detector to work right, it needs to know what kind of soil it is hunting (in other words it needs to be ground balanced.) With older machines ground balancing was difficult. Today a lot of the machines you can just turn on and start hunting, the manufacturer has preset the machine.
