White's GMT Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 8, 2008):
My White's GMT has been reliable and easy to use. I did read the entire instruction book that I got online before my detector arrived. I also used it the first few times I used the GMT. The battery life is amazing, the batteries last a very long time. I live in a remote area, so the headphones are not needed, but help and keep your ears warm in the winter. The interesting feature about this metal detector is that you can track black sand. In my creek, the smaller gold is unusually in or under black sand deposits.
The operation is simple, and I found it does balance well. We have lots of hot rocks, I mean lots. I think the worst obstacle for me had been getting past them. I know this will come with experience, but I still want to dig. I found one 20 gram gold nugget on my property the 3rd day I used the GMT. I was told that someone 8 years ago found two 8 ounce nuggets on my little mountain, so there could be more. I would like to purchase another detector, one for treasure too.
I will probably get the one that shows what object is underground before you dig. I have had other metal detectors and they went through batteries fast. I can work for a couple of weeks easy using headphones and batteries are still good. It even finds gold! Have fun!
