Speaking of PI detectors.

Now that Garrett has aquired  White's.

 How about a multi frequency Whites TDI ???

  98 frequencies from the Infinium.

Added to the Whites TDI with it's incredible ground tracking and ground balance.

 That sounds interesting !

I would have liked to have seen the TDI in the water-Proof "Sport" platform with a variety of coil sizes.  Whites really missed the boat by just modifying their Beach Machine.

When I first started selling Metal Detectors I was confused by the Infinium's 96 Frequencies.  It's Pulse Induction.  It doesn't operate on a Frequency, right.  Then I realized it was like a cordless phone with 96 "Channel's".  There would have been less confusion if they would have used THAT terminology instead.

Sadly no, they are not making anything at Garrett's with a White's name on it, BUT the woman that I spoke with at Garrett's office today eluded to the possibility of the Garrett engineers eventually doing something new with the White's product line.  As of this time though, there is nothing but dust and an empty White's building...

Doesn't the SeaHunter MKII use similar/same multi frequency as the Infinium? Never noticed it having any benefit but it does hold a smooth threshold here in the NE.

I use the Sea Hunter II on South Florida beaches and if you like digging Bobby pins and nails like I did yesterday - along with treasure - it's for you.  Whereas, the Infinium is a two-tone machine giving you some discrimination abilities - along  with ground balance function.  The Infinium will save you some worthless target digging but it's not a panacea - I.e., not a perfect solution.  Match the tool to the task.  On the beach, or even elsewhere?   Want a factory warranty?  Then get a Minelab Equinox.  Or even a new, from dealer, White's TDI Beach Hunter.  They have a one year warranty on them from now wholly-owned-by, Garrett.  Or, even locate a Minelab Sovereign GT, but they're difficult to find, and you may have better luck mining for diamonds in your bathtub than finding the GT. LOL.  I know, I tried.

Be nice if a person could choose between any one or any multiple of those frequencies.

   Like notching on or off any or all the operating frequencies.

Yes

I will Never part with my Sovereign GT.

  A Beast !!!

I am truly wondering how it will do in Alaska gold fields with a 6 inch coil.

      Is the main difference between the TDI Pro and SL is gb course and fine adjustments? Is there any power difference between the models? An old friend might be selling his TDI and I believe it is one of the older Pro's and I might snag it.
      Also what 3rd party coils work with them?

      Looking for advice on a small elliptical coil purchase for a TDI Pro. As someone pointed out in the Classified section Serious Detecting is having a clearance sale. Looking at the Coiltek 10 x 5 Joey Mono, and the Whites 7.5 x 12 TDI HI-Q Dual Field. See lots of good reviews for the Joey, but not much is posted on the HI-Q. I guess that initially the HI-Q was only available as part of a TDI-SL package and some were hoping that it would be available separately in the future. It appears that when it became available on its own that it was possibly misleadingly labeled as for MX series detectors, and I was wondering if that is why you don't find much feedback specifically on that coil.
      Any feedback on either or both would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks

      I have a TDI SL coming in today. I know most people want to detect for small gold. In my bad soil I want to detect silver coins that my CTX3030 can't reach. I'm a long way from the beach and probably long way from gold. That leaves coins and relics.  I've heard that larger coils tend to ignore small trash which sounds good for a coin hunter. I know that if you raise the delay that this helps but with a loss of depth. A 12" dual field and 7.5" dual field are coming with the machine.  What could I get that would be better suited for detecting coins?

      Which do you think will hit deeper on wet sand?  I'd prefer a TDIBH over a DF but I'm budget limited.

      HI!
      Just wondering if it is worth selling my garrett sea hunter and Equinox 600 to buy a TDI beachhunter instead? of couars the money i will make selling thoese two detectors is not enough to buy a TDI Beachhunter and i have to put som extra money on that.Please help! I want just more depth in saltwater and think TDIBeachhunter goes deeper than thoese two

      I currently use a Equinox 800 and I consider myself to know absolutely everything about it. There really isnt anything that anyone can tell me about that machine that i havent mastered and completely already know. Its probably the most simple machine to use on the planet. I understand all the settings and I even know how to exploit the machine to get the results that i want when i want and i know how to get the maximum depth possible on the machine. I can even get a 22 inch air test on a silver quarter. Not too many people know how to do that and it is very relevant when you hunt in places with fill dirt and sand. 
      So I have been completely cleaning out all double beeps, every single piece of trash, every sliver of aluminum foil, every rusty nail, Every single pull tab, piece of a pull tab, tip of a pull tab, chocolate coin discarded foil etc etc etc.  Some of these places i have been electronically sifting wont even give a double beep on ANYTHING anymore with the Equinox 800. I dont care about VDI i just dig it all at this point. I try to force out double beeps. It just doesnt happen anymore in these places ive been pounding. Ive used all 8 modes with several different settings and I now consider these places PRIME PROPERTY for a Pulse Induction Machine in order to find more targets.  These places are so clean that I wont even have to tug around the 800 to cross check the beeps because the 800 cant hit anything else there anyway.
      So i need advice on a purchase. We all know Whites has ended production. But ive always been interested in the TDI pulse machine. Right now you can pick up the Whites TDI Metal Detector with 12” Waterproof Spider Search Coil & Bundle for about 999.95 plus tax and shipping.  I have read some old reviews of this machine and some people claim that this thing is an absolute beast at the beach. Ive seen videos of people making water proof boxes and tying it to there body just so they tug this thing along the water and get that unbeatable depth with it. Some of these guys are claiming they get about 3 foot of depth with it while wearing ear phones.  I find that very interesting but i dont plan on using it at the beach. 
      I need a machine strictly for coin/relic and jewelry hunting AT THE PARKS and other places on Dry land That the equinox 800 just cant find any more targets at, even after 2 weeks of straight rain. 
      I think my max in depth dig on the ground with the 800 was about a 12 inch Large Cent, and it was basically on a hillside. 
      So i cant find any information about the depth of coins that the WHites TDI can detect.  I have Trimes in neighborhood and half dimes too. The equinox will struggle to find those targets that have been in the ground for over a 100 years at about 6 to 7 inches. Can a TDI pull those targets at 12 inches if they have been in the ground for over a hundred years? Whites has taken down their forums and i cant find any relevant information about coin hunting with the machine. Why is TDI cheaper than a V3I? I know that my 800 is superior to the V3I because i used to own one. The V3I is just a VLF machine. If the TDI is a Pulse machine should'nt the detectable depth for coins/jewelry/relics be better and deeper than a VLF?
      I dont want to dump a grand on a machine with 10 year old technology if my VLF is going to be superior to it. I really don't want to buy a Garret ATX with its 8 year old technology for 2 grand, when i can probably wait until Minelab releases this GPX 6000 specs information. Thats probably when you can get a good deal on a used GPX 5000 for 2 grand or less on ebay.
      USED GPX 5000 > Garret ATX at that price point.    But if a TDI is all need, THat would save me a grand. I dont care about going to gold fields and looking for gold flakes or nuggets. I care about digging up the history where i live at. I could get just as lucky in my village and dig up a silver coin worth $50,000 or more as you could get lucky finding a gold nugget of the same value in the dessert or mountains, RISKING YOUR LIFE FOR IT... Ive read that a Garret ATX and the Whites TDI perform about the same as far as depth of coins is concerned. So I guess i have 2 options, A whites TDI for 1 grand, or wait and try to get a USED GPX 5000 when they go on sale after the GPX 6000 specs release.
      Is a TDI going to be sufficient for my needs? THanks!
