Amazed At How Quickly White’s Discussion Faded


Recommended Posts

Steve... for one more year I would leave the Whites forum as it is... And then you could think about what to do with Whites...
  I also understand ..Even though there are new models of detector brands now... it's good to always have up-to-date information from Whites users...:wink:👍

..maybe it will eventually attract many Whites users to the forum...

Was a huge White's fan for years and owned many of their machines. Anytime I had a question just call Jimmy (Sr) no problem as he loved to talk detectors and nugget shooting.  Then  he and White's had a falling out (pretty sure his knuckle head son had something to do with that) which seemed like the beginning of the slide for White's.  Tried calling Sweet Home several times after words and was rewarded with crappy condescending customer service or flat-out lies. 

Decided to keep one White's detector (Sierra Gold Trac),  mainly as a reminder of all the great conversations I had with Jimmy. 

As for the White's forum,  I vote the bone yard

Would all previous posts be archived?  Or tossed?  

I still love my White's detectors...

I’m confident all content is preserved…..text and pics/videos 👍

I’m looking for any excuse to keep my two showroom condition White’s detectors…….not that I need an excuse.

How could I ever part with this classic beauty and her 4 coils🥺

or the newer MX7……one of the best VLF machines from White’s just before they folded 😞

I wanted to mention that in my humble opinion, I am of the belief that White’s “did audio” better than anyone else. Maybe it’s just my ear but the lows and highs (and everything in between) just sounded rich and detailed to me. Even the newer MX7 has that great Whites sound. Discrimination, especially with Concentric coils was killer as well.

If I had a preference on where to merge then it would be in the Compass/Tesoro section

Actually, I’ve changed my mind.

White’s deserves its own single forum preserved forever.

 I think they were the greatest metal detector company ever. Yes, they lost their way a bit towards the end and forces beyond their control 🇨🇳 contributed to their demise.

Greatness never lasts forever.

But I can understand Steve’s view and that the tidying up and backend work running a popular website is necessary.

I hate visiting Graveyards…..😳

But when I’m long gone from this world, I’ll still be reaching for my White’s.

I do however understand Steve's perspective too.  My second choice would be to leave the forum as-is for one more year before it is transferred to the graveyard.
