Review On White’s 6” Six Shooter Coil


Recommended Posts

I’ve been trying to find the time to truly give the 6” Six Shooter coil a field test.

I had the opportunity several times to give it that test but always fall short of what I wanted.

Today I found myself in a school yard that I never hunted before. On the way in to what I would call a very large play ground area. They had to haul loads of sand in because it so deep I found it hard to walk on.

I had fired up my Sport as soon as I walk in the play grounds. On the way to that beautiful deep sand that I was thinking it had to be hundreds of coins waiting just for me I past some very small bleachers . I made a swing a two but no luck. That sand around the swings was calling even louder now.

I started my hunt around the first set of swings but to my disappointment not one coin did I find. This went on from one play area to another. Oh I’d find a penny now and then but not much I’d say to write home about. I’d walked back to the first swings that I had started from.

Standing there I couldn’t believe I hadn’t no more than I did . My thinking it’s got to be someone hunting this school everyday. I’ve never walked away with something looking this good and so little.

I was not to be put down so I started detecting again. After a few swings I got a signal within a foot circle all reading a quarter. Sure enough it was a quarter not just one but three. From then on I stayed away from the play ground equipment. I was finding pennies dimes with a quarter here and there.

Yes I know any coil could have done what I’ve talked about so far.

I was feeling so good on the coins I found so far I was going to hit those metal bleachers on the way out.

The Six Shooter coil really was shining bright when I was hunting right under that bottom seat that you can see in the picture.I found more coins next to all that metal than I found in that big play ground.

I know it’s more coins to be found under that little bleachers. I would have tried to move it but I think it would have made a change on my out look on life.

I think the people detecting before me didn’t have a small coil like the Six Shooter coil like I did. If they had my finds would been lots less.

If you don’t have the Six Shooter and you have the MX 7 or the Sport then you don’t know what you’re missing.

Ok here is a little show and tell of the coins found with my Six Shooter.

I forgot to tell you that I did find one ring but it’s about gone as you will see The first row is quarters then dimes at the top one nickel down away in the center is a heart locket and as you can see lots of pennies.

No hunt could be without trash.

      What kind of batteries ya'll use? I used to buy nothing but Duracell rechargeable, then in the last year I couldn't find any. I just bought some Rayovac with a charger, but they don't seem to hold a charge. I charged them, put them in, they showed full charge as I hunted for about an hour, then the next day only see two dots on the power gauge. I recharged them hoping they needed a break in, but they did the same thing. Now I have used them for 3 days, with only two dots showing, they don't seem to be going any lower, but I don't trust them. I just did a search and found a bunch of Duracells, I might of been looking for the same charger I used to have, that died, and couldn't find it. I hate to go spend more on a different brand...I didn't notice until now, the rechargeable's are 1.2 volt, whereas the regular are 1.5 volt, would that make a difference?
       
       I don't want a battery pack, at least not a NiCad...

      Well I received my December 2017 mag from Lost Treasure today and just on the inside of the first page is the new MX 7. This has to be the same detector that Tom has been swinging around with a orange ring around the face. White's is offering you a look at the detector by way of a video on their site.
      The only thing said is a test was done with a 8.5 gram 14K gold ring at 14 inches saying gonna need a bigger shovel. I guess to find out more we all need to look at White's video on this detector.

      Tom from White’s made a statement that the  color of the MX 7 had to do with the day it would hit the market.
      All know that we see orange everywhere on Halloween. Now with that said will it hold true on the hint that Tom drop.
      Maybe it could be what Halloween is all about and that’s Trick or Treat.
      Intil tomorrow when we’ll all know.
