  1. The T-Foot coil has been sold. Prices have been lowered on the two remaining TDI coils.
  2. I always had excellent results with my TDI SL on saltwater beaches... Over the years, I‘ve scooped enough gold rings in the surf to pay for the machine 5 times over. Lightweight, easy to set-up and balance, with a rock solid threshold (even in highly-mineralized sand). Paired with the right loop it was a hard to beat package in the $1,000 price range. A lot of people don’t have, or don’t want, to drop $5,000-$7,000 on a high-end PI detector. The TDI Pro, TDI SL and TDI BH filled the $1,000 niche nicely. Those machines will be sorely missed by many surf and relic hunters, including mys
  3. I’ve lowered the prices on these, like new, coils to well below what they sold for on the open market (when they were still available). If you want to pick-up an extra, lightly used, coil for your TDI this may be one of your last opportunities... A search of eBay for White’s brand TDI coils shows little to nothing available. TDI coils are in excellent condition... All are unobtainium. Prices include CONUS shipping: T-Foot - SOLD Jimmy Dual Field 6x9” w/cover - $120 Round Dual Field 7.5” w/cover - $120
  4. Any word from White's engineering if the new TDI BeachHunter can handle the 14.4v Li-ion (Reidman) battery? I'm assuming it's the same as TDI SL and there is no voltage regulator?
  5. You can set the tone break on the 800 to Low, Mid and High just like the AT Pro.
  6. Looks great at a fair price.... https://xtremescoops.com/ Anyone have any surf experience with one of these?
  7. Minelab, how about a 6" elliptical coil like everyone else has? C'mon, it would be a huge success!
  8. Steven, I hunt in the surf on a regular basis... I don't use a harness. Typically, my Minelab Excal is strapped to my right arm and my Stavr scoop, with a carbon fiber handle, is in my left hand. If your scoop is not too wide and heavy, but has large drainage holes, you will have no problem working it with one hand. When I'm out in the surf I allow the retreating wave to clear the sand from the scoop basket, leaving only the target behind. If I'm working the surfline, I'll dump the sand from the scoop just above water level, rescan, and retrieve the target. This technique is very efficien
  9. Looks great Nakky! What's the correct OD and ID of the carbon shaft? Also, where did you get the Cam Locks?
  10. Tom, is there currently a coil cover that fits or does it come with one?
  11. Which carbon shaft did you order from Anderson?
  12. It's almost like finding a lump of coal in one's stocking on Christmas morning!
  13. I hope we all didn't just unwittingly place an open-ended preorder with Cabela's.
  14. Assuming they are all going by UPS, anyone who has signed-up for an online account with UPS can view all inbound packages, even without a Tracking#. My order is also showing as "Shipped", by Cabelas but as of now I have nothing inbound from UPS... I will keep any eye out today and tomorrow.
  15. Does anyone know what carrier Cabelas is using to ship the Equinox?
  16. JP, how did Minelab ship yours? USPS, UPS or FedEx? I agree, I'll never pre-order a detector either... Every time I did that in the past it seemed like everyone else received their equipment well before me.
  17. I like the oval shape of the F-Pulse... I wasn't sure about this when I initially looked at the F-Pulse photos, as my other pinpointers have a more rounded body. However, for me, the oval shape offers a much more ergonomic grip.
  18. I've owned both the TDI SL and Pro... As I mentioned above, in my area, I couldn't see any measurable difference in depth when my SL was equipped with the 14.8v battery (you may have different results in your ground). I can run the gain at full on my SL with a smooth threshold. The threshold would wobble on the Pro when I approached 3/4 gain. Unfortunately, Dan Geyer, White's PI engineer and "Father" of the TDI project passed away unexpectedly... With Dan's passing TDI development went on hold. The Pro model was retired and most of the accessory coils went out of production. There was eve
  19. Here's a very informative thread if anyone is interested in more details on the differences between the TDI, TDI Pro and TDI SL... Link deleted since Findmall Forum update broke all old links
  20. Yes, the RnB Li-ion battery puts out 12.6v when fully charged... That is the maximum voltage the White's VLF detectors can handle. A forum member (Reidman) sells the TDI SL specific Li-ion battery on eBay. That battery is rated at 14.8v but is actually 16.8v when fully charged... This brings the SL voltage up to the same level as the Pro. White's designed the TDI SL to run on NiMH 9.6v batteries, which are less expensive and don't have shipping restrictions. That also enabled the TDI Pro circuit boards to be placed in the smaller and lighter SL control box.
  21. My new F-Pulse was delivered today and I got and chance to do a brief field test... I'm very impressed! It feels solid and fits perfectly in hand. No falsing when you shake or bend it. It's quite stable at full sensitivity and DEEP... So deep I'm able to use it like a 1" coil and perform an ultra-precise pinpoint on coins. That enables a surgical extraction on manicured lawns. Carl you did a great job on this project, thanks! Now get back to work on some new detectors ?
