    New Whites TDI Beach Hunter

    ....Depends on coil size and even the area in Oregon. Some spots are more mineralized than others!

    With the existence of a manual, a webpage and a video I’m of the opinion it’s not a lie; however, it is a puzzling marketing strategy.

    Well perhaps you are right. I tend to use these detectors in setting other than the beach and prospecting, so those features are not a staple to most. I definitely like the looks and have hopes White’s has hit a home run with this. Their detectors have served me well.

    I’ve been saving for an equinox, but might give this one a go instead. I’m a bit hesitant because of the battery type and lack of conductivity switch which allowed a means of some discrimination, however.

    I saved it as a pdf. It says 12V! 😞 I guess a battery could be modified.

    I downloaded the manual before it was removed. I should have saved the site. 🙂.

    But Nimh or AA batteries? Ugh!!!! So 1990’s. Is it not possible to equip this with modern battery technology? One of my biggest personal criticisms of the TDI was lack of power. I wonder if this suffers the same fate? However, this is fantastic news and a detector I have been waiting years to see. The manual mentions other coil options, but I suppose they require factory fitting. I certainly hope this detector is what it seems it might be....

    If you’re patient (ie have time before you need one) and search often, one can usually find an almost new Lortone on Craigslist for a fraction of the new price. Just like with most tools, quality costs more but is usually worth it. I agree with Steve.

    Makes me smile. Of course you’d avoid the trashy sites when you use the “always oversized” stock coil that comes with every White’s machine. Put on a 6X8” Detech or the 6”concentric and those machines go from good to outstanding. Of course the new mystery machine in the video may not have that opportunity just yet, but most certainly that MXT I saw could be outfitted with such. Just saying....
  13. It appears as if I will be able to get an excellent price on the G2+ instead. I am thankful they worked with me.
  14. The ebay seller (First Texas) just cancelled my transaction. I made an offer, they countered and I accepted. Today they cancelled with the reason of "out of stock." This is difficult to believe. Needless to say I am disappointed and hope they resolve this.
