  1. When I got this detector in 92 from Kellyco it was the top line of White’s . My cost was 725.00 and for the time that was a lot to pay for a detector. Well this morning I got it out and put batteries in it and it came alive just like it did back in 92 . I ran soon test to see if everything is still working and at the same time I’m thinking why I put this aside. I’ve said this in the past those who had the Eagle and wanted to up grade to the Eagle ll White’s would. I’m not sure of the cost but it was around a 125.00 . I believe this was the only time White’s offered doing that.
  2. Hello. I just did a forum search but this ended up with a useless result. My question for the long time White's users is, is there more than one software version for the XLT Spectrum E-Series detector? Just read somewhere in the net there was a 1.0 and a 1.1 version. Is this correct?
  3. New to the forum. 5900 Di SL Pro black: What I know: Operates at roughly 6.5 kHz; Has reliable/powerful "manual" Ground Balancing; Is easy to adjust and trust (If you take the time to learn the ins and outs); Likes to swing and loves to send its signal deep; Can discriminate and eliminate with the best of detectors. What I do not know: Date of manufacture and how many years they made the 5900 Di SL Pro (Black), What the Di means, What the SL means. So, my questions are for those that know are, 1) what is the date of manufacture and how many years they made the 5900 Di S

  5. Of all the different types of metal detectors, the two box is the oldest(?) but also one of the least used. Defintitely a detector for special situations, but with a couple possible exceptions, for the proper situation it's the best choice for the job. I'm aware of two standalone models still available new -- Fisher Gemini-3 and White's TM808. Garrett's Treasure Hound (see P. 43 of their latest catalog) and apparently a new kid on the block are attachments for specific standard (control unit + shaft + single coil housing) detectors. In particular what has me wondering (and confused
  6. My first metal detector in 1972 was a White's Coinmaster 4. I became a White's dealer in 1976. Over the years I owned the following: White's Beachhunter ID, White's Coinmaster IV, White's Coinmaster V Supreme, White's DFX, White's Goldmaster, White's Goldmaster II, White's Goldmaster V/SAT, White's Goldmaster 3, White's Goldmaster 4/B, White's Goldmaster 24K, White's GMT, White's M6, White's MXT, White's MX Sport, White's Surfmaster II, White's Surf PI, White's Surf PI Pro, White's Surf PI Dual Field, White's Sierra Pulse Pro, White's TDI, White's TDI SL, White's Vision, White's V3i
  7. Not sure if I should classify this machine as an antique, perhaps classic analogue fits best. It seems to have some following in the USA, but in Australia it is a rare beast. My first Whites was a blue box 6000 series that swallowed a lot of batteries and was more than heavy. For better or worse I ran in on GEB MAX most of the time. It punched deep and performed well. Built to last, the 6000 series still show up here and there. The MInelab Pi revolution was well on its way when the XL Pro appeared and so it never gained many followers downunder. Years after getting an MXT I noticed the XL
  8. As mentioned in one of my earlier posts and as much as I love my TDIBH........the coil at 12” diameter is just too big in my generally rough ocean conditions....the swell and waves knock it around too much and with zero visibility due to stirred up sand and white water.......anyhow I have managed to secure myself an unused (outdoors) Whites’s Surf Pi Pro that a very nice person called Eric Foster currently owns. It’s had a few changes too by Eric. The unit will be outfitted with a recently hand made coil by Eric......a 10” centre mount / 3 spoke coil (Full epoxy fill so no buoyancy proble
  9. I saw a White's High Sierra metal detector the other day for sale. I've never hear of that one. Looks like a very deep searching detector with no discrimination.
  10. Also called RF detectors and depth multipliers. Invented in the 1930's by Gerhard Fisher (founder of Fisher Research Labs, now part of the First Texas conglomerate), this type of detector seems to not have changed much in operating characteristics in 80+ years. From what I've found there are still three competing models in production: Fisher's current Gemini-3 model (now 30 years old) https://www.detectorprospector.com/metal-detector-database/fisher-gemini-3-r27/, Garrett's Treasure Hound Eagle Eye Depth Multiplier (quite a mouthful) which is an add-on to their aging GTI 2500 standard style

  17. White's is finally getting serious about giving the other guys some decent competition in the low end of the marketplace. I think it is safe to say the Prizm series never had much impact. The new units are running in the classic coin detector frequency range of 7.8 kHz so they have no serious application as nugget detectors but will be of interest for those looking for a good entry level machine. Nice and light at only 3 lbs running off only two AA batteries and a big easy to see screen. And kind of fun that they resurrected the old Treasuremaster name. I am tired of detector names that are ei
  18. I was just wondering ,if it’s something out there that you would or wish White’s had to offer you as their customer ? White’s have a waterproof pinpointer or just a land one . It has a VLF waterproof detector and lots of land detectors.It has one TDI PI detector and it’s a land only. Do you see the same void I see that White’s needs to fill ? I can’t say how receptive people would be to another waterproof PI detector. When I got mine ( say what it is ) land TDI I never dug so deep for a single coin before. I wanted to get nearer to the water but I knew with one wave it would be
  19. Steve, It is funny you say about a BFO machine late last year I bought an old Whites 5900 Di Pro Plus that had never been used, the owner had bought it and put it in his loft and then bought a waterproof detector so this one got forgotten about, anyways I bought it and I put batteries in it and fired it up and It has brutal power and it has a threshold that is even better than the TDI SL, I tested it and you can ground balance highly magnetic ground and if it still makes the threshold waver slightly you can adjust the Disc and knock it out all together, When it comes to power what modern
  20. Hello i have this artifact metal detector (66TR) from White electronics. but i need help with the search coil pinout diagram i have 5 colored wires ( Gray = 12v , Black = GND , yellow , blue , brown ) can anyone help me determining what are those wires for excatly if i had to make my own coil head because the old one is lost and i cant order another one online because my country restrict using metal detectors. i'm newbie with such advanced detectors, but i'm sure i can make my own if someone guided me through this.

  21. Looks like whites xventure kids detector is being sold on ebay. Neat idea for christmas for children and grandkids to start to learn to hunt with. http://www.ebay.com/itm/White-s-XVenture-Kid-s-Metal-Detector-800-0348/142271187819?
  22. I would like to know which appropriate and best all purposes detectors and especially for depth , I live in north Africa, a lot of treasure.. Many civilizations were here: romans, vandals, Berbers, Byzantines...and much more, I will be waiting your answers guys.
  23. Picked up a new White's Treasure Pro for my wife Carla. Very happy with the quality and simplicity of the unit. For 360.00 shipped you can't go wrong, it's light, has auto ground tracking or lock track, backlight display and a 10"DD coil and takes 2 AA batteries . I was playing with it yesterday and it is pretty impressive. Dime at 7" Quarter at 8" not an issue. And no how do I .......this again from Carla! Every ones happy.
  24. Is it ok if I make a new thread about the White's DR-PRO? If not please delete. Figured people might want to discuss this new product from White's Electronics. Will be releasing the announce video at 1pm PST today (just got approval to do so). I'll post a link then for all to see.
  25. White's applied for a trademark called XVENTURE. I don't know just what it's all about. .MD-Hunter had it on their site. Talk was maybe something new in metal detectors from White's for 2016. The odd thing is when I went back to take another look it was gone. ???????? Chuck
