    Whites TDI SL Secial Edition arriving tomorrow!

    So new, it is not yet being advertised here (U S A ?). The only place to see a pic is on the Whites web page. Larry from Big Valley Metal Detectors said I was the very first order. I just talked to Jack at Whites and he said the very first four were ordered yesterday. He cannot confirm that I was the first due to sales/shipping issues. This is my first gold PI so now I can compare it to my GB2 for arid desert areas. It has a post grip instead of "s" curve, new coil, and costs less than previous SLs. Also, the new battery costs about $85 while the old battery cost almost $200. It also weighs 3.3 pounds with battery in. That is less than the GB2, which was the lightest gold detector until now. No, I'm not excited. Ha! ╦╦

    (That's old TDI batt vs SL batt)

    The GPAA (a member) claim at Randsburg is full of hot rocks.... mostly small. Difficult for GB2 to pick good targets above bad. We'll see with the PI. Tnx. ╦╦

    Been to Randsburg two times from NY for Geocaching. All over Nevada too. To think of all that time wasted when I could have been swinging a detector. UGH!

    With the Rye Patch in NV and Rich Hill in AZ, I am wondering why you would NOT bring some of your arsenal with you. ╦╦

    The most conspicuous change from the standard edition SL is the post stem handle, similar to the GMT. I owned a GMT and I found the stem to be rather comfortable. Then the desert brown paint. Everyone will KNOW I have the new one. And the straight rod assembly. There were two pleasant surprises.... The coil cover is included and they included the extra AA rechargeable batteries. And, at $1099.99, it is $90 cheaper than the previous SL. It's getting late so my first field test video will be coming. I gotta test and note its performance. Using a doctor's analog scale (sliding weights) I measured the weight at very close to advertised.... 3.3 pounds. I also weighed the GB2 at 3.3... not the advertised 2.9. Ok, now you have it, or should I say I DO! ╦╦

    OORAH! Tnx. I just wish makers of detectors would STOP adding a forearm strap. There is inherent danger in wearing it, especially for gold seekers. In many cases, detecting for gold puts the person onto very steep hillsides covered with sand and loose rocks. The time it takes to extricate my arm from that strap may mean the difference between life and death.... or great bodily harm. I will INSTANTLY throw the machine down to save my self with BOTH arms. Taking too much time to pull my arm out of the strap may take too long. The manufactures can save money by not putting them on. I took the TDI SL SE out for a half hour yesterday. To an area I KNOW to be loaded with hot rocks. THEY DISSAPPEARED! I found a bullet shard and .22 spent case. Other deeper targets will be dug today. At 68, I hope I can justify the $1100 cost. ╦╦
