    My girlfriend uses a White's TreasureMaster and has found a lot of good things with it including an 1843 Seated Liberty Quarter. Ask 10 different people which detector to get and you may get 10 different answers. Before she got the White's she used a Fisher F2 but couldn't hunt at all ANYWHERE near a cell phone tower. The F22 may have the same issue.

    My opinion and experiences in detecting is just as valuable as anyone else here and maybe more than some.

    Wow of all the people on any forum the Mods should be the first to suggest manufacture or type of machine as those guys have been doing this a lot longer than most, myself I value all opinions especially from the Mods

    Bought a Used White's Classic ID

    I say Beginner... Back in the 80's I had a White's Liberty Di... It worked pretty good. I liked that it had a depth of a Target on it.

    Well, at 70 I thought I would get back into metal detecting. I found a White's Classic ID metal detector on Crag's List. It is old compared to today's metal detectors. However, the Classic ID is newer than the old Liberty Di.. the Classic doesn't have depth. I am excited and go to my back yard just for the fun of it. We have lived here 3 years. 1st target said 1 cent, zinc or ring or bottle cap. Well, let's hope for the best... I dug about 8 inches to find a smashed Pepsi can... Well rats... Will try other places later. Anyone have any suggestions for my White's Classic ID?

    I will expound a bit on what someone posted before.

    First: I would advise getting a brand of detector that will have resale value. I've seen so many sad cases where a newbie bought his first detector and it was WAY too advanced (and expensive) for his as-yet unknown needs. Some detectors have a longer learning curve than others, and a novice who hasn't really decided whether he/she really wants to sincerely get into the hobby may be put off by all the effort involved. I've seen several detectors sold at yard sales for nearly nothing rather than collect dust in a closet. However, if you are convinced that you want something to "grow into", then get a good mid-range like the Equinox. Sounds like you've already made that decision.

    Second: a good pinpointer is an essential that many don't think they will need until they try one. I have a Garrett Pro hand-held, and I literally get a case of the shakes when I find I don't have it with me for some reason. It saves me half my normal digging time, and has good range and battery life. It's also waterproof. I've used a few other pinpointers but I've never found one better than the Garrett.

    Regardless, good luck. And we're looking forward to seeing your finds!
