  1. The news that left me with new hope

    i understand that they may have been the ONLY ones interested in buying the company but what a loss. I personally feel that whites was the gold standard of american metal detectors. I loved the vdi numbers whites established. i just bought a minelab vanquish and it gets great depth, is light...

Anyone with any advice? thanks TB BTW the 8 inch coilk on this thing is super sensitive! Cant wait to try the 12 at...
  4. VDI's - 18 and 19

    I just took my brand new 540 out on its first hunt and here are my initial thoughts...1. the damn thing is super sensitive. i even had the sensitivity backed off 3 or 4 notches and was pulling solid signals out of some pretty nasty soil. 2. i am a long time Whites user and am really in tune with...

  6. The news that left me with new hope

    Sorry but i have very little hope. Just found out today Whites was sold to Garrett!. I've always considered Garrett an inferior product and was shocked by this buyout. Garret has done an excellent marketing job but they were the last to bring auto ground balance, target ID numbers and still...

  12. The Newest Menace on Florida East Coast Beaches

    It cracks me up.... they are always PMing about detectorists and the holes they leave...we are the ONLY ones who leave the beach cleaner when we leave than when we got there......finding these in the sand should be enough reason to allow us open access to any beach we want to hunt.

  14. Almost threw out this silver ring, but you will understand why when you see the pics

    Lorraine, you should really think about opening a jewelry CLEANING business here on Treasurenet(I'm serious!!). The b4 and after pics of your finds are amazing. You really have a knack for restoring silver and gold. John
