Re: Best model of the XLT series for inland gold jewelry hunting I would go with the "E" series

Hi Randy ! (username "Hombre),

Yes, That was back in April, 2011 and you were helping me learn how to properly Ground Balance my Bandido II µMax. I did learn to GB my Bandido and found some coins at parks thanks to your help, but then along came Digger27 at Friendly Metal Detecting Forums and the same guy as digger27 at Treasure Net website with his posts and photos of gold and silver he had found with the used Tesoro Compadre he got from Skiwhiz and his thumbing up and down the arc method and I was sold on the Tesoro "C" ! That machines ability, light weight (2.2lbs.) and price were right for me, so I bought one and it has been my "go-to" detector ever since and still is, although I do alternate occasionally with my Teknetics Gamma 6000 digital, which is especially great at coin hunting and I'm sure it will signal gold and silver jewelry if under the coil.

Well, back to the earlier days, our drapery business continued to suffer from the economic slump at that time, so we had to down-size and move from Williamsburg and go East to Mount Orab and then finally to Georgetown, Ohio where we now live in an Apartment.

Now at age 78 with Diabetes and Parkinson's diseases, due to the latter causing imbalance on occasion even with meds., the BMV in Ohio terminated my drivers license, so I'm totally dependent on my wife to drive me everywhere, including the parks to metal detect while she waits in the car.

My energy level is only good for approx. 2 hours depending on how hot and humid the weather is, plus she's waiting in the car, so I have to keep my hunts short.

In 13½ years of metal detecting I have not found any valuable gold or silver Jewelry, except for one possibly valuable gold-colored man's necklace which is non-magnetic with a neodymium, but I haven't tested it with acids yet, loads of current coins and a few pieces of costume jewelry is all, so my focus is now on hunting for valuable jewelry to sell on the street and/or send to a foundry like ARA or Midwest Refineries, LLC for melt/assay value.

With the above in mind, I've been reading several of Clive James Clynick's books on inland gold and silver hunting and on page #4 of his book The Gold Jewelry Hunter's Handbook: Finding Lost Gold at Beach, Park and Shoreline Metal Detecting Sites he recommended the White's XLT and DFX detectors as being machines with "complex notch" and the infinite capability to block out parts of the conductive scale, allowing the user to develop "Ring Enhancement Programs", thus my interest in the XLT series machines (the DFX being a bit more complex to learn and use for my preference and more costly.).

Thanks much for your help in narrowing down the particular XLT models that I should focus on in my quest to find valuable gold and silver !

HH !
