Re: I'll keep carrying the flag as long as i have working machines...

Brian, you hit the nail on the head - HAVE FUN. That's the name of the game. That's what I do this for.

I started in 1963, when a freshman in high school, I built my first detector - a BFO type. Never found much and gave up for a few years.

Around 1975, I bought a White's 2DB, I think it was. I think it had on-off, volume and discrimination.

Later I got a White's TR/Discriminator. No motion yet, and found some deep Wheaties at the local high school.

Then I got a White's 6000di SeriesIII. Now you can add relaxation to the FUN. I found it extremely relaxing to listen to the pleasant hum of the machine while hunting (the one thing the modern detectors seem to lack - many having a raspy, buzzing, annoying tone!) Probably found 80% of everything I've EVER found with that machine.

Trying to remember, I went thru the Eagle, XLT, DFX and V3i. I bought the MXT PRO from Monte. I'll keep that one forever. I rid myself of the 6000di, but replaced it a few years ago with a like new one in the hard case. I'll keep that for nostalgia.

Later I got the Whites TDI SL and a White's GMT for gold.

Those are most likely the last White's I'll ever buy, since they are indeed, falling behind the times technologically. Since they are made in the U.S., they'll naturally cost more - like everything else imported.

My gut feeling (based on nothing really) is that White’s will be around for some time to come  N/T

Brian, a very kind and considerate write-up.

Making memories in Lonesome Arch was a good start.

Here in the USA, White's IS overpriced.

I kind of agree, but at the same time disagree .at least a little.

Stay Tuned??? I did that once. All I got was 'snow' or a bunch of colorful lines and a loud noise. N/T
