Whites Prizm 6TPrice: $600
Based on 14 reviews
Machine is a suitable back up to my MXT Pro
It performed flawlessly and I found more coins than most of the others in our silver hunt so it proved it is a worthy machine.
I love the light weight and ease of use and it bangs really hard on good targets.
Have not tried it at the beach, but I would tend to not use most VLF machines here on the California beaches anyway. Thats why they make PI detectors.

Whites Prizm 6T
I have not been at all disappointed!! In less than a month of use, I have found close to $50 in clad, 5 silver coins, and several other silver items. I have never had as much fun using a detector that fits my type of hunting to a tee!! I have found coins at 8 inches plus and love the tones and VCO pinpointing. I live in an area where silver coins are not common finds and I do not recall ever finding 5 in one month. If I ever decide to upgrade (although I don't forsee this happening any time soon) it will definitely be another Whites machine.

Awesome Metal Detector!!!
I first found a couple of nickels and a dime and even though they were modern I was very happy!, 5 min. later I found 3 matchbox cars and a quarter. I live at a very modern home built in 1997 and spent a long time searching through my twelve acers. I am unhappy that I have not got as much time as I wanted that summer but I can't wait for spring. The Prism 6T is a great detector and the only thing I would do to make it better is the screen. I am very happy with how it tells me about my target but a better screen such as the one of the DFX model would help me read it a little more clear. Thanks for a great detector White's!!!!

Tested out thoroughly the 6T
The cibola, well it did pretty good with a full 80+%%. the mark2 now that is another story as we set the signal on # TWO ( 2 ) one can get a fair idea of what may be going into your sand scoop but hey one cannot be over 50% sure. We placed each detects coil where the marker sticks were at. The 6T 60% the mark2 well it is a P.I> and at setting two it will detect just about everything, which we wanted.
The 6T in Californias black sand oh my it came out in 2nd place. As the sun glare on the digital screen is not a help and slows down ones detect time and finds the cibola did a good job, we used headphones on all 3 detects.. at the beach areas.
NOW at the parks we used Temascal road park and Van Ness L.A. city park, third street park in west L.A. near the LaBrea tar pits plus the Burbank Ca, park on San Fernando road.. and we also hit valley village park, all different parks and of course different heavy traffic & trash areas. We used the 6T, cibola, Garrett GTAx 550 and a Fisher Excel ID Detector, all in all the 6T came in at 65% to 75% depending on what detector it was competing with. So to be fair we have placed 4 stars .. yet feel 3 & 3/4 is correct.. white's at least on the 6T models needs to kick it up a notch or three. Also on the weight issue, your arm gets a workout.

Slip N slide Update We are very happy !!!
All have a Great Holiday and we will update on this 6T after we test it on the beach, we will be right up to the shore this time and give it a hard test.. and will use it only on the wet sand for the first test,,,and per J.A. reduce the Gain as well say 3 or 4 bars max, and NOT alternate between wet and dry sand. So far 4 1/2 stars and I bet a full 5 after the beach test..
Thank you Steve howard and tech J.A. for all your help.

Prizm 6T here in California
I used the 6-T first and found two clad pennies in like 30 minutes, yet Still had a host of false readings, Vivian also tried out the 6-T and same results, only she found Zero...and agrees with me regards the icons at $0.50 reading most of the time..Gary another partner with us told me in no uncertain words NO thanks I'll use my own detector.
Now I MUST do a RETRACTION of sorts on THIS one 6T, I found out it was originally purchased from the state of PA. I got it from Texas new.. and also found out I should have only paid $8.00 plus to ship to White's in Sweethome Oregon, I called our accountant and YES I was correct, the U.P.S. store charged me $87.00 and change to send it out to white's not 89.00 and change..
As to the sales tax I also had purchased two detects that same day here in California, so my ERROR is in stating I paid sales tax on the 6T
my mistake and one I ADMIT too!! When I am wrong then I will admit I am wrong..
NOW I also got an email from Steve at the Sweethome Oregon office which irritated me to NO end, so I replied to his email and ALSO phoned him, had to leave a voicemail for him to CALL me on my personal CELL phone to once and for all clear the problem this one 6T has and as of this day I have NOT had a return call..My Personal opinion on THIS particular 6T is of course mine, others may disagree.. Have a great upcoming Labor day Holiday as for me and my partners we will keep on beachcombing, etc. take care BILL H.

A LITTLE TIP

Now ZERO stars , save your Money !!!!
this time I gave a More than fair test..like 4 full weeks 2 / 3 days each week, )))))first time on the beach and in beach mode.. went over a 15 by 4 foot area, no hits, on 6T, then used the H2 and 3 hits 1 coin 2 bottlecaps all a good 6 + inches deep.
Once again the PP and all metal mode switch is YES still the same problem, and as usual I had to pull out the batt pack... the 0.50 error is still there.. This IS a $599.00 + california sales tax and the UPS $89.00 shipping charge to White's a LOSS of good money.. I am sorry to post this but Whites has LOST me as a customer for good... and yes I have had both new and used White's detects over the years, but as they have grown BIG well the touch is GONE and so is the QUALITY of their products, I wonder if the california lemon law has a clause somewhere on metal detectors Hmmm! Only kidding.. so I will donate this 6T for a church thriftshop sale or to one of the kids clubs.
Yes I read the directions, 20 times over, did air and field tests on the beach and parks, always new batteries inside, my fisher 1212 works a 100 times better than this piece of JUNK, wake up Ken jr.. the 6T, well this one IS just that JUNK.. I gave this a MORE than fair test, also with my Tesoro compadre, had it at least 5 years, coming up a simple detector and WAY LOW price for them beat the 6T , me I think this 6T is SICK... save your hard earned ca$h and buy a Quality detector in the same price range from another maker... thats what I will be doing..
Will be hitting the beach, water & sand after the holiday weekend... keep on coinshooting and stay safe in the water. Bill.h
