Most helpful review for Whites Beach Hunter 300

Works great when they work...
Bought four of these and within 6 months all four had to be returned. TWO were DOA right out of the box. I can't believe the quality control there.

Excalibur 800 dream machine.
Just so easy to use. I don't mind the weight that seems to bother others. Great depth, perfect pinpoint. The one and only problem I have had (and I assume everyone does), is pull tabs and other aluminum gives such a nice tone. I have been using this machine for about 3 years and am amazed by the sensitivity. Also with practice the tone variation lets me guess the target 80% of the time. So far it is maintenance free and I use it in fresh and salt and on the beach. A Classic!
