Headhunter Wader
Well after 30 years of water detecting I guess i can express my opinion of the Detector Pro wader, The detector is based on a great idea, light weight and simple, unfortunatly it is so poorly manufactured you may not get a chance to try it, as i opened the box i noticed the cross threaded coil cable attached to the coil, then the waterproofing??? can you say snap tight? Thats right snap your battery in the headphone case it's water proof-NOT!, oh ya, then the depth, 5 inches air test on a coin was the best it would do, after speaking to others i thought maybe i had a faulty one, so I contacted the factory, They were the rudest people i have ever spoke too!, told me it was my problem! nice thing to say about a detector less than one month old! needless to say I sold it and swore never again on Detector pro, any other brand or I will sift sand with a minnow net at the beach, before i buy another Detector pro product.

Whites Beach Hunter ID
I own/have owned several top of the line water detectors and am liking White's Beach Hunter ID more each day! While it is not quite as stable as others, I tend to find things with it! It seems to have lots of sensitivity. So running the sensitivity too high is a mistake at times. I have found dimes up to 11 inches! I think the 9.5" coil is just right. However it should be a weighted spider coil design for better water hunting. The headphones are top quality and comfortable. The detector is well balanced and feels light.

I do not like the all metal/disc/reset toggle switch as it pops out of all metal at the slightest touch. White's confirmed that this is the way they are. Well, I say choose a better switch White's!!! I also do not like the battery closure device... a thin rubber O-ring that tears. I think White's can do better than that!
Best of all I love the light and tone I.D. All of the gold rings I have found give the same nice medium tone and a yellow light. Each time I get a solid medium tone and yellow light while hunting, I get excited and start seeing gold! So I guess this detector excites me and makes detecting fun!

I also like its bright yellow cheerful color. Somehow it makes me feel better! Perhaps it reminds me of gold?! Just dig all those yellow and blue signals... some gold rings close to the coil give a blue light/high tone. If you want one, buy it! Good Hunting!
