My name is Devyn and I am a 16 year old girly girl who thought metal detecting was very dorky. Until Sunday, 11/5/06, when I changed my tune. My dad has the Matrix M6, and detects all the time. I would always tell my dad things like, "Dad your such a dork, or detecting with your geek freinds today?"
But my dad would never let up. He would say come on and try it one time, you just might like it. Ok i said, just because it's your birthday I'll try something you like doing. He pulled out his backup detector,the Classic ID with a 9.5 coil. We went to a public park dating back to the mid to late 1800's.
This is were it gets good, he made me put headphones on. I said "Oh my G__, I hope nobody see's me".
He gave me a couple of pointers and told me to listen for the good tones that read where the coins read, and not to worry about anything jumpy. Well here we go. I started out and after a half an hour my arm was killing me. I wanted to quit. My dad said , come on, stay with it. But then I got a nickel reading. I dug out a hole and there it was, a little nickle. I was happy, so my my dad said recheck your hole, so I did and I got a penny, too. I started to really like this detecting stuff.
Just as I was getting tired and my arm was starting to fall off, I got a penny dime reading. I dug out my plug of dirt and there it was, a silver 1899 barber dime. I screamed out with joy to my dad, I got silver!! I told him I will never ever tell you detecting is dorky again. Now I can't stop asking my dad for a matrix M6 just like his. I also keep asking him, when are we going out again?
The Whites Classic ID is so easy to use. If a 16 year old Diva girl can do this good, anyone can.
Thanks Whites, and I love you Daddy
