I received my detector back today. Wow,
now that's quick service. I have enclosed a picture.
This prop was lost off a running motor and buried in 12 inches of
mud. Being in black water the only eyes I had were my Headhunter.
I am a volunteer on a public safety diving team. This
detector has been in rivers, ponds and several other harsh
environments looking for murder weapons and other evidence.
With all the controls in the headset, it's easy to operate without
being able to see. Thanks for a great
product and great service.
Saturday, I made a dive with the Diver
and had a great time. A couple of months ago, a detecting friend
got us permission to hunt a swimming area that made us cautiously
optimistic. We were told that it had never been hunted even though
they had been swimming there for more than fifty years. We finally
hunted the site Saturday. My first three targets (recovered in
less than a minute) were two clad quarters and a '51
Franklin Half. That was a good sign. Included in the
finds were five silver coins, eight
rings, 99 other coins, and various other targets. Most
of the rings are Sterling and I look forward to cleaning them up.
The class ring is from 1969 and 10k. That school is only a mile
from my house. I already know the name of
the owner. I want to take it
to the jeweler to have it cleaned before I call her.
She will have it by mid-week. I love my Diver.
Thanks for a great product,

Hi Gary and
everyone at DetectorPro!
I got to tell you about my latest find! I
went out yesterday and I found a small, odd looking gold ring.
Like nothing I had ever seen before, but it was gold so that was
good. I posted it on the Findmall
Website and a member comes back and says, "That
looks like part of a bridal set. You better go back and look for
the other piece."
I went back today to where I
thought I had found the ring. I started detecting from the shore
out 15 feet into the water when I got a good tone. In went the
scoop and out came the other ring! I kept sweeping and found a
nice man's 14K and a plated ring that's seen better days. When I
got it home, they were a perfect match!
I couldn't believe it. I
thought it would be like looking for a needle in a haystack, but
my Wader came through....Again! My second 3 ring day in
3 outings! I am now a believer in "0" discrimination.
I ran into my buddy who uses a
Garrett and he said that he can never find rings with his unit. The
Wader is a ring magnet!
Found these rings .925 silver — 14k wedding band — Watch
still running — Coins at a local place in TN. where boaters play
on the weekends about 2 hours of hunting — Wife went with me,
says she wants to learn to detect???? GOLD
FEVER?? Got any scratch & dent units for sale for
wife? — Ha Ha!
Thanks for a fine
Up And More!
My name is Ralph and here is some of the finds this year
searching popular beaches and places boaters gather here in TN.
Thought you might like to see what I have found. My
hunting buddy has a Whites underwater detector that's much
heavier and cost more and I still find as much, if not more than
him. Thanks for a great detector.
“I Was So Very
I can’t believe it is November
already and Christmas is just
around the corner. I hope everyone has had as much fun and luck as
I have metal detecting this year. I am sure many of you did. We
watch the posts on the forums and see all the great finds made
with our detectors. We also read about how helpful our headphones
and probes are. We’d like you to look at some of the finds
posted in this newsletter by our customers. We
want to thank all those that have sent in pictures and comments.
We really appreciate it.
This year we will be
introducing our land version of the
Headhunter. We have added an optional built in line
probe and will also have a 10” coil available. We hope to get
this out by Spring. I have been using a
prototype all year in my land hunts. In the spring I
found an exceptional coin. It was a 1788
Vermont Colonial in great condition. I also went to
Colchester England this fall. What can I say? I was so very lucky.
On the third day I found a Celtic Gold
1/4 Stator, about 50 BC,
my first gold coin. I also
found a couple of hammered silver coins, 45 coppers and many neat
buttons and relics. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
We slept in an English home with homemade English food. We hunted
10 hour days on farm fields that gave you the opportunity to find
some real old coins and relics. If you want to have fun and hunt
to your heart's content, give it a try. All treasure trove laws
are obeyed. www.colchestertreasurehunting.co.uk/fisher.htm.
The Christmas season
is almost here and we will be having a Christmas
Special. All Headhunters
purchased now until 12/30/04 will include a free Scuba Mask &
Snorkel (varieties & colors may vary).
I do have to bring to
your attention a problem that keeps coming up on the internet.
Every once in awhile we are made aware of someone selling one of
our products in
the classifieds. They
advertise that it comes with blank warranty cards. These detectors
are used and will not be covered under warranty. We require our
dealers to send in the warranty cards. If they don’t, we still
want them to send us the sale information. This protects the
dealers and customers. We track all sales. One of the benefits of
buying new, is that your product has a warranty. We pride
ourselves in taking care of our customers. We
have a policy here... If a
product comes in for warranty; we drop whatever we are doing and
take care of the problem.
By the time this is
posted, I should be getting back from digging in Virginia. I will
be looking for Civil War relics. In the next newsletter, I hope to
have some finds to post and tell how our products faired.
a great holiday season!
Knocking Our Socks
Here are finds made from a friend "Denny" searching
a certain fresh water lake here in California. He's made 26 trips
to this lake keeping track of his finds. He loves the machine and
is knocking our socks off with his finds. We can't keep up with
Denny. The lake he hunts is flooded with people every weekend,
which is when he does best.
Wish you all the best Gary,
Hunting in the Carolina's
Enjoyed my new Diver model.
Only been in the water with it once, but had a great dive. Still
getting used to it, but I think I'm going to really enjoy using it
based on my dive Saturday, I love it and would be interested in
perhaps selling them here in SC with a dedicated website. Anyway
here's a photo of the relics I found Saturday with your great

I just wanted to show you a
photo of my newest finds with my Wader.
I found these rings attached to a small gold chain at a beach
that had been supposedly "cleaned out" by a Garrett

coin. A "bonus".
