Screw me dead! Whites has rolled out the new products of 2015. These are the low-end Whites TreasureMaster and Whites TreasurePro metal detectors – yet another ACE 250 ‘killers’. And they will probably get it! See all features of Whites TreasureMaster and Whites TreasurePro.
Here’s a 16-segment discrimination, 4-tone and 8-tone audio response, power supply with 2 AA batteries. Also, the TreasurePro has a display backlight and both detectors have been declared as water resistant machines. The announced features are impressive!
Price for Whites TreasureMaster: $299.95.
Price for Whites TreasurePro: $399.95. This is an upper bound for inexpensive metal detectors.

The fact that both metal detectors have been announced as water resistant devices doesn’t ring a bell. Until a clear standard is pointed out, it is impossible to understand whether new Whites detectors can be submerged in water or not.
It’s a real battle of the giants in a class of low-end metal detectors! Fisher has rolled out a new F11-F22-F44 range (the two latter machines kind of aren’t afraid of water, but it’s just words). Minelab has launched its cheap Go-Find 20-40-60 on sale, which have already had a chance not to catch hunters’ fancy. And now here is Whites with its mini Whites Treasure range. So we are waiting news from Garrett (a waterproof Garrett ACE with display backlight?).
