Hi all
Now I have my blisstool I have decided to sell the whites eagle.
It is a very good machine takes a bit of learning and sure gets good depth.
There is a small problem with it, the middle stem where it conne ts to the top stem the holes where the wingnut goes through are a bit worn but its ok when connected together. 135 posted a bargain.

Good luck with the blisstool, but I agree with Alun , hang on to your whites just incase. Cheff Geoff
once told me to stick to one machine and really learn it. Thats sound advice from an old man Grin
and if he didn't tell me then he should have Roll Eyes Grin

Thanks for the advice but I am going to take the chance and learn the blisstool, the pasture I am on is very deep and I have a feeling there is something down there worth finding. So open to offers on the whites, need to replace the cash I have spent.

  Probably a stupid question, but any idea what its like compared to the GARRETT 250?    Is it a field only tector?
     Ill be honest, I gotta be careful I dont end up with dectectors everywhere, did the same with my motorbikes and now I got 4 sitting in the garage.  LOL.
   I'll probably go down the minelab etrac. elite route but was wondering if it worth me picking this whites up and getting rid of the Garretts for now?

Oh it's head and shoulders above the 250 and it will work on wet sand, it's the model that Terry Herbert was using when he found the Staffordshire Hoard. It came out nearly 25 years ago now and was the first really programmable machine, a fact that I still have nightmares over lol, my advice to anyone starting to use one is...set it then cut your fingers off to stop yourself playing with the settings Grin

Yes still in a different league, if I had to put it somewhere in the current line-up then it's up there with Xterra 705, Omega 8000, Fisher 70 Wink
