Whites Treasure Pro Review
Strictly speaking, the Whites Treasure Pro is only a few steps notches above entry level as far as the rest of the models are concerned.
In fact, it has been placed higher only than the Whites TreasureMaster and CoinMaster.
Of course, it is important to remember that this only stands true when comparisons are made within the brand.
This does beg the question how does the TreasurePro perform all things considered?
This review you will sure you precisely what it is capable of:
Design and Appearance of Treasure Pro
Unlike the Whites Treasure Master, the Treasure Pro has a 10” DD search coil attached to it.
The coil can be switched out with other coils that are available in the CoinMaster coil family.
This metal detector consists of three parts, which arrive disassembled. They are the search coil, the lower rod, and the S rod which has the control box attached to it.
For the most part, assembling the TreasurePro is not too difficult. It requires you to construct it only using your hands, no tools.
However, were you to evaluate this model alongside the Bounty Hunter detectors, for instance, you would fine them easier to set up. However, the TreasurePro comes with clear instructions on how to assemble it.
A benefit with the TreasurePro is that you can essentially begin using it once you have set it up.
The company refers to it as a “turn-on-and-go” detector. This is what makes it a good option for beginners as they do not have to spend too much time trying to figure out the instructions.
The TreasurePro is easy enough to manage with one arm. There is an armrest that you can strap yourself into to make it less difficult to carry the metal detector around. This comes in quite useful considering that the TreasurePro does weigh in at 3lbs.
The handgrip is comfortable and only a short distance away from the control box. The small size of the control box makes it manoeuvrable with just one hand.
The display on the control box is centralized and produces a clear and easy to read image.
There is also a good contrast between the labels on the box and the background color. This makes the transfer of information to the user a lot faster and simpler to understand.
Buttons and Modes of the TreasurePro
The buttons are present just below the display portion of the control box.
There are four sets of buttons. The Power button is located on the far right side of the box.
There are three buttons for the Options features, one for the Pinpoint feature, and three for the Track feature.
The buttons have an ergonomic design making them comfortable to use.
There are five different modes available with the TreasurePro, including the Pinpoint feature. See what these can do:
- Coin and Jewelry Mode: this is considered to be a general purpose mode. Ferrous objects, as well as foil, are rejected when the detector is in this mode. Coins, jewelry, and precious metals are noted, however.
- Beach Mode: although it is meant for beaches and salt water soils in particular, this mode has a wider range. In essence, it ignores conductive wet or salty soils as well as fertilized, wet farmland.
- Pinpoint Mode: this is to help you lock in onto your target so that you have a more accurate idea of where the object is. This is not meant for general searches.
- All Metal Mode: this mode works by detecting all types of metal and not rejecting anything. This can be used when there is no precise type of object that needs to be found.
- High Trash Mode: this mode offers a higher degree of discrimination. When searching in areas filled with trash items, the High Trash mode will allow you to detect only objects of importance or value.
The Sensitivity of this metal detector can either be increased or decreased depending on the level of ground mineralization in that particular area.
Features and Performance of the Treasure Pro
If you are looking for an upgrade from the Treasure Master, then the Treasure Pro is precisely the metal detector to choose.
This is because it strikes that delicate balance between being easy to use and still having impressive capabilities. This means that both novices and expert metal detectors alike will be comfortable using the Treasure Pro.
One of the true advantages of the Treasure Pro is the automatic adjustment to the surrounding ground mineralization.
This works particularly well over most normal soils.
This is because the mineralization in these areas are natural and the changes are gradual. The TreasurePro will detect it and spontaneously adjust to it.
In areas where there may be higher interference, beach mode will help to stabilize the situation.
Another area in which the Treasure Pro succeeds over the TreasureMaster is the Tone ID.
With the Treasure Master, there is just the 2-tone and the 4-tone.
The TreasurePro offers these two in addition to the 8-tone option. This means that a variety of objects can be identified only by the tone that is produced.
Altogether, you can identify iron, foil, pull tabs, nickels, zinc and Indian Heads, copper coins and dimes, quarters, and dollars.
The search coil on the TreasurePro is waterproof which means that it can be submerged in certain depths of water for short periods of time. The rest of the metal detector is not resistant to water, however.
Also, the company has not provided any information as to just how waterproof the coil really is.
Pros and Cons of the TreasurePro
- Good sensitivity
- Great Tone ID
- Automatic ground balance
- 5 modes
- User friendly
- A little expensive
- A bit heavy
The Final Verdict
Overall, the Whites TreasurePro is an impressive metal detector.
It has a variety of features but they are all presented in a manner which is easy to use.
This is what makes it conducive to both novices and specialists. The only drawbacks that could be mentioned are the cost and the weight.
While the TreaurePro is certainly worth the price that you pay for it, you could arguably find metal detectors from other brands for considerably less.
If you are looking for a quality detector, however, this is the one for you.
