Does anyone know the name of the new detector (prizm ????) thats comming out or is out?
I think you are referring to the Coinmaster GT. Whites has it up on their website now. They have also come out with two new sets of headphones. Jeff

I've never been much of a Whites fan, but I like the features the Coinmaster GT has. Like the Discovery SST Treasure Baron and Newforce CS-5ZX it has the option of single tone or 9 tone audio and auto ground balance, and the $399.99 price isn't bad at all. If it came standard with an 8 inch coil instead of a 9 inch I would seriously consider buying one.
Have heard from a couple of people who field tested this detector that it is had pretty good depth.....

Two guys here in town bought Coinmaster Pro's. For the price (I think they're $229 from some online dealers but they paid $279 to a local dealer, if 40 miles away can be called local), they work well and get good depth. I hunted with one of the guys, Tommy Minich, who was using his Coinmaster Pro and he dug a couple of dimes that were in the 8 inch range my Tesoro Golden µMax with an X2 7 inch coil couldn't see. The Pro's have three tone audio, and the weight is about the same as the Golden µMax but they feel heavier. They, and the $179 Coinmasters, also have 9 inch coils. That may be why they felt heavier than the Golden.

JB I had 2 of the 6T detectors ,they were eratic and noisy. bought another one to see if it was just the one I bought but both were nervous. Wonder if they are the same thing as there was a coinmaster pro and a 5G and then a 6T, Thought they just colored a 6T and called it the new name.I liked the Prizm 5 the best as it had 3 tone VCO on it. looks like they took it off the coinmaster pro as just had one .I've used all of them and liked the prizm 5 the best.

By the way there is a small screw on the back at the top to set the grn bal on a prizm 5.
