Whites Treasure Pro Overview

Whites Treasure Pro machine is the best for beginner detectorists and intermediate level treasure hunters. The most outstanding feature of this device is that it is very simple to use, and does not include much fancy stuff, yet it gives you the edge in challenging situations due to certain pretty high-end specifications. So it contains the combination of simplicity and outstanding user experience. This is the reason why the tool is good for both beginner and more experienced treasure hunters: beginners will find it easy to learn and operate, while more experienced seekers will be able to improve their search without investing into more expensive devices.

According to most users’ comments, the machine is easy to assemble and carry. It is lightweight and balanced enough to manipulate only with one hand. It is also a well-known fact that Treasure Pro is a more enhanced model than Whites Treasure Master, and it can be viewed as a decent upgrade if the user wants a more advanced detector by Whites Metal Detectors. Another cool feature that makes Treasure Pro even more upgradable is a ridiculous amount of compatible coils that enable the user to take advantage of more frequencies and other specs without paying for a whole new device.

Search Modes

Despite the fact there are only five modes, they seem to equip the user with all necessary instruments for the majority of locations and different types of finds.

Treasure Pro by the Whites brand is equipped with five search modes (besides Pinpoint):

All Metal

General search regime that spots all metallic objects. Should better be used on locations with small percent of trash.


General purpose mode, features rejection of items containing ferrous metals, spots valuable metals and small objects.


Similar to the Coin mode, more sensitive to the size of the objects.


The manufacturer claims that the quality of discrimination in this metal detector is enough to filter the fake signal caused by salt water. It means that the machine works fine on wet sand and in shallow waters.

High Trash

Created specifically for heavily littered areas, applying strong discrimination and adjusted sensitivity for potentially valuable objects.

Features Review

One of the coolest feature that the Whites brand underlines in every possible way is the Automatic Ground Balance which perfectly adapts to the type of soil, level of mineralization, and adjusts depth and sensitivity of the reach for better efficiency. This one feature already makes Treasure Pro stand out among metal detectors of the same level in the niche.

Other features and specifications include:

If to compare this model with its younger brother, Whites Treasure Master, there are certain differences between the products:

Both models have the Automatic Ground Balance technology and high-end discrimination. So, the key tech specs are generally the same, but the Treasure Pro model is more adjustable according to the user’s needs and preferences, yet still keeps the controls, tuning, and operation simple and comprehensive.

The Kit

The factory kit for the Whites Treasure Pro machine meets the definition “read it and weep”:

However, most retailer websites offer a bunch of free items as gifts, so you can take advantage of this.


For those who would like to enhance their experience after using Treasure Master, and for those metal detectorists whose experience generally ranges from beginner to intermediate, Treasure Pro by Whites is a good choice. This machine is unique in the way it combines simplicity of usage with the most effective specifications and features needed for really productive search. Although it surely has some drawbacks, as everything else in the world, Treasure Pro amazes with being user-friendly and extremely productive at the same time.
