I have had about a month to test the SPP in locations in Victoria, NSW and Queensland. The ground varied between mild and super hot. In all of my testing I only found one location where the SPP would not groundbalance with a mono coil. This was a pleasent surprise because I had doubts about the ability of this detector to handle hot ground. The SPP runs very very quiet and was a pleasure to use. My only real gripe with the machine is that the shaft is too short for even moderately tall users. This can be overcome by using a shaft extension or an extra long lower shaft. The standard mono coil supplied was was great for coins and relics but was next to useless on small gold. This all changed when I switched to a razorback 10 x 6 Longreach coil. With the 10 x 6 coil fitted a couple of very small test nuggets that would not produce any signal at all with the stock coil even when rubbed against the coil could now be detected at 2.5 inches in soil. Subsequent real life detecting showed that this is a great little detector on gold. The TDI Pro has more grunt and depth in ideal conditions but my final conclusion was that the SPP is probably better to use on small gold with a good set of headphones. I think it is just that little bit easier to hear the very faint signals without the background warble of the TDI Pro. How does it compare with the 4000 or the 4500. Well it is horses for courses. The SPP does not have the depth and power of the 4000 or 4500 but what it does have is the ability to vertially ignore EMI and run super quiet just about averywhere so they both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Hire the SPP and compare it with the other detector you have for sale.
A non-biased test would be interesting. Wink

That's the problem Barney ' no one has done a comparison test between the SDC2300 & Whites SPP .
Lets check their cost ~ SPP is selling for just under $1200 & the SDC for close to $4000 !

What's  the real performance  difference between them  ' how much more gold  for paying an extra $2800   ?
Questions that have not been answered .   scratch

A detecting buddy of mine recently bought a SPP and it came with a mono 12" round and a 6" round mono, he promptly went up to the mfgr and bought a Miner John 9x5 folded mono, we took the machine to a nearby patch, a pounded patch on the bottom of a lakebed, my GB2 really makes the noise there, well this SPP putted along very quietly in the same ground, so its able to tame some pretty bad soil. No gold yet. But the 9x5 is the coil to use for nugget hunting, its a bit more sensitive than the two coils that came with the detector. Tests at home show that the SPP does pretty good down to a 2 grain weight nugget using the miner john folded mono coil.

I am sure he will find some gold soon, he is onto a good site for next week up in the sierras, there has been 1-10 grain pickers coming out of this site regular. I am going to go along see what I can do there also. 5500 ft elevation so it will be interesting. I am more used to desert terrain in Nevada. If he gets some gold with the SPP I will post.
