Most helpful review for Whites MX5

Mx5 very nice!!
Whites newest detector based on the mxt platform. I really like this detector.
Things I like:
It has all the qualities of the mxtpro but in a fully digital design. Its ability to go deep with good vdi. Simple to use yet enough different settings to please most anyone. Lightening fast response makes it great in trashy areas. The mx5 is very very good at finding good targets in the rusty nail infested yards. It also uses all of the eclipse coils.Its lighter and feels very comfortable.

The things that I'm OK with but could be better:
The coil connection kinda tight. That's about it. So many good features and it performs so well makes the mx5 one of my favorite detectors.

Whites Classic ID 5
I bought this machine several years ago. The average depth of coins it finds is around 6 inches. So far my best finds are several old wheat pennies, a 1901 indian head penny and a 1942 walking liberty hlf dollar and a 1940 mercury dime.
However if u are looking for the old stuff i would suggest a minelab in the 600 to 700 dollar price range.
