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.

Prizm IV
I bought this strictly for coin hunting. I don't plan on using it on the beach. I didn't want anything I would have to program, and take away/distract from my hunting time. I also didn't want to dig foil/tabs. I watched the video tape, and set the discrimination to reject everything except Dimes, Quarters, 50 Cent pieces and dollars.

Within 6 hours I found a bunch of coins , and a gold ring, 2-8 inches deep. When the better coil becomes available (deeper) I will purchase it. Other than that, I bought the carry bag and a pinpointer.
