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.

Just As Deep As The Omega 8000
Anyone wondering about the gamma 6000 on its ability shouldn't worry no more I'm here to tell you its a sweet unit and just as deep as the omega 8000 and I think maybe a little stabler, one of the lightest detectors on the market and feels lighter than a tesoro and seems to get best performance using the 2 tone mode, ground grab feature works well and also the pinpoint feature when your getting a dead on 55 showing on the meter and is small like the coin 90 percent thats what it will be, the thing is if you don't have the money for the omega the gamma will work just as good and seems to be the one that handles EMI better than the rest of them.
