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.

Ul-3 / sierra madre - awesome deepth
This is just a no frills deep seeker, period. The standard 950 coil provides excellent coverage on the White's UL-3 / Sierra Madre detector. I really like the auto ground balance/tracking and the straight forward informative analog meter. This is one machine that perfect for finding DEEP targets. I prefer it over ANY of the plastic case sporting goods store cheap machines, reason, DEEPTH!. Do not let the low cost of the AWESOME White's machine fool you.. .
