Most helpful review for Whites MX5Mx5 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.

This is a good detector, and it's what I currently use. I've had it about 1 year, and bought it used on eBay. I did have a short in the coil, which Tesoro promptly serviced for me. This detector takes quite a bit of time and practice to get used to, as it's a single-tone discriminator. It's the only detector that I've found gold with, but you've gotta be willing to dig the pulltabs.
With all my detectors, the 4" coil is a must-have accessory, as the stock coil is only used at the beach. I also use the widescan coil, while expensive, can work great in the right conditions.
