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.

Giant killer, and then some!
Golden Mask machines built in Bulgaria, a very high quality machine and easily one of the best performing machines I have ever owned in over 30 years, its like a Silver Sabre plus on steroids, very aggressive even on the smallest targets and at real depth, its as deep as it gets, my own is fitted with an 8 x 6 S.E.F.Coil and the depth is like any 10 inch coil for depth you can find, but hits the tiny, low conductors that others just cant find.

The disc. Is also deep, and on two tone it makes no mistakes even if the iron is quite large, you still get the low tone for iron.

Build quality is first class, the arm cup and top tube is aluminium and coated with a very hard textured coating, possibly epoxy, the intermediate tube and bottom tube is made from wrapped carbon-fibre, very tough and very light, makes the machine light and easy to use for hours, who offers this in U.S.A.?, you have a tone from high to a lower tone,(your choice),the disc. Knocks out iron or indicates iron with low tone ( there is an iron-red block on 2), this is as high as I need to go to totally indicate iron, sensitivity, even on zero, gets a depth of around 7 inches on an English penny (iron clad )giving a positive/negative, so you know its a target worth investigating, ( I use this on zero at the beach in salt wet, a little chatter but you know when you hit a good target ), but at 9 or 10 ( if you can get there)very sparky, will pick up coins in air at 15 inches plus depending on size and conductivity, and this is an 8 x 6 coil?

In any ones book this is a workhorse of a machine and was built to give the fastest recovery speed possible, which incidentally sounds like a machine gun when separating iron from good targets, I have a whites MXT pro, with a 12 x 10 S.E.F. Coil which I love and rate highly, but I know the GM 4 (at 18 kz )is more productive on iron infested Roman sites, and £ for £ its a giant killer and for 1/10th the price of a 3030.

So if you don't work underwater, then buy one, but whatever you use, this machine will make you wish you still had your old silver sabre.

To reiterate, technology has changed, and with low noise technology. This guy gives you a chance at restoring your confidence in a type of machine that you were always familiar with, yeah, just try it ,I aint lyin !,,L.B.
