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.

DeLeon/Tesoro Rules!!
I bought my DeLeon used as this is the first Tesoro I have ever owned and was unsure of the brand. This was the best detector purchase I have ever made as it turns out! I have been metal detecting for 20 years and have owned Whites 5900, Eagle2 SL, Fisher CZ-7, CZ3D, Coinstrike, Garrett 2500 and Nautilus2BA.

I was unsure about the single tone and pre-set GB on the DeLeon but I quickly got used to the variances of the single tone and what it is telling me. I have had no problems with the pre-set GB in my neck of the woods. The TID is very accurate, the machine is lite to swing and batteries are lasting forever. No problems at all with the battery doors. I have used the DeLeon 3 times for roughly a total of 12 hours and today I found a gold class ring at 6 inches down in a park! I have never fell in love with a detector so fast as I have this DeLeon. No frills, bells or whistles, the detector does what it was designed to do and does it much better than most other high dollar units. Tesoro for me from now on!!
