Most helpful review for Makro Racer

Outstanding detector
The Makro Racer is the third metal detector that I own and use. I am amazed by the quick response of this unit while working in trash. The depth of recovery is unlike any machine that I have hunted with. I'm finding coins at 18 to 20 inches and I know it will do even better. It's very easy to use. It's very sturdy build but very light weight so you can hunt all day.

IDX Pro, Great all rounder !
I have owned my IDX Pro for about 9 years, also have other more expensive higher end machines, DFX and Minelab Explorer. The up market detectors may have some advantages at some sites, but as the best all round machine the IDX is still the one I chose to use more often than not. Good depth, good discrimination. 9 years constant use never a single problem. Ok no battery indicator. But do you really need one? The newer Whites machines, Prisim etc were not a step forwards, So if an IDX comes up for sale BUY IT. You wont be disapointed and it may well out last you!
