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.

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.
