Most helpful review for Whites MX Sport

Whites mx sport
First let me tell you a little about me. I have been Metal detecting for 40 years. I have saw a lot of metal detectors come and go and have tried most of them. The MX Sport is a top notch metal detector. The sport ID's well gets great depth and is water proof. The sport has a very fast reset and works well in all the sites I hunt.

This has been my go to detector for the last couple of months even though I have metal detects costing twice as much. The sport is easy to use and will not leave anything in the ground that other detector's would find. I have the stock coil and the 7 inch Whites Detech coils. Both coils work well here in central PA. The sport is hard to beat and built like a tank. I highly recommend trying the Mx Sport if you are looking for a new detector.

Most helpful review for Whites MXT Pro

Mxt pro
I have had my mxt pro for a year now. It is an easy detector to use and learn. I have found more nickels with this machine than any other. It is around 4 pounds but I do not notice the weight when I use it. It has 7 tone ID's which helps identify trash from treasure. If you are not familiar whith Whites or the mxt pro you will need to learn the VDI numbers. Here are some VDI numbers for the basic US coins:
Penny: (zinc 62 and 65) (Copper 74 and 72 for indian head penny)
Nickel: 18 and 20
Dime: 77, 78, 79 (silver dimes 80)
Quarters: 83, 84, 85, 86 (dig anything in the 83-87 range)
Half dollar: 89, 90, and 91
Susan B Anthony dollar coin: 83

If your screen indicates any of the above vdi numbers - dig it!
It will be hard for me to find interest in another detector as the mxt pro has a wide variety of accessory coils. It comes with a 12" spider coil which is good for deeper objects.
I also like that it has basic tuning knobs as compared to the digital tuners found on a lot of detectors nowadays which makes in quick and easy to set up.

My only complaint about the mxt pro is that it is not waterproof. It takes 8 - AA batteries and the mxt pro is a power miser. I am still on the same set of batteries one year later. It is a little pricey, but its a Whites which means made in America. The machine only takes a few minutes to assemble out of the box. I give the mxt pro a high rating as this is one of the most sought after detectors.
