Most helpful review for Whites MX SportThe storm is over
The MX Sport had a rough and embarrassing rollout, but finally we have a machine worthy of the White's brand. It is now the AT Pro killer it was meant to be. From its aesthetics to its ability, this machine is top notch. If you want an all terrain machine that has depth on par with the very best out there, this is for you. If you already have the AT Pro and are underwhelmed with its depth, this is for you.
My only problem with it and with any newer releases is water machines should be multifrequency. There's no reason to be releasing water machines without this ability, particularly if you're targeting Beach hunters. It will do fine on the beach and in the surf, but it will not shine there like the CTX-3030, or CZ-21 will.
If you're a fresh water hunter like me though, the MX Sport is just what the doctor ordered. I'm very impressed at how hard this machine will hit on deep targets. It runs very hot. I would compare it to my F75 LTD in Hunting ability.
In terms of durability I'm giving it 4 stars because I don't like how Whites connects any of their machines to the coil. Where their shaft meets the coil is too flimsy and wobbly. A machine should be able to stand upright on its own. For Ease of use, any machine that has competent turn on and go features deserves 5 stars, however, ease of use should not be the end game.
The MX Sport can get as complicated as you want and I like that. My depth entry is for actual in-ground detection. The machine air tests further than 12" on a quarter. As I say, it's as deep as any of the top shelf machines out there, and better in some cases. One advantage to a single frequency machine is that all its power is behind one frequency signal, rather than split or divided among many like the FBS machines.

Most helpful review for Whites MXT ProMxt 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.
