    The metal detector that started it all.....

    Years ago, one must have possession of multiple machines to achieve great finds. One for wet sand, parks, prospecting, waterproff etc. Whites almost solved this problem and introduced the MXT that offered coin&jewlry/ relic/ prospect mode. Whites hit a grand slam with the MXT for many years to follow. Fast forward to about 7 years ago, Garrett hit a home run with there AT series (waterproff) but unfortunately it was shortly lived. As we all know Minelab introduced the Equinox that dose it all at a fair price. I would say that the Equinox hit a Grand slam on this one and it will be a leader for a long while.
    I have had my MXT for several years now and I still will take it out a few times a year. I have to give credit to Whites for starting the revolution and bringing the sport to the next level.

    Yes, one wonders what will be next! Metal Detectors have come a long way since they were invented and especially so in the last 25 years. What is next??!! Possibly what some others have been working on which is a Metal Detector/GPR Unit or maybe someone will come up with the Metal Detector that looks and works as if it come right out of Star Wars or Star Trek. I would hope that a Metal Detector would be produced in the near future that can be switched from VLF to PI Mode with varying frequencies and be waterproof as well down to 10 to 25 feet or more. However, in reality, if a Metal Detector Manufacturing Company produces a Do-It-All Metal Detector, then they will have likely manufactured themselves out of the market since there is no where else to go except cosmetic and comfort changes.

    Give it 10 years. That will be the next breakthrough in technology.
