    I always seem to come back to Whites detectors no matter what else I try. They just work for me and I feel like I know what to expect from them. Their customer service is outstanding and they make a good product.

    I was a long time user of White's machines and was very successful with them. To me, their detector line has become a bit stale. Don't get me wrong, they make a good product and are a great company, but, they haven't been all that innovative lately. Their flagship detector, the V3i, is competent, highly adjustable, but, heavy, not waterproof, or particularly user friendly. I'm sure they have things on the drawing board. We'll just have to wait an see what they come up with.

    I think a lot of detectorists are disappointed in Garrett and their "brand new" AT Max. Barely more than an AT Gold or Pro, regardless of what the fanboys say.

    I also think White's took a punch in the mouth with their MX Sport debacle, and how they tried to cover up their build and sound quality issues with the initial production runs. (Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!)

    I own 5 detectors and three of them are White's. This is for a number of reasons including (but not limited to) superior customer support and the fact that they are American made.

    I will also vouch for Whites customer service. Being three years old, my out of warranty coinmaster was acting up. The P/P button wouldn't work and show depth. After talking with the rep, she said "we know what is wrong with it" Send it back with a check for $20" How can you do that I asked? She replied, "that's what we do" So I did. Cost 20 something to send it. Turns out they replaced the button, put on a new coil, and tested it. They are tops in my book!

    White's is not competing in marketing or high-end detectors. Their only high-end detector is old.

    powrsurg, hit me up, I may have some info for you on Whites MD's, if you don't already know. I'm a White's person myself.
    My problem with White's is their bouncy IDs. My long-buried dime at 5" goes dime, quarter, zinc, and on a few sweeps something else. on Treasure Pro. But a dime I located in a park with my AT Pro IDed as dime on every sweep, even though the moderately mineralized ground was very dry and hard., and the dime was 7" deep. In the same park White's MXT got a proper ID on a dime at 6", but this was when the ground was moist and soft. Also, most White's weigh more than most detectors by most mfrs, and they require more batteries as well. With XLT, MXT, M6, I rarely got accurate IDs beyond 4"-5".

    You call yourself a White's person, but you don't have their newest detectors MX Sport waterproof or MX7 water-resistant. Are you waiting for more test results, as in you don't feel confident they would outdo your MXT All Pro? Have you posted a detailed review of it anywhere? Thanks.
