    also a person I know is selling a Whites MXT - 300 used less than 1 hour on it for $450 would that be a good buy?

    Less than 1 hour? Seems a bit odd and depending on when he bought it it could be 15 years old! (Just something to think about) If he bought it recently and its the MXT Pro then it's probably a deal...

    I can tell you I have had the F22, Tesoro Vaquero, Equinox, and Whites MX5 & V3i all in the last 5 years - The Equinox is out of your price range and so is the V3i but from what I have heard the MXT is a really good machine for just about any kind of hunting.

    One of the downside for me with my Whites machines is hunting in rain (you have to throw a bag over them and I haven't worked up the courage to do it with the V3i yet) but I have become partial to the tones and features of the Whites machines the vdi and tones just click for me.

    Chase with your budget I second the notion of looking for a used machine, I saw a T2 SE with 3 coils go for under $400 yesterday online. You need to ask yourself some questions about what you want in your next machine. I for one started with a low end machine that at least had 3 tones. I knew that my next machine should have ground balance capability, a screen that showed depth, a target ID, battery level, and the ability to notch. I also wanted it to have a DD coil vs a concentric coil and that there were aftermarket coils available. All the big brands make good machines, I'd watch some review videos and I also go to kellyco so I can review up to 4 machines spec's side by side. Do you need waterproof? Do you plan on hunting at the ocean in the water or wet sand? What tones do you want to hear? Garretts use a bell tone, minelab uses a flute tone (Bwoop Bwoop) and most others used standard tones. How heavy/light do you want your machine to be? Are you okay with one frequency or do you want a machine that can run at a few different frequencies?
