    Which White?

    Newbie to this site not MDing.

    Need a White recommendation.
    A little history of me.

    I am a semi amateur MD user.
    I am looking for mostly a coin machine 90% for around homes, fields and occasional beaches 10% "non-salt"
    What do you recommend?
    I do like digital readouts, even partially, and light weight.

    I have a Tesoro Tigershark but I do not think it goes deep, and is a little low in volume for me, Icannot detach phones to get a different one. I am going to sell it or trade it in.

    Actually I' ve been thinking of the White Coinmaster Pro for my uses, or the MXT much more $$ though ------comments?
    I am sure you know even the lower priced ones come close to performance then the higher prices ones, but without the bells and whistles.
    Only thing I like better that White is the Teroso lifetime warranty, still thought I am leaning on going to the White brand.
    My Max $$ is about 1K.

    Thanks!!!

    The MXT would be a much better choice. Better selection of coils available and can hunt just about any ground conditions.

    Mxt all the way. You can get a used one for +/-500. I have it and I like it a lot. Weight is no issue since it is extremely well balanced so you just don't feel the weight.

    I'm with what the others have stated..MXT would be a great choice....Who needs a lifetime warranty when you have Whites customer service. They are great folks.

    The MXT with the D2 coil does great for those really deep coins, those wisper signals are the deep old stuff in pounded parks I still find deep silver dimes,wheats, and sometimes a really deep IH.

    That depends on your funds. They are the same machine but the pro has the backlight and seven tones. Other than that they are identical.

    The Pro comes with a large coil too that is to large for most hunting conditions so you'd need to buy a smaller coil anyway. As for the Tiger Shark not being loud enough, have you turned up the Volume and Threshold Volume controls inside the case? The New Outlaw by Tesoro might be your cup of tea as it has zero motion pinpoint unlike the MXT. But you won't get a meter that would lie to you anyway. Besides you get three coils too and the warranty which is free fix up for life.

    Got it!!
    I just got the MXT PRO/w 9.5 coil.

    My dealer had a Pro model BUT he said quite a few of his customers said the 12 " is too big so he customed orders "routinely" a Pro with the 9.5 inch coil, and this is what I got.
    I traded in my Tesoro Tigershark, got a fair price for it and away I went.
    Much too hard to dig though around here, no rain, rock hard dirt. I'll just play with it and get used to it, maybe go to beach "non-salt" and kick some sand.
    Thanks to all for your help.
    Any tips with the MXT would be welcomed!!

    Forgot--Dealer DID say a double D 10" coil would complete my unit, BUT 250.00 too high right now..

    Id you are going to get a DD get the 10x6DD it is just great. Anyway congratulations on your new detector I am sure you are going to love it. I do. As for the tips on this detector I suggest you go an buy the book MXT EDGE, it is amazing what you can learn to do with just the few adjustments this detector has. When I fist bought the detector I thought " this detector is very simple, just 3 knobs and 3 switches" well after starting reading the book I understood the potential of the MXT, it can do many things very well, and it can keep up or even outperform Top of line detectors. Buy the book and see for yourself...
    BTW I Know that yours is the PRO and not the regular MXT but the book will teach you many things and the detectors aren't all that different.
