American Made is a very debatable topic, but I am still pleased ..

that Garrett Metal Detectors has the engineering team to have been working on this project a while and bring us some notable advances in an attractive product.

I am very glad to see an old standby back in the running. I like to see the American companies remain in the market. Whites makes great machines also I just hope they can stay up with the competition. I think America needs to keep manufacturing over here, but having said that we need to be competitive

I wouldn't go so far as to say "White's makes great machines" but I will qualify a statement and say that as of today, White's mainly has two models that are reasonably and competitively priced, and can provide decent general-purpose performance afield. Those would be the MX-Sport and MX-7.

We all wonder how White's is going to stay up with all of the recent an soon-to-arrive competitive units on the market. Well, it takes tome to do the R&D and then bring a new product to market. I was just informed yesterday, the 20th, when inquiring about who's-who at White's, that they "just recently hired a new engineer" who is supposed to be up on modern technology. Just recently? How long is it now going to take them to get busy working on an idea and then bring an idea to a finished and competitive product .... at a competitive price?
