Todd, about those MXT models.

October 17, 2020 09:03AM avatar
The original MXT is an E Series and the MXT 300 is the very same detector, they only used 302 describe the search coil it came with.

From the basic MXT they made the simple coin hunting M6, which is also a very good detector, only lacking some of the adjustment features and an all-metal mode.

Then came my favorite of the series, The MXT Pro. I like the addition of the backlight, the tone mode switch, and the ground grab all Bing position under the display. It was still the same basic MXT but enhanced features were added.

In 2013 they offered the MXT All Pro, which was the same MXT Pro and the only difference was they added an all sticker do both sides of the control housing by the word Pro, plus they went to that terrible 10" Double D coil as standard. The good thing about that name change introduction they did at the end of 2013 was add a free 9" concentric spider coil to the package. Hey would have been better off using that as the standard coil instead of that bigger Double D coil they went to since the spider coil worked a lot better.

So when you get to selecting and MXT there were only two versions, the original MXT and then the MXT Pro. You could buy it with an all sticker but it's the same detector. And personally, after acquiring an MXT right after they were introduced, and then using the MXT Pro prototype and then buying the finished product which was better, the MXT Pro was perhaps my favorite White's detector over the past 20 years

Let me just add my comment how about the new Garrett Apex. I like both the Apex and the MXT Pro but hands down I prefer the Apex right now especially holding out hope that they'll have a small coil soon.

Gregg, if you decide on an XP ORX, I almost agree with Andrew's suggestion.
