I am referring to the MXT Pro, or All-Pro which is the same detector, and the MX5. I really like the MXT Pro and it was my #1 detector in my arsenal until January of last year when it was replaced by a better balanced and much more functional and versatile detector. but for a short while I kept the MX-5 around. It does have three things that made it rank lower in my book, and those were the location of the Headphone Jack, the Pinpoint & All Metal mode switching switch, and the lack of a Lock-Track option to halt the Auto-Trac when hunting iron littered sites.

The MX5 is a decent detector from White's especially with the stock 9" spider Concentric coil for beaches or other open areas, or the 6½" Concentric coil for most hunting that most hobbyists will be doing. I kept that coil mounted almost full-time on the MX5 when I was using it.

It sounds like you got a good deal so enjoy getting out hunting with one of the pair of current good White's detectors.,
