Hi Monte

I have a few older White's and Tesoros as can be seen in my signature and try to put them all in rotation to use. My 6000 Pro XL comes closest to the XLT performance with the Signal Balance set on the "hot" side. The sweep speed can be slowed down with the hotter Signal Balance setting but not Tesoro or IDX Pro slow.

The Mr. Bill modified IDX Pro is a slow sweep favorite as it can be swept slowly in thick trash, It hunts in the small iron almost as well as a good Tesoro like the original Bandido but with the added advantage of an accurate but simple Target ID and better depth of detection.

These older analog machines can hold their own well into the 21st century and will continue to provide many great finds and ample enjoyment.

White's: MX7... MX5....IDX Pro Mr. Bill modified...., 6000 Pro XL with tone mod, 5900 CB, coils: 350 BlueMax, 5.3 Eclipse, Six Shooter, 5.3 BullsEye, 5½" HotHead Ferrett, ProScan 800, Royal 800, lots of 950's

Tesoro: Inca, Toltec 100, Toltec ll, Bandido, Bandido ll, Pantera, Amigo ll, Shadow X2, and Outlaw, coils: 4", 6", 7", Troy S7, 8" Troy S9, 10½" 12X10 DD

Nokta: Fors Relic,.... coils...11X7....5 inch

Last day of October ... XLT ... a 1948-s silver Roosevelt Dime.
