IDX Pro modified by Mr. Billthumbs up

November 03, 2018 08:40PM
White's dropped the ball when they did not promote the IDX Pro as much as the more expensive XLT and DFX. Actually the XLT and IDX Pro would be a dynamite duo as they share the same coils.

This model is a true 'sleeper' when equipped with the 6½" concentric coil. Just as great as my more modern MX5 and MX7 but just a bit better in an urban environment with high tension electric service running overhead. It is just a well behaved high performance machine that remains calm when under high tension lines and even transformers! It can be run at full sensitivity in most places and it will tell you with it's great audio that it needs to be dialed in some by reducing Sensitivity a little at a time until it calms down. Most of the time it is running at full Sensitivity and is quite deep when set up this way.

The Mr. Bills mods really make this model into a great performing machine.I bought mine in 2007 brand new and had the mods done, really like this one because it hunts in the iron trash so well. Having a Threshold and Ground Balance adjustments is something White's should have done in the first place and just left the Prizm line in the trash bin. Just my thoughts on a deserving of praise metal detector.....
