I owned four of them and borrowed three since then to check performance, and never was I satisfied.

I had been using the XLT since '94 and the DFX's could never come close to matching the overall performance I got from the XLT, and I hunt in a lot of iron contaminated sites. Places where neither of them should do as well as the MXT orr other much better performers, but the XLT still served me well and the DFX never matched it. Some liked it, and that's fine. But I have met more people who had one and disliked it, or who had previously owned one and had nothing good to say about it. I'm in that crowd.

I found the MXT Pro to out-perform the XLT, DFX and all the current 'Spectra' series models in many really challenging site conditions and believe the MXT Pro / All-Pro and the current MX-7 are possibly the two best models in White's current line-up for all-purpose performance. So I say PASS on the DFX.
