My All-Time Favorites from White's include:

The absolute best silver-coin finding Target ID model I ever used, the XLT. Main coils used were the 6½" concentric in average trashier places, preferring the Blue Max 600 but a 5.3 Bullseye was a close second pick. For day-to-day open-area hunting I preferred the burgundy-colored 8" Concentric.

A very close favorite to the XLT was the 6000 Pro XL, later renamed the XL Pro. I mean a 'very close' rival to the XLT and I also preferred the same two search coils for the bulk of my needs.

Next down my 'favorites' list is a modified IDX Pro that saw most work with a 6½" Concentric but in really brushy or trashy confined spaces I opted for the 4½" Concentric, the Blue Max 350.

Another very close rival to the modified IDX Pro was an also modified Classic ID, using the same two favorite search coils.

Finally, there is "The Threesome" .... those are 3 models I also enjoyed, just about equally. They were somewhat similar and yet quite different, but all served a similar role as units I liked to have 'along-for-the-rid' as general purpose detectors. Those include, in order or release, the MXT Pro, the MX-5 and the MX-7. And for my wants and needs and site challenges, they were all at-their best with a 6½" Concentric coil mounted.

Looking back to my very first factory-produced detector, a White's GhostTowner BFO in August of '68, I have owned or used just about all of the White's models through the years. Some I liked, but the above constitute my 'favorite' offerings from White's.
