Added enjoyment to my 'Detactor Team.'

Now I have 'Older,' 'Old,' and 'New' White's models to keep my satisfied. smiling smiley

My 'Older' White's is my excellent condition XLT that I keep equipped with a Blue Max 600 Concentric coil. I really enjoy using the XLT, more than any other upper-end White's model produced in the past quarter-century to include today's offerings, especially when working low-to-modestly littered open areas.

My 'Old' White's is an equally splendid condition Classic ID that is set-up like the Classic ID I used to have and sadly parted with. It has the important, and functional, modifications for Threshold and Ground Balance (as well as variable SAT), and is equipped with a choice after-market 5" Concentric 'Ferret' coil.

Rounding out my White's 'Team' are my two 'New' MX-7's. These I keep at-the-ready outfitted with the new Six-Shooter 6" Concentric coil on one, and the other sports the 7" Double-D made for White's by Detech.

All three models fit my personal requirements of being 'Simple,' 'Functional,' and 'Performance-based' in order to eliminate complexity while being quick to grab-and-go for a wide variety of hunt sites and environmental challenges. The XLT allows for a moderate to faster sweep speed in wide-open/sparse-target environments, yet my custom 'Bushwhack' program and use of a 6½" Concentric coil still gets me reasonably good performance in moderately-littered sites.

The modified Classic ID and MX-7's are my top picks when the going gets rough where sites have a very dense amount of debris, especially iron nails to problematic rusty tin. Again, a key ingredient for my success afield for over half-a-century of detecting has been relying on the use of smaller-than-stock search coils.

None of these three models will part my company until health and mobility issues bring be to a halt in enjoying this great outdoor sport. I encourage anyone to do the same as they pick-and-choose from various detectors to make sure they also have a functional and versatile detector ...or two or more models ... to complement their detector battery.

And if you are looking for a modern designed detector that is very affordable yet performance based, I encourage you to consider checking out the new White's MX-7. If you want waterproof, that would be the MX-Sport, but dollar-for-dollar, the MX-7 is a worthy contender in today's available detector models.

Now ... to find some new and interesting sites to go detecting this weekend. thinking
