Nice Nugget!!

   I was reading your Gains Creek post (2018) from 2002! When was the last time you were there, and did you still bring the MXT along; or Nox, or others? And why do you think that the MXT, and the  All Pro, are still holding their price points?

   And does the Creek still produce? I'm sure it does, but i had to ask!! (Maybe for another post!!)👍👍

Bigtim,

   As you know, reading my posts, i got the All Pro! After reading several different posts here, and other stories and reviews, i thought i would like to have one new, before they were gone forever! And the deal was good! It was really a lot to do with the timing of several events! I don't plan to let it go for a long time! Maybe it was a metal detector midlife crisis; i don't know! But i think i made a good choice, for the way i detect! And it's a hell of a lot cheaper than a Blond and a Corvette!  (Already married to a Blond, and i don't really like Corvettes! Except the split window 63') 😂👍👍

Well after posting this thread I got ahold of a mxt pro today. I think that it does have a slight depth advantage over my regular mxt tracker. I have a 11 nickel buried in my test garden and this was with a 7 inch excellerator coil. The pro will touch it with a high tone where as the regular mxt will only null out thinking it is iron. So needless to say I have made my mind up on which one I prefer now. 

 

Not saying anything bad about the tracker mxt I love it but never had a pro before. So going to give it a whirl now!!

Ganes Creek is a large commercial mine that has been in operation for about 100 years, and still continues today. It was open to the public for metal detecting for ten years, the last in 2012. More details here, but if you have any more questions please start another thread to ask them, as I do not want to hijack this thread. There are more stories about Ganes Creek at Steve’s Mining Journal.

I do not know how much your gonna learn from me but at least we can chew the fat a little on the mxt.

One thing I like on the mxt tracker better than the pro is the pull tab notch it has in coin mode. You can put it in coin mode then push the toggle switch forward and it will notch those puppies out. On the mxt pro it will just put the machine into all metal.

Another thing I like better on Whites units is it keeps the older bottle caps down lower on the scale compared to a lot of newer machines.

Man Steve you really wrote a good article on the MXT

 I enjoyed your ugly nugget story too. Also I saw you trying out the Garrett infinium as well. I always wondered about that unit and how it was. If I was ever gonna get a pi unit it would have been one of them.....it just looks good to me. 

 

Anyways...that was fun reading!!

      I just purchased a brand White's V3i from the factory as noted on another thread. The brand new machine much to my surprise comes with new new redesign of the White's D2 10" round DD coil. I say surprise because I ordered a scuff cover for the coil, and although it went on the scuff cover is larger than the new coil, especially along the inner edge of the right side and so there are large gaps between the edges of the coil and the scuff cover. The new coil has been shaved here and there for a thinner more modern appearance versus the older squared off look.

      I looked and have seen no change in the part number on any sites nor any mention of this new coil anywhere. White's needs to make this known and hopefully a properly fitted scuff cover is available or in the works. It could be it just happened and I am one of the first with this coil and so jumped the gun a bit while dealers clear old stock.
      The old D2 coil has been quoted at 17.9 oz or 498 grams which I have to question as my new coil weighs 1 lb 2.6 oz (18.6 oz) or 526 grams on my postal scale. Can anyone get get an accurate weight on the old D2 coil? Include the cable as I have done - I hate it when cable weights are excluded, as if we are going to swing the coil without a cable. That may account for the discrepancy as I find it hard to believe the new coil weighs more than the old coil, unless the internal windings are different/heavier.
      This coil is also compatible with the White's VX3, all versions of the MXT, the MX5, M6, and DFX.

      Well here she is. I ordered the coil last week. It is the 13" Detech Ultimate. I cannot believe how light weight it is. I am totally like a kid in a candy store today!!
      I put the Sun Ray probe on it a little different than how most people mount them. 
      It really had some awesome separation too for such a large coil. I am not totally sold in the depth aspect just yet. I will have to do some.more testing. But for now it is awesome.

      Hello all, 
          So, i found myself in a very unusual position this past week of trading a detector, and buying a detector! 
          I just want to preface this by saying, I'm not crazy (hopefully)!! Or on any mind altering substances of any kind!😂
            I'm sure many of you saw Gerry of Gerrysdetectors.com looking to sell a brand new White's MXT Pro! Or trade for a used Nox 800!  Well, i did the trade!😬   I'm sure there are those of you that think I'm crazy! (All comments and opinion's welcome)! Well, I'll try and answer that puzzle?! 
          I've always liked the old school (not old) detector maker's that i grew up knowing! And I always wanted a Whites! And this was one i liked! I already had a few Bounty Hunters, and a Garrett! But due to my too long hiatus from detecting, never got around to the White's! I figured that they would still be around when i was ready! Well, we all know that story! So i was looking to add a  new detector to my AT Pro, and Nox 800! Seemed easy enough, and i had been feeling out all the recent models! Than i saw Gerry's ad, and decided to take a different route! I offered to buy, or trade my 800 for the MXT Pro! He went with the trade, which I'm confident we will both be happy with!🤞 They are shipping past one another as we speak! I felt like i wasn't using the 800 to it's fullest extent! And i also knew that next year i would be selling it anyway, before the warranty ran out! So that was where my mind was at!  And i knew the White's supply was drying up relatively fast; and i could always revisit a Nox at a later date!
           Than i saw The post about the Pinky Camo Technetics G2+!! I didn't think i would find a better price close to this, so Sold!! Another direction change! Again, I could have gotten a newer kid on the block, but again decided a tried and true alternative!
          That's my story for now! I welcome all comments and suggestions! Coil and accessory suggestions, etc... for both detectors!
      Tell me what you all think!! And if they were bad decisions, it's all Steve H's fault!! I found both of these on his forum!!😂🤣(kidding Steve)!
         Thanks all for your input!
      And to Gerry and Steve, for furthering my detector addiction! 👍👍

      Whites MXT All detection combat versus Minelab Equinox 800 on gold programs ... on the Top Digin test field. Who will win?
        Will it be a 20-year-old Single-Frequency Sophisticated Detector Whites MXT ... or a Modern Multifrequency Detector Equinox 800? ..
      The terrain of the test is mineralized and the target detectors are masked with iron .. so the task for these detectors will not be easy ...

        This test is from my colleagues from Top Digin ... both colleagues Jack and Mike have already had something to do with various detectors, among others, in recent years with Equinox, both of whom I consider to be an excellent detector.

      You can see for yourself which detector can play a better result ....

      Hi Steve, I'm down here in Oz and was considering considering an MXT Pro. Would I be better off going to the V3i?
      Best regards....Robin
