There are times when 6" is more than enough. I could take those jokes further but this is a family forum.

P.S. - Sorry this took so long Chuck. Been out of the office a lot lately.

Tom, is there currently a coil cover that fits or does it come with one?

Will it work with my V3?    I saw a frequency range on the page from 3 to 22.5.

Fingers crossed the answer is yes.

Okay Tom

I now have the 6” coil for my Sport on order.

I’ll get back with you after I spend some time with it in the field on what I think of it.

Do you think that my name would come off easy on that bathroom wall? Whatever you do don’t put my number on there too .

Well I received my MX 6” coil this morning. The only trouble I was headed to a wild 4 year old Granddaughter Birthday party. When I did make it home I just had to get that coil on and fire it up. I’ll know more to tell about it tomorrow afternoon.

It looks as if it has a sealed coil cover on it and measuring from side to side on the bottom it’s 6 5/8”. The best thing the bottom of the coil is flat.

Just doing a little air test and I know a lot has nothing good to say about that type of testing but I’ll do better tomorrow.

Till then.

Got out yesterday with my new 6” coil for about two hours. This being the third time of hunting around this old house. This one is my first to hunt a odd ball yard as this one. The house has to be a hundred years old if not more. You look at it and think it’s got to be some old coins here. Be lone ee !

What has been done was the yard was dug up and hauled off. Then they came back and filled it in with one inch rocks or bigger. The ground is solid pull tabs and all modern coins. If any old coins is there to be found is in the driveway covered over asphalt.

That 6” coil worked great along the sidewalk and I found like before nothing old. One thing about this coil it’s no need to push the pinpoint button . You just make some short waves over your target and you know where it’s at.

I couldn’t say how deep it was detecting being the rocks keep falling back in the hole you were trying to dig. The rocks was so packed in it was hard to get my digging tool down in there.

I’ll have to get back later to give a better report if and when I can find ground better ground.

Till then.

Chuck

When I called Whites to order mine (3/25), they said a coil cover would be coming out in the future.

      As said I like both the Sport and the Nox face . The great thing about them as you hunt you can really look at the face of each and know what you have notched out . What makes the Nox even better over the Sport is you can notch out one number at a time .
       Oh I know the Nox has so many fine qualities over the Sport it will never have but like the Nox it has a pretty face .
       I don’t know why but a pretty face always tugs at my heart strings and a detector is no different.

      I am very impressed with the High trash setting, and am trying to figure out how it is weighted
      you would think it had low sensitivity and high discrimination therefore would lead to less dept and more iron masking in thick iron areas at homesites
      but it actually performs to the contrary of my expectations.
      it goes very deep up to 12 inches and the discrimation level dose not interfere with separating iron from small non ferrous items
      I was using my equinox in all metal mode and my friend had his MX Sport high trash mode, we  where at a colonial homesite, he has getting mixed signal of iron and a high tone and number
      he dug 5 big hand made square nails up to 6", and was still getting the good signal , when i cam over with the equinox in multi frequency  all I was getting was iron, minus signals, with a flash of 11
      but no enough to want to dig, and I predicted it was probably a false from a bent nail
      he kept going and eventually t 10" deep amongst more nails he pulled a penny
      My equinox never sensed this coin, yet high trash on single frequency spotted it at the onset and stuck to it like glue until it was finally retrieved.
      I would love to know the set up and weighting behind this mode some i could apply some to my equinox.

      This specification comparison chart is derived from the White's MX7 Owner's Manual and the White's MX Sport Owner's Manual. Everything is pretty straight forward. The asterisks note that the MX7 weight with batteries is derived from the manual. The MX Sport manual is unclear on whether batteries are included in the weight and my personally weighing the MX Sport with batteries suggests the answer is no. The MX Sport with batteries weighs 4.23 lbs. as weighed on my postal scales. I can't vouch for the MX7 weight as listed in the manual. Current internet price for MX Sport is $749.00 and MX7 $549.00
      I think it is fair to say looking at the specifications that this is a MX Sport in a lighter weight, better balanced and less expensive package. The only real operational difference is the MX Sport comes with a 10" round DD epoxy filled coil and the MX7 a 9.5" round lightweight concentric. This would make the MX Sport out of the box better configured for water hunting and severe mineralization. The MX7 is better configured for park and other dry land detecting in mild to moderate mineralization. Both units can use the same coils.

      Both the MX Sport and the Equinox 800 are waterproof and that’s about where the two are alike ends.
       Now if we want to put the detectors that have the option to run in different frequencies then how would you place them in price? I speaking about the ones that have other frequencies but still run only one at a time .
       Now remember the Equinox is at the top with a price of 899.00 and a true multi frequency.
        Would you want to slip it in between the Sport and the Equinox in price? Maybe we could lower the price of the Sport and place the ones we’ve been talking about in it’s spot..
       Just thinking out loud but everyone has their own opinion.
