Dime / Quarter VDI Error In New 6” Concentric Coil

Recommended Posts

An error in VDI number and quarter/dime reporting has been noted in the early version of the new 6” concentric coil for the White’s MX series. I can’t imagine not digging anything reading in this range anyway, but it is something to be aware of. If nothing else it could affect resale value on the coils so if you have one and this is a problem it can be addressed under warranty once a fix is applied. Stay tuned.

You know how to make a guys day. I hadn’t had my 6” coil maybe two weeks at the most when like said before a frying sound.

I sent that coil in with my ever so sick Sport. Just maybe while they have both in there hope both get fixed.

Tom from White’s over on Findmall states that the problem with the 6” shooter coil is a easy fix and should be complete by two weeks.

I’m just relaying what was said on the above forum.

Well I got a email from UPS stating my MX Sport with my 6” coil should be here tomorrow. Need to check out the Sport with the problem that sent it back to White’s. The odd thing when I sent in the 6” coil with the Sport I didn’t know it had a ID problem. That’s another thing I’ll need to check out.

Well I got my Sport back then Tom had stated two days after it was shipped that the 6” coil problem was fixed.

Today I put back in the mail and White’s will receive it Wednesday. I’d think the latest I should receive it back is the last of next week.

I can see I got a new Sport back being this one is liking a serial number inside the battery compartment.

Anyone on here have any idea what’s involved to correct the problem the six shooter coil is having with the ID.

My reason for asking this question is White’s received my coil on the morning of May 9 th and haven’t received or heard back a word on it.

Maybe my thinking is wrong in that the coil I sent would be all or part be trashed. Due to that I’d receive another one sooner than 9 days come tomorrow.

      I finally got to use my MX Sport today for the first time. In relics mode it was bouncing all over the place, switched to coin and jewelry and the machine performed better for me. Any advice for the relics mode would be appreciated.

      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.

      I just find it hard to believe I’m the only one on here that has a Sport. If you do I’d like to hear from you. Hey if not it how about the MX 7 .
      The only two in the news at this time is the Goldmaster 24K that will be out the 1st of August. The other just as well be in fantasy  land and that’s the TDI Beach Hunter.
      If you got a White’s that you know Noah had before you, let’s talk.

      I’ve been trying to find the time to truly give the 6” Six Shooter coil a field test.
      I had the opportunity several times to give it that test but always fall short of what I wanted.
      Today I found myself in a school yard that I never hunted before. On the way in to what I would call a very large play ground area. They had to haul loads of sand in because it so deep I found it hard to walk on.
      I had fired up my Sport as soon as I walk in the play grounds. On the way to that beautiful deep sand that I was thinking it had to be hundreds of coins waiting just for me I past some very small bleachers . I made a swing a two but no luck. That sand around the swings was calling even louder now.
      I started my hunt around the first set of swings but to my disappointment not one coin did I find. This went on from one play area to another. Oh I’d find a penny now and then but not much I’d say to write home about. I’d walked back to the first swings that I had started from.
      Standing there I couldn’t believe I hadn’t no more than I did . My thinking it’s got to be someone hunting this school everyday. I’ve never walked away with something looking this good and so little.
      I was not to be put down so I started detecting again. After a few swings I got a signal within a foot circle all reading a quarter. Sure enough it was a quarter not just one but three. From then on I stayed away from the play ground equipment. I was finding pennies dimes with a quarter here and there.
      Yes I know any coil could have done what I’ve talked about so far.
      I was feeling so good on the coins I found so far I was going to hit those metal bleachers on the way out.
      The Six Shooter coil really was shining bright when I was hunting right under that bottom seat that you can see in the picture.I found more coins next to all that metal than I found in that big play ground.
      I know it’s more coins to be found under that little bleachers. I would have tried to move it but I think it would have made a change on my out look on life.
      I think the people detecting before me didn’t have a small coil like the Six Shooter coil like I did. If they had my finds would been lots less.
      If you don’t have the Six Shooter and you have the MX 7 or the Sport then you don’t know what you’re missing.
