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 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.

      I need to know the type and size of the screws in the Sport ? Do you know if it can take a higher voltage without smoking it ?
      If anyone else knows the answer please do reply.
      When I get finish with my Sport we both may not know it.
