Tips For MX Sport Relic Mode?

Recommended Posts

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.

I myself not into relic hunting. I wish I could help you but over the years that’s just something I haven’t got around to doing.. I guess If I did it would be one relic looking for another.

 At this time do you have just the stock coil ? I’ve posted this elsewhere the only coil I don’t have is the 13” but all the others prove to be great. 

 I’ve been wrong but maybe you’d be better served with a different coil when relic hunting. My problem would be what to say get this or that . I may be way out in left field but the 6X10 DD would maybe fit your need. The only trouble it’s going to cost you 179.95 to find out.

I'm using the stock coil. I'll do a little more research and I think you may be right about changing coils. Thanks for the information.

Why don’t you post over on coin and relic to see if someone there can help you. They may not swing the same detector but I’m sure they know what coil works the best.

Generally when targets are bouncing all over the place reducing the sensitivity of the machine will settle things down.

Thanks for tip. Still trying to learn this machine.

Thanks Steve for setting this up and I’m sure over time it will help lots of people..

The only reason I said maybe using the 6x10 DD is it has less a foot print and you still have the benefit of a DD coil in high mineralized soil if so be.

I’m going to back out of here and let the ones that’s in the know say.

Another tip - try increasing the SAT along with decreasing the sensitivity as Steve suggested. Should smooth things over!

      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.
