MX Sport High Trash Mode

Recommended Posts

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.

I think you just have to buy an MX Sport!?

Weighting is a term Minelab used with the Equinox to refer to which multiple frequencies are used and how they are "mixed" together in the modes. Since the MX Sport is a single frequency detector the term does not apply. There are all sorts of reasons a detector might hit a target that another misses, but without having both detectors on hand with quite a bit of time spent over the undug target trying various settings on the machines it is impossible to tell where the difference would be.

Well. Just talking Nox here. You move dirt you may or may not hear a target buried.  Nox is extraordinary detector.  One must think about speed setting, detect mode, sensitivty when detecting.  

A question here.

Can Nox be used in a site using one set of settings and or one detect mode and hunt hard using and deem site dead?

A big fat NO.  User neeeds to hunt more withndiffer t settings and detect modes.  Base this on what targets are possibly in the area, soil mineralization, and how dense iron is on one’s site.

      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.

      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.
