Whites MX Sport metal detector
Posted by Windy City Detector Sales & Rental, Inc on January 16, 2016
The White's Electronics MX Sport is new for 2016. It is a descendent of the hugely popular White's MXT, and ups the game by adding features in a lighter weight yet waterproof package.
The MXT is extremely popular because it does almost everything very well; coin, relic, jewelry, and nugget detecting. Despite being so versatile the MXT is also a bargain priced detector with performance rivaling much more expensive detectors. The MX Sport looks to share and extend this remarkable versatility. Many people have wished for a waterproof MXT and White's is delivering with the MX Sport
The MX Sport has only just now been leaked via the FCC applications needed to get any new detector approved for use in the United States. White's themselves has yet to release official information, so everything here should be considered preliminary and subject to change.
Keep an eye out here for details as they emerge.
The MX Sport comes with the 10" round DD coil and has a couple coil options taken directly from the MXT lineup. These are the 950 round concentric and 10" x 5.5" DD elliptical. Although these coils are probably the same coils as used on the MXT they have the special waterproof connector needed for use on the MX Sport, and so coils will not be directly interchangeable between the MX Sport and MXT.
It does raise the interesting possibility of an adapter fitting that might make people with an existing MXT coil selection able to take advantage of that without buying all new coils. That remains to be seen however.
One feature that appears to have been given special attention is the recovery speed, or the ability of the MX Sport to accurately report two or more closely adjacent targets. this is a critical feature for hunting areas with many years accumulation of metal items. The MX Sport has an extremely fast processor and target separation that will put it in the very top level of performance in this regard.
