    MX Sport. Excited!!!!!!



    This looks like it will rock. I was not happy with my V3i and traded it last year. I was waiting for Whites to come out with something new. I hope this detector will be fast and have great separation. Hope I can come up with some funds to buy one this year.

    I think its their answer to the ATPro and will probably be in that neighborhood of pricing , I wish they would discontinue the S-handle type machines , i'll never buy another one . They tend to tire or fatigue the wrist more , at least on me anyway .

    Looks interesting. Kind of had plans to buy an ATP but just bought a CTX 3030 so I have to do well with that first to get the funds. That will give me time to see how the MX sport reviews go

    Hope to see some posts about the mx sport when they get ahold of one. Then my wife might give me a kitchen pass to go get me one. She did give me an E-trac for christmas of 2014. nothing for 2015 due to e-trac for 2014.

    Great that it's waterproof, but at this price it should be a multi frequency machine with single frequency options. Seems like they are going backwards.

    Excitement is fading. Have hot seen any real indication that this detector is a winner yet. Not selling my F75 or E-trac any time soon

    Glad I waited to buy a MX Sport. Online they are saying they have suspended sales and recalling all units. Fixing the screen problems and others.

    Yes this would make the second major or upper end machine from Whites to have a series of issues or "bugs" .

    I am saving up for a MX Sport. It is going to be my answer to water detecting. There are a lot of 1800s lakeside resorts and swimming holes around here. Before AC people from Syracuse NY would pay a penny to ride the trolley out to Onondaga Lake for a cooler location. The resort buildings are long gone and the state area is forested once again. I suspect there is treasure in the lake.
