Perhaps a new Whites Waterproof MXSPORT coming in spring, a well established brand available from a well known importer/dealer that don't change every year and with an aftersales service that don't leave YOU behind.  Very Happy

Hi Ivanll.
Does the MXT get much use these days.

Having a play with an SST.
Seems to be very good and easy to use. Good sensitivity and ground tracking. Nice TID display and positive iron ID from large to small items.
Runs a silent threshold but hits on small targets quite well.
The Detector is set up for US coin ID.

The SST appears to have near on the same air test all metal capability on gold as does the Gold Bug Pro. Also I feel that the SST ground balance handles high iron mineralisation better than the Gold bug Pro when both detectors have their sensitivity set to max and are fitted with similar size coils.

A small irritation is that the machine IDd a 22k 7g ring as a screw cap. Not screw cap or ring, just positive lock on screw cap. Tone was high so you would not leave it un -investigated anyway.

Near on all of the gold chain jewellery that I have found displays in the foil & iron range on the SST. including a 22g 9k albert chain with T bar.
Large gold rings display as screw caps  foil or pull tab.

That is why I have become a dig it all detectorist

Nice metal detector with good depth capability on coin size targets.

It gets it's fair share of use and with the waterproof headphones attached there is no fear of damage when used in the rain, which we have had a good deal of lately.

It also have enough GB ability and sensitivity to be used on some of our gold fields, well at least the ones I have been to.

Reduced all posts with pictures as some forums think the pictures become their property that can be sold or traded as they see fit.

I do not know if Jimmy Sierra is still designing detectors for Whites but every detector that I have used that is his design, has been brilliant and the SST is no exception.
This tecta responds well to all of my gold chains from 22g down to less than 2.5g.

The smallest nugg I can detect with it is below the weighing range of my cheapie scales. So less than 0.1g.
Not to bad for a 15khz tecta.

The SST has been around for a few years now and I have read several American field tests of this machine and I disagree with most of them.
Most testers say that it is a starter detector. Well sure it can be and that is a good thing because it means that beginners can start finding good items straight away without having to study a huge manual for a more complicated machine that is not necessarily much better in performance.  This means that more beginners will stay in the hobby rather than give up because they think that metal detectors are just kids toys. The SST  also performs well enough for more experienced operators. The machines detecting ability is excellent and ground balance is a snap in a wide range of mineralisation.

The SST at max sens is close to the Gold Bug Pro for depth and I believe it is better in high mineralisation than the Bug. (not as chirpy)
SST can detect this thin 2.43g gold chain at approx 4cm at a tad above the prefered sensitivity setting and even better at max sens but at this setting the machine is a bit touchy on emi. The detector responds to the straight section (not inc the clasp) laid out on the ground.

As you can see; the chain is only slightly thicker than a biro pen line.
