Hello William.

If you're talking about trigger forward - alternate mode then yes,
I'm using this relic alternate mode at the beach with disc level at 0.
Gives the iron grunt and all other stuff high pitched tones.
To me a great beach setting.

From time to time in the fields with tons of ring pulls the alternate
coin & jewelry mode is used here, too.

Do you have only the 300mm / 12" coil for this?

Best Greetings

MXT has alternate search mode with trigger pushed forward. I believe MXT Pro does not have alternate search. Just non motion pin point mode when trigger is pushed forward.

In the past White's did some suspect decisions.
One was to sell the primary MXT with the 12"/300mm coils as a MXT-Pro Kit.
This is what causes sometimes some confusion what detector is used.
The reason for asking for the coil size is the 12" coil, which is 300mm in diameter, will see a lot of ground.
And if there is iron AND some good stuff the iron can mask the good ones.
With having a concentric coil (12") the idea here was to get the 6x10 DD Eclipse which is prefered
by most MXT users, me too. Very good coil with superb target separation end excellent pinpointing.

What areas are you going to hunt, William?
