I own a mx5.Its the only whites I've ever owned.I have a spyder and 6x10 eclipse.I would like a. Bigger dd for depth.
I have read the d2 had issues, and Ive read the 10x12 will detune my machine.
I prefer round dd coils.But if the self is better I'd get it.I'm leaning towards the d2 coil, but I'd like to hear from anyone with experience. Thanks

I dont own a MX5 but i do own other Whites machines,but from looking at the Whites website the main larger coil that they suggest is the 13'' ULTIMATE coil,it is a very popular all round coil and in my opinion it could be the exact one that you are looking for.

Deus and Nexus MP main everyday detectors

Displays on a Detector are really the equivalent of relying on sub-titles,give me a Analogue machine anyday.

Some of my site specific use machines.
TDI Pro 20'' Mono
Nexus SE dual 9'' coil
Nexus MP 14x13
Fisher TW-5 twin box
Crossbow PI 14x9 Mono
Mirage PI 5'' Mono
DFX 18'' Detech
T2 SEF15x12
IDX Pro 15'' Concentric
B1 and B3
Trident11 Extreme NEL Snake

Mainly hunt deep ploughed and pasture sites,trashy roman/saxon and celtic permissions.

I think Basstrackerman had an MX5 and used the 13" ultimate on it and really liked it.

Hi. I did have the MX5 and it really shined when i used the 10x12 sef coil or the 8x6 sef coil. It was deep and did very well in trash. I buy and sell fairly often so i no longer have it. I did not try the 13" ultimate but have heard it does better than the sef.

Retired...happy...been detecting since 1978. Bill

I use the SEF WSS 5x10 dd coil. Can't tell any difference in depth to the spider but I like the narrow knife blade pattern. I only over lap my swings by an inch or two with it. Ofcourse you soil may be different than what I search in around the Charleston area. The weight is not as much the d2 I think. Seems like is one of the cpmplaints I have read of d2 users. Never used the other SEF coils but the above comments sounds good.
