not giving up on MX sport yet !

Hi guys not happy here! Well no one's tried to buy my new MX sport so lm going to keep on trying to figure out the learning curve? You know I've learned that there are very different qualities of detector sales companies! I'll explain , the company l bought my whites MX sport from, can,t say the name , but I think some where in okie ville USA . said to call with any questions about the MX sport! So when l did call about the coil options the owner was rather short, and rude , saying he never used a sport so can't tell me anything. But! When l bought it he told me to call about anything. Really? Not! What l needed after deciding to give whites and the MX sport a fair chance . but maybe he,s tired of whites customers complaining ? . l could have gotten that service at walmart or amazon. But then l call pro stock detectors in mi, and Al the owner ,who l never purchased anything from yet! Was very happy to answer my many questions ,on several occasions. In fact one time l could not get him to sell me a more expensive detector ,he told me to hang on to my at pro learn it more , because some detectorist were bring back the higher priced machines and buying back the AT pro. He is an honest good hearted brick and mortar store owner that really cares . that's refreshing ! Definitely I will be buying anything else from him at pro stock. My test patch for my MX sport is getting bigger each day with everything l can find that will simulate a lake bottom. Looks like the 7inch coil might help with my Learning this machine .but if l buy one probably should take it off Craig's list. I also have learned that if you want more depth with a detector with bigger coils or even a different machine something might have to be sacrificed l know most of you know these things. I guess I am just venting, hopefully in a more constructive way.

The thing I learned about the MX sport rather fast was that I did not need to set the sensitivity as high as I was used to running my MX5 and MXT. A setting of 5 or 6 on the MX Sport is like 8 or 9 on the MX5. Cranking the sensitivity up in some areas where I live will drive you nuts trying to figure out if you have a good tune or a false signal. The 7 inch coil is really the great for spots where you have a lot of trash. I use the 7 inch most of the time unless I get into an areas without many targets and that has not been detected before.

Good luck! I have heard such mixed things about the sport. Seems with the right settings it can be effective.

Wow, I am very new to this hobby and am still trying to find the right starting detector. The MX sport is on my short list! Thanks for you post and I will keep following your thread.
