No Sir, I never got the chance to own one. I lived in the Macon area for a lot of years. These days I'm residing in SC near Greenville. Where are you at in N. GA?

Yeah, that is sad news. I am still using a Whites MXT, a Teknetics T2, a Tesoro Compadre and I just purchased a Nokta Anfibio.

I think you're gonna find the MX Sport will be pretty easy to learn. Luckily the Whites forum here has been returned to operational status. There should be a bunch of threads about it in our archives here. Go all the way back to 2016 when it was released and you can read all the threads that were started when everyone here was just learning how it worked. I'm betting you're gonna love it. And don't worry about Whites closing the doors. I just read today that there is a shop in Virginia that will be servicing them,,,

A Big Welcome to You to the forum from a Fellow Georgian. We are from Covington, Ga. about 40 miles east of Atlanta but are considering moving to the North Georgia mountains. Atlanta is encroaching on our little county of Newton. We need to put a lil' more buffer between us and the big A town. I use a Whites MXT Pro and a Minelab Safari. Right now I'm not using anything as I'm almost two weeks post op from rotator cuff and bicep surgery due to tears from my left shoulder and arm. If I could suggest watch utube videos on the MX Sport. Do you have an operator's manual for the Sport? There is a website that you can go to and download a manual on almost any make and model of any detector if you need one. Best of luck to you and Congrat's on your recent retirement.

John, this fall, after crop harvest, ( peanuts, corn, cotton) consider coming to my farm near Millen, Ga. 1200 acres of crops and 1100 of woods. Also have access to another 3500-4000 that friends own. Farm dates back to the early 1800's. Right now I'm fighting Covid-19 and too dang hot to hunt. Yes, this is for real. My daughter thinks I'm crazy for doing this. She thinks I'm too trusting. I can see you reading this and saying "what" ??

John, I'm down to 3 detectors right now. Gold Bug Pro, a great old relic machine, At Max, T2, and waiting on a Garrett Apex. I sold/traded a Simplex, 800, 600 and a 540 in the last few months. Also have 2 Euro Tech Pro's that my grand kids use (some time) when they come down from Augusta. Keep me in mind for this late fall or early winter.
