Merry Christmas from Detector Stuff!

I hope Santa fills your stockings with any and all metal detecting goodies you want this year!

Also, it’s my personal belief, that Jesus is the reason for the season…keep the kindness of nativity-scene1Christmas alive all year long.

White’s MX5

mx5_displayWhite’s has an interesting new detector on the market…it’s called the MX5.  Reports on performance are promising…and the price tag is good at $599.95.

It also seems to have a nice lighted display and touts rugged build quality.

1 Welcome to!


Thanks for visiting…since the launch of DetectorStuff I’ve worked to improve the hobby of metal detecting by seeking out interviews, metal detector reviews, interesting stories, etc.

Not to brag, or anything (okay…maybe a little!) this was one of the first sites on the Web to interview industry insiders and put their unique perspectives on the written page for hobby enthusiasts.  I’ve had conversations with legends at Fisher, White’s, Detectorpro, Teknetics and more.  The “brains” behind some of the coolest detectors on the planet!

Drop by the forums at for discussions and fun.

Please enjoy the content of this site and feel free to drop me an email or message with ideas, suggestions or just to say hello.
