Default Whites Classic IDX

I have a chance for a 2nd MDer. This one would be for wife.
What info can anyone give me on A Whites Classic IDX Blue max 950. Not sure if its a Classic SL. Found on craigs list. Asking $375 or trade for a Kayak. I have a Kayak to offer trade if its worth it.
Is that a gooding asking price for MDer? How old of a medel would it be?
My Kayak was $650 7 yrs ago.
I think the trade values are fair. Just curious about MDer, good/bad
Brian

Afaik not a bad machine..I think it wa still in rpoduction 10 years ago or so. Asking price feels a bit high. But then, I doubt there's a single IDX in Finland

Not a bad detector but they are asking waaaaay too much for it, even if it has Mr. Bills mods it is still too high.

P.S. You can find these for sale on eBay all day long.

I would do the trade if it was me. You can always get another kayak later on

$225-250 is about the going price though.
