So White's had their new detector at Detectival. Why haven't we seen it yet?



One Man's Trash...........is what I usually find.

XP Deus / CTX 3030

Where are the diamond rings?.............They said there'd be diamond rings !.

In recent years Whites appears to have become stuck in producing new machines,i was/have been a avid Whites man for a very long time and currently have 4 Whites detectors,but the 2 recent models i MX-5 and the MX-Sport especially the latter machine suffered some reasonably bad teething troubles and this i fear lead to folks drifting away into buy new machines from this company.It basically took them a couple of attempts in rectifying the problem/s,although typically Whites picked up the baton very quickly and addressed the problems i personally fear the damage had been done all ready,so although the product is ultra reliable folks did not flock back again and buy the machines in the volumes prior to the initial teething problems.

My machines that i am ultra happy with are the large box machines ie TDI Pro,IDX Pro,DFX etc,but i feel the biggest down fall is the complex machines like the top of the range V3i,possibly one of the most adaptable machines going and can be made too operate in most detecting situations,but to do this successfully one need to be a computer programmer for Nasa,alas i dont work for NASA so never bought a V3i,as i would rather be out detecting than sitting on the side of a field going through countless software controls.

I resurrected my 20 year old IDX Pro recently and if i am honest i had forgotten how such a brilliant machine this thing is,the finds rate has jumped up by a massive amount,and the most important thing is the enjoyment factor has flooded back again,this in my mind is vitally important to me,i do have some very high octane detectors that i use,but these are mainly for 'site specific situation' but for everyday use machines that aint going to happen,simplicity in operation and good all round detecting experience is what i am after,for me at the moment the IDX Pro does this and will be my No1 machine going forward.



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.

Site specific use machines.
TDI Pro 20'' Mono
Nexus SE dual 9'' coil
Fisher TW-5 twin box
Crossbow PI Coiltek 14x9 Mono
Mirage PI 5'' Mono
DFX 18'' Detech
T2 SEF15x12
IDX Pro 15'' Concentric
Arado120b
B1 and B3
Trident11 Extreme NEL Snake


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

I am by no means a tech person and was initially intimidated but I found the v3i alot easier to navigate than the dfx.

Nothing stays the same and some of the companies have come up with some outstanding detectors. Whites was ahead of the curve so to say for many years and became comfortable with their metal box designs while other companies evolved. Seems to me now that Whites is evolving in order to compete and hang on to market share some see it in a negative way. One thing Whites does better than most is customer service. One of the biggest companies from down under is lacking at best when it comes to repairing their detectors. Same company has some of the best detectors and very inovative new features. Take the best of both companies and combine that into one, you'd have a company that would leave many the the others in the dust. I personally feel Whites is going in the right direction and really has no choice but to upgrade some of their detectors with new features and better performance. I still enjoy my MX5 even if it is out of production. The MX Sport will be hanging around with me also for some time to come. But introduce a new detector with better performance, more features such as wireless head phones standard included and under 3 pounds, I'm all over it. People who have owned a Whites will come back because of their fine reputation. New customers will come when a new detector proves itself and word of mouth gets around. Most people just can't keep a secrete.

I've had both and I agree.

White's ought to build on the V3i, not start over in a different unknown direction, imho.

The V3i is an extremely impressive machine with really groundbreaking new technology, especially the simultaneous 3-frequency operation and all the adjustability. Take the V3i, and repackage it in a lighter, slightly simplified model with a modern fast central processor, and White's has a winner with relatively modest R&D cost. Faster processor, more efficient software coding, and a better ground balancing system is really all it needs.



Current detectors: White's V3i, MXT, XL Pro
Past: White's XLT, 6000D Series 3, Coinmaster 2DB, Minelab CTX 3030, Fisher Gold Bug Pro
Location: Western Idaho

I'm betting that's what White's is coming out with, but you will be able to buy a "detuned" version and do an online upgrade later as you want to expand the capabilities.

What about the vx3? Isn't that a simplified version of the v3i ? I wish that they would come out with an all terrain, back light , waterproof, wireless , multi frequency with updateable software and new high performance , deeper and more stable coils. And reasonably priced. :)

Kinda ODD that something so old can be THAT good huh? Whatever they did with the IDX Pro was and still is top rate. Although I use the Minelabs for deep silver, for going out and just finding targets of ALL conductivities,there's one machine I use for that...and to guess what machine that is,note my name.

Working on the new detector helping to make it the best they can before putting it on the street I hope.

Lol, I have not been to the plant and I'm not a telepathic, it was just a good guess. SO do I win anything for the BINGO, like maybe testing out the new detector? :detecting:
