Does the new detector have a name?

I agree with you I even told them shrink it and water proof it and it could go head to head against the CTX.
I was told "we don't share info on what we are building"
Whites is there own worse enemy now trying to make cheap plastic detectors to follow in garretts shoes.

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.

I agree with you and then add we had a REP from Whites back talking all us that didn't help one bit that is when I decided Whites was never going to be the OLD whites I loved.
It would have to take one hell of a detector to make me even try one of their machines again after the MXsport and that guy.

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.

Well, if White's didn't attempt to make aesthetic changes to their detectors, they would get criticized for that as well. Why would they share their future business plans with you? I think the number of years that White's has been in the game proves that they might know a little about the detector business.

I'm sorry but remind me again, what is the name of the detector company that you own?:rolleyes:

I feel the Spectra V series is the best of the best and it is hard to beat no matter what they put in plastic housings. They are the best Whites have to offer still.

No glass ball in this house, but I would bet it is a model off the MX Sport design.. Maybe something like a MX Sport/M6. Dummed down version of the MX Sport. I truly hope it is not a Economy MX5, but it could be.

I bought a V3 and Whites updated and upgraded the unit for the cost of shipping. when I FIRST TOOK IT OUT I HATED IT, COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING8NG DEEPER THAN A FEW INCHES. I would detect with my other unit for hours than pick up the V for a couple of minutes. I got on the White's forum and read every post from the beginning to the end. Gradually I learned little by little each control and what it would do for me. Then I STARTED USING THE v3I LONGER AND LONGER AS I GAINED CONFIDENCE. Now my V3i is totally customized to me settings and I use it full time. I have everything set to the way I like it. No other detectorist I hunt with can out do it. A lot of times we compare signals and the V is more solid and deeper. I routinely hit 9" dines and 10" Indians.
