13 inch detech vs D2

First of all, is it worth it? :surrender: I'm in the market for a v3i with wireless setup, or the french detector with 11 inch coil.

I had the orginal v3 spectra back in 2010, and sold it (big mistake), so now I want to purchase one again. But from what I have read from others, is this...I hear that the newer detech 13 inch ultimate is better for the EMI issues (that used to plague my original v3) vs the stock coil, the D2. Soooooooo, is the 13 inch better for EMI rejection, and depth, for relic hunting? Any input as to a yay or nay, on this comment and thought process? Better depth for vdi acknowledgement and/or depth overall in AMM or mixed mode?

Thank you, bubba

I too prefer the ultimate coil for all the same reasons....it's just better at everything!

You need this coil. As good as the V is , it's so much better with this new coil. Go get your self one . You will be very happy you did.

Good question if you get an answer let me know I just ordered the Detech 13" today and figured I'd call White's the Super 12" is concentric so the 10" DD would be closest but not sure.

Bubba.
I purchased mine a few weeks ago and it does a great job. Hit some items as deep as 10 inches. I enjoy swinging the coil.
On another note...Someone posted on Facebook that if you have the Detech 13" for the V3i set the coil setting to the 12" coil option then "Reset" the V3i? Not sure what he meant by that.
I asked him to expand but no response.
Any ideas?

WELL yesterday I spent almost the entire day, LITERALLY, fine tuning and experimenting with 2 setups. 1 for CW relic hunting and 2 for deep coins with little feedback. I can say that the deep coin program is quiet! I am trying my best to duplicate our deep relic settings from the XLT to the v3i, and so far I am very impressed. Shell frags are being air tested 3-4 inches deeper minimum.

Now I know that air testing is totally different then real world hunting and detecting. But I am super excited nonetheless.

Ps, I had the best results with setting the 13 inch detech ultimate coil, by setting the coil setting to the D2 , instead of the 12 super coil. At least this is what I have found yesterday while testing. So far...

Very cool Bubba.
I will continue to tweak my machine too. :) I will try the D2 setting. I tried the 12" last week and it seemed ok. I was working in the Stereo Mixed Mode. I like the different tones in the left & right ears.
Best of luck.

JP, I'm also using the stereo mixed mode on my relic program. I am anxiously awaiting some cooler temps and cut grasses/plowed fields before hitting our CW relic honey holes. :-)

The coil settings on the V3i have no effect on how well the coil works. All the settings do is to attempt to give a more correct depth reading. The wrong coil setting will either make you think the V is getting deeper or make you believe the V is not getting as deep as usual.
