Just acquired a v3i again after 2 years. I've had just about everything else under the sun.

It's a decent detector they just need to upgrade it to water proof so it can go head to head against the CTX.



CTX 3030

That's great. Welcome back! I just did the same thing. There's just something about the V3i that appeals to the nerd part of our brains. It may not be the deepest or fastest, but learning the V3i sure makes you understand detectors better. And having all those adjustments and displays is just plain FUN. :detecting:



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

While I don't own a V3i, just now, I know how you feel. I've tried almost every well known detector made and the V3i is up there with the best.



The real treasure is in the hunt...

Did you save any of the other detectors? Or have they gone the way of all detectors that we have high expectations of that didn't work out?

I've been thinning the herd myself. Hoping to get down to Two.

I'm following that same trend - moving from the Tesoro house to strictly White's



Tesoro: Cortes
White's: XLT | TreasurePro | MXT Pro | MX Sport | VX3 | V3i

I would agree I have two V3i machines, I've tried others and There is No comparison in my opinion. I will add it's easy to really destroy the V's capabilities if you don't set it up right for your search area and It takes time to learn to use it and set it up right.

I read that the V3 can be a turn on and do then again ...
some say you have to set it up right?

Can anyone tell me what specifics are there in setting
it up right?

Thanks!
Larry
