The mail delivered my VX3...put batteries in it and took it to my test garden....wow , blew me away.....tried it with the 950 coil and 6x10 coil......waiting for my ultimate 13" coil .
I got a couple of hunted places I want to try. So far....VERY HAPPY . I have an MXT but this is a different critter for sure.

The weather got nice here so I did a little testing in my yard , I took all my coils , compared them as to strength of hit, ease of use and best signal.....
Seems n my soil the D2 won.
Now to try it in the fields.

How did the 6X10 and the 950 do?

I took it out in the real world today...took the 13" off and used the 6x10 , still seemed jumpy and lots of false non repetable signals....Think I might have been better with an MX7 or MX SPORT

Somebody please correct me if I am wrong but I think most people try to run the V3i or VX3 real quiet instead of high Sensitivity where you don't get those jumpy one way false signals.

Don't get discouraged:confused:. Had the same problem with a 10" Detech Excelerator Coil: went back and did a restore on each program..Helped out a lot.. I could get a 12" deep quarter with the stock 950 coil using one of "Fox's programs" . FOX's VX3 Program



Detectors currently used: Whites VX3; Cen Tech Pinpointer

Detectors used in past;
starting with last to first: Minelab SE Pro, Garrett AT Pro, Minelab E-trac,Teknetics Gamma 6000, Minelab Explorer XS, Whites XLT, Fisher CZ7a, Whites XLT,Garrett Master Hunter CX

Don't take for granted that you can run the V's at 10 or better. Best I can get here is 7 on the gain. Run it where it's stable
