I agree with both you and Sven.

The twin toggles are not too annoying, IF I wanted to use them often, but I agree with you that one single, center-positioned toggle would have been just fine with me. I stated that in my review.

On the other-hand, the Vista 'X' is not a detector I would routinely use in an urban environment for Coin Hunting a well manicured private yard or grassy park. Instead, it would be used mainly like a good ol' Tesoro in those very Iron nail contaminated ghost towns and similar sites. Places I seldom use TID, which it doesn't have, or even use a Pinpoint feature. Just go about my slow-and-methodical search and investigate any good to iffy 'Beep!'

That means I isolate the targets in the slow-motion Disc. mode, maybe do a simple toe-scuff to remove any offending surface junk, and just do the little 'wiggle' to isolate and then recover the coin, token or other non-ferrous object. No need to use the Pinpoint function or seldom the Alt. Disc. which serves very little practical purpose.

In that sort of routine hunting, it's not that the twin toggles would be difficult to use, just that if anything they might just be in the way.
