Well Monte, those are fair questions. Those two units, the V3i and the MX Sport are the units i'll be bringing. The V3i will be outfitted w/ the 6.5" concentric and i'll bring the 6x8 SEF along. The MX Sport will only have the 7" DD. The 7" has an open web, so a bit tougher to swing around the sage and grass.

As to which i'll use more? I intend to use the V3i more as i simply have more confidence (3+ years vs. 6 months). All of my previous finds on our trips were with the V3i (or eyeballsthinking)...and it's done fairly well by comparison within our groups. The machines weigh about the same. That said, i'm going to put them both through some rigorous testing and tweaking next week and it could change my mind. I get a lot more data from the V3i, but if the targets are shallow and you can expose them with a quick kick of the dirt, i suppose it doesn't matter as much. Beep, dig. I've not dug many deep targets on our outings to the desert, so there is some limit to the extra information i get from the V3i. Think i dug a token at about 4" last trip over in a town that had been bladed off a few years back and an IHP at about the same - but those seem to be deep over there. And if it rains a bit, well, that's an easy call.

I'll pull my half dime out like you did since i can hit 8/8 with either machine now with an IHP or dime, and see if i can reliably get to 8/8 w/ the half dime w/ either. If i manage to figure it out on position 1, i'll give position 2 a go! Need to tweak gains, delays, filters, frequencies, best data/correlate and a few other knobs to see if they have any measurable effect. Obviously the MX has a few less options to tweak. Good news is once program settings are known, its easy to save the program and adapt others.

Coils can help with the V3i, and usually
