Re: The V3i vs The Board

Yeah, don't expect much.

I've been detecting as long as Monte (not as much, but as long). I've had many, many detectors. I always built a test garden to compare detectors and coils.

I got a V3i, thinking it was the cat's meow. Computerized select-ability of every function you could think of. The problem?

1) It is slow to respond - main reason it does poorly on the nail board test. That would be OK if you didn't use it for ghost town hunting or where there are a lot of nails and scattered iron.

2) It's biggest fault, wrap-around. Deep silver dimes read as iron and are rejected! How big of a no-no is that? I had another detector (by a big name mfr.) that did that a well. Wrote to the mfr. about it and was ignored. Wrote on forums about it and was blackballed, even though other users confirmed the results.

Metal detector technology, as far as depth, hasn't improved much in 30 years. It is physics limited.
The improvements today come in 2 areas. Weight and speed of response.

Coils can help with the V3i, and usually
