IYO anyway! *-*-* Well, I am not alone on that opinion.

I had 3 V-540 Pro Packs and kind of liked them, except:

1.. No GB ability.

2.. All 3 factory default modes are useless if you try to use the 'Horseshoe' function for All Metal Accept because in all of the different ground I hunted, the fixed GB is either too-
Positive or too-negatove and that results in falsing, especially of sweeping over ineven ground with rocks, bumps, humps, furrows, dips, etc.

3.. I found the red backlight to not be bright enought most of the time I night-hunted.

4.. Battery Life is terrible.

5.. In side-by-side comparisons it fell short on performance i my Nail Board. The Si
Plex + w/5X9.5 DD, and Apex w/5X8 DD both hit 7-out-8 and the V-540 w/ 5X8 DD only got 5 or 6 OK hits

6.. Hunting some typical Coin producing areas at a few parks with Coin Spills with a few clusters of 3 to 5 coins, making contact, resulted in a terrible audio and visual. I found that the result was basically a non dig-worthy report, while the Simplex and Apex performed properly. Zincoln ran into the same issue and posted a photo of the on-ground coin spill.

In general I kind of like it, but not to keep around for where I hunt and with the detectors I have.

Finally had a chance to get out detecting for 20-25 minutes.

Another 20-25 minutes hunt-time with the F75+ w/3X6½ Concentric coil.

I just don't sweep the coil close to the metal cane, but plan to get another wooden cane. N/T
