You picked a good day and good location to check out the V - 540.

The Vanquish 540 with 5 x 8 Double D coil is a fun detector to use. The ergonomics are very comfortable and it is a very easy to use unit with minimal adjustment functions. Better yet, it works!

Knowing there is not a perfect detector made we should all consider owning two or three or four detectors that can complement each other in some way, and the V-540 is a good detector for folks to consider. It's one that I keep at the ready on my back seat.

As for finding nails and such, we will with just about any detector out there and it's just one of those things we need to live with. It's nice that you found two nice silver Barber dimes while dealing with annoying trash. Proof that the operator was doing their job as well as the detector in hand.

And as far as search coils go, I like most of the mid-size 5X8 and 5X9½ DD sizes, especially when they are lightweight and have the rod-mount ears in a good location.

Best of success on your next trip a field
