Most helpful review for Whites Spectra VX3

VX3 is GREAT!
I started detecting with a Bounty Hunter Tracker IV about 4 months ago. A month later, I decided that I loved the hobby, and I wanted to get my "ULTIMATE" machine to use for the next 10 years.

So I went all out, and ordered the White's Spectra VX3. I was tempted by the V3I, but I decided that the newer VX3 had all the settings I wanted. I am so pleased with my decision, and all my finds (including an 1898 Barber Dime in perfect condition)!

In fact, tomorrow, I'm ordering my wife her own VX3. With a few months VX3 experience, I again considered getting the V3I. However, there's really nothing that I can't already do with my VX3.

Review; Pro's and con's
Having used the GTI 2500 for a year here are some thoughts:

Pros:
Good depth (yeah coins at 8" is nice..)
Fair battery life

Sizing is nice
(helps the newbie, can use pinpoint to "size" a target as well)

Big LCD screen (helps those who have poor sight)
Good pinpoint

Con's:
Heavy

Over priced (yes, really only basic adjustments)

Sound "quality" is bad
(sounds are almost the same)

The headphones that come with sucks

Discrimination is not good for Europe/Sweden
(only practical for USA/North America??)

Coils are heavy.(9.5" and 12.5", epoxy filled?)

Note: it is more suited as a relic machine as it SUCKS for coins.
(you almost have to dig everything)
