    V3i with 950 Coil

    I just purchased a used 3 mth old V3i from someone who had changed the stock coil to a new Eclipse 950 coil. Am I giving up much to leave this coil on there? I was thinking of putting a 6 x 10 Eclipse coil on to use most of the time. I was wondering on your thoughts...

    The stock 950 is a great all-round workhorse. Its probably the best beach coil, and will see as deep as the 10"DD in light to moderate mineralization. While the depth is better than the 6X10"DD, the latter coil will give you better target separation. Unless you are workin' a trashy area, the 950 will do a standup job for ya' ....

    I'd hunt with the 950 'till I found enough goodies to pay for a 6X10"DD ....

    Good luck and good hunting !!

    Thanks guys. I haven't used it enough to understand much. I first used it in factory Coin & Jewelry and ended trying Deep Silver. I liked the way the detector acted with the Deep Silver program. I'm anxious to warm the detector up some more. My father started me on a Whites 66TR years ago and went to the 6000 series next. They were pretty impressive for that time period.

    White's V3i - 10DD, Super 12, Eclipse 9.5 and 5.3, BullseyeII. Garrett Pro Pointer.
    Tracy- the 9.5 will serve you very well. The best thing about your combo is that you can tweak the V3i to do what you need it to do with any coil. With some practice, testing, and playing- you can customize the programs to do it all with one coil pretty good.
    If you have a really trashy area set one version of the C&J program with a slower swing speed, faster recovery delay, discriminate out or silence a few more VDI's in the pop top or foil ranges and learn to watch the 3 spectra graphs strengh bars change as you pinpoint and make real small moves around a possible target . In a clean area, run wide open strong and deep. I hunt silver in another tweaked C&J program- Set silver dime and Quarter VDI's to sound off about 20 points higher than anything else. Gives you a real jolt of excitement to hear a real sharp edged high pitch bark out of the blue!

    Most importantly- always refer back to this forum and some of the pros as any problem you have- has probably been discussed in detail in the past 10 pages of topics!!!
    Good luck hunting- you got a great tool!

    Welcome to the forum,, The 950 is Whites best all around coil ... I use the 6x10 most of the time, just for the seperation factor..
