The White’s Spectra V3i upgrade…Get it!
I was privileged to receive one of the early White’s Electronics “Vision” uber-detectors last year. Without a doubt, the most user configurable metal detector on the planet! Initially, all the settings and options can seem a little overwhelming. However…if you take the time to really learn this machine, you will be rewarded. The Vision/Spectra V3i CANNOT be mastered in a week or even a month. This is a detector that GROWS with you as a hobbyist. If you purchase one, be prepared to dedicate some serious time studying various forum posts and experimenting…but, boy, is it worth it!
In part 2 of my ongoing review of the technologically advanced White’s Spectra V3, I was originally going to cover the cool wireless headphones…however, after a trip to the beach for vacation I switched gears and decided to talk a bit about the Spectra V3 as a beach hunter. So here we go…White’s Spectra V3 review #2… Beach Hunting!
White’s new flagship has proudly left port!…the Spectra V3!
Part 1 of however many it takes!
To say there are a LOT of features and options on White’s newest flagship, the Spectra V3, is an enormous understatement! I’ve spent weeks deliberating on the best way to present a review of the Spectra…and I finally decided to break it into phases. If I tried to put everything into one story, I think it would almost be overwhelming! (to me too…trying to write it!) There will no doubt be some outstanding books and tutorials written on this machine. I would strongly suggest buying one of those when they become available (Jeff Foster or Andy Sabisch?).
This first “phase” report is about the packaging, contents and overall new user impressions. As the chapters continue, I will branch out into other aspects such as assembly, air-testing, interface and “real-world” usage.
So here we go!…
White’s Spectra V3 Review, part 1
This time I take apart the Display/control pod! In the first part of this series, I “deconstructed” the under-arm housing. LINK HERE. Upon removing the screws on the control pod, I am very impressed by the use of a nice heavy rubber bushing/seal. So far, all parts appear to be very high quality on the Spectra V3. Each half of the display seat into a recessed groove…nice and water tight! There’s also a beefy rubber grommet/seal where the pod back connects to the back of the handle…once again helping keep the elements at bay….
