Default White Spectra V3i

So my dad decided to buy one. Now I'm working on learning that along with my F5. I've only got to play with it indoors but so far its pretty amazing.

There are so many functions and screens to learn. It has its basic programs but all can modified to your liking.

Default Polar Plot!

Make sure to learn the polar plot. It is an excellent quick way to decide to dig. Straight lines = coins, wild circles or lines usually= junk.

I hunted with V3I today. I used the programs loaded in the machine. I mostly hunted a freshwater beach in beach mode with some modifications. Found some clad, many pull tabs and bottle caps. The whole area was very trashy. Exited to hit a tot lot with it next weekend.

Thought about an F5 but don't think I'm quite ready. Got an F4 this weekend. Gonna work my way up to the F5 if the reviews are still favorable.
