Hi all, newbie to this forum but not to detecting. Been detecting on and off for over 30 years. I aways had an interest in history and started collecting coins and mud larking the river Thames in the 1950`s. Graduated to dump digging in the early 70`s and when detectors became available bought a Best Q tone T.R. machine.Graduated to a Garrett GTAX 500, then a Whites DFX and recently a Whites V3i which I`m still learning. Born in London but moved to Gods country (Scotland) in 1968. Am now retired and can spend more time detecting when my wife lets me!! Had some success with hammered coins etc. over the years but the part of Scotland I live in doesn't throw up a lot of finds. Attended a few M.D. rallies in England over the years and hope to do so in the future!! ;D

Hello John, welcome aboard! I think I speak for a lot of readers and lurkers when I say I'd love to hear more about the performance etc. of the Whites V3i!
