I actually had a Passport 8500 X50 for about a year and this summer I switched over to a V1. I think the arrows are quite nifty, it falses alot more, but the range and sensitivity of it is just amazing. I am very happy with it so far! I have been browsing for a bit and have found tons of useful info about my detector that I did not know before. I look forward to chatting with all of you fellow detector users in the future!
