Curiosity is kinda getting the best of me. I really want to see what the 9500ix is all about. I love my V1, but I'm a curious to see what the passport has to offer in reality and how it works compared to V1 in the real world. I'm thinking about putting it up for trade on craigslist and see if I find anyone who'll trade straight up with me as I can't buy a new detector. The only problem is I'm worried I'll like it more, lol, as I think I actually need the V1 more than the 9500ix but we'll see what happens.
