This is the machine that made many people become DeepTech fans, it's a machine that has great all round no nonsense performance and finds items in the ground with ease.
First off, all the controls are within quick reach and easy to adjust, as with all Vista machines it will only take you seconds to get setup and detect in the field, no complicated menus just pure simple effective detecting.
On the faceplate we have the usual control style layout consisting of volume, sensitivity, ground balance and discrimination, but we also have a pinpoint button that can be pressed to perfectly find out where the target is under the coil once located.
On the underneath of the control box we have two toggle switches, these are your boost switch and your discrimination options, all metal, two tone and single tone/silent search.
All-Metal mode is great for archeological work when all metals are to be detected and recovered from the ground.
If you wish for only to hear good targets (non ferrous) items only, then you can do this just with a flick of the toggle switch underneath the control box silence out all Iron (ferrous) signals depending on size.
With the Vista Smart you'll be able to find small and large items with ease, also understand what size targets are and how deep with the audio feedback once learnt, it really has built up a great reputation for its high performance what is always reassuring when when choosing a metal detector.
To sum this machine up would be to say, fast and deep with great all round performance, a detector that truly has fastened its roots into the true greats of detectors made.
