Glenfiddich said "The Blisstool is a very complex machine which has no visual screen and looks like it's NOT suitable for the faint hearted or the newbie either and it is the sort of detector which would welcome the warrant of any help offered as it looks to be so very complex indeed especially with the bigger models....."

Hi Glenfiddich, and fellow visitors to this welcome section of the forum. Yes, a lot of people do think the Blisstool looks a bit intimidating what with all it's knobs and switches. It's not really that bad though, as a lot of them can be left permanently in position or at least returned to previous positions after having ground balanced. I actually found it easier to set up than digital detectors that require scrolling through menus and sub menus. Once you've done it a couple of times, as with most detectors, it's not something that worries you.

That's probably where they excel- hoard hunting and finding some deep remnants of other hoards where the shallower coins have already been recovered. Apart from that they're great on "worked out" club sites for finding deeper coins etc. that all the other detectors have missed.

I don't think anyone would want to dig such deep holes :-O however if you were searching an area which was renowned for finding Roman or Celtic coins then this might just be the thing to eek out that one or two deeper coins or even a hoard ::g and I have seen first hand a Roman hoard of over 700 bronze coins being excavated by a professional archaeologist and the finds were buried in a small vase and neatly stacked in rows (so it wasn't a spilled hoard) and at a depth of around 2 feet deep and now I'm thinking twice about buy my CTX 3030 and am now thinking of getting a Blisstool instead ::g B-) and it's a lot cheaper too ::g

I had the V3 & now have the V5, yes they look daunting but as muddy fingers says with machines like say e trac (which I also have) you scroll through lots of different setup scenarios for different sites. The Blisstool is just the same but instead of scrolling you just turn the knob.

Not had a lot of time to get out with my V5 but first impressions are that its easier to use now that it has inbuilt stabilisation, for me discrimination seems easier & setup easier also.

I agree with redwulf500. Everybody seems to say the V5 is easier to use, so I would go for that. I stick to my V3 as I'm quite happy with it but if you haven't already got a Blisstool then getting the V5 seems a better bet.

I'm thinking of selling my V3, not because I don't like it, but because I am not using it that much on my current sites. I may lean towards a V6 in the future.

Hi guys
Two points, the Blisstool may look like a complex machine for a newbie, but simple research of trusted videos and forum reports allows a user to set up and go the day they get there machine. I had never used an analogue machine before buying my V5 and I grasped the basics after a few days of use!
Anybody looking for a trusted, tried and tested base set up for their Blisstool, they are available in the Blisstool section on this forum or the Blisstool forum. Stick with the trusted information you will find on either of these sites and you will not go wrong. I would never be afraid of how a machine looks, if I can get it with no previous experience with analogue, anybody can ::g

Always good to hear users experiences and nobody had mentioned how to get base settings!
And your welcome :D

So would you recommend getting the V5 over the V3 :-/ :-/ I read somewhere that there were a batch of V3's which had a fault of some sort so maybe I should stay well clear of the V3 but I am VERY interested in getting one as a secondary detector as i have a few sites which I'm sure i could find the deeper stuff that my Deus cannot reach :-O ::g

Hi Glen, can only say as I find, owning the V3 & now the V5, for me the V5 is a definite move forward. I find it less tiring on my ears as the signals do seem easier to read/understand & with the stabilisation mode set its less chattery. I had a gold coin with my V3 but so far not much with my V5 but not really been out with it that much to be fair.

I will say tho that I don't find the V5 as tiring to use as the V3 was. Just my opinion of course but hope this helps.

after watching quite a few vids on these machines its making me quite interested in them. my only concern is all those nobs :-L think i would spend most of the day wondering if its set at its best for the particular field i was on, it dose look a bit daunting to say the least

Yes please remember to stay on topic, there are some interesting replies in this topic that would be better suited elsewhere in this new forum, some replies could be new topics in their own right! ::g
When a topic goes off topic interesting and useful information gets lost or is much harder to find.
