Product Description

The Vortex VX9…

VX9


MORE POWER THAN VX7

The Professional’s model. Full three-tiered MD-MF Target ID display (including two ferrous scales to help identify unwanted iron trash). Includes Multi-Salt and additional frequency choices. Additional Recovery Speed controls. FAST Mode for competition hunts and high-trash search areas. THIN COINS Mode for detecting fine, lower conductive coins such as hammered silver and thin gold coins.
FULL THREE-TIERED MD-MF TARGET ID SCALE
When operating in Multi-Frequency, the VX9’s Target ID system displays a non-ferrous scale and two ferrous scales to help identify unwanted iron trash. Complex targets may indicate on both scales simultaneously.

More target information . . . so you can make better dig decisions!
THIN COINS MODE
Perfect setting made specifically for going after small thin coins - hammered silvers, tiny ancient gold coins, etc.




Faster recovery speed.

Enhanced Response on select Target ID range.

Target Response reduced for common ferrous items and high-tone targets.

FAST MODE
Designed for use in trashy areas, where abundant trash can mask adjacent coins. Also ideal for use in competition hunts. Includes fast recovery speed and reduced iron volume.
3 LEVELS OF RECOVERY SPEED CONTROL
Choose from three recovery speeds. Increased recovery/reactivity speed helps you more clearly distinguish adjacent targets. A great benefit for competition hunts and for hunt sites filled with metallic trash that might otherwise mask good targets.
INCLUDES BEACH MODE AND MULTI-FREQUENCY SALT OPERATION!
Utilize the power of MD-MF Technology and Multi-Salt operation. Smooth operation and deep Target ID accuracy along wet salt beaches and in the surf. Fully submersible to 16 feet.
WIRELESS READY!
Built-in Z-Lynk wireless technology means you can search without cords attached to your detector.
