Rabid is a good term. I never rely on VDI or tone information as its rarely right. True battery state though is a real plus and many VDI machines will keep you informed of whats happening in that respect in real time with the batteries under load.
Should also say if VDI is so bad why did Tesoro introduce it to their range with the rather heavy Toltec 80 and 100 models ? Its still there in the Hawkeye and Cortes models.
Weight was the great selling point after the uMax models were introduced, cheap machines with excellent warranty if you are in the U.S. Fairly fast recovery speed with most models but now lagging behind in that respect. Lack of useful features like tracking (though the Lobo Supertrac/Wolftrax can in the all metal mode only, but they lack track inhibit), no twin, triple or multifrequency models which would be useful for your wet beaches.
Think and try before you buy. For travelling and to keep in the trunk of your car they are hard to beat but the company has been sitting on its hands to long and is going to have to pull something out of the bag soon, not just the odd filter tweak.
