PA forum suggests it might be called Minelab Vanquish and some sort of new PI tech.  I dare say no one knows until it’s announced.  

Steve H may get his lightweight, under 2k PI after all!  😉

I'm not sure its a PI. Its a multi IQ machine so that tends to indicate treasure unit. CTX3030 replacement maybe?

I heard rumors at a recent GPAA gold show that Minelab was releasing a low to mid range detector to counter and one up the Simplex. So, something Multi IQ between the Go-Find/X-Terra  and the Equinox.

I am sure all their new VLF's will be multi IQ from now on.  The Go-Finds use VFlex (X-Terra technology).  The X-Terra's days are numbered as the Equinox is it's replacement.

I'd rather new PI tech to combat the Fisher AQ and a lightweight PI gold detector.

CTX sales must have dived from the Equinox release so it makes sense if it's a CTX replacement.

Hopefully Minelab now understands reasonable pricing of detectors helps sales like they did with the Nox.

Info coming in few months...release in november for christmas maybe?

maybe just once Minelab will provide a detector with a longer shaft that a tall person can use comfortably and give you a control box cover to protect your big $$ investment! ...and plastic that doesn’t break and charger wires that are not thin as hair. Its the design package that lacks not the platform.

im a lover not a minelab hater, i have had most gold models since the 2000, its just that they never listen

I'm hearing you RDD,

Even way back when I was a Minelab dealer I wrote to them numerous times about the lack of quality of their chargers, curly cables, and the fact that the shafts were too damned short ! They only thing they did improve was the curly cables, which are at least serviceable now ! The shafts are still too short for anyone about 5 foot 10 or taller ! The wires on the chargers are still very light weight and fragile, and not up to the job when you are knocking about out bush ! The wires for the SDC headphones at the plug were a disgrace !

For the amount of money we pay, and their supposed " military spec ", some of the stuff they produce is just crap !

Steve the doubt minelab cause to users and dealer sales by dribbling a release over 6 or maybe nine months is good for no-one. I believe they should at least say whether it is a premium relic or gold model or budget...whatever...so they dont cause anguish and a hold on purchases over the whole spectrum of users and models
