Waiting on some leaks     strick

If I wrote ... that minelab Vanquish will be a multi-frequency detector - that's the information that's approved by Minelab : I quote .... "Minelab wants to offer its new multi-frequency tec

robin  You may not know this but extra detectors is good for holding up wall in your house. That’s what I’ve been telling myself to justify having more than one.  The day one will do it all

Well that confirms it's name, The Minelab Victory.  Has a nice ring to it ? I don't think it's too far away if they're doing that!

Thanks for the post.

Minelab is suppose to come out with the MDS-10 soon also I thought... It was trademarked last year. Also they just trademarked in Australia on April 17th something called Super-D, which they currently call their 19" coil for the GPZ, but why trademark now ????

That looks like an SDC update. But the military version. Would be great to see an SDC updated with some kind of discrimination. I use it as a patch hunter mostly in very remote areas and a GPX level of discrimination would be a must buy for me. And it seems it should be no problem technology wise for them.

Going by what i have tried to find out and it isn't much . I think its going to be a replacement for the Excalibur . 

Might be wrong and i would like a replacement for the ET / CTX . But i think the Excal.

According to everyone,... the new Minelab model should come out this year ... And if it's called Victory-so it certainly won't be a low or mid end detector.

Victory ... - I think it's a detector ... pretty much a class over the Equinox...

Where did the name Vanquish come from ? 

When I talked to someone in the know that wouldn't go into detail. They didn't deny the name. 

Vanquish sounds better. Victory is to much Ship in it.

      Adds iron volume and some other stuff. https://www.minelab.com/usa/vanquish-software-update-1
      VANQUISH 540 Iron Volume Control
      Detecting in heavy iron trash is enhanced with the new Iron Volume Control feature. 10-step adjustments let you decrease the volume of iron all the way down to a whisper, while leaving desirable targets (non-ferrous) loud and clear. To engage Iron Volume Control, simply hold down the All Metal button, while simultaneously using the Volume buttons to adjust to your liking.
      General Improvements for All VANQUISH Models
      The upgrade also includes improved battery handling capability for all models, as well as a new low battery alert.

      Anyone who spends much time comparing targets with a Equinox and a Vanquish knows that a Vanquish will hit most targets an Equinox will hit. The performance is closer than people may want to imagine for most normal metal detecting, making Vanquish a genuine value.
      Vanquish came out with a different set of coils than the Equinox, to the chagrin of many Equinox owners, since they are not compatible.
      What is interesting is that the Vanquish coils are quite a bit less expensive, even in cases where they are physically larger than the Equinox coils. Part of this may be the windings and tolerances possibly being different. Vanquish coils seem thinner and lighter, and being able to keep the price down on them is critical to keeping the price of the detector down also. However, it is a mistake to think retail price has anything more than a loose connection to manufacturing cost. The rule is charge what the market will bear. And true story for anyone that wants to bother with the research - accessory items for expensive detectors often cost a lot more than the same accessories for lower price detectors. This is because most people who spend a lot on a detector are willing to spend more on accessories. Just ask any car dealer who sells both inexpensive and expensive cars.
      So while I do not know the exact details, the fact is Vanquish coils sell for les because they have to. Nobody is going to buy an accessory coil if it sells for as much as the detector itself. This adds to the value proposition however. Not only does a Vanquish get very close to Equinox performance for a lot lower price, but the accessory coils can be had for quite a bit less.
      I kind of get now why Minelab did not make a set of these coils for Equinox. Would Equinox owners be willing to pay about $100 more for the same coils across the board (even though they would be different coils)? People will say, no, just sell me the coils for the Equinox at the same price. But Minelab can't do that - it undermines the Equinox detector and accessory price structure. If that seems unfair, let me remind people the 11" round coil for the CTX 3030 sells for $349, a good $120 more than the 11" coil for Equinox! Minelab may have decided to simply avoid that can of worms by keeping the lines completely separate and distinct as far as the coils go.
