  1. It was very tempting to give the Vanquish a 5 star rating, not because it's the best metal detector available, but it certainly seems the best available in it's price range. It's a powerful high performance detector in a price range you would not until recently expect such a good detector. It's very similar in performance to the much higher priced Equinox, it just lacks the advanced features of the Equinox such as adjustable iron bias, 50 tones, water proofing and so on. The 540 has Iron bias but it's only got two options which are low and high. For someone new to detecting it's the pe

  2. This is a well made, well thought out and extremely deep, powerful detector. The switchable frequencies (5/ 14 & 20 kHz) and make it super versatile in any conditions. All programs and features are visible on screen--simple to customize for the novice but with the most advanced discriminate and tough ground features available. Unbelievable to have this kind of power and fidelity in a water machine! Also--the best audio of any machine I've used--great separation in iron and the new 10" coil is a great addition. Love this detector!! cjc

  3. Recently purchased the XP ORX. A family member gave me a generous dollar amount Amazon gift card. I had nothing to spend it on since I'm not a Prime customer and I was sort of missing my former Deus. I had read a lot of speculative reviews (how can you write a review without having one in your hands to use) and some really negative ones too which had lots of seemingly inaccurate information. So I was eager to give the ORX a try once it became possible, money wise. I sold my Deus because of the lack of ID normalization for the HF coils which made coin and jewelry detecting no fun with them

  4. Hi, I have never used an Omega 8500. I have read that it has improved EMI shielding. I have owned the earlier version, the Omega 8000. The O8 is an excellent detector. I owned a version 4 with the 1/8" and 1/4" headphone jacks. This detector had two modes: all metal and discrimination. It reminded me a lot of the F19/Teknetics G2+ but at a lower transmit frequency and better audio features. Its major drawback was it suffered heavily from EMI interference at least in my area. It was impossible to turn the gain up above 50 even with frequency shifts and using the all metal mode was not ple
