The Vanquish 440 with the 10” coil is beautifully balanced and makes a great grab and go detector, a loaner or a wonderful beginner detector with all of the features needed to be successful at metal detecting. Just like the Vanquish 340, it will detect targets very accurately down to 10” even in mineralized soil, it works well on salt water beaches and it has three features that are not on the 340 which are an excellent pinpoint function, the ability to customize discrimination patterns, and the great iron identification tool, the horseshoe button. For a person on a tight budget that wants to do some park, field and beach hunting, this inexpensive, easy to use detector would be an outstanding choice.

Not a review, but a chart of the Vanquish 440 correlation between the target IDs, tone breaks, and the notch bars - which I believe is correct and helpful, but missing from the manual - before the original post is buried deep.


The target ID scale on this detector is non-linear, with the middle range between 0 and 20 stretched and both ends compressed.

The break points between tones, except for one case of Low-Med in Jewelry Mode, do not correspond to break-points between notch segments.

The yellow values, below the target identification guide graphics, represent the standard response (+/-1) for modern (Rama IX/X, 2008+) Thai Baht coins, when the target signal is strong.
