  1. Not sure if this has been asked, sorry if it has. Will the Equinox coils work on the Manticore? Is that a known yes, an unknown or a known no?
  2. With regard to posting a comment, attaching an image and finding gold - I reckon you’re doing pretty damn good Harvey! 😉 Hope your health improves to allow a lot more prospecting 👍🏻
  3. Not for me. Patiently waiting and hoping for a CTX upgrade. Even the Manticore is not doing it for me but will be interested in how end users find it.
  4. Agree 100% The ridiculous variety of audio options is tying the end user up in knots and I don’t think it is working to keep us buying Minelab products. We are looking at other detector manufacturers or aftermarket products. I found the WM08 to be a great option that allowed the end user to use their own, favourite headphones, earbuds or sports headphones. Why it has not been continued with the GPX6, Eq 700 & 900 and the Manticore I can’t work out. They already had the transmitter and receiver. It wasn’t redundant like BT LL already is. Why not use it 🤷🏼‍♂️
  5. Others certainly care and have certainly mentioned it but have given up hoping for one 😕 The 6X10 or whatever it is on the Gold Monster would be perfect on the Nox. And they already have the design, the mould, etc. Surely it would be an easy adapt??? Maybe not 🤷‍♂️ Frustrating.
  6. Out of interest Steve, how many of these were you involved with re: testing/development?
  7. That’s harsh. JP doesn’t build them or work on the quality control line. Like Steve H, he can only suggest and advise, it is up to Minelab what the final outcome is.
  8. And I think this is exactly why the majority of us stick around. Thanks for all you have done and hopefully continue to do 🙏 The extra competition can only mean good things for detectorists and the Axiom feels like genuine competition. I am really hoping someone near me buys one and I get to have a play and make some comparisons in my ground. Look forward to seeing more Axiom nugget pictures on here very soon 👍
  9. I see Gerry has already responded. 1 thing to add is that Garrett have 3 DD options straight off the bat. I actually really like the DD on the GPX6 but hate the size/shape. A little 10X6 option would've been a great addition. Hopefully that comes from the aftermarket teams but Garrett have sure made a statement by having 3 mono/3 DD options at release.
  10. Brother in law advised he saw a vid of a bloke warning the same thing. Got a bacterial infection that ate away a lot of his mouth/cheek. Good practice to avoid.
  11. Hi GS, thanks for checking it out more. I did get on their U.S. website and went through to checkout but it then said that it could not be shipped to my location. All good, we have 2 distributors here in Oz and one currently has $300 off as a bit of a deal. Unfortunately I don’t want to purchase right at the moment due to REALLY high river levels. With only a 1 yr warranty I don’t want to buy until I can commence using it 🤷🏼‍♂️
  12. Hi TTT, Glad to hear it is going well. Just wondering who you purchased through - Detect-Ed or underwater.com.au ? Are you using in salt or fresh mainly? Cheers, N.E.
