  1. Hello there, I'm still researching on mandymoore and I stumble upon a few video that the manicure tester mentioned about -99 to 0 for ferrous target ID (if I'm not mistaken). My question is what I can expect or how can I utilize from this -99 to 0 range data when detecting on the field. I'm sorry if this question has been answered before, I cant find it. Happy hunting wherever you at.
  2. \ yeah, the top ferrous region is FE and the bottom region is F2 like on the equinox. I'm wondering does any aftermarket bone conduction earphone can be use with manticore wirelessly. I cant take risk using the full cup headphone because of environmental awareness since at my detecting site people has encounter wild animal like python, cobra, crocodile and wildhog etc
  3. Wow Nox 800 is high end machine? all this time I thought the nox is mid level machine. That put some things into perspective. I will hold of to buy another detector for now. I guess I need to think like IF I buy a another high end detector I'm paying for the features like 2D screen or XY screen, detail customise tones control. vibrating handle 🙄 etc. If its come with extra (even few millimeters ) detection/ good target ID at depth, its a pleasant bonus. Another side of my brain said "just buy the goddam detector. Enjoy life while I can. Lets vs the ground and nature together"'. Thank you again for all the response, information's and experienced.
  4. Thank you to Mr Elnino77 for the questions, video and information's that made me think. For now my conclusion are even the high end machines fighting/squeezing for the last detections depth. Maybe some machines have an advantage of few centimeter's more (or millimeters for that matter) of detection depth or maybe some machines can get just a few millimeters more of accurate target ID at maximum target ID detection depth from other machines and I willing to pay hundreds or thousand of dollars for that centimeters. What is wrong with me....
  5. I think manticore will fit my hunting needs/conditions from what i research, I mean the manicure give the sensitivity up to 35 and if its follow the same equinox sensitivity, seldom I used max sensitivity of 25 due to EMI and ground falsing. Hopefully the boosted EMI thingy works. Anyway I'll wait for hands on usage by detectorist when it come out. In meantime I'll hunt with my trusty buddy Mr Noxy. Thank you for the feedback. Happy hunting wherever you are.
  6. Thank you for the response. For me when I jumped to the equinox 800 4 years ago it helped me a lot on the site that I detect mostly in oil palm plantations which is mineralized dependent on day/tides (the site is near river close to the ocean as I noticed I lose depth when high tides). I love the nox so much so I bought all the minelab coil and I'm happy with all the purchase except the 15' coil though due to the fact that I cant increase sensitivity because its introduce more EMI so its the more or less like 11' coil . I only get the coverage advantage over the 11' coil. There was some scenario which I wondered if the high end detector help the signal clarity or even gives more depth on dig or not to dig signal. For example : a) by using equinox Field 1 (11' coil) sensitivity of 21-23/recovery speed of 5 on this hunt. Got a faint repeatable signal that doesn't register on ID that made me stop and investigate. After a few slow sweep I got negative ID on the nox. b) Increased the sensitivity to 25 and lower the reactivity to 3 ( I usually do not use the recovery speed below 5 because for me the tones is like dragging? and its hard to decipher with that kind of dragging). With this setting i get jumpy ID bouncing around 18 to 30. c) below is the picture of the hole i dug and the item I found in the hole Picture 1: I hope this picture can give the perception of depth. The soil is wet clay, when in dry climate the clay is hard like a stone brick. Picture 2: 280 years old coin Here come the Deus 2 and Motleycorew. I've done some research regarding Dues 2 online since I cant test it physically in my country. There's practically no one in my country that I know of using the XP product. If lets say, I decide to buy the XP deus 2, there will be no support whatsoever from XP that close to me. For minelab product, there is no problem with support. For now my eyes is on XP Deus 2, because it abilty to choose much more single frequencies compare to minelab with the hope of the Deus 2 single frequency mode is similar with Deus 1 (as i read and watch video on deus 1) performance and tonal wise. For mild ground with dense iron I will be using the single frequency mode on deus 2. At least that is my thinking for now until the manticore been tested and review on this forum. Thank you again for reading and reply.
  7. Hello there, long time forum observer here and thank you to Mr Hershback for this great website. I'm wondering if detectorist really need to have maybe a small advantage in performance and features on high end detector vs the mid range detectors? or even maybe some of the beginner detectors. As in my conclusion by observing information's from this forum (since i didn't have the resources to test out by myself) there are very small difference in performance between the legend, equinox and deus 2. I guess what I'm asking is where/in which scenario the high end detector shines from all other detector to justify the price. Thank you for reading and sorry for my bad English. Happy hunting wherever you at.
  8. Hello Chuck, thank you for the response. After doing some basic troubleshooting, found out that the problem occur due to water leaking into the control box from yesterday waterfall hunt, I think. I always checked the connectors before going into the water. Here is my dilemma since my awesome MX sports still under warranty; I'm on a 4 days road trip for relic hunt with secondary objectives going for freshwater hunt and have cost us around USD 200 on expenses and 9 hours away from hometown. Today is just a second day. We can't go back now, its not fair to my friends and we don't have spare metal detector too. I don't want to cancel the trip due to my faulty metal detector since we have planned this trip a long time ago. And what would I do without my beloved MX sport for another 2 days ?. Long story short, I decided to open up the control box to dry up the circuit board and the display panel and hoping it will work (BTW I'm doing these because I'm familiar with electronics board, microelectronics). As you can see there are vapor inside the display Water droplet inside the control box I won't upload the control circuitry since its was the intellectual property of Whites and its wet. Still don't know where the water coming from but its works for now.
  9. Thank you Steve, the finds was from 17th centuries in a palm oil plantations ?
  10. hello fellow detectorist out there, Hi from a land far far away, my maxy have problem which when i turn it off , i cant turn it back on. The only way to get it to turn on is to pull out the battery altogether. Even when its on, it will turn off randomly. The way its shut down is like something pressed the on/off button ( what im trying to say is its turn off randomly with beeps like proper shutdown. Sorry cant describe it properly since english is not native. ) I have already done the factory reset and change new batteries, but the problem are still there. Is there any way i can rectify this problem on my own, if possible. Sending back to Whites will cost me money ( which i can add a little bit more money and buy new coil ?) and time. Thank you for your time and suggestion. Below is the findings for an hour of detecting before the problem arise ??
  11. Hi guys , Tq for the reply, now it getting clearer, and what the difference between coin jewelry + salttrack on mode and beach mode, using both at beaches
  12. Hello there, After few months of heavy used at waterfall, beach and dirt, I'm happy that the MX sport didn't have crack, leakage issue . I'm still learning the language of the MX sports.. Still didn't understand about the threshold, what it use for, what does it tell me when the hum disappear in a brief of time especially at high mineralized ground like beach. And I still not confident using the relic mode, too much information its giving out for me . Thank you very much. HH
  13. Hello Shelton, I got my Maxy last week. Still testing everything out. I tried to simulate your problems, got few buttons but none of them double layer, i will try everything double layer from now. So far Maxy performs well, no tones/seperation issue, no pinpoint problem, no crack but then again I just got mine. Hope you can find the solutions for the bug u have now. HH
  14. Hi Tom, Thank you for the reply, I really hope the China distributor are aware of the MX Sports problems and not sending out wrong version. Its weird i didnt see any recent post of the mx sport reviews/comment .
  15. Hi Steve and Chuck, Thank you for the reply, In all my research to collect the good, the bad and the ugly of the MX sports, I followed your journey and Steve comment/review? on MX Sports very closely. At first its was 50-50 decision on to buy or not to buy the MX sports until chuck was satisfied with his MX Sport performance. Ill be contacting White to see either they doing international shipping and other things that need to be address before purchase. Thank you again HH to all
