  1. I bought a standard Legend in June and used it for the beach. So far it has found £416 and Pence. 2 x 22k Gold rings and 1 x 14k Gold ring and 22 Silver rings. So, I bought a Legend Pro. Once I have sussed all the settings a bit better and have a decent program for land, I will use it on land. It won't replace my Deus 11, but I do want to see what the Legend can do on a nice Roman or Medieval field. It's the first time I have found a machine other than a Minelab that can do what a Minelab can do on beaches. The Deus 11 can but I won't use that on beaches due to its expense and fragility. The Legend is built like an Ox. Very happy.
  2. So it's not it's final price then neither ! I think I have seen enough to suss it as an over priced slightly higher powered Nox. Might have few things on it that would be useful but it's not enough. And far to much money. Pity. But my ET's will keep going for a few years .
  3. I think i will steer clear of the Manticore. I don't think it's going to be as good as the price is going to be. Also, how much is dug at 50 cm? Not a lot. But the big issue i have is that the battery lasts only around 9 hours normal use and if you use the light, vibration and any boosts then it could be as low as 7 hours? Thats what i have been hearing. And the battery takes 7 hours to charge! Not good enough by far. I hit the beaches for way longer than that. And land digs can be longer than that during the longer days of the year. Has Minelab not learned anything about battery tech since the abortion of a battery pack they put in the Explorer all those years ago? Look at the RNB. The arm cup looks less bulk than the Nox one and unless it's made of something else might break like i have seen the Nox one's break. The coil lugs are going to be on the stem, am i the only cynic? that the only reason that they have done that is to save them money when replacing broken parts in warranties and not saving us money after warranties have run out? The lugs still look thin. Maybe the cynic in me thinking ooh squeeze every last gram out of the weight we can! All carbon fibre stem. Looks good but expensive to replace if that breaks. I think using that in the sea doing beach hunting will put an awful lot of stress on the stem. I noticed that on the Nox even with the aftermarket stems. The Legend is rock solid in the oggin. This whole thing about going lightweight may be starting to go too far. I have read that it has 99 Co numbers, that's good but why 99 Fe numbers? And they don't show on the screen. The Nox suffered from EMI issues when i used it on the beaches i go to and even on many digs too. The only way to solve it was to go single freq! And the Minelab ad was?? all that gumpf about making single freqs obsolete. On a video seeing the Manticore it seemed to be like the Nox, unstable? All this for £1799 UK. People find plenty with cheaper machines and hoards get found with cheap Garretts etc. Beaches are getting harder now cashless is here or almost and paying for your new toy might be a lot harder. And with times getting harder out there due to bills and economic woes maybe Minelab brought this out a little late? Anyway even though here in the UK we pay VAT on almost everything £1799 is a bit steep. The Deus can be bought for £1260 with discount and the Legend Pro for £710. I'm not seeing that much other than looks that make me think the Manticore is worth buying. I have learned from past mistakes that first impressions are best ignored. Maybe if Minelab ignored the shareholder's bonus! Still love my E.Trac though.
  4. Looks like a mark 2 Equinox. I'm waiting this one out till all the fuss is over. And the dealer discounts come along . Looks better than the Nox but i have machines that work better than the Nox so i'll wait and see . Anyway when power bills in the UK are going from an average £700 last year to around £7000 early next year i think money might get very tight for many.
  5. The big problem is that every time they have updates the manual changes . I get enough trouble trying to suss the newer machines as it is LOL Apart from the small symbols at the bottom of the screen which are a bit small , i can put up with . The big issue i have is the awkward place they have put the battery indicator . Real hard to see in that corner . As for battery. I might have a problem with mine? I think its using too much . I seem to get at max around 8 hours out of the battery. I am going to go out sometime in the week and run till flat and see what happens . I hope i find Gold , damn its getting harder than a Bishops dick at choir practice !
  6. Does anyone know where in the machine the fitted battery is ?
  7. Hi all , I was wondering if anyone has had issues with their Legend's battery . Whether they are seeing it run down to quickly ? I did a beach hunt in beach mode with no light on , no other known battery wasting things and was down to 2 notches on the indicator with either side of 6 hours use . I wonder if it's why there is a Pro version as they know the machine eats battery power ? Other than this . Not a bad machine.
  8. How exactly do you reset the Legend ? I cannot seem to do it. Or don't know how .
  9. Glad that came out , Going to my local to get the update done tomorrow. Thanks.
  10. Are the 1.08 updates in 1.09 ? I am still in 1.07 and will be updating on Wednesday .
  11. Looks good. I hope it helps with all the issues that i think there are. The big one i have is the issue with jagged edged bottle caps that come in at 30's to 40's . Real issues on my beaches. One other thing you say there . No price increase. On Youtube there is a site by Joe Blogs and he discuses all the issues regarding Russia and Ukraine and how its affecting all the World economies. It seems Turkey is in the real 5h!7storm and inflation is going through the roof. Their inflation on products they make is running out of control and could be 100% soon . That will cause price increases and then the Nox may look cheap ! Not that it will make me buy one . The Legend is far superior to the Nox in quality of build . If the Legend improves after the updates i might even consider another in the next few months and have 2 for the beaches to last me for the next few years.
  12. I bought the Legend a few weeks ago and although i have used it 4 times and found £60 in coinage on the beaches i am not totally happy with it. It needs those updates . I am fed up with having non ferrous signals on jagged Crown caps. I'm not sure of the tones being strong enough too. Anything deeper than 5 inches seem a lot deeper going by the tones .Might be the headphones ? Good machine and very well made though. I sold my Nox a while ago and bought the Deus 11 . The Legend is a replacement for that but not for the E.Trac which i class in a class of its own. Out on the beach this weekend . Deus 11 this time. Would have been the Legend but it needs the updates .
