  1. I am happy with the coils they have . The Vanquish works well with its coils and the Nox works well with its coils . I think i might have to buy that 15 inch coil for the Nox soon , again !
  2. I quite like the Vanquish . I have used my 540 4 times and found 2 Gold rings on the first search and a few Silver rings along with £60 in coinage. I bought the Nox 800 again and that seems to find things but the Gold is missing this year . On Friday i will take the 540 to the beach for the long tides and get on the sand . The only thing i have an issue with on the Vanquish is that when using it on the beach if there is Seaweed the Vanquish sounds off on it . Minelab needs to sort that one out . The Nox doesn't do it on my settings . As for my moan about headphones in th
  3. I have found suitable phones and bought 6 of them. Maz Super Red's are the best since the old Gray Ghost NDT . perfect for Minelab machines.
  4. Pity , I have seen that the Vanquish loves Crown caps .
  5. I think my next search will be with ET , after that the 540 . Probably Saturday next week. Work till then.
  6. Yesterday i took my XP ORX to my dealer and swapped it for the Vanquish 540 Pro . I know i have said a few things in the past about it and i said i wouldn't buy it . Well i have . When i opened the box i saw the red (still yuk) , thank %$&* for a box cover lol I unpacked it and put it together and apart from the awful colour i thought it was well made . Apart from the battery cover which i think will cause trouble . I think there will be a few breakages . I also noted the different shade of red of the cover. The control box buttons layout is fine but like other machine
  7. Getting back to topic . When are we going to see some real tests on the Apex ? Like beach and depth and recovery speed trials ? So far its been a bit lame , and i see that the machine might be released for sale in the next month . Just wondering myself and a dealer has thought it too , why the 6 in width of the coil ? Is it because the recovery speed is slow ? The Nox has an 11 inch round coil and is fast and so does the Deus . I am used to slow recovery speeds but would like answers to the above questions or my money could be held back.
  8. Yes the ET is my main machine. But a cheaper backup scout is worth having. If the 540 can make its money and pay for itself then i wont make a loss if i sell it later . I always try to find enough to cover any money lost when selling . Thank goodness its got a box cover !
  9. Yes i know. Not all the ability of the Nox is bad. I do have new headphones that work well with my Minelabs and i have adapters so the 540 is worth having . I wanted to sell the ORX anyway so might as well see what all the fuss is about with the 540 . And not being waterproof it will be easily repairable if it went wrong after warranty if i kept it that long . I live only 40 miles from Steve Cox the Minelab repairer here . Taken machines to him in the past.
  10. Its expensive enough. I dont like non repairable machines that much and would rather just replace early or not buy again.
  11. I have had over 75 Golds on those beaches. 55 with FBS . The Nox just doesn't cut it for me. But I am getting the Vanquish. I want a cheappie backup . Though that could be said of the Apex too. I am selling the ORX to pay for the Vanquish. I will also use my adapters and Maz Super Red headphones on the 540. Damned good sounds. Its been quite hard this year on the beaches with all this virus. And our beaches are mostly Silver magnets which I have had lots so far. £665 in coinage to on 30 trips. But for me it was the lack of after warranty repair to the Nox box
  12. VLF is pretty much as good in depth at it can be. Its all about recovery speed now. Interesting that the coil is only 6 in wide. Does that mean it is a slow recovery speed? I will compare it to my soon to be had V 540 when get them. But as I use the ET I'm not much bothered with hyper fast recovery speed. Just want damned good target info if anything.
  13. Today i went out with my ET on what is probably the trashiest and difficult beaches in the southeast of the UK . It is where I almost always go and even if the Nox was good in parts of those beaches I could not get decent target info or separation of targets . Today my ET found me more in those areas . Still no Gold this year but that's because of the lack of visitors and the Chinese bug. Afterwards I took my Nox and its coils and other bits I wanted to sell to my dealer and sold them. I have now paid for my Apex and I feel it will be a good machine , its not a main top ender but if
  14. My experience with the Terra 705 over a 8 year period from 2011 to 2018 got me £9850 in coinage and 14 Gold rings and around 100 Silver rings , on top of the finds by the ET and Explorer's I have used in that time . The Terra on UK coinage was very accurate especially in airy sand and shingle . I cannot say the same for the Nox where it comes to numbers . The numbers are shared with so much trash that on my beaches it slows you down. The Nox has found me 7 Gold and around 70 Silver rings over the time I have used it since release. But the finds I found were not outside the scope of the E
  15. The X.Terra are brilliant on dry tops and the numbers were accurate on UK coins. Cashless society is killing that now. Also my thread about headphones applies here. The Nox has 40 numbers and most low tone coins are in most low tone rubbish. On the ET it is so easy . and the tones are brilliant. Again my headphones thread. Minelab need to supply the right headphones with high toned fluty machines. Or depth and difference in target I.d. cannot easily be achieved. Anyway Nox is going. Maybe Minelab will tempt me to a new machine or maybe not ?
