  1. Sounds like a tall tale; those locations don't mesh.
  2. I put mine out there for sale locally to see if I could get some bites.All I got was the bottom feeders looking to lowball the decent price that I offered. I decided to keep it, and just bought an M8 coil. Looking forward to spring time. If anyone needs an M8 coil, my local dealer has one left. PM me for his phone number. ** The coil is sold**
  3. I still have and will keep my 3 Tesoro’s due to their simplicity and no nonsense operation. (Lobo ST, El Dorado, and Silver uMax). They’re also great to have around for other family members to use on occasion.
  4. I had an EVO, I didn’t notice anything superior, except for a little more sensitivity over the TDI 7”. The Coiltek should be similar.
  5. The coil should be around the price of the Eq 900 or 800 6” plus $30, would be agreeable. But at the price of an Axiom 13”, no way! If it is, then good bye Manticore!! It would be price gouging at its finest. 🤔 Don’t be a sucker. 🤪
  6. I've gotten 3 covers and a coil from them and none fit tight!
  7. Garrett has always been outstanding and generous in backing their detectors. I’ll just tape them.
  8. Has anyone had issues with the coil covers falling off? I have. Garrett acts like this is new to them. They sent me another cover for better fitment, but it fit the same. Then they sent a coil and cover, but there was no difference in fitment. NEXT ISSUE: I did an air test win a small gold piece. The Axion detected it at 2.5-3”. I air tested the same piece of gold with my GMX Sport, it detected it at 4-4.5”. This was also the case with the ATX. is the air test the issue?
  9. Maybe like before when the Manticore was not yet available, they’re trying to build suspenseful anticipation, while at the same time losing customers, this time. “IffySignals” received an 8” tester, so they have the coil setup finalized by now. Now, for me, it depends on pricing as whether to keep or sell.
  10. I’m looking to get the 8” myself. Iffy Signals posted a video on gold nuggets with it. It appeared to be more sensitive than the other 2.
