  1. So I now finally have a Manticore, I'm up to the beach hunting part of my holiday and was intending to take it for a soak pretty quickly after getting it, but looking at the thing it really looks like it might fail in the water, the seal looks like it was done by a 2 year old. Is this how they all look? Looks pretty shonky to me. On the plus side for those of us that bought the Nugget Finder solid Skid plate for their Equinox for prospecting or whatever they'll be pleased to know it also fits the Manticore's 11" coil perfectly.
  2. I opted to put this on this page vs the Manticore specific forum because I plan on talking about other machines in this post. I FINALLY was able to get back to the site of the drained lake...the one where I posted about hunting with the Nox 900 and Deus 2. Well they've fixed the problem at the dam and the water has came up quite a bit from the last time I was there. In fact, it's up so high it actually covered about 1/3rd of the area I hunted with the previous two machines. I wanted to see how the Manticore handled this particular place. As noted in the other thread, this beach is man made and is pretty much this bedrock with sand and lake Muck on top of it. I took a picture of the exposed bed rock for you guys so you could see what I am referring to. So what did the Manticore find there after having previously hunted it with the 900 and D2? How about.....nadda. That's right. Nothing. I will tell you that it behaves similarly to the Nox 900 in that it is very chirpy and falses a lot in the iron that is on this beach, and even with tracking ON, it seems slow at keeping up with the changing ground. I tried a couple different modes here...using the All Terrain General and All Terrain Low Conductor modes. I didn't dig any non ferrous trash, nor coins, nor jewelry. I'm not kidding when I say...nadda. I did try digging some of the very obvious iron false signals just for the heck of it and they were indeed iron. I had the D2 with me and the 9 inch coil on it. I fired it up and rehunted the same area and I will tell you hands down...the D2 is smoother and quieter on this site. It's actually a joy to use there. I did dig two non ferrous targets with it and both were small BB fishing sinkers. ‐---------------- Now here is where things turn. I had been telling my mom about hunting the drained lake and she said something that blind sighted me. She asked "where you hunting the new beach or the old one". Huh? Say what? Well come to find out...the beach I have been hunting is what she refers to as the "new beach". It was built some time in the 1970s. The beach she swam at as a kid...during the 50s and 60s is the old beach. I never knew it existed. She showed me on Google Earth where it was. I said "mom, I've been metal detecting for 30 years and you just now come up with the info of TWO beaches?!!" Haha. and that's where I went to after hunting the "new beach" today. It actually took a bit to locate and I wasn't sure at first. It is loaded with fishing sinkers and such. But then...I started getting deep high tones and started digging coins from the 60s and 70s and then old style ring pull tabs. I was pretty sure at that point I had found it...and signals are everywhere so I'm sure it hasn't been detected much either. I actually just barely scratched the surface there...dug a whole pouch of older clad and 3 rings. Two silver and 1 copper. I am confident more is going to come out of here...just have to work through the trash to get it. I am more than willing to do that. So I stop by my mom's on the way home from the hunt to show her the rings and let her have her pick if she wanted one. Immediately she grabbed one with a red stone in it and ran to the kitchen sink. I didn't think anything of it. Then she came out of the kitchen crying. What happened? Well...unbeknownst to me, I had found her sister's ring that she had lost when they were kids. She passed away last year. Mom never mentioned her losing a ring but she sure knew it as soon as she saw it. It was their grandmother's ring and their grandmother had given it to mom's sister. She lost it swimming back in the 1960s. It was a 925 silver ring with either a red garnet or ruby...I couldn't tell you because it's firmly in mom's possession now. I am stoked to have found a new spot to hit. I didn't even hunt this one with the D2...the Manticore seemed to be doing fine at it. There's no bedrock on this end of the lake...just sand and mud. Some of the coins were rather deep...pushing 10 to 11 inches and sounded very good.
  3. Anyone know about the M8 & M15 Coils price and availability date? They have been up on the Minelab site for a couple of weeks but no one is advertising them yet.
  4. Video posted Nov 26, 2022 Prospector Pete gets the honor of working with Minelab Debby and they put the Manticore to use - "This metal detector is not yet available to the public until early 2023, but we take a sneak peek into the features of this machine, it truly lives up to its name! 2-D graph allows you to visualize what is beneath the ground. This unit allows you to size the target and get an idea of what material it is made of. The armrest is new and is designed for ergonomics and comfort. I am very impressed by this unit! I can not say enough about this very impressive metal detector."
  5. This is a Manticore and Deus 2 side by side park hunt video in a northeast USA park where plenty of silver coins have been found by the detector users in the past using Etracs and CTX. There are several targets that show the Manticore display clearly before digging along with lots of good information. The only thing I wish they had done is have the detectors using external speaker audio. But this was in a public park and they were concentrating on the deepest targets where headphones are essential. No BS, no editorials, no implied bashing and most of all.....no drama. Just two outstanding detectors and two very experienced detector users hunting together with live digs.
  6. BigSky posted this in the Equinox sub-forum. I reproduce his data here, sorted by VDI:
  7. I work 12 hr midnight shifts but couldn't wait to try that Manti out after work. I took it to a little Civil War camp that in modern times, is a hill the people sled down on the rare occasions we get snow in East Tennessee. It's one of those places that's near home and has been hunted so much that you probably really won't miss anything learning a new machine...in fact my last 4 out of 5 times there, have resulted in my going home without digging a single signal. The last time I got anything was when I went to it with the 15 inch CoilTek coil on the Nox, and pretty much dug any questionable signals in hopes of something deep. There's a couple of spots on this place where some kind of forging went on. There's coal cinders, pig iron, and a bunch of iron. My plan for the morning was to play with the Manticore for a while, then break out the D2 with 9 inch coil and hit the iron patches. Well...I never got the D2 out of the truck. Didn't need to. I took the Manticore, turned it on, noise canceled it, ground balanced it, and that was it. Everything else was factory settings. I took about 4 steps and got a signal. 4 way hit...put pops the big piece of brass. I thought it was a folded sword plate at first but don't know what it is. Then the fun began. I was happy with that one recovery. But that wasn't all for the day. I am VERY pleased so far. Ring is a 925 wedding band...no doubt from a sled day. A couple drop minies, camp lead, eagle button, and several clad coins. I like it so far and haven't even dug into the special sauce settings. I was sending my buddy pictures as this stuff was coming out of the ground and he had to come by because he thought I was BSing him on where I was.
  8. The manual is available on Minelab's website: Minelab Manticore Instruction Manual
  9. Here is an interesting test of the Manticore vs the Deus II on a gold bar and a gold ring masked by two nails. Which machine is better at sniffing out the gold?
  10. Looks like Minelab has started to ship these. Minelab made a post on Facebook about 15 minutes ago.
  11. Well Minelab pulled one on me and probably the rest of the world yesterday and released 2 new detectors. With the Manticore starting to move and now we have an updated and more featured Equinox 900, I have questions. Which of the 2 will be best for Nugget Detecting = Prospecting? Many of us know the EQ-800 is by far the best VLF gold detector out there. So to get the few quirks taken care of and then add some features, you/I would think the new EQ-900 is the way to go, or is it? The Manticore claims to have 50% more power and better ID system as well. But only having 1 true Prospecting Mode, makes me wonder? Yes, only time will tell as we get them in the fields, but in reality I'm a little confused. Do we go with the proven or totally new? How about you?
  12. I was browsing my Facebook newsfeed when this little gem popped up from the Minelab page…
  13. Well it’s finally about to happen. Minelab has updated US dealers with a confirmed Price $1599 and Part #. YIPPIE!!!! This must mean that things are starting to come along and hopefully we see/hear updates more frequently as the production moves along. I’m looking forward to this new model and finding out how good it really is. My Staff members and I will be doing our part using it in a variety of states, terrains, hunting styles and situations so we can come up with our own conclusions of how it stacks up to the competition. We also provide this hard earned and sometime long hours of use.. info to our customers to help them make the right choice for their next detector investment. Here's a bone for you all who already own the EQUINOX and waterproof headphones. YES they will work on the Manticore as well. Not many dealers are as well rounded in a variety of metal detecting hunts of different treasures as my Field Experts. We’re also the same guys who’s been offering “Metal Detector Basics” for the new and “Advanced Gold Detector Training” for the Nugget Hunters for the last 25 yrs. I’m pleased to announce we’ll be doing the same with the Manticore and those customers who purchase from us. Be sure to view my website Calendar of Events right after the New Year to see what options we provide for you in 2023. And again, Gerry’s Detectors will be offering the 15% Military Discount to all active and prior US Military. As a Veteran myself, I feel privileged to honor and help those who have served, to get the next detector in your hands. You earned it and so might as well take part in the additional savings. Here’s some of what we have learned so far. Overview MANTICORE with Multi-IQ+ is the most powerful, fastest, and precise metal detector in Minelab’s history. Interestingly, they did not say it’s equal to the Equinox, E-Trac or even CTX-3030. Boy that’s a pretty bold statement, but as always Minelab has been able to back it up, so I expect nothing less. The heart of MANTICORE is its super-charged Simultaneous Multi-Frequency (MULTI-IQ+) engine. This feat of innovation generates an incredible 50% power increase over the best-selling detector series of all time: EQUINOX. I wonder how much depth increase (if any) that will equate to? When combined with advanced 2D Target Identification (ID) and rich audio options, the detectorist has every bit of vital information arriving at their eyes and ears. I’m thinking more to the ID system of the very popular E-Trac and CTX 3030, which I missed on the Equinox. MANTICORE is an unrivalled detecting experience that pushes the boundaries of detecting to deliver more power, more depth, and more finds. Yet to be confirmed, but with Minelab Engineering track record, I’m sure it’s just a matter of time, maybe even days/or weeks? More info MULTI IQ+: Minelab’s revolutionary technology has 50% more power than traditional models and is the highest-powered simultaneous multi-frequency machine on the market.

Those units came into the US in small allotments and then were divided amongst the dealers and how many we ordered. I assure you and just like with the Equinox rollout, I should be able to get more units to my customers faster than many others. Getting on my Pre Order List should be your priority so be sure to email me at gerrys1det@gmail.com No money down needed at this time. So it looks as if Minelab has taken some features from 3 of their top selling/performing VLF type detectors (E-Trac, CTX 3030, Equinox) and combined them with new technologies and improvements for the ultimate do it all detector. From someone who has had fantastic results and success with all 3 of those models and most recently the Equinox, I’m extremely excited. Just take a quick peak of Equinox treasures I shared in the few pics, just to give you folks an idea of what I’m expecting and then some. Some of my eye/ear catching from above info we've been provided so far.... - VIBRATION Mode built into the handle. I actually look forward to this feature and know of a few folks who will be very happy. They have taken this from the pinpointers and I feel it’s a nice bonus to have. Hopefully the rest of you enjoy it as much. - 2.9 pounds is the advertised weight. Heck that’s fantastic as it’s now even lighter than my Equinox. I’m a big fan of carbon fiber as well and glad to see they went this way for the Manticore. No more issues for us guys in the salt water for hours at a time. - Coil size selection. I’m a big fan of the small 6” round for the EQ and CTX and even bigger fan of the small 6” Ellip found on my VLF type gold detectors. Minelab says a new 8 x 5.5” semi ellip. Pretty excited for this one as many of us like the ellip and the heel/toe pin pointing and into rocks/brush and other tight areas. I’d hope CoilTek is working on a smaller coil as well as a 15” round for ultimate depth. Did I mention that we just don't sell detectors, we live with them? Looking forward to earning your business and helping you become successful. Thanks, Gerry 208-345-8898 Gerry's Detectors www.gerrysdetectors.com Gold Nugget Detector Field Training
  14. I received this message from my dealer: Manticores starting shipping to US warehouses yesterday.... You are number 1 on the list..You still wanting to purchase ? Response was yes please, just take my money... Great email to receive! Unfortunately it doesn't sound like I'll have it in time for an upcoming detecting trip, but that's okay I want to bring something I know well to uncharted territory. The Manticore will get a good workout at a particular Spanish outpost site that I think could be a good fit for it with plenty of time to experiment with the new settings.
  15. Every video that I have seen so far just skimmed over Goldfield mode. I would like to know if it’s on par with the Nox or better. This would be huge for people detecting small dinky gold (or nugs) in trash infested areas especially with target trace. What do people think? Anybody hear anything different?
  16. Would like to establish this as an unofficial Specs and Features Thread to supplement the below "official" features list with additional information gleaned from videos of the prototype units and verbal utterances from ML reps. Please cite your source of information. Prefer this not to be a thread for discussion, debate, or speculation. Just the facts as we know them. MANTICORE High Power Metal Detector Our most powerful detector yet, Manticore finds targets faster, more clearly, and in even the most challenging environments. With impressive capabilities and technologies, nothing will go undetected. More effective than even the most high-end models in the market, Manticore brings power, precision and accuracy to detecting in a way that wasn’t previously possible.

BUILT TO LAST: A three-year warranty with software upgrade capability allows detection far into the future. Link to Minelab Manticore Product Page: https://www.minelab.com/usa/metal-detectors/manticore Excerpts from the Quick Start Guide: Some feature Highlights: 4-way menu navigation Location Keyed mode designations (e.g., All Terrain, Beach, Goldfield) with multiple variants of each mode. 5 for All Terrain, 4 for Beach, and 1 for Goldfield equals a total of ten Multi-IQ+ modes. Standard Equinox Single Frequency Selections - 5, 10, 15, 20, and 40 khz (no 4 khz that was added to Equinox in a subsequent update), but unclear whether these choices are mode specific like on the Equinox, they appear to be independent of mode. Confirmation of 2 Digit/2D Target ID, Target Trace, and what appears to be customizable 2D discrimination patterns. "Ferrous Limits" feature which looks like a more sophisticated version of Equinox's "Iron Bias" but goes to 2D target trace disc (wraps around non-ferrous conductive range). Multiple audio selections appear to be fully customizable across modes including normal, enhanced, and "continuous pitch" VCO-like audio (i.e., you are not locked-in to mode-specific audio types like difference between Goldfield and Non-Gold mode audio). Noise Cancel is quick, hopefully it is also effective. Also has a "Continuous Auto" noise cancel feature. Battery has a minimum 9 hour run time and takes 7 hours to charge full from empty.
  17. As usual, no BS from Gigmaster. Excellent problem/diagnosis video showing where Gig's Equinox detectors all leaked and making a correlation between the similar charging port on the Manticore.........
  18. WHO has theirs>>>>Sound off!!! 😁🙄
  19. I watched a YouTube video demonstration, it was somewhere in Europe, and these different people had a turn at searching/detecting with the Manticore across an open field. They were swinging so fast, it looked like they were trying to get to the train before it left. The coil was about 3-5 inches above the ground and no overlapping at all. It looked kind of hilarious. I swing about 2-3 seconds in one direction. These guys were about 1.5 seconds in both directions. I hope a person doesn't have to swing the Manticore that fast to use it properly.
  20. https://www.detectorprospector.com/forums/forum/63-minelab-manticore-forum/ Post your Manticore stuff there, not here.
  21. First let me mention I'm a total newbie (except playing with cheap "toy" metal detectors in my childhood). I want a good (or the best) all around detector, mostly for treasure hunting (finding old coins/jewelry and maybe some small gold nuggets if possible). I want to choose a detector that I can live with for many years without outgrowing or having to many technical issues with. I only want one, and I'm not planning in investing in another one for at least 8-10 years. I have read about all the models above and came up with these three as they seem to fit the bill. I actually went to a shop and tried the Equinox 800 and the Deus II. Ergonomically the Deus II felt way better than the Equinox 800, but the Equinox 800 seems easier to operate and maintain (magnetic charger, only one device to charge). Battery replacement when/if the battery goes bad is easy on the Equinox. Not so much on the Deus II. To me it seems a hassle to charge both the main unit and the coil. And it seems a little iffy to change battery in the coil (involving knife and glue). I don't know about the main unit. Is it possible to swap the battery in it by yourself? In many videos I have watched, the Deus II seems to react quicker and also have better depth than the Equinox 800. I am a bit confused now which one I should get. Then there's the upcoming Manticore (a little too pricy, but if it's that much better than any of the other two I'll still consider it). In the shop I actually got an offer to swap in the Equinox 800 for a Manticore when it becomes available without loosing too much money if I choose to upgrade. Didn't get that offer on the Deus II. To summarize it: Deus II: Pros: 1. It felt sooo good in the hand - like driving a fancy expensive car 2. Seems quicker, might go deeper? 3. User upgradable firmware adding modes and fixing things Cons: 1. I'm worried about the batteries life span and charging hassle 2. Doesn't seem to find as small objects as the Equinox? 3. Seems harder to configure if you're a newbie Equinox 800: Pros: 1. Easier to maintain. One magnetic cable to charge it. Nothing more. Easier to swap out the battery if it goes bad. 2. Better at finding smaller objects? 3. Easier to configure for a newbie? Cons: 1. After testing the Deus II, it didn't feel right in the hand. Like going from that fancy expensive car to an old used cheap car. 2. It's older tech than the Deus II I guess, might still be as good or better? 3. Read about leaking water and cracking at the charing port. Is this a real problem? And the Manticore isn't released yet, so I guess it's hard to know how it performs? Will it solve all the cons I've listed for the Equinox 800 and get some pros from the Deus II? So right now my choices are: 1. Get the Equinox 800 right now and play around with it for 1-2 months, getting a feel for it. If I like it I'll keep it. If not I'm upgrading to the Manticore and hoping it will be a better experience. 2. Get the Deus II and be stuck with it (not gonna even check out the Manticore as I won't get a good deal upgrading it). Which route should I go and why? Am I wrong about my pros/cons list?
  22. While waiting for Minelab to announce the release of the Manticore I've been watching a few hunting/review videos of the competition - Specifically the Deuc II and the Legend. My main concern that I mentioned in my introduction post is determining when aluminum, specifically pull tabs or parts of tabs, is under the coil. In my common hunting grounds pull tabs are common everywhere. It seems those machines are totally unable to tell if aluminum is under the coil or a gold ring. To eliminate tabs a huge part of the jewelry TID's also must get eliminated. In one example I watched the reviewer scanned dozens of pull tabs he had collected and a dozen or so gold and silver rings that all varied in a range of 17 to 37 on his machine. Other than on a beach, if I even had the desire to dig up every pull tab the area would look like a bombing range when I was finished. And, with the greater depth of new detectors many the holes would be a foot deep or more. I really have no desire to dig up thousands of pull tabs. So, the question for me is whether the Minelab Manticore is going to be able to identify a pull tab or part of a tab vs. a gold or silver ring? I don't see how the TID's are going to be any more accurate in this regard than existing detectors. The only advantage it my have is the Target Trace which shows the shape of the electromagnetic field around a target. While this is going to help eliminate aluminum cans and slaw, is it going to provide an advantage in identifying the various pull tabs vs. a gold ring. I'm thinking pull tabs are going to come in with a similar shape to rings and coins on target trace and be of little value distinguishing between the two. I'll go ahead and order a Manticore as soon as they are released but I'm feeling very disappointed that I'm going to probably not be able to identify pull tabs from jewelry with this machine.
  23. They may have done a fantastic job “wrapping everything up” as he says (1:20) other than the coil cable of course… 🤣 Sorry, it was just to easy. Minelab sure does a release event different than say a US automaker where they have a bunch of vehicles for the media and users to drive around, close doors, kick tires, go on extended trips etc… How sad Minelab, you could have built some test gardens and really had a good show of this, had a few Nox’s and 3030’s there for your customers to swing and compare over targets, but in typical “that’s right, we’re Minelab” fashion we just have to hold it up in the air and look annoyed when they ask us questions….. Minelab has forgotten who pays their bills, they’re no longer hungry for your business gentlemen (and ladies)!!!!!! If I hadn’t chosen to leave them before, the arrogance and lack of “give a damn” in this video would have cinched that deal… disgraceful. Toyota just introduced a new Tundra, they took people on a two day event…. (Video below), PS Minelab engineering, I’ve tossed in a “How to talk to your customers like you care” video below as a bonus … the Tesla Cyber Truck release event took everyone around on a drive etc, Minelab just looks at the customers like they’re peasants begging for bread, then tossing a 3 minute video on Facebook as their product release, pathetic, a real disservice to everyone who worked on that product, from R&D to the forklift driver loading the finished product onto the trucks. Coming from a country where you’ll be lopped off at the knees if you “tall poppy”, they sure think they poop ice cream.. Garrett, you’ve already proven you listen and care, and probably don’t need to however, this is a moment in time where you could put on a dealer/customer event the exact opposite of this fiasco Minelab did, do some gardens, etc have Steve, Gerry there etc, the engineers actually answering questions and REALLY blow this Axiom release into a new Galaxy and show Minelab how it’s done….. I'm involved in Victron Energy equipment and they just did a traveling roadshow…. Do one, prep up a small class C RV and travel America with all your machines so all the customers can experience the excitement we felt the week of the Axiom release… the “GARRETT’S BACK IN THE GOLD” tour. https://www.victronenergy.com/blog/2021/07/13/victrons-massive-north-america-training-tour/ DO IT!!! Show the world American manufactures still have it. Regardless, Garrett, Steve (and Gerry for test and input) thank you for your input into the Axiom, this company (Minelab) needs to be taken down a few rungs… what arrogance!!! The engineer below looks like he’s in a hostage video. Full video… if you call 3 minutes a ‘full’ video. Confirmation of chipped coils. https://www.facebook.com/MinelabMetalDetectors/videos/1972595979605361/ How it could have been done…. I’ll show you what impression that video left me with (and made me want to have another shower, I feel dirty after watching that ‘event’).
  24. I'm trying my best to share the knowledge as Minelab USA provided it to us. I found out the other day, those of us who enjoy the Equinox 600 and Equinox 800, their waterproof headphones are 100% compatible with the Manticore. Now this is interesting. The wireless headphones are not the ML 80's as is on the Equinox. They are also not the ML 100's as we have on the GPX-6000. Something new for us and probably better than the others. Let's hope. Today (Oct. 18th) we get to see what's Included. I realize this does not answer all questions but at least it gives us an idea that we'll be getting our initial shipments of a simple package similar to the Equinox 800. It will come with detector, an 11" DD coil with cover and wireless headphones with case. Anyone see anything missing that you expected? Again, if you have not put your name on a list, let me know. Just like with many other detectors in the past, I usually order more than most and get them to customers sooner. My 25 year Minelab track record speaks for itself. Thanks, Gerry
