My First Impressions Of The Manticore


Compass

Recommended Posts


M-Core on the beach is a no brainer...I found it to hit coins similar in depth to my tdi pro...may get rid of the tdi now..some people are still having problems with it in the dirt...they will figure it out eventually. Lots of adjustments user friendly screen..you get the big coil for it? I here they are trickling out...

In the buy and sell section there is a user who is looking for a TDI pro and would trade it for his manticore.  in case you haven't seen it

Thanks Strick, I do have the M15 coil and have tested but not hunted with it yet. I was actually going to use it on this most recent hunt but forgot to bring it with me!

That user would be me Luis. 🙂 I would prefer to buy a TDI Pro without trading my Manticore or BeachHunter but whatever it takes.

The only reason I'm keep the pro right now is that I have a clean sweep coil that I really like...honestly I dont get to the big salt water beaches all that much...mostly hunt junk infested beaches here around the delta...

So in the "buy and sell section" there was a listing for a nice TDI Pulse Scan. The price seemed very reasonable so I was able to purchase it and still hang on to my Manticore. I'm now ready for some winter beach erosion.

Ok, wow. Coming from an 800 this is crazy.  A lot to learn.

I live in Wichita Kansas so not a lot of beaches here.  But… I did use it at some of our sandpit parks and it preformed amazing. Lots of coins and a sterling silver bracelet.  
In the dirt is where I am struggling and I know it’s all me.  Having a hard time with numbers and screen plus tone.  It will take time.

I agree that it will take time to better understand what the Manticore can do. I also think that learning the detector is a lot easier in the sand than in the dirt- signal, quick scoop and instant feedback. Someday I'll try the Manticore in the dirt/grass but hopefully by then I'll know a lot more about the machine.
