Garrett used to be #1 when it came to marketing. Minelab came along

August 11, 2019 08:41AM avatar
... and did a reasonable job of 'Marketing Magic' to play the game, even though a lot of the stuff they did with the BBS and FBS series units got a bit 'fluffy' at times and stretched the make-believe image. But they keep doing their best. Nokta / Makro has also done very well in their marketing department, using a lot of fact instead of fiction, so the competition is pretty good with some makers. I haven't cared for the approach Minelab has used for the Vanquish, and no hints I have seen so far as to whether it is a newer high-end model to replace the FBS group, or if they are working fast to challenge the lower, entry-level pricing of the Simplex+?

We should all find out, I would hope, that something will come along by Christmas Season. I just want to see more real-life looks of the detector with specs and such, and no more nutty useless videos.
