In short, there is no need for excess or for idleness

Thanks guys. I'll have to put more time on the vanquish . Have a club hunt this sunday at the beach so we shall see how the vanquish works there. What do you guys think? I was thinking of getting the 10 " coil for it but do I really need it seeing as I have the 12' with the 8" already? Thanks

Look at it this way: You're the Owner of a few businesses. The Vanquish 540 is your Foreman of your 'Minelab Fun-Detecting Company'.

You invest in your business by hiring Employees. The V-540's search coils are those Employees. Hire only those who are going to work hard and work well and do their job. Don't hire those who don't work well, can't handle some tasks, or are going to just sit around and not be working for you when you're trying to get a job done. Bad investment.

That's how I have always looked at things, and it's why my Accessory Coil Tote only has the search coils that are likely to be used. I either have a search coil mounted to a model that will be used most often, or on a spare lower rod and ready-for-use .... when I know they can work hard and get the job done for me. No lazy 'employees' just lingering in the tote, closet or corner that never get used.

For me, the 5X8 DD stays mounted and gets most of the work done for me just fine for the places I grab it and what I am after. If I need a bigger coil for a beach, wide-open grassy park or plowed field, it's time for the 9X12 DD. For ME the 2-Coil Pro Pack V-540 has my needs covered. No room, or desire, for the other coil.

You are the owner and get to hire who you want.winking smiley

I always know where my 'Foremen' and 'Workers' are.

'Fun' is the important part, and the Vanquish 540 can deliver.
