Re: What I Like & Don't Like about my Vanquish -

I'll start with what I thought was the good. I had the 540 Pro Pack. Build quality and balance are great with the 5x8 coil. Overall the display is great and really user friendly and easy. Armcuff assembly folds and pulls apart for compact travel. Really like that they made it to except AA batteries and also made a RNB battery pack for it available. Excellent. Machine swings great feels great with 5x8 coil. My little girl 10 yr old was easily able to swing it with the 5x8 coil and it adjusted nicely to her arm.

The bad

The 12" is way overkill for the machine. Doesn't balance well, EMI kills this machine in very light EMI areas with 12" coil. I actually couldn't use it in my old park where EMI has never been a issue with any of my other machines. This may have been due to a GB issue adding to it also. No issues with 5x8 coil. Hard to say being you cant GB it. Was able to cherry pick a couple deep silver dimes with 5x8 coil at old park. At some of my old sites I was able hunt with this machine in the mild trash with the 5x8 coil. It ran ok but experience alot of falsing and ghost signal when getting into heavier trash. It was still pretty easy to tell the false signals though for a experienced minelab user or someone familiar with the multi IQ machines. Other than that a awesome little machine for the price. My recommendation would be for serious hunters to spend the extra dollars and get the 600 or 800 EQ if your looking for a machine to hunt everyday with. Or if you already have a Equinox no reason to buy a vanquish when you already have a machine that can do everything the vanquish can do and more. Overall great machine and would highly recommend it to anyone.

The Equinox w/6" DD is more appealing,
